May 24-26 Cora's Visit

"Granddaughters are angels sent from above to fill our hearts with unending love." –Unknown

One of the best parts of being in Ithaca for the summer is the time we get to spend with our Pennsylvania grandkids. The very special part is having each come on their own to spend time on The Pearl. They have a wonderful time and so do we.

This was Cora's third visit and we had fun painting rocks, making beaded bracelets, playing at the Children's Garden, Stewart Park and riding on our little runabout. We truly enjoy having one on one time with our grands...they are all very entertaining and we learn so much about them.

Cora is becoming quite a little artist.
We had perfect weather for Cora's visit and we really enjoyed time on the lake.
The name Cora means “maiden” or “daughter,” the name is found in classical Greek mythology referring to Persephone. She was the goddess of Spring, and the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, who was the goddess of agriculture. Maybe this is the reason Cora loves nature...leaves, flowers and bugs.
Making jewelry seems to be a favorite things to do for all girls. 
Ithaca has so many wonderful parks and some of Cora's favorites are the Children's Garden and Stewart Park.
