Words of a grandma....

A truly wonderful and amazing thing happened on Christmas Eve; little Hayden Eric showed up, almost right on time, and what a Christmas gift!

There was no question that he would be loved...but there was NO CLUE that he would just steal your heart right away, until I laid eyes on him and held his sweet little self. There really is something special about grandbabies and now I know it for myself!

He calls me "Nan"...well, not just yet, but soon!

His mom and dad are pretty smitten by the little guy too..

So, the travels of the year and the fun of Escapade have dimmed in our rear-view mirror just now. Not wanting to miss seeing this little guy grow, we'll stay here in Virginia at Harryhogan and back in Maryland at Catonsville with the little man until around June, when the wheels will turn again for a while.

Just one more photo of the little guy we love to pieces...

With love from Nan!

Molly, so happy for you and all the wonders you will be experiencing with this little guy.

Randy and Terry said...

Oh, yes. Those grandbabies steal your heart even more than our own kids did, I think. Such joy they bring to our lives. So glad you and Bob are able to be there!

And he is a cutie!

Once we heard the first heart beat...then we held him in our arms that was it...There is no other feeling in the world like that of a small sweet baby snuggled in your knowing that they depend on you for so much. That is why we have ours now. We are all he has and we will be there for him always. Like Kris told his Mama...your not old Mama you just look old...

Good morning Molly and Bob!

I've been checking out your blog, Two Drifters Off to See the World, and reading about all the cool places and campgrounds you guys have stayed at over the years. It sure looks like you guys have had a wonderful time RVing all over the country!

But anyways, you're probably wondering why I'm contacting you. My name is Rachel and I work for a relatively new (and awesome!) company, RVC Outdoor Destinations. And I would like to invite you both (and your RV!) to come stay at one of our RV Destinations sometime in the future.

Now, who we are: RVC Outdoor Destinations is trying to redefine traditional camping and take it to the next level with our unique outdoor vacation concept that includes upgraded facilities and hotel-like amenities. RVC lets travelers enjoy some of the country’s most beautiful natural settings and recreational areas on their own terms by offering a variety of affordable lodging options, such as RV sites, yurts, cabins and cottages, all with a consistent level of quality. But what really sets RVC apart is the upscale amenities it offers with each of its properties, such as a concierge service, free wi-fi and cable, a coffee, beer and wine bar, fitness centers and modern swimming pools. Are properties are also big-rig and pet friendly too! If you want some more information or just to check us out, feel free to visit our website at
