Date with kiddos

Last month the girls mentioned to me that they wanted to have a special day with their Nana to Wichita. 
Yesterday we made it happen!

First a stop for my husband to pick up some grout color at Star Lumber.  
But after that, it was all about having fun with them!

I let them each pick out one outfit.  Sophia wanted a Dollie and Me outfit.

Hannah's favorite store is Justice and she looked and looked.

 She is a terrible "decider" just like her mommy, and like me too!  But eventually she picked out the shirt she is wearing below.  (sorry - fuzzy pictures.  My phone camera is not the best and my other camera still in the shop)

We HAVE  to stop at Target!  In fact, the girls made a list of every place they wanted to stop.

Sophia got to choose the place we would eat lunch and she chose the Pizza Hut inside Target.  She loves that place!

As we were leaving Target (wearing new sweaters we bought since they were cold - and this is July in Kansas??) we ran into Mommy!!  What a fun surprise!  She and Adam had also come to Wichita.  (Claire was at our home with a babysitter.)  Jill was shopping and Adam was at his "study" (Starbucks) preparing his sermon.  The girls wanted to go see their Daddy so we surprised him and interrupted his study time for a little while.

Next on the list - going to the movies!

What a fun movie!

Mindy lives close by so we had to stop to see her and her kitty!!
The girls got Xander a cat toy that makes a chirpy sound.  He will love it!

It was supper time and Hannah got to choose where.
She wanted to go to On the Border.

It was beginning to rain by the time we left.  Jill called to tell us that  it had taken them 1 hour, instead of 30 minutes for them to get home due to the storm.  Water was running across the highway and they had to pull off the road several times.  There was a possibility that we would not be able to get the girls home due to flooding.

As we were driving to Newton, there was a downpour!  Had to slow way down!  After waiting half an hour, we decided we would try to get the girls home.  We would take another route using the pickup, but the highway patrol had closed off the road due to flooding.  We ended up going to McPherson and over, but so glad we were able to get the girls home!!

I love dates with my grand kids!
