This summer Glenn's Grandma and Grandpa Reynolds came to visit us from Wyoming. They had a family reunion in Iowa and decided, since they were half-way to us, they would come the rest of the way to New York and visit us! We are so glad that they came! We had a lot of fun with them.

|Grandpa brought a bunch of videos he thought we might like to watch. We did watch one or two.|
Glenn had to work most of the time that they were here. One day the kids and I took them to the Cheese Shop and the Lowville Historical Society. We hit the jackpot on the Historical Society visit for 2 reasons:
1. It is housed in the old Masonic Lodge building and Grandma and Grandpa were able to check out a lot of the historic Masonic Lodge items.
2. Grandpa collects postcards and he was able to pick up a shoebox full of old post cards from all over the US that had been donated to the Historical Society that they had no use for for a donation of about 10 cents a piece. I wish I would have gotten a picture of him with them. He had so much fun looking through all those cards!
On another one of the days when Glenn was working we went up to Fort Drum to check out the base and the museum there. Grandpa is retired from the Air Force and they both like to check out military bases. It turned out that Fort Drum was having some kind of field day with all kinds of military vehicles and weapons in a big field for families to check out. (I think maybe because it was so close to the 4th of July.) We had fun walking around and looking at the planes and other vehicles.
We were too late to go to the train museum next door though.

We passed this little lighthouse on our way over.

On their last night with us they took us out to eat at Boondocks, a restaurant near the office where Glenn has been working. I was truly spoiled rotten while Grandma and Grandpa were visiting as I think I only had to cook once! They spoiled us with some really tasty meals out!
We love you Grandma and Grandpa! Thanks for coming to see us and for spoiling us rotten!! Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
