That's John holding Charlotte Rose. She is so articulate for a 2 year old! And she is extremely friendly. No one is a stranger to her.
On Friday we all went down to Silver Dollar City. They are currently hosting their annual World Fest and featuring the Feet of Fire Irish Dancers. Wow! Even young Will was mesmerized by the dancing and the music! And Charlotte talked about the Fire Dancers all afternoon! But before we went to the City - we got to watch the water sprites swim and cavort at the pool. Here is Emily. Our first granddaughter is almost 8 years old and a fish in the water! Then there's Charlotte - she's a charming sprite who is learning to swim. And finally - Will. He loves to watch the sprites! At only just 1 year old, he isn't quite ready to swim with mommy and sisters yet but I'd say next year we won't be able to keep him out of the water either!
Sorry, Beansy. I had to put these two pics up, too. You are an amazing mother to your children! Our grandchildren are so lucky they got you for a mom. They obviously adore you and watching you with them, it's easy to see why! We love you, Jill! Thanks for being our grandchildrens' mom!
The family left for home yesterday at 5:00 am amid snow flurries! Yes, we had flurries all day yesterday. And bitter cold winds. They decided to continue on home instead of stopping overnight and made it home about 3:30 our time this morning. John called and said they made it and were going to take it easy today with only unpacking to do and lazing about to get their energy recharged. I think the recharging was for the parents - the kids recharge on the run!
We loved having them visit and can hardly wait till next year. Hopefully they will be coming again next spring for what appears to be an annual visit.
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to visit here. More next time.
