Ronald's Got Nothing on Us!!
Did you know that Willard Scott was the original Ronald McDonald? Nor did I, but isn't that a fascinating bit of trivia with which to begin this post?
Yesterday hubby and I ventured into Ronald's domain with our three little grans in tow. The kids were on their best behavior - - -
Including our little Piper Cub who slept through nearly the entire visit. Keri says she and Jason haven't even ventured out to eat with all three kiddos yet - - - so we have the record where that is concerned!!!
Greg headed to the car with the kiddos first while I was left behind to clear the table. (Typical - - - that's all I'll say about that.) A gentleman diner remarked to me as I made trips back and forth from table to trash:
"You have them kids well trained."
"Thank you," I replied, "But I cannot take the credit, they are my grandchildren."
He said, "Well that little girl took the boy's hand and said, 'come on!' and he went right with her."
I didn't stay long enough to expound to him about how perfect they are - - - I was just proud he could see it for himself!!!!
Later when Jason and Keri returned, there were two little toys we could NOT find as we cleaned up. Thomas Engine and Donald's foot.
The lost have been found!!!
Thomas was in Kaeleigh's tea dishes.
Donald's (as in Duck of course - - - from a wooden puzzle of his likeness) foot was found in an unlikely crease of our big chaise chair.
And the miniature golf club (which we didn't even realize was missing) was found between couch cushions.
All have been restored to their rightful place, including the grans. It's pretty quiet around here.
This is all that is left to remind me of the gran's visit. I think I'll let them sit out on my counter for a while. :-)
