Time to go! See my messy hair? That gets fixed later on ;)
We're leaving the parking lot. (We live in the parsonage at our church (where my Mom's Daddy is the pastor) so that explains the big parking lot.)
My newly braided hair against the messy hair we mentioned above. ;)
Watching the scenery go flying by!
Oh! We're here, after the long, 40-minute drive.
I can't wait to see inside! I haven't been here since March of 2012! And it's already 2013!
Once again, sitting pretty!
Isn't Daisy cute? She doesn't seem too ferocious when she wants you to pat her tummy! I wish we had a sweet dog like her. Too bad mommy's mom is allergic to some types of dogs. But she isn't allergic to Daisy..and she's a beagle mix......a possibility!
Woohoo! LOOK AT MY PIANO SKILLS! hehe! Mom knew how to play "Mary Had A Little Lamb" and "Here Comes The Bride" on the piano, so she taught me those.
Mary had a li-ttle lamb, li-ttle lamd, li-ttle lamb! Mary had a li-ttle lamb, whose fleece was white as snow!
Here, comes, the bride, all dressed in white!
Look at the pretty plants! (that black mark is not a mark on my arm. That's actually part of the plant, if you look closely enough.)
Daisy the dog: "Ouch! Those fleas! Scritch, scratch, scritch. HA! That got rid of THEM!" Well, actually I don't know why Daisy was itching. She doesn't have fleas, I guess it's just what dogs do! LOL
Here I am in the pretty backyard!
IT'S. SO. HOT. FOR. MARCH! I'm stayin' in the SHADE!
Aww man! Why does mom go make me see the pretty plants in the garden before going back in the cool indoors? (if you look closely enough, this is actually a bush or something. Not the ground)
Because of the outdoor grill, mom got worried that the smoke smell would linger on me, and I would smell like smoke, so she took me inside.
I sat on the chair with mom's big sisters purse, and some cake we're going to take home.
I kind of dozed off while the others were eating, playing baseball, talking and then eating desert....
Oh! I awoke with a start. We were getting ready to leave! Had I really slept for that long?
I patiently waited for mom, her little brother, her older sister and her mom to get their things together. (their dad was staying home.)
La la la la la.....
Hey hey hey, well whaddya say?! It's time to leave! I'll sure miss Daisy, my mom's grandparents (technically, they would be my great-grandparents) and the pretty scenery and garden. I enjoyed coming here....Josefina and Cecile will have a hard time deciding who will go with mom when she goes to her grandparents again for an Easter celebration!
and stepped out into the warm sunshine. What a pretty day, I thought to myself.
I tried to open the handle, but it was stuck or something! Mom opened it just-like-that. Humans are MUCH stronger than dolls, it seems!
Tired again, I dazed off some more....
I woke up again. I slept through the long, 40-minute trip and made it home!!
So we were home....
HOME SWEET HOME!!!
Wow! I loved going to my grandparents and getting to ride in the car and spend time with my mom and her family. I couldn't wait to share this with you guys and Josefina and Cecile! :)
Hope you're having a very blessed day now,
Molly and Madison
(with Josefina and Cecile!)
