Between the ages of 13 and 17 I did a lot of babysitting...a lot. For a couple years it was to earn the money for a second week of summer camp and for the other years it was just to earn spending money for all the things your parents, rightly so, shouldn't pay for!

Those memories of long ago came rushing back as Anne's niece brought her daughter and son to be introduced to their great aunt. "Darling" doesn't even begin to describe them and the day we spent just watching them and playing with them.

Vacation days should be different from "normal" days they say--this one certainly spades!
