I was very excited to have her come down and see us! (The excitement may have also been caused by the blue lollipop that got to have when we went out....note the blue lolli in my hand, and matching tongue...)
Each state (and US territories) has a little tree that is part of the trail of trees that encircle the larger one...Each one is decorated differently depending on where it's from, and who does it (Usually the decorations are made by school kids) We saw the trees for Connecticut where a lot of our family lives, Washington, DC where we used to live, Maryland where we live now, and also this one...Maine.
This is in honor of the little cabin in the woods that our family has way up North. It was a lovely little tree...what a nice time we had with Gramma Mindy! It's always sad when she leaves...On Sunday we brought her down to the train station, and I said goodbye....but I think I get to see her again in a few weeks, which is nice! Hooray for her school vacations!!
