A very nice day that started with a breakfast of French Toast, and as per usual, we ate nearly the entire loaf of Texas Toast. The surprising part was that Stacy ate more than Jackie, and usually it is the other way around, and on top of that Linda didn't eat anything. She was busy getting things ready for the Picture People, as we were heading that direction right after breakfast - and so we did.
Once we were at the photo place, we didn't have to wait too long, and we were soon in with a photographer who has a great deal more patience than I do, when it comes to that sort of thing. Jackie is still a very active 5-year old, who thought of the session as a great game and she wanted to play. Of course the photographer is used to working with all kinds of kids and so Jackie was actually pretty easy for her, and Stacy was even better. Stacy does pretty much exactly what you ask her to do, and then she'll hold the position as long as you need her to.
Once the session was over Linda wanted to wait, rather than have to drive back down later. This was okay, because the girls had seen a small train on the third level of the mall, and so while Linda waited at the store I took them up to go for a ride on the "train." It was a neat little set of linked cars that pulled around by an engine that I think is gas powered, though I may be mistaken. When the ride was over we went and had a little snack and then back to the photo store where Linda was viewing the pictures, and almost done. We didn't have to wait too long and then we were out the door, headed back to the van (we rode in the van to the mall). We drove home and then made lunch for everybody.
After lunch it was time for a nap (brain rest) and everybody took some time to relax. We were expecting some guests (Glenn and Anne Pickette) were coming for dinner tonight. They are the wonderful people who took care of Candy and Pumpkin while we lived in Pt. Loma. They came over and we had lasagna and it was very good. They had gone to an Italian restaurant that they liked and now we have one that we're going to be checking out more. Dinner was very good and nice to have some one spend the time with Jason too.
We all went out side to take a look at the stars for a short while and hoped to see an iridium flair, but for whatever reason we didn't see it. Perhaps it was still too early in the day, as it wasn't quite dark yet. Anyway, shortly after that we came back in and sat down to watch Scooby-Doo with the girls, because the Pickettes had brought the movie with them, specifically for the girls. It was a silly movie, about chasing monsters and bad guys, and the girls loved it.
Once that was over it was time for the girls to get to bed and then once that was done the Pickettes needed to get back home, and so the day was pretty much done. It has been a good relaxed day, and we actually managed to clean up a few things. Tomorrow I expect to see less activity, though you never really know what to expect. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayer. Take care and stay positive.
