Pennsylvania Visit - May 2014.
May 16-17, 2014: I had another chance to visit
with my son Jason and his family during a recent business trip. A gazebo was under
construction in the garage when I arrived. Kaitlyn was assisting her dad by securing
the screws to the brackets he is mounting to some structural cross members.
Megan also had a chance to help with that task.
The girls figured out helping dad was work and went out to play on the driveway
on a chalk line obstacle course with their scooters. When that was completed,
Kaitlyn washed the chalk off the asphalt.
Megan washed the chalk off her hands and posed for my photo.
In between the photos I took, I became the assistant for Jason on the gazebo

Dad downloaded the same game to the iPad while Megan observes.
The larger iPad makes the game play easier and more interesting. You can
see I prefer to take candid photos with no poses when possible.
Here is one of the "posed" photos in the living room.
Here is a good photo to show how tall they are. The light switch and door
knob are the markers to compare against future photos like this one. Jason told me
Katie is now tall enough to ride the big roller coaster as a nearby amusement park.
Megan should be tall enough next year.
Jason sent two photos of the gazebo completed on Sunday while I was on my
second day of driving from Dillon, South Carolina to Melbourne, Florida. The final
assembly was on the patio deck where it is anchored to the concrete slab.
