Me and Elsie Mae

When asked what her name is she will say, 'Elsie MAE Dar'NELL.
We drove over to Coalville where Corey is working, he is still in construction. This is the giant Elk antler chandlier that is being hung.
The house as you walk up. The owner wanted the 'Old' look. That red roof is pre rusted metal roofing. The used Weathered wood from outside stuff very old. This is a sprawling ranch on 50 acres. A lot of money still available to some business men.
Above is in the small restaurant were we went to have dinner. All the kids wanted a turn or two on the pin ball machine, including Elsie. That is Chase in the foreground waiting her turn.

But on the way home Elsie caved in and crashed.

Today Dick and Joan came over to visit. We had a great visit, but Joan had to goto work.
Later we went to Grandma Carol's house. and guess who showed up. Maddison, Corey's oldest daughter. She is beautiful. She was with her boyfriend, a nice guy. I was so impressed with her desire and passion for reading that I found two of my books for her, can't have her missing the greatest unheard of author in the family. She seemed pleased.

When we arrived at Carol's, Elsie wasn't up yet. When she got up she had to have her dad comb her hair so she would be presentable for Great GRandpa jack.

Notice how loving she is, took to me quick, didn't take but a few gold dollars, some sketching and a magic trick or two. The magic coloring book. Hey, I'm good looking, I don't have to bribe the ladies. hahahahaha

One more of the photo ops she insisted on having.

I even got a few hugs in between these shots. I did get a video of her singing her ABC's and saying hello to her Grandpa jack back home. Jack was going to flyout, but an emergency arose and he skipped (regretfully).

Elsie toured our playhouse here. Loved the motor home but she was tired and we parted. She is a doll of course, and I am not one of those silly Great Grand Parents!
Thanks for visiting,

How wonderful that you are with family! I'm sure all those Grandloves have you both wrapped around their little fingers. I imagine your grandson gets a HUGE pleasure out of showing Grandpop Jack what he's up to in the construction biz. Enjoy ENJOY ENJOY!!! They grow up so fast and there is only so much time to ENJOY!!!

I remember when my daughter was Elsie Mae's age. That is such a fun age. Glad you got to spend some time with her.
