Girls Day Out

As many of you know, my daughter came from Paraguay for her brother's wedding. The plan was to bring her youngest daughter, Abby, with her. Brian was to stay in Paraguay with Elena, the oldest.

BUT... it was all a ruse! The real plan was for all four to come to the states, but that Brian would surprise his Mom with a visit! Amazingly, we all managed to keep that a secret! Even though five of us have blogs where we tell EVERYTHING!!!! It went off well, and dear Helen was totally thrilled with her surprise visit!

I was happy as well as, since that meant I also was able to see Elena, my oldest grand daughter, age 2 and a half. Last week we made a shopping trip with Elena and what fun it was.

Elena experiences Toys R Us!

Inspecting the merchandise!

She would say, "I want to see...a ver!"
Mixing her Spanish and English!

Then it was off to the mall to check out the clothes!
So many choices!

"How about this one?"

"Or maybe this one?????"

We had a great day. She ended up with a play set of cleaning supplies! Broom, mop, bucket, duster, etc. And a poodle purse...because a girl can never have too many purses!

What a delightful time you both had. It's positively awesome! If I only knew enough Spanish to be able to mix English and Spanish -- so great she's learning both so early.

Looks like so much fun. I'm happy you were able to have that time with that beautiful gradbaby of yours.

ahhh, very cute! You all did do an amazing job of keeping Brians trip a secret. Jackies blog almost had me convinced that Brian was not going!
