Aruba 2010

Mom & Maisie Maisie and I just returned from two nice weeks on the beach in Aruba with my parents. 

Maisie & Bob Maisie had lots of fun playing with friends and Bob was a good sport going on the seesaw with her.

Maisie spent many hours feeding the birds and would hold still for ages until the birds would eat directly from her hand.  Everyone was amazed with Maisie as she would sit so patiently for an hour or more at a time just waiting for the birds. 

Maisie, Carl, Sandy & Allan 12-10-10 Maisie couldn’t wait to see our friends Carl, Sandy & Allan and I’m sure that it had nothing to do with the treats and M&Ms that they spoiled her with everyday.

Breakfast with GrandpaMaisie loved starting her day by first finding her elf Mortimer and then eating breakfast with Grandpa 

Maisie feeding the birds with Jim Maisie has lots of friends on the beach and everyone is so nice to her.  Each day Jim would feed the birds and most days Maisie would join him.  It was cute this day when she went over to feed the birds with him and just laid down making herself comfortable.

Maisie and I had a really nice time and it was great to see so many friends.  This is the first year in ages that I went down to Aruba healthy but by the second day I had a bad head cold which unfortunately is still lingering.  Maisie too was sick one day so we spent that entire day in the room as she was running a fever but thankfully she soon felt better. 

It’s taken me a while to get this post up because of what we returned to when we arrived home.  While Maisie and I were away Eammon wasn’t having as good of a time at home as Georgia had some extremely cold weather which caused a hot water line in our garage to burst.  Eammon was dealing with the water leak, the mess, the insurance people, adjusters, plumbers and restoration contractors, all while also working…not fun.  Eammon did a good job of saving and drying out important items but it still was a shock to come home to all those important items scattered and drying around the house.  About half the drywall ceiling is down in the garage and after five days the heaters and blowers that were drying everything in the garage are finally gone.  After the first of the year the drywall will be repaired, everything will be put away and life and the house will return to normal.  Winter and the cold weather just started and I’m over it already, I’m not ready for the cold winter that the forecasters are predicting.
