A fun visit with our granddaughter

Yes, we had Allayah for 3 days last week and had a marvelous time! It's amazing how much she has grown this year. Grandpa had to take off her training wheels so she could ride her bike and she was great on 2 wheels!
Speaking of Grandpa........Allayah was so happy to see him when he came home from work she jumped right into his arms to give him a hug. While we were grilling out she had to play a little golf with grandpa too.............she's getting better everytime she comes up. She even decided to wear a golf glove and here she is carrying her clubs!

Allayah still loves to play with the Barbie dolls & her baby dolls. We have so much Barbie stuff and she sets it all up in the rec room and plays so nice. She has 2 baby dolls that look like they are about 3 months old & we took them to the park and played with them on the swings. Someday (a very long time from now) she will make such a good mommy!

We got to do allot of swimming and her new swimming suit barely fit! She is one girl who could and does spend hours in the pool diving for toys or playing volleyball or games with me. That is a good thing too since the 1st day she was here it was raining.

We had to do some crafting of course so I taught her how to use my Cuttlebug and she not only made a birthday card for her cousin Alex but she made a bookmark and some images to take home and color. She loved using my new "toy" and also my glitter pens. Had to send a few home with her so she would have some to color with at home.

Our 3 days went fast and we had so much fun. My only regret is I never got one picture of her and I together but I did get a bunch of her to scrap. I also made a collage at Walgreens of some of the fun things she did here, framed it and sent it home with her. She loved her Hannah Montana backpack I got her for school and this has to be the first time that she loved all the clothes I got her and took them back so she could wear them to school. We can't wait until she comes up again!
