The train was 3 hours late, but we knew that ahead of time, so the wait wasn't too bad. We chose to sit outside on a bench and kept watching for the train to come. The Amtrak Police man gave the kids bad stickers. (D and J)
This is J showing her hat with the sticker on it. This is a crocheted hat from Thailand. It is from one of the craft ministries where young girls and women can earn money by means other than prostitution. I've had it a long time and it shrunk. The kids love it, especially J.
Here's A showing you hers, but she is checking it out to see what it looks like. She frequently does this and it cracks me up! She thinks that as long as her body is physically facing toward the camera it is okay. Countless pictures have her eyeballs looking in all directions! LOL
We sat there happily watching for the train to come and Grandpa to get off. The train came, but we waited for passengers. All the sudden, A says, "There's Grandpa!" I started to say "No, he hasn't gotten off the train yet" and then turned to see him standing behind us, having come off from the other direction! LOL This is D hugging him.
This is D, talking to Grandma on the phone - Yes! He arrived safely Grandma!
Grandpa told the kids that he had Grandma in the suitcase! :o) He wanted to get her out so that she wouldn't suffocate and so they watched, knowing he wasn't telling the truth, but curious to see what he meant! He pulled out a picture of her. Oh Grandpa! So, now I am posting this, so that Grandma in the suitcase won't be kept in the dark! Four more tomorrows Grandma and we'll be hugging and kissing on you! We can't wait! I love you Mom!
