Arriving At Grandma's House (Photostory)
Roberta left for the airport 30 minutes ago. All is quiet at home.
Here's a look at her patio.
Soon they arrive with their bags in tow. As Roberta opens the door, Danielle questions her mom about her bicycle.
"Mom, do you still ride your bike?" (Danielle)
"Yes, every chance I get. We have a nice trail nearby." (Roberta)
"You guys come on in and make yourself at home." (Roberta)
"I'll take care of the bags. You guys go on in." (Rod)
"Are you guys hungry? I could fry some chicken." (Roberta)
"We had a nice lunch on the plane, so we are okay for now." (Danielle)
"Well, I fixed up my room for you and Rod. The kids can sleep in the back room." (Roberta)
"Where are you going to sleep?" (Danielle)
"Oh don't worry about me. I spend many nights on that sofa with the TV watching me." (Roberta)
"Well if you show me the way, I will get these bags out the way." (Rod)
Danielle gets the kids situated watching the Disney channel and she and Rod head upstairs.
"Let me carry something." (Roberta)
"We got it, Mom. Just lead the way." (Danielle)
Roberta has a quaint little bedroom.
"Mom are you sure you don't want to sleep in your own bed?" (Danielle)
"Child I told you, it's no bother. I'm just as comfortable on the sofa as I am in my bed. Now I'm going downstairs to get dinner started. You two take your time. The kids will be fine." (Roberta)
"That was nice of your mom." (Rod)
"She is so happy we are here." (Danielle)
"So what do you want to do?" (Rod)
"I think I want to rest for a few minutes. Will you lay down with me?" (Danielle)
"Of course." (Rod)
Meanwhile, Roberta starts cleaning the fryers to make the fried chicken. She'll probably make some fresh rolls, too.
One fryer is clean.
The flour is ready.
And so is the oil.
The kids are still glued to the T.V. Other than a few laughs here and there, they have been pretty silent. I'm sure all of that will change when they hit the wonderful world of Disney.
