Yesterday Armon, one of my grandsons, and I drove to Holland, Michigan to watch one of my granddaughters, Sydney, perform in the Tulip Festival Parade! I never drive and talk on my cell phone so Armon was my phone man! He did a good job answering and talking and relaying messages to me. I could tell he felt important! It’s a three hour drive, normally! We left here at 7:30 AM and arrived a little after one PM! We were caught in a terrific traffic tie-up, caused by construction, before we even got to the Holland exit! Oh how frustrating!
We just missed Sydney’s dance performance by minutes! It was scheduled for 1:00. We should have had plenty of time to get there! I was so disappointed and so was Sydney!
We watched the entire parade. It was very long and very good! After the parade we found Sydney somehow! There were thousands of people everywhere! Bella is still favoring her foot that she had surgery on. It has to heal completely before she can walk normally on it. So she used her knee scooter! Armon and Bella.
Armon and I had a decision to make! Sydney was going to be dancing again at 7:00 PM. Should we stay to watch her perform or should we go home so we’d get there before dark? Well, we all went out for supper. Ted’s Mother’s Day gift to me!
Armon and I got home about 11:30 PM but it was worth it!!! We had a great day together with his Holland cousins! Thank you, Ted, for a wonderful day!
