Chicago for a Day? No – for a date with the Great Grandparents!
Dear Mom and Dad,
Yes it is true the windy city is close to Camp Nana and the Mitten State and Great Grandma who has been too far south to see was in the windy city for a day. Do you know what that means to Nana? FIELD TRIP!
Yep. Me and my fellow campers went to ‘CHItown’ and while it was a fast trip and they all made the most of seeing a bit of the city I hung with my Poppy and Nana! I am saying ‘hi’ now which came in handy! Hi to everyone everywhere I go. Not just a princess wave now, nope, but a vocal and very audible “hi” that is almost as cute as I am! Momma knows because she heard me say it when she called today! HI!
A very big storm hit the states to the east and I hope my great grandmonster and her family are all good, I just want them to know they are being thought of! Yikes another on it’s way too!
So since Aunt Mikayla could not watch the Superbowl and. Her favorite player ever is PAYTON MANNING, so we captured a photo with him in the background… here I am with the campers posing with Aunt Mikayla’s Payton Manning, kind of…. you may have to look hard. He is right behind Aunt Alyxandra…. Oh Nana, you make us do the silliest stuff! Oh…. who cares… we are having fun!
I know that it seems crazy seeing my GG-ma and Great Papa in Chicago – but we all really miss getting together on Fun Fridays. All the big campers and me just hanging out and laughing – so you know Nana. he’s a silly one and she will do just about anything to send an important message. Did you catch it GG-ma and Great Papa?
See by the time they are back in the Mitten State – well I will be fixin to be a Texan it seems. So everyone I’m the north is aimin to make the most of my days left at camp! I hope to see some family here and there before I pack my camp bags!
I was an awesome camper but have to say I had a special thing happen. You know my goldfish mini classes? Well my my have they paid off. I had a chance to go swimming with my aunties today and it was awesome!
I hope everone at camp had as much fun as me and that my Aunts Alyxandra and Aunt Allyssa had great birthday’s. I Sind not mind a bit sharing cake and Birthday singing with them! I was happy to do it. Really! :-). Hey, isn’t it GUILLIANNA?
Well, even if it doesn’t say G U I L L I A N N A, I know these guys, and they will share it!
Happy Birthday Aunt Alyx and Aunt Allyssa I loved our FIELD TRIP!
We did great stuff… here we are swimming! I taught the campers how it is done. And yes even after Silly Nana was a NAG and reminded all the campers to bring BATHING SUITS, GUESS WHO’S SHE FORGOT…. MINE! But nothing stops the Guge, I had a special ONSIE BATHING SUIT I WORE!
Me entering the room, like the princess I am…
So we all got ready to find GG-ma and surprise her! I am not sure, but I think she was very surprised! You know, anytime you can see THE GUGE, IT IS A GOOD TIME! And Great Grandma isn’t going to get a whole bunch of “GUGE” time since I am preparing to go back to TEXAS! So… here you go GG-Ma,
and we did it…. we found her!
And it was great… we got to have some dinner together, and she got to see the campers!
SUCCESS! In a place so big and so full of so many people… I the princess in pink found Great Grandma!
How cool is this?
So Mom and Dad, you can see I am making all kinds of happiness everywhere I go… with a little help from my camper assistants! I had hoped to see my Great Grandma Sally and Grumpy once more but Washington is not touching Michigan as of yet, so most likely I will not… but I hope they know how lucky I am to have been to Washington to see them before I go back to base! Who knows maybe Daddy and you will get transferred to Washington State? Great Grandma has sent me so many wonderful things… and she makes me laugh! Hope you are feeling better Nana sends hugs and kisses to you too! But the ones I send… are extra sweet and extra special…because honestly.. I am extra sweet and extra special. Nana and Poppy may have a few more local excursions for me to visit family before I go from camp… but none that are more than a day… Poppy has work, and lots of it. The campers have school AND LOTS OF IT. So… we will wait and see… and I know one for sure is Cuz Nanc, and Great Aunt Ida… you are ON MY LIST, or Nana’s Visit List… so look out… THE SPIRIT STICK MAY BE PAYING YOU A VISIT…. Flint… yea… fieldtrip….to flint is next… YIPPEE! Granted it’s just a car ride a bit to the north, but at the end… hugs and kisses from family who have made my year extra special…. I will see you soon guys! I will bring books to read to you, and toys for you to play with!
Before I go today… I just want to say….
I love you mom and dad hope you know how much happiness I bring to everyone and that I think GG-ma will remember her little spirit sticks bringing her a smile in the windy city – from Uncle Nick, Miss K, Aunt Kiki, Aunt Alyx, Aunt Allyssa, Aunt Arri and the Popster- for quite some time! ALSO, I MUST SAY, TO GREAT AUNT PAM, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STAYING THE NIGHT, AND TAKING CARE OF MR. GRIFF, LADY LIBERTY AND JUSTICE, AS WELL AS KOZY CAT, MR. B, LAYLA AND MS. GRIZ. Once again, with out your help none of this would be possible. So GG-ma and Great Papa say thanks so much for making a memory that will last a lifetime. Please tell Great Uncle Rick, who we just learned is back in the hospital to GET WELL SOON.
Until tomorrow I am as always your Little Miss Adorable, Your little Spirit Stick, your daughter,
