I Is For Irresistible
It's time again For ABC Wednesday. If you aren't participating in ABC Wednesday, you are missing out on a lot of fun. This week the letter is "I". I is for irresistible. My two granddaughters are simply irresistible. This weekend we drove 8 hours to get to spend one day with them.
Friday evening we met my daughter at Camp Yorktown Bay on Lake Ouachita near Hot Springs. She had driven up from Baton Rouge with several other ladies who were going to the Pathfinder and Adventurer Leadership Training. We knew that the girls wouldn't have fun at the meetings, and we knew they would have fun at Grandma's house. We drove home in rainy nasty weather. There had been a major power outage, and we drove for 50 miles without seeing any lights. It was dark, eerie and spooky. Autumn wanted to hurry up and get to Grandma's house, so she kept urging her Grandma to drive faster. Grandma told her that she had to drive safe.
Saturday morning we got the girls dressed in their beautiful dresses that Grandma had bought for them and went to church. They had a great time in Sabbath School.
After church there was a potluck. Rebekah really liked the chocolate cake. The cake didn't really go well with her white dress.
After the potluck we went home and the girls took nice long naps. They were really tired from all of the traveling on Friday. They had been on the road for about 11 hours. They are really good travelers. Later that evening we went to Big Bear's Opry. They enjoyed eating popcorn and Rebekah enjoyed the music. After one song Autumn was ready to go home. Gina asked her why she didn't like the music. Autumn answered, "I like the music, I just don't like the noise".
Sunday morning we decided that it would make more sense to drive to Texarkana and meet Cynda there. It would be the same two hour trip for us, but would mean taking two hours off of the girls travel time. When Cynda left Hot Springs, she gave us a call and we loaded the girls in the car and headed for Texarkana. When we reached the designated meeting point it was less than five minutes before Cynda arrived. That is as close to perfect timing as you can get. It was great to get to spend time with the girls because they are so irresistible!

Those girls are adorable, and of course, irresistible.ReplyDelete
At first I thought you might be just an adoring grandpa, but they ARE precious. Love how kids wear cake. Regular food goes in the mouth, cake prefers the cheeks.ReplyDelete
Considering the distances covered that was amazing timing.
