Avant Garde Vrbo in Valpariso, Indiana

July, 2020

Kathy, Jean, Daphne, Erin, Brendan and Owen

Pat, Brian, Bridget, Darren, Layla, Odin, Alissa

We ate pizza outside because of the Covid. It was fine until the wind started blowing and Owen kept chasing down napkins
At a grocery store, Erin was amused and horrified that someone grabbed a piece of chicken, ate it, and threw the bone on the floor

The door to the office, the living room and kitchen....The view of the kitchen from the dining room
Erin used the office extensively to take a couple of online classes

The pool and a sitting room. We also had an exercise room, five bedrooms and two bathrooms

The teens especially made good use of the couches in the living room

Odin a little under the weather....Rabbit!....Watching the rabbit....Playing with Grandpa

Layla playing a game with Erin and then Brendan....Alissa and Odin


Pretty flowers and landscaping

I was taking pictures outside when the girls inside stated taking pictures of me
Along with the pictures they came up with a story about me being a crazy person
They let me inside because somehow they determined I was rich
I was surprised they didn't write haiku about me

Fun in the pool

Alissa's pictures in town....Erin and Daphne....Owen happy with new vinyl

Brian cools his feet...Layla....Playing with Odin and Vinny's rocket men

Layla making noodles with Uncle Brian

Exploring the fireplace....Odin

Odin is impressed with Lady Kathy's pretty socks....Alissa and Pat....Odin studies a water bottle....Layla likes her fan/water bottle

Erin braids Layla's hair....Notice how Layla sneeks a look at Erin during picture taking

Pat also got his hair braided....And a haircut not long after this vacation

We had a little baby shower for Bridget

A special gift from Pat....A giant rainbow cake that lasted several days and was delicious

There was also a surprise party for me

Great picture and wonderful bottle that keeps water cold for 24 hours! Yes, I timed it

And finally, a surprise party for Jean

A poker game


My Dad said to always take a picture of the here they are
