Trip to Texas, to see our girl...

Jim and I left Thursday afternoon and drove(We made it in less than 6 hours-I think Poppy wanted to see his girl more than he would tell!)to Fort Worth to see Cari, Mark, and Calloway. Actually it was more to see Calloway than anything. Even though Cari thinks we came so I could help her with a garage sale and Poppy (Jim) could babysit. On Friday we sat up for the sale, and then just hung out. We went out to dinner at Logan's before Mark had to sing at a recital. So we got to spend the evening with the girls! Saturday we started early, I think before most folks were out of bed, with the sale. We weren't very busy, but did manage to get rid of some stuff and make a little extra money. Poppy had a great time babysitting, playing with Calloway and taking her for walks to look for birds. She is so cute, crawling and trying to talk. Sad thing is she is growing up too fast and is just tooooooo far away. It is so much fun watching her learn new things and how important the simple things really are to us. Saturday night Mark and Cari had tickets to go see a Gymnastics meet in Dallas, so Poppy and I got to babysit. Yippee!!! Poppy let me have her most of the time since he'd had her on Friday and most of Saturday. Although Saturday morning for some reason I got to change the bad poopy diaper! That's alright, this ole gal aint forgot how and didn't mind one bit. I love my girl. The only problem is the weekend was too short, or either someone ran the clocks (and sun) around too fast. But in all, I am thankful I was able to make the trip and we had a good time. Gotta love the family when ya can! The pictures below are: The first two are after Calloway had been crawling around in the garage and got her legs dirty, Cari was washing them off in the sink and she would squeal, she loved it! Next, she got my cell phone and thought she had done something big. Then me giving her some snack crackers, and lastly her and Poppy.

Oh my goodness. Calloway is really changing so quickly. Not just getting bigger, but her looks are changing as well. I'm so glad you and Jim got the chance to go for a visit, even if it was too short!

Oh, what a fun time! That must be the greatest thing about having grandbabies.. visiting, playing, and spoiling! Glad you got to go and enjoy some good quality time. You needed to do that.
