Girls Night Out

Well, I just thought I would let you know about my weekend with the grandchildren. It was my special time with the middle girls. I took Anna, Ellie, Esther, Cassie, Emma and Mercy. We had such a wonderful time. I picked four of them up Saturday morning and we went and heard the Goldman family sing in Grants Pass at the Art on the Street Festival or whatever it was called. They did great and I saw them again that night on the Channel 10 News . We had lunch with the Goldman family and Steve's Mom, Nita, after they performed. From there I took the six girls. We went to some antique shops in Grants Pass first and than stopped at several garage sales where they bought quite a few things. We went and gathered up some clothes for them and went to the motel in town. We got two connecting rooms where we could leave the door open and all have beds. We went swimming and had races and went in the hot tub. After that, we were pretty hungry so went two different places to get food and bring back to the room. We played Nerts and had a lot of fun. The girls than each did a song for me and than we had each set of sisters sing a song. After that, I had them do impromtu songs where I gave them a word and they had to make up a song. Boy, did they do good and we laughed a lot. We than toasted and prayed for the Sabbath day and the time we had together. We watched some of Animal Planet and finally went to bed. The next morning it started all over. We went to breakfast at the hotel, went swimming, packed up, and than went to the mall to shop for outfits for church. They had so much fun finding dresses, necklaces, shoes and accessories. Anna found a beautiful outfit and looked so grown up. Ellie and Emma found matching outfits and Esther, Cassie and Mercy found matching outfits. Maybe Karissa will put the pictures on her site. We ate lunch and than went to church. They had practiced a song together and did it for church and all each thanked me there too. It was a wonderful day. There was only one accident and that is when we were racing in the pool and Cassie and I collided. I'm a little sore but it was no one's fault as we were both going backwards. Thanks girls for a wonderful weekend with Grandma. You made my week!!!

Love,

Grandma Dot

John, Ginger and Tami - I don't know what you are talking about. You must not see right as I looked and can't see that at all!!! You better drink more carrot juice or take Vitamin A.

Love you,

Dottie - Mom
