But not before the most memorable weekend continued to be full of love, fun, and enjoying our time together.
All the 'Grands' did a wonderful, awesome photo shoot with Jennifer Blackwell.
I can't wait to get our cd of the moments she captured. Even after the first location that contained 4 different segments, they were all so cooperative. My policeman son said to his father, "We got all the kids to smile, just not all at the same time. We got all the kids to sit, just not all at the same time!"
Of this enire time, there was only one small snag, I had dropped one of Giggle's new bracelets. It is not uncommon that the grams is asked to hold many things and my hands were so full, I adapted to the waitress technique of using the forearms to hold the many items. Somehow, one item slipped through my fingers and I was not aware of it till each 'Grand' came to retreive their items. With a photo shoot on a time line, there was not time to go to every single place they had their picture taken. We looked at the first place but really had to move on with the photographer. To calm her disappointmet, I promised we would come back after the next location and spend more time looking.
The next location was to be at the old train depot. We made the quick drive over only to find it was under construction and the train was looked behind cyclone fencing. Monkey Man was so cute..."They are building it better", he said. We agreed and promised the next time they come for a visit it will surely be completed and we can spend the whole day checking it out. As we walk the train tracks, Spitfire and I had the most cuties conversation. "My ears hear a train!" "Yes, so do mine." "Your ears hear the train?" "Yes, my ears can hear the train". "My eyes can see the train!" "Yes, my eyes see the train too!"
Then she saw her dad who was just ahead but blocked by a tree until we turned the curve. "Daddy...does your ears hear the train?"
Spitfire played peek a boo...
It was soon time for presents...
and Giggle's wanted to change into her Kaiya Eve petty skirt for the party.
She also needed some love from her daddy.
After everyone else had gone home, and before it was time for bed, 3 little clowns played Jack in the Box...
