Last week, I told of how my mom & dad purchased a new camera while they were engaged and spent many a happy hour experimenting with all the settings. Well, this particular day they went down to the beach (in California) and took turns photographing each other. Looks like Mom is wearing a swimsuit cover-up. She always had on the cutest shoes! Guess that's where my daughters and I got our shoe addiction from. Sorry Mom...but it had to come from somewhere!!
My daddy passed away in 2001 and we all miss him so much. He was an angel daddy.
Okay, our first stop today was at the Dr.'s office, then over to the Lab to get some blood work done. I kept trying to reassure my mom and tell her everything would be alright. (Talk about role reversal). So when the time came, the most adorable Eastern-Indian man called my mom back and was the one to draw her blood. I can't tell you how cute he was to my mom. So I held her hand and told her, "Whatever you do Mom, don't look while he does it. Look away...just look away." I felt my hand start to get clammy and I was so worried for her. It was like being a young mommy all over again. But it was over in no time and she was SO BRAVE! Afterwards my mom said to the fellow, "I can just tell that you're a good soul." He smiled shyly and that's when I asked him if I could take his photo with my mom. He was so adorable about it and willingly obliged. : )
Next stop...the hair salon. Her last dye job didn't last as long as we'd hoped which I know she was so disappointed about. So we went in and took care of that this afternoon. Next stop...my daughter's house where Princess C and G live. They begged Nana (that's me) to read The Cat in the Hat. No problem...your wish is my command. : )
G.G. (for Great Grandmother) sat on Princess C's bed and listened to story time too. Notice the great hair color? : )
Next, each Princess wanted to perform a little song for G.G. Yea for Princess G!
Next came Princess C. Looks like everyone was pleased with her performance too! And don't forget to notice their mommy...My beautiful Princess, Emily.
