Up Up and Away

We have not been up to see our youngest sweet daughter and her angels since last July
(which by the way was when she helped me to set up my blog).

My husband is retired and working part time as a school crossing guard...for an elementary school and a middle school.

Because school is still in session he must remain at home....

BUT:

I found an inexpensive (better known as cheap) airline ticket....
so I am going "Up Up and Away to visit them",

while Papaw stays home with the puppies,
and crosses all the little kiddies safely across a very busy street corner.


I am leaving on Fri. April 18th for nine wonderful days of hugging, kissing, tickling, laughing, listening, and listening, and listening, and listening to lots of stories told by a 4 yr old,- a 6 yr old,- an 8 yr old,-a 12 yr old,- a 17 yr old, and just maybe -a mommy and - a daddy and I will have a few minutes to get a word in edgewise!!

WAIT A SECOND:

I did say I got cheap tickets..

I just wanted Papaw to know that we're ready to go scoop up his little dove [no matter what contraption she comes soaring in on!]. ;o)

Hey - wait a minute - are you insinuating this family talks a lot! Well - (said with great innocence) I can't imagine from whom they get that trait (*blush*)!! :oD

Love you, Daddy! We wish you were coming, too! Lots of little arms send their hugs to you!
