I've just returned from Illinois visiting family.  Alan hadn't been in four years so we made a quick visit over Mother's Day and it was great to see everyone.  All my great nieces and nephews are growing and I got to meet my best friend Pody's little grand daughter Jane for the first time.  Jane was one year old in March.  They just happened to be in the area over the weekend so I was so glad to meet her.  

This is my niece Nicola and my great niece Dakota.

This is my great nephew Oliver with Alan and I.

This is my great nephew Henry -- isn't that hair fabulous?

And, this is Jane with her family -- dad Mark, mom Rachel, Alan granddad Rick, Grandma Pody and me.
And, Alan and I went with my brother and sister in law to a minor league baseball game while in Peoria -- the Peoria Chiefs.  It would not be a proper visit with Alan anywhere to not go to a baseball game!
