Pre-Cruise Baby Fun

Grandma and Grandpa are going off to cruise on the high seas. They will have a much more luxurious stay on board the vessel than I used to have when I was in school, and much better than my friends that are still sailing the seven seas (although those guys will get paid to do what they do, and my parents will be paying).

Anyway, the folks decided that they wanted to spend some time with the Granddaughter before they set sail from sunny Redhook Brooklyn NY for 9 or 10 days of Caribbean Canadian delights, and sumptuous feasts. The price for this baby time was a nice dinner, and a park to walk the dog in. We accepted!

Now my parents have a very modest pool for the baby to swim in, much smaller than Alison's parents, or even the Gillespie's neighbor's who shared their pool with Jackie during this hell week. But they made do, and Jackie didn't seem to mind. She had a ball, and once she was done, Rockie had the worlds biggest dog bowl to drink from. I think he might have gotten some pee, but he eats his own poop, so somehow I don't think he minds.

On to the photodump!

I think that was a lot more pictures that usual, and there were even more, but that would have been even more repetitive than what we had already. But who can get tired of such a cute baby? It was such a nice day, and Jackie was so pleasant to be around. Everyone had a good time, and it was a nice way to send Grandma and Grandpa off on their adventure.

7/25 Update - I had to edit this post because apparently the cruise was to Canada, instead of some place warm. In light of last weeks heat, Canada was probably a good choice.
