Grandmommy is an Associate at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY. But, living in Williamsburg, Virginia, she had never had an opportunity to visit the monastery itself. So on our way up to Albany, we stopped and took a tour. It's a beautiful place, and the photos below unfortunately don't show the scenic overlook over the Hudson River. When we arrived, Palm Sunday services had just ended, and the sweet smell of incense filled some of the rooms.

acted as a tour guide for us out-of-towners.
In Schenectady, we met up with Aunt Donna, who hadn't seen her sister
(Grandmommy) in about seven years!
After chatting for a while at Donna's place, we all went out to lunch.

Chris was delighted to see that Aunt Donna
(that would be Great-Great-Aunt Donna to him!) had blueberry yogurt,
They had some special bonding eating their yogurt together.
