It's so Good to be Home Again

Our jet landed, and we hit the ground running.
Of course, we wanted to make contact with the kids
and it' didn't take long and the cells were buzzing
and we quickly organized a supper BBQ.
I knew immediately that the unpacking and all that stuff could wait.
My wonderful hubby pulled out the patio furniture
and got the BBQ cleaned up while I checked out the fridge
and ran to town to pick up some fresh groceries.

First on our doorsteps to arrive was our family of four.
Those wonderful little grandkids arrived and we all received
our long awaited hugs and kisses.
It didn't take long and all of us were enjoying
each other's company once again.
It's not very often that we get such an impromptu response.

Coming home for all of this is so worth it!

Someone is sharing some great exciting news.

Then out of the blue, in walked my daughter, Mikki
with a beautiful sun dress draped over her swimsuit,and I said,

"Wow!, You look like a Princess!"
Who would of known that those words, would of changed her life.
(Most of the women in our house are sporting very casual clothes.)

That comment took the cake!
Our little Levi had never seen a Princess before
and he just couldn't imagine that his auntie was a Princess.
You all probably remember your first fairy tales
and all the excitement and wonder and mystery
of all the truths and myths that we loved
to dream and create in our little make belief head spaces.

Well that's just what happened to Levi,
he was experiencing the real world of a Princess.
This Princess even jumped on the trampoline with him.

Later, I asked Mikki,
if she would like to take Levi and pick up their favorite ice-cream.

Oh my goodness, the story goes on...
They entered the grocery story and this little Munchkin
takes off away from her and ran up the grocery aisle
to the first person, and said,
"Excuse me, Excuse me. Do you know that my Auntie Mikki is a Princess?"
And of course the man responded, "What?"
"Do you know that my Auntie Mikki is a Princess?"
Well as you can best imagine there was one very embarrassed Princess.

The story remains sketched in our minds and we all smile at our Princess.

Meanwhile I'm enjoying the rain, unpacking, and sorting pictures
and feeling the pleasant atmosphere of being Home Again.

More to come!!

    Welcome home....it sounds like the homecoming was as good (?) as the vacation. And of course, a princess must belong to a king and a queen. So hopefully your highness's will be settled back into the castle shortly and awaiting some social time. Can't wait to hear all about it...Elma

    Welcome home, Marg! I saw on Judy's blog that you are back. All this Royal talk is so appropriate - did you visit many castles on your holiday? Hope you had nicer weather than we've had this spring. Dairymary
