The Park Fun Continues (Photostory)
And the story continues.....
Melanie drives off, leaving Nicole at the park with Rod.
"Dad, you're squeezing me!" (Nicole)
"I'm just happy to see you." (Rod)
"I'm happy to see you, too." (Nicole)
Sharmaine and Kobe stop to say hello to Ian and Valencia.
"Hey cuz. What's up?" (Sharmaine)
"Not much. I didn't know you were coming." (Ian)
"I wasn't sure I was going to be back in time, but I made it." (Sharmaine)
"This is my girl, Valencia." (Ian)
"Hey. Nice to meet you." (Valencia)
"Nice to meet you. This is my friend, Kobe." (Sharmaine)
"Kobe and I have already met." (Valencia)
"Oh you guys know each other?" (Sharmaine)
"Hey Val. Yes, Val and I are acquainted with each other." (Kobe)
"Do you see who's sitting over there?" (Rod)
"Is that Grandma Roberta?" (Nicole)
"Sure is. Why don't you run over and say hello? I'm going over to check on the food." (Rod)
"We're looking good." (JT)
"It smells wonderful." (Danielle)
Valencia is a little ticked at the way Kobe is smirking in her direction. She's just thankful they never slept together. This moment would be even more awkward, if that had happened.
Sharmaine doesn't know what to think. What exactly does "acquainted with each other" means? Definitely a conversation for later.
"Oh Nicole. It's so nice to see you!" (Roberta)
"Come on. Let me introduce you to my aunt." (Sharmaine)
Rod sneaks up behind Danielle.
"How's it going over here. How's the food coming?" (Rod)
"The food is just about done. We can eat whenever you guys are ready." (JT)
"Sorry to just leave you to tend to the food." (Rod)
"No worries. Makes me feel right at home." (JT)
"Melanie seemed to have a lot to say. Anything of interest?" (Danielle)
"No, she was just trying to give me fashion tips. I was surprised she let Nicole stay." (Rod)
"It's been a long time since I've seen you. I hear that you are quite the busy little lady, these days." (Roberta)
"Yes, there's girl scout's, dance class, and piano lessons." (Nicole)
"Wow. How do you have time for your schoolwork?" (Roberta)
"I have time." (Nicole)
"Are you ready to play now?" (Julian)
"Julian, can't you see we're talking? Besides, she probably shouldn't get her girl scout uniform all dirty." (Roberta)
"Well, can you go with me to get something to drink?" (Julian)
"Hand her to me. We're getting ready to go home." (Sylvia)
"Can I stay with Nicole?" (Jessica)
"Stay with Nicole? No. We're going home to have a nice dinner." (Sylvia)
"But you can have a nice dinner without me." (Jessica)
"Your dad is expecting to see all of us at the dinner table." (Sylvia)
Then Sylvia gives Jessica a look. Jessica gets the message and decides to drop it.
Valencia places her head on Ian's shoulder. She takes a little peek over at Kobe. It's a little strange seeing him with another woman.
After hugs and introductions, Sharmaine sits to chat with her aunt Roberta.
"So auntie, I hear you have an admirer. Do tell!" (Sharmaine)
"He's not an admirer. He's my friend. His name is JT. I'll introduce you when he gets off the grill." (Roberta)
"So Kobe, what do you do?" (Roberta)
"Ma'am, I'm a sportscaster." (Kobe)
"You and JT will get along great. He loves his football and his basketball. I'm more of a tennis person myself." (Roberta)
"Well I'm friends with Serena and Venus. Maybe I could introduce you." (Kobe)
"You know the sisters! I would love to meet them." (Roberta)
"We will definitely make that happen." (Kobe)
"There's nothing but beer and soda in here." (Nicole)
"I'll take soda." (Julian)
"You can't have soda. I think the juice is on the table." (Nicole)
"Look, there's watermelon." (Julian)
"I don't think we should mess with that." (Nicole)
"What are you two up to? Nicole, did you speak to me today? Get over here and give me my hug." (Danielle)
"You look so cute in your girl scout outfit." (Danielle)
"Alright peeps. Time to grub." (Rod)
"You don't have to tell me twice. I'm starving." (Sharmaine)
