Danny and Dalena, Grandchildren, and Amazing Food

The drive from Grand Island to Edmund, OK was only about 7 hours.  We arrived just after 4:00.  It was so great to see our family again!  The younger kids are going to change so much while we're gone! I try not to let myself think about that too much.  

Magda has to be one of the busiest little girls ever!  She played with blocks, colored, fed her dolls and all her animals dinner, and went shopping.  Dalena saved two shopping bags with handles on them for Magda's shopping.  She shops from the pantry.  :o). She also helps Dalena cook.  Saturday night's dinner included fresh tortillas.  Magda had her own tortilla press and made several tortillas that really looked pretty good!  (Magda is only 2 1/2 years old!)  

Bronson is a chunk!  He's pulling himself up to things and walking around.  He's a pretty happy little guy, and oh, so handsome!

There was also a pot of beans simmering on the stove.  It's the cutest little pot ever!  It's made of clay, but it's very light.  I wish I had taken a picture of it.  For dinner we had quesadillas, carne con su propio jugo, beans, fresh pineapple slices and Braum's ice cream for dessert.  Sunday, Dalena made, from scratch, shepherd's pie and potato rolls.  For dessert, she made grilled home-made pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream.  She is amazing!

It's always hard telling family goodbye...especially the little ones, because you know they're going to change so much...and you just hope they even remember who you are.
