Cynthia and Nathan London recently returned from a sun and fun week in Ocean City.
Our family – Roger and I, our daughter, Ruth, and grand-daughter, Hannah, son, Roger, and his wife, Sarah, enjoyed a week in Rodanthe, N.C. What a relaxing week we had especially the first day with the girls going for a message and the guys and little Hannah going to the pool. We enjoyed the beach and the pool. Hannah was something else swimming in the pool. Another day we visited all the lighthouses in the Outer Banks. Another day we went to Kitty Hawk to see the Wright Brothers exhibits. Our highlight was when Roger and Sarah showed us pictures from their trip to Ireland. The very last pictures were sonograms!!! Yea, we are going to be grandparents again. Roger and Sarah are going to have a little one. Everyone is happy for them. Hannah told Uncle Roger and Aunt Sarah that they were going to have a little boy. The sex of the baby hasn't been determined yet, buy as they say, out of the mouths of babes.
Mary Lou and Herb Southall had house guests last week. Their granddaughter, Casey Wilson, and her boyfriend, Jason, came to visit. Casey brought her mother's ashes (Joann Wilson) for interment. During their stay they visited with sister-in-law Linda Barton at her home in West Chester, Pa., followed by a visit to the Inner Harbor the following day. On Friday the entire family gathered for a crab feast. Those attending the crab feast were Mary Lou and Herb Southall, Roger and I, Casey and Jason (who ate steamed crabs for the very first time), Shirley and Don Morse and Linda Southall-Barton. On Saturday Roger, Casey, Jason and I went to Lancaster to visit the Amish. Casey, who is from Florida, is interested in the life of the Amish, so we scheduled a trip for her to Lancaster up close and personal.
