Making a big spalsh

Nicole is seven years old, such a delightful age for an imaginative little girl who loves to sing (everything on her mind) and dance, and hula hoop like a pro, and color in over-sized Disney Princesses coloring books. Cinderella's dress has delightful rosettes all over it, which she has created; she may be a fashion designer if she keeps this up. She won an art award at school.

I bought her a baton today and took her to the playground. She came down the slide with a big splash and landed in a puddle. Covered from head to toe, we hurried home and she took a shower. I am now washing her clothes while she fakes a nap.

She put on her clean clothes and pink cowboy boots and said, "Grandpa, did you know I am part cowgirl and part human? I can even say, Yee-haw!"

It's hard not to laugh out loud.

With a promise of mild weather and sunshine tomorrow, I think we will go to the zoo. Photos forthcoming.

How I laughed at that fake nap. I took a bunch of those in my day, and now I'm wondering if my grandmother knew more than she let on. Enjoy the zoo with your rapidly-growing sweetie. Love your new picture! You are positively glowing.

Oh Linda. What fun! Being with a granddaughter is just the best, isn't it?

Have fun at the zoo! Susan

Fake naps can be as refreshing as the real ones.

Hope you have a blast at the zoo!

Nicole is a pistol. Such a character.

Grandkids are a parent's reward for surviving raising their kids. Have fun at the zoo.

Will you take her to see the new Cinderella movie? I've heard good things about it.

Your day sounds delightful, and I'm looking forward to seeing pictures.

Oh, don't you just love 'em? LOL Fakes a nap. We need another Kids Say the Darndest Things show, don't you think?
