Grandbaby Withdrawal

I'm suffering from a case of grandbaby withdrawal but I'll post just a few of the hundred or so photos I took last week.

The company D works for has an office in St. Louis (which is where son J also works) so he was able to load his briefcase, files and laptop in the new motorcycle trailer and work out of the MO office for a few days. We left last Sunday morning with friends M and R following us on their motorcycle as far as Leavenworth, IN for a great breakfast at the Overlook Restaurant. Here's a shot of the whole rig with a nice view of the Ohio River in the background. It's nice to have plenty of room to pack for a trip like this. Monday I sat with little J while mama J had a doctor's appointment then we spent the rest of the day shopping. Little J was a very patient little man. You've got to train them early, right?
Every store we entered, he had the ladies ooo-ing and aww-ing over him. But then, who couldn't resist this face?
They make a nice looking family. But I might be a little be biased :) J and J are going to be wonderful parents and little J is a very lucky little boy. I know they miss having family close by. It was nice to be able to spend a few days with them and I'm sure we'll get back again before too long. J starts back to work in a week but it sounds like they have a nice babysitter found. Though it's still going to be an adjustment for everyone, it will all work out fine. Little J is the youngest to straddle this Harley. But his Grandpa will have to wait several years before he can convince his parents to let him have a ride.
This is all for tonight. Happy Fall Everyone!

He has changed so much from the last pictures. He is so cute and his personality shows in the pictures. I can't wait to see and hold him one of these days!

We love The Overlook and eat there when we visit Leavenworth. DH's mother's family hails from there.
