Happy to see you; glad to see you go!

     As a grammy of six, I look forward to their visits.  Two of the families live in the Carolinas and one family resides in Ohio.  Having all of them in Pittsburgh at the same time is a rarity, but we usually can get everyone together once in the summer and at Christmas. 
     All three families arrived this week and my hubby and I were very happy to see them.  We swam at the local community pool twice, had a grueling 8 hour Idlewild Park and Soak Zone experience where "grammy" climbed the rope web to the top and then literally collapsed, had an extended family cook-out which included 6 rousing games of volleyball where everyone suddenly suffered from blurred vision when it came to designated boundaries and accused each other of cheating, saw about 50 minute fiery objects moving across the night sky playing follow the leader, and played "5 Crowns" into the wee hours of the morning. 
    Saturday came and two of the families loaded up and headed out.  Bye, bye, glad you came, so glad you're going!!!  Be safe!  The last of the three will leave on Monday, but as of now they are in the city riding the incline, having lunch, and showing their 5 year old the sights.  Our house is totally SILENT!!!  I am just sitting in the recliner with a blank stare on my face---- it's heavenly.
     Again on Monday morning, as we wave good-bye we'll whisper to each other, "glad you came and SOOOOOOOO glad to see you go!  Love ya'll
