Yesterday was wonderful!!!
My friend/sister, Carla, whom I've written about and hadn't seen in decades, came to see me!!!!
... As did her seventeen-year-old son, Dylan, and her ten-year-old daughter, Kenzie, whom you know about if you read my post from May 23.
We had a grand day in Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake!
Then we went to the LEGOLAND Discovery Center there in Grapevine Mills.
Oh. My. Goodness.
Take the time and money to go... It is so worth it.
It went way beyond my expectations. (Oh, but I hope I haven't just made yours too high.)
But know this: you can't go in unless you're accompanied by a child.
Click HERE for the website where you can read that for yourself... under "Plan your visit", then go to "Important information."
Here are some pics...
I know. You're wondering where Carla is. Well, the picture I had of Carla and her kids right before we went in Legoland wouldn't upload -it's actually (accidentally) a movie I made - because I forgot to set the camera right - and I'm technically challenged.
But back at the house Sam took pictures of Carla and me... that I proceeded to crop too much. (Ah, but I like the effect.)...
While at the house (in Colleyville) Dylan and Kenzie swam while Carla and I visited.
After that Sam took us to Kincaid's (in Southlake) so they could have a famous hamburger.
Then after Kincaid's we went to the Huffmans so Kenzie could give Caroline and Andrew little presents she'd made (which I forgot to take a picture of).
Ah, but she made ME 2 presents... and of course I got THEIR picture...
(Kenzie made Caroline a star and Andrew a baseball and they glow in the dark!)
In closing here's a picture of Kenzie with Caroline, Andrew and their mother and baby sister...
It was indeed a marvelous day.
I'll be smiling a while. :)
I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
Bear Valley Community Church held its fall festival last Sunday. It was FUN! Here are a few pictures (I put even more on facebook the othe...
Maybe I have too much time on my hands. (NO!!!!! ---- I used to have NO time on my hands -- so don't take time away from me now!!!) ...
If you live in Kentucky you tell folks which county you're from, not which town, well, unless, I guess you're from Louisville or Lex...
