As soon as Hailey arrived they did their traditional measuring to see if they are still the same size.
Dennis does not like to eat outside but I asked if he could just endure it for 10 minutes so we could call it a barbecue.
He did. And we did.
The conversation from Hailey went like this:
"Oh this is spicy brown mustard...do you have any regular?" So I get out a jar of regular. Then Hailey continues, "Oh Trader Joes mustard, that's really good! Have you ever tried their honey mustard? Trader Joes makes a really good honey mustard."
Hailey is a 'foodie" just like her mom was, and her Aunt Natalie.
They spent both evenings in the pool. I heard Elora say to Hailey, "Grandma Honey's bathing suit looked so small, but it fit!"
Like she was shocked I could get into it.
Then they started the girl thing of trading clothes. Elora wanted to wear Hailey's pajama pants, but her own night gown with it. Raising boys, we never had these issues.
Next afternoon Grandpa and I needed a nap. And the girls wanted to do a "project." So we went through the house collecting things. Here's what we found.(The cookie sheets gave them a flat surface on the blow up bed.)
About an hour later I peeked inside the door to see what they were creating.
And this is what they came up with. They organized a "book club" complete with invitations.
If you don't see your name here, don't despair. It's all about the planning. (I think BB and em are their code names.)
Then it was off to Sweet Tomatoes for dinner. I discovered this was the perfect place to take them. They got to choose their own foods, serve themselves and ....
...make their own Sundaes!
It was especially fun to take them, because both girls said they had never been there before.
Then it was off to see my Dad and Susan. I explained to the girls that they both have the same Great Grandparents. Hailey added, "By marriage." And we corrected her, "No, by birth."
It's hard at this age knowing how everyone is related. I don't think they really care how...only that they are!
Come back soon Hailey!!
