SWEET TEA

Cinderella Moment

Tuesday I packed up my sidekick, HK, and we took a little two hour drive to my Tulsa daughter's to attend the town Homecoming Parade.  Our oldest granddoll, Kaylee, is a high school queen candidate.  She looked so pretty all dolled up and seated on the back of a convertible.  It truly was a "Cinderella Moment". . .

They had no sooner  (pun intended) taken their place in the parade line-up, when it happened.  The thunder rolled, the lightning flashed, and the parade was cancelled before it even officially began.  Alas (love that word), it was rescheduled for next weekend.  HK and I won't be making the trip again, so we'll miss it, but we enjoyed the rainy preview.

Just one more thing. . . 

I really like to think I've matured and grown above petty snobbery, but the truth is, sometimes I like to  brag a bit  flaunt my privilege a bit.  This is one of those times. 
This year I have my own personal "Fall Decorator" decorating
my house for the season.

Awwwww. Such a sweet time you are having with your little grand doll. I am so happy for you that you are close enough to home now that you are able to make a road trip ALONE!! Your oldest is such a beauty and hopefully the parade will happen. I hope her dress survived the pouring rain.
