Fun with the Meyersons!!!! Now with pictures

On Monday Grandpa, Jason and I had the amazing privilege of watching Ashlin and Tayley!!!!!! Chad, Meagan and the girls flew down from Salt Lake to Los Angeles to watch the Lakers eliminate the Jazz . When we got to the hotel Chad and Meagan were staying in, we walked in the room and Tayley was crawling all over the room. I went to pick her up and she smiled at me. She had no problem with me holding her. I took her over to Grandpa so he could see her, but she began to cry (poor Grandpa). Ashlin came running up to Grandpa Jason and I and gave us lots of hugs and kisses!!!!!

Everyone but Grandpa got ready to swim in the hotel pool before Chad and Meagan had to leave for the game. We spent about an hour swimming and having a goodtime. Tayley was just chilling in her float ring while Ashlin was a real fish swimming all around the pool. Ashlin and I had fun racing each other and playing tag. Tayley was mesmerized by me. She just stared at me and when I swam by her she smiled. I think she liked me.

After we got out, Grandpa and Chad went across the street to Taco Bell to get dinner. As we were eating and Chad and Meagan were getting ready for the game, Tayley was crawling all around the room again and had no desire to eat. I finally picked her up and fed her some rice. She enjoyed sitting on my lap and I got her to eat some dinner.

It was then time for Tayley to go to bed and Chad and Meagan to leave for the game. Grandpa and Jason watched TV while I played with Ashlin. I had a WONDERFUL time playing Princesses with Ashlin. I was Belle and she was Cinderella. We pretended that the evil queen was after us so we had to keep running from one side of the room to the other. When we were on one side of the room we would play with some magnetic cutouts and play sets of the Princesses at a ball. We had to dance with each other so we would be ready to dance with the princes. As we were dancing it reminded me of the chorus of a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called Cinderella. "I will dance with Cinderella while she is here in my arms. Cause I know something the prince never knew. I'll dance with Cinderella. I don't want to miss even one song. Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight and she'll be gone."

When we were on the other side we watched the planes fly into LAX. As we were watching the planes, Ashlin and I had to call Wonder Pets to see if they could help us get away from the evil queen. The Wonder Pets would say they were too busy so we had to get help form the planes.

Ashlin had such a large imagination!!!! I was privileged to take part in it!!!!! I had so much fun playing with Ashlin and Tayley and enjoyed every moment I spent with them. I was so sad when I had to put Ashlin to bed. I can't wait to see them again.
