New Grandson "Kolya" and Scott runs for Vermont State Senator

Kolya (formal name Nicholai Roy Garren) was born August 1st at 11:15 am by C Section at Sibley Memorial Hospital to our son James and daughter in law Morgen. He was 8 lbs 13 oz at birth, very alert and happy. And he's a red head just like his Dad and Uncle Sean! 
We're all very happy!!
We drove down to Washington DC and had dinner with James & Morgen on July 29th. They checked into the hospital that night but had a long wait before finally having a C section. Mom, Dad and Kolya all doing well and now home. We stayed around for the rest of the week oohing and aahing. Heather will be back for a week in September to help out and both of us will return in November. 
Scott is running for State Senator here in Vermont. There are 3 seats representing Rutland County and until now they've been held by Republicans. We are a Conservative corner of the State. But we're all hoping for a change this Election Day. If elected, Scott will serve an initial two year term in Montpelier. The legislative session usually runs from January into May so this would mean a change in our cruising life! We'll see!
Kolya hours after arriving!

Happy Mother Morgen

Yes, another red head!

And it's number 8 for Scott...
