Today my friend Gail and her daughter Abby headed back to St. Louis.
They arrived Wednesday...having driven through heavy rain much of the trip. We all went to meeting together that evening. JWs are family wherever they go!!!
Thursday brought very warm but windy weather most of the day. Abby got to meet my granddaughter and the two girls hit it off immediately. They are a year apart in age and about a foot apart in height. They really enjoyed some 4-wheeling out in the cow fields, romping all over the place and being active. All that gave Gail and me a chance to visit some! That night, heavy rain came through here...we got an inch or so. The temperatures dropped also. Because the girls behaved so well together, dgd got to spend the night here. Big treat for them both.
Friday, after a good breakfast, we all headed out to Shutterbelle photography. Amanda did a great job, including a couple of "girlfriend" shots.
Gail and Abby are both very photogenic!!!
After the photo session, ALL of us went to a new barbecue place for lunch...including Amanda, Ted and Andrew. After lunch, our gang made a dash through the grocery (found fresh turkeys for 29 cents a pound!!!) and then headed home. THANK YOU Gail for the lovely Italian dinner you prepared for all of us..including Katara's parents and brother. I am so glad Gail and Dianna got to meet and get acquainted. Shortly after our dinner, Amanda called to tell us that the photos are online (not all are edited). Wow..that was fast!
So now, Gail and Abby are en route home. The linens are washed and ready for our next visitors, whomever that might be. I was up waaaay too early this morning so I am not in high gear right this minute but will shortly go out to walk in this beautiful, chilly weather.
