Our birthday boy

... almost.

Ralph and I both had a day off Friday so we visited our children at the University of Hartford.
It was a brief visit because they both were in the middle of doing stuff. They have busy schedules, that's for sure.
We sat in the van and they stood outside the passenger window to chat.
On Monday Cameron turns 19, but we won't get to see him until late Tuesday.
The next big decision is what kind of cake to have for him on Wednesday. :-D
That's Allegra in the background; she didn't want her picture taken, and I tried to comply. I hope she doesn't mind that she is partly in the photo.
And that's yours truly in the side-view mirror, capturing Cam.

After we saw thems we went to Advanced Wheels of Technology in East Granby, Ct. to put a deposit on a mini-van that will be modified with a ramp, etc. for Ralph. Yippee!!
It will be so nice to have a smaller vehicle. His full-size Ford Club Wagon has more than 150,000 miles on it. It's big, and the lift is so, what's the word? cumbersome, I suppose you could call it. having a fold-down ramp is so much more convenient.
And did someone say cup holders? The mini-van has too many of them to count! haha

On the way home we stopped for an early dinner. All in all, it was a perfect date day for us.

An early happy birthday to Cameron! I bet you can't even begin to fathom how he got to be 19 already, can you?

Sounds like you and Ralph had a lovely day out together and if I remember correctly, the weather was gorgeous!
