I arrived at Hazel and Ivan's apartment mid-afternoon Sunday. I do not like to drive in heavy traffic, so the Kansas Turnpike was not an option. (No matter how much quicker and easier it would be, according to Cath.) I researched and found that Hwy 92 was the perfect way for me to go. I took my time because it was the first time I had ever been on this road. Who said Kansas is flat? Hwy 92 is not flat. It is hilly and curvy, but nice scenery. I only made one booboo. That was in Leavenworth. I took a left when I should have taken a right. I only drove about a mile in the wrong direction till I figured out I wasn't getting any closer to the Missouri River. (grin) Once I got turned around and headed the right way, it was smooth sailing. I was happy to cross that Missouri River bridge cause that meant I was back in my home state. I love Missouri. I was born and have lived here my whole life. Anyway, by the time I arrived, Haze and Cath were on the phone with each other trying to figure out where in the world mom was. LOL I told them I could make it on my own.
Noah and Izzie were kind of shy when I first arrived. I am sure they thought my arrival meant their parents were leaving again. As soon as I got that straightened out with them, they started to warm up to me. Of course, the Hershey bar I brought each of them helped with that. (grin) I am not above bribery to get some loving from the grandbabies. Noah had to demonstrate his new Sponge Bob chair.
