Grace is my sister.
Sue, her daughter, is my niece. Sue is married to Mike. Their children (my grandniece and nephews) are:
Maria (husband Eric)
Ben (wife Sara)
Maria and Eric have two little girls, Cordelia (aged almost four) and Elise (just turned one), who are my great-grandnieces.
I think you can figure out the more direct relationship line to Grace!
Ben and Sara live in North Carolina, so it is a special event when they are able to come to Wyoming for a visit. Grace and I made a quick over-in-the-morning and back-in-the-afternoon trip to join in the family gathering. It was lovely to be with them for those few hours.
Here are a few of the photos I took.
