I flew in to Dallas Wednesday, and was
picked up, along with Karen, at the airport. I met two of Lynn's
children in her vehicle, but her children didn't stay with us at the
were there. Her little boy stayed with his grandparents, and her two
daughters stayed at a hotel with friends who had come to Dallas for
We stopped for lunch on the way home, but I can't remember
where. I can't even remember what kind of food it was. Then we relaxed
at Lynn's house and let our babies (my Baby M, and Karen's Baby C) get
used to each
other while Karen and I checked out
Lynn's massive book collection. We made a trip to Central Market for a
few groceries for the stay. Yes, Advisory members even buy their
groceries at a CM store! LOL! The babies played on the floor around the
kitchen table and refrigerator, where lots of magnetic letters were low
enough for them to reach. Lynn also has two friendly cats that amused
the babies (for the entire trip, Miss M called one of the cats,
"meow-meow," and the other one, "meow-meow-meow"!). We had fruit,
yogurt and sushi from the
market for dinner.
Where we stayed: Lynn's home

door--note the huge wall of bookshelves! And there's another one just
like it on the opposite wall!
