Great Grandma Baus

Cora recently had the amazing opportunity of meeting her Great Grandma Baus! It was quite a journey, but an extremely special one. Cora and I flew direct from Zurich to Washington D.C. to meet Marisa and Nana (Nana flew into DC the day prior to join in on the fun). After delicious Mexican food, a sparkly tour of DC Zoo Lights and one good nights' sleep, we piled into Marisa's car and journeyed over the rivers and through many woods to Great Grandmother's House.  

The visit to Ohio was short, but oh so sweet. Cora warmed up to Great Grandma in seconds, as if she had always known her. Great Grandma also gave her the sweetest little toy puppy, which I'm sure solidified their special bond. Cora only wanted to hold Great Grandma's hand or stand next to her during photos or at gatherings. We were also able to visit with the majority of my mom's family, whom had still never met Cora. Needless to say, Cora was loving being the center of attention! 

Great Grandma, at 93, is doing incredibly well. She is now living at an assisted living home, although she is still sharp as a tack and getting around just fine and enjoying all the activities her new home offers. She is such an inspiration and I hope we can all lead such a full and loving life. 

This about sums up our drive.
