(Back Blip) In July we took a long-anticipated family vacation. We rented a home on the Susquehanna River in Maryland, not far from where I grew up, and we invited our kids and grandkids to spend nearly a week together. Some of the grandkids had to work and couldn't join us, so maybe next year we'll have to do it again. We had a ball! Kayaking was one of the popular activities. (No, I didn't kayak-this time). The picture shows two of our daughters and two grandsons. Even those of us who watched from the shore had a great time.
