Today was a beautiful sunny day and about 75F. This morning we didn’t do much. This afternoon we left the RV at about 2:00 p.m. and drove east on US Route 40 to downtown Columbus. We hadn’t been there since Michelle was going to Ohio State and she’s been married 10 years now. We drove by Ohio State going north on High Street and stopped at Whetstone Rose Park where Michelle and Eric had their wedding photos taken. Not much happening there yet. The spring flowers were about finished and it’s too early for roses so we took a few photos of some of the trees and headed to Michelle and Eric’s.
When we arrived I was immediately asked by Faith to go up to see the bunkbeds. They had been separate on the floor before but this weekend Eric stacked them and the girls are very excited. You can hardly get Grace out of her bed. She has the top bunk. The photo above shows them both on the top bunk.
After that I pretty much had Faith on my lap the whole afternoon. She is very cuddly and affectionate. Grace is old enough now to do her own thing so at one point I watched TV with both girls. We gave them each a prayer bunny that says the “Now I lay me down to sleep” prayer and they seemed to be a big hit.
Michelle prepared a great meal complete with butterscotch pie for her father. She spoils him! Eric got back from his flight in time for dinner so we got to see him too.
They have done a lot of work on their house and it looks really good. I love the outside paint job. The house is a taupe color with mulberry colored shutters. They had redone the kitchen and now have a new table and chairs and they have redone the upstairs bathroom. We saw the kitchen and bathroom last spring but it looks so much different with the new table and chairs.
Arrangements have been made for Ian, Tracy, Caden and Lillian to come to Columbus on Saturday so we’ll get photos of the whole family!
