On the Road Again

 Molly Kate prepares to show Nana her new room.
Husband Walter and I will be heading out early tomorrow morning for Baton Rouge, LA, and grandson Walker’s two-year birthday party. I had forgotten that I had snapped these photos from our previous visit in April.
Molly Kate poses on her comfy new big-girl bed.

The images made me smile at the memories they evoked of granddaughter Molly Kate’s enthusiasm about showing me her new bedroom in the new family home.

Treasured "princess" furnishings

Little monkey feet

I fell in love with her monkey slippers. She was a remarkably patient little subject as grandmother and granddaughter worked together to find a way to show off the whimsical footwear.

I still have yet to recharge from my first solo travel and first travel by air since my 2011 stroke. I will post more about that stroke-recovery milestone later.  I returned home Tuesday, May 15 from the trip, but, even though I am still a little low on energy, I could not pass up the invitation to Walker’s celebration.

And where is Walker in all these photos? I think he was busy romping with his grandfather Baboo in the toy room. 

Have a great weekend!


  1. That bedroom is just darling. It certainly fits the precious little girl that sleeps there. She is just a doll. I love her little slippers too.

    So happy to hear you were able to travel.

  2. Can't wait to see the party photos. Molly Kate sill melts my heart. That is some room, I love it and the bed is awesome!

  5. What an adorable bedroom and such a cute charmer she is.
    Have a wonderful visit and a pleasant trip.

  6. That little girl is so cute! I miss my grandkids being that age. My youngest is 11! They grow up so fast! Thank goodness for cameras!

  7. She's a delightful little monkey herself. What a sweetie. Have a nice weekend.

  8. What a cute kid. Love her monkey slippers, and that is a great way to show them off.

  9. Thrilled to hear of your solo trip and the great strides you are making.
    I don't think I could stay away from the birthday celebration either.
    Kids can tire one out but oh can they charge the worn down batteries too.
    Enjoy your time and looking forward to hearing all about it.
    Incidentally, Molly Kate has a fantastic room. I love the color scheme.

  10. What a lovely bedroom! Fit for a princess :) I can hardly believe that Walker is already turning two! I hope you enjoy partaking in his birthday celebration :)
