We Spent the Most Wonderful Day with Middie!

This was such a great day! We got here late last night. Middie had the day off, so she, her son Billy, James, and I spent the day together. We talked a lot, spent a little time at a couple stores, had a great dinner at a neat little Italian restaurant, and we went out on a pier on Lake Erie. Middie is such a sweetie, just as I knew she would be, and we are in love with both her and Billy. Billy is a super smart, very well-mannered boy. We hated saying goodbye and definitely plan to get together again someday.

Barbara
P.S. I will post the pictures we took in a few posts so that no post is too big. They aren't in order, but they were all taken today.

It was a great day. You and James are the nicest people I have ever met. I just really wish we had more time. 1 day just isn't enough. Wow you took alot of pictures ! lol. Billy really did enjoy himself and he really likes you both. Once again I am so glad we got to have this opportunity and we will get together again !

Well, this meeting was especially special to us because this is the one we had been planning for a long time. We have been wanting to meet middie for two or three years now.

No, a day isn't enough! Too bad you are working tomorrow! We are staying an extra day, so that we can do laundry and some make some antique shop stops. As Billy said, it's a nice little town. Wow, I just can't get over what a good time we had today!

YOUR Lake Erie was very cool! In fact, it was a little cold! LOL Seriously, it was beautiful!

Not only is Billy adorable, but that is one smart young man! I think James has a buddy for life!
