Late Breaking NEWS!

September 1, 2018
Severn, Maryland



We interrupt this lengthy blog series on the Great Smoky Mountains to announce the birth

at 9:42am on September 1st of Colin Harrison Iwanowski, brother to Celia Claire,  son of  Matthew and Carrie and our new grandson. 

We managed to get to Virginia in time for this but both of us have had horrendous colds since returning, guess that’s a hint, and haven’t been able to visit this precious baby.

But as soon as we are confident we will bring the family no germs we’ll be going to meet this sweetheart in person.

They are home now and all are fine and adjusting to this  new four person family.

They got outside for a family portrait.   It’s the wind blown hair look.
