Being in a high-risk group can be pretty awful. In my case, it means that my immune system can’t protect me in the event I meet COVID 19. I have been missing my grandchildren and came up with the idea of going to the Dinosaur Place in Oakdale, CT.
The adorable masked ones modeling with the dinosaur are my grandchildren ages 4, 8, and not yet 2. They love dinosaurs and this outdoor entertainment venue has 50 dinosaurs that can be seen along the trails. There are playgrounds, a Splash Pad (always check in advance to make sure it’s open), a snack stand, and more.
My granddaughters remembered all the happy times at my house, which sadly stopped when I went into treatment for cancer. I ended a year of chemotherapy just as the pandemic was recognized and shutdowns began. My grandson was a baby when we babysat him, so he is getting used to us all over again. Having an open-air venue to visit with them was just wonderful.
Family means everything to me. Maybe that’s why I write about vampires with families. My novel Vampire Princess of New York is available at https://www.amazon.com/Vampire-Princess-York-Arnhem-Knights-ebook/dp/B01LWXYX1G
