Hope Meets Her Grandfather!

We recently took a trip to Oklahoma City to introduce Hope to her Grandfather. The main reason it took so long to accomplish this was Hope's car seat issues. She had a real fear of being confined to the carseat and it took a while to get her to the point we felt comfortable in attempting a 3.5 hour trip. She acutally did quite well. We left early and came home late so that she would be more likely to nap for a portion of the trip.

She really had a lot of fun and was very entertaining. My step-father was excited to meet her. At times like this I really miss my Mom.

It did not last long but Hope sat with him long enough for a couple of time she will be more friendly...her little world has changed so very much (for the better) in the last 6 months.

My moms climbing roses out on the deck. Beautiful!

The bangs are a little long...we are trying to let them grow out.

I forgot my camera...can you believe that but my sweet sister-in law Janet saved the day and recently sent me a disk with all these great photos on it. I love her really takes awesome pictures. Thank you Janet for everything!!

It was a good day we enjoyed lunch and apple pie, my step-dad's favorite and got to see my Mom's rose bush in bloom and spent some time at the cemetary.
