Chad, Nicole and Addie were in Louisiana last week for Spring Break. I looked at their photos posted online and I had to laugh! I think Nicole was an easy child to raise . . Chad not so much.
The reason I said “I think” she was an easy child . . Addie’s school pictures and her cheerleader pictures last year . . she had a smirk, not a smile. I told her “Some day, your children are going to see those pictures and they’re going to think it’s ok to make that face instead of smiling and looking happy and just when you get aggravated with them, you’re going to remember you did the same thing!”
A month or so ago, Nicole sent me this picture that her dad had sent her.
Nicole on the left; Addie on the right. Yep, just what I said.
Here are a few pictures from their Louisiana trip.
They were on the trolley car and I’m sure they wanted it to be fun for Addie but she wasn’t happy because she had to get up so early so she’s pretending to be sleeping, standing on the trolley. That’s my uncle in front of her and Nicole in front of him. Chad was behind her . . probably had already given up on trying to get her to participate.
Look at that! Addie is just a couple of inches shorter than her mom. When did that happen??
That’s my uncle. He’ll be 91 in just a few weeks. He’s still traveling, still doing his own yard work. There he is in the WW II museum in New Orleans, keeping up with Chad, Nicole and Addie. I’m so proud of him and it makes me happy that my family has good genes and, for the most part, keep living a good life as long as they possibly can.
