Warning: another family-first post mostly about the grands. Read at your own risk.
We had not got around to attending Nikki Dee's Saturday morning Music Together class all year, and since the semester is rapidly winding down, we decided to surprise her this past weekend.
Using a very old email to find the starting time, we found ourselves in the parking lot 45 minutes early, so we headed over to Baker Bobs for coffee, biscuits and a paper. ↓↓
Some of the best pictures, at least by us amateurs, are mistakes as is this one out of Baker Bobs window. That's ghostly me in the reflection which Cuppa didn't even realize was there when she snapped the photo. ↓↓
When we did get to class, Nikki Dee was quite excited, so much so that, according to Daddy, she didn't quite get into the music part of it as much as she usually does. She hugged me. ↓↓
And slouched all over me in a quite weird and distracted sort of way. ↓↓
We all did get into the rhythm eventually, however. ↓↓
When it was over, she wasn't done with us and preferred to go home in Buppa Car. First, however, we all walked walked along the river walkway where the silk lilac trees were in fragrant bloom. ↓↓
Apparently, she thought the old Bupster couldn't make it back to the car and required a little push. ↓↓
No sooner had we got in the car than she started babbling about going to the restaurant. We found her request very difficult to ignore, and she was quite delighted to be at A&W with the old folk. ↓↓
The next request was to go to Buppa House, which we also did before taking her home for a few hours of relief before we babysat for the night. Yes, indeed, after babysitting all week, we ended up doing a lot of the same on the weekend. Saturday night was a special treat for Mom and Dad who went out to celebrate their anniversary. Although it was extra duty for us, we all seemed to have a good time. ↓↓
