Welcome Kelli, Adam and Nora! We're delighted that Kelli "Raia" Dickson and her sweet family moved to Colorado. I met Kelli sledding in Maryland when I was 11 and she was 2. I assured her parents (and they believed me!) that even though I was only 11 - I was a very capable babysitter. And so began a very wonderful friendship for the Raia's and Hanou's. Joe Raia would come to pick me up to babysit, and end up staying for a half an hour (sometimes longer!) to visit with my folks. To this day my parents make it a point to get together with the Raia's every time they go to Maryland and quite often end up staying at the Raia's house - with or without the Raia's in town!
We met up at Tiny Town over Labor Day weekend - and they joined us for an end of summer pool party in our neighborhood the next day.
It's great to have Kelli in Colorado and a great chance to see her parents and brothers more often!
