After a long day’s travel, we arrived in Orlando safe and sound on Friday night. This delightful sight was awaiting us:
We were surprised at how quickly Isobel warmed up to us. I think she remembered us from our visit last Christmas. She is especially taken with her Grandpa, as this picture attests:
She calls him "ye-ye", which is Mandarin for grandpa. Yesterday was spent resting up and grocery shopping. Today, we made the trip to Ocala to meet up with our friend, who was so kind as to deliver this:
It was just serendipity that he was out visiting us in Washington several weeks ago and volunteered to carry the rocking horse back with him to Florida in his car. Also a big thanks to Kris and Dana, who also volunteered. As you can see, the horse is a big hit!
Now we are down to the waiting game and trying not to drive Abby crazy! We hope to keep busy with play dates and some last minute shopping, and of course, enjoying Isobel.

What a wonderful post, Dorothy. Have a terrific time with your family. How nice that you can be there.
How wonderful! Enjoy every minute with your lovely family. Mother and I are driving to Missouri on Wednesday to visit your mother and father before going back through Mtn. Grove and then to Springfield. Safe journey!
