Maya and Jada, Dog Lovers




The day with my son's family was so fun. All the girls are growing so very fast. Maya is all legs and arms. Jada is catching up fast. Wall-E was enchanted with them. He loved all the attention they gave him while Zara was more interested in the kitten and when we would eat.



It is always hard to get a candid shot of Jada. She loves the camera ..... and it seems to love her. Wall-E, well, bless his little heart, is just plain homely.



Maya is gentle with Wall-E and he appreciates that. Isn't my daughter-in-law pretty?


Jada just likes to pose. She is posing with the candy. All grown up, she no longer begs for candy. She is more subtle ..........



Wall-E has chosen .......

Jada moves on to Mr. Martha. I can't help but wonder if I could achieve that position. Maybe not.


Maya likes to read and was excited to get a copy of my book. The other two weren't all that impressed with it.



No, this is not a candid shot. It is of Maya, but Jada is too quick for me. Always posing.

We had such a nice visit with them. They will be in St. Louis Monday to visit the arch. They encouraged us to go with them. I do not like heights ...... at all. I don't even wear high heels!

I don't want the girls to see Gramma wet herself high in the air, so I will be here at the kampground. No doubt scratching a new outbreak of my malady. It had subsided, now it is back. I am sure the insane heat wave has something to do with it. My last outbreak was in all the major sweat areas. This new one is on my hands. It looks like a series of ant bites. I rubbed my hands in Campho Phenique. I reek of camphor now. It is not an unpleasant smell to me. If it acts as an idiot barrier, I may start using it as cologne .......

Hehehe, I'm thinking the next time some idiot comes in with their stupid questions you need to hold up your campho phenique cover hands and chase them away!

Fun family photos. Hope that rash clears up.

Poor Wall-E. He IS lacking in the beauty department. But at least he's a published author.

I hope the girls enjoy the Arch. I never had the gumption to go up in it, but the museum under it was cool.

Champhor is such a childhood remembered odor. I loved it. Hope it works. Grandchildren are a joy and always work.

My granddaughter is in love with herself and all poses of her. I once took an unexpected shot of her in all her 'unposed' glory. (it wasn't pretty) and she still thought it was fantastic. I wish I had half her self-confidence.

Kids are so flexible. I can hardly even turn my head anymore!

I laughed when I read the line about idiot repellent!

Wonderful pictures! Yes, your DIL is so nice looking. The girls have really grown up. They're absolutely adorable.

I'm with you on the Arch... I'd love to visit (I think) but when it comes right down to it, I am not sure I could do it.
