Friday's Favorite Family Foto

I just can't go on, Mommy!
June 2005

One hot day in June, 2005, I went for lunch & shopping with daughter & her children. My granddaughter, Kathryn, was two and a half at the time.

You have to understand that her mommy and her grandma love to shop and I believe we overdid it a little that day. Kathryn had a quiet meltdown and refused to move from her cool spot on the floor of the mall! People just stopped and talked with her. One elderly man was so cute...he said he wished he could just lie down right there, also.

Kathryn is now five and a half and has become a seasoned shopping diva herself. She will go at the drop of a charge card!

I would never have this picture had I not had my camera in my purse! I can't wait until she sees this when she's older.

~~~~~~~Yesterday, I was telling Kathryn how much I missed her when I was away for over two weeks. I told her I set a picture of her on the bedroom dresser and it was the last thing I looked at before going to bed at night and the first thing I saw when I woke. She replied to me, "Grandma, you know that photographs are for memories".
Yes, my darling, they are!
She just melts my heart!

Thank you for visiting me and leaving a comment. I had fun putting my thoughts down about these wonderful women. What a cute story about Kathryn. I must admit that I would join her there on the floor too. I hate summer heat and not a fan of shopping unless it is for my home. I am the world's worst clothes shopper and it shows in how I dress unfortunately. :)

Hugs ~

This is adorable!!
What a fun memory! Grace did something akin to this in China. She was still not sure she *liked* us and ona shopping trip with teh other families, she sat down in the middle of a store and refused to budge. Bill was going to just sling her over her shoulder but a a young man stopped to talk to her. We weretold he was tellingher how lucky she was to go to America and have nice new parents...Grace remembers this well and says he also told her that if she did not get up we would leave her and she would starve! Oh my! That would never happen but I guess she did not know for sure so up she popped!

I would love to participate in your Friday fun! I have a photo of Bill I will post....

Deborah, I love this picture and story.

I have been known to stretch out on a cool tile floor myself - but I promise I didn't do it in public. Lord, that would have been a sight.

This is so cute! My Britnee was a Shopping Diva at a young age too and still is. Brett hates shopping. When he was younger, he would sometimes find an empty shelf to take a nap on or get up under the clothes rack for a quick catnap. One time in a Toys R Us he somehow got INTO a doll house that was on a bottom shelf. He peered out the front door of the little house. I have no idea how he got his body to do that?! Have a wonderful Fourth!

Lallee said...

Oh that picture made my day! I remember feeling that way about shopping when I was her age. I'm not sure it's a good thing that I got over it ;-)

Happy 4th!
