Throughout her visit, her grandfather has been taking pictures of Cara and texting them to me. It's been a great way to "share" her adventure with her.
|They hit the ground shopping.|
|Not pictured: Grandpa holding the purses.|
|Helping to earn her keep by picking cherries.|
|They turned the play yard into a water slide.|
|The 80s have returned and they've landed in a retail store near you.|
|Another day, another trip with the chapeau.|
|What an amazing gift!|
About an hour later, I got a phone call. She was done with her haircut and LOVED it. She couldn't wait to show us her new hair. I told her to prove it and send a picture. No go. I worked a little harder, explaining that seeing it in person was still going to be a surprise, so she could just send me a sneak peek. Nothing. She really was sticking to her "surprise" guns.
So, now I have to wait about a week to see my child and her awesome new look. Momma doesn't do well with waiting for surprises. Cara knows this which, I am sure, is adding to her love of this adventure. I will be counting down the days until the big reveal and working on her every day until then by phone.
