Now getting there was not easy. On the 17th, I dropped Allan off at the Winnipeg airport as he was heading to Toronto and then I headed to Fargo. It was mid-April so I was not anticipating snowy weather--MY FIRST MISTAKE. When I got about 30 minutes from Fargo the roads got a little worse. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I absolutely HATE driving in the snow--especially on unfamiliar roads.
I got to the airport--and my knuckles weren't too white, parked the car and got to the counter. The day before American Airlines had a problem with their computers and many flights were cancelled. So the line at Frontier Airlines was pretty crowded--I guess lots of flights had been rescheduled onto all the different airlines. When I got up to the counter, my flight that was leaving at 1 was delayed and was not going to leave until 7:00. (Well, I had a connection in Denver that I would not make) The girl at the counter was great and switched my flight and I was actually going to land in Sacramento earlier than expected.
I got to Stephen and Daphne's and spent the night with them. It is always so fun spending time with all of them. There is never a dull moment. The next day I hung out with B and Georgia. Georgia is about the most girlie little granddaughter I have had. She loves to dress up like a little Princess, and it was so fun. And I just love her little voice. She talks constantly--I can't always understand everything she says, but that's okay. She would bring me books to read. The 3 of us went out to lunch and just had a great time. Jason came over to visit. When Hannah and Drew got home from school, Drew, B, and I played Monopoly.
Stephen made tacos for dinner and after dinner he helped Hannah with a project for school. He made Rice Krispie squares and formed them into a submarine. Hannah had done all the research and it was amazing. My favorite was watching him make fondant to cover the submarine. CRAZY. It was quite the family affair.
Daphne took me to the hotel and I waited for Allan who was flying into SF and driving to Sacramento. (He landed, got his rental car and headed to our hotel. He arrived about 1:30 am. NO, I WASN'T AWAKE ; )
We hung out with everyone, went to baseball games, In-N-Out, Mel's Diner, Target, played Apples to Apples. It was fun spending a lot of time talking to B about his mission. We had such a fabulous Sunday full of great events.
A few pictures:
Georgia combing Kiah's hair. The best part is when she uses her little mirror and holds it up so Kiah can check to see if she likes it ; )
We gathered outside after Church and unfortunately, our grandson, Jason had already left ; (
