Traveling Friends

Well, a couple of days ago this group of friends finally hit the road!  Their journey has been in the making for a very long time (as you all know) and they were all thrilled to be on their way.  One sunny day before boarding their travel box, Mexican Lady, Mouse and Cloth Chick decided to have a picnic together.  They shared in plenty of food and relaxed for a long time. It was nice to spend these last moments together before their big adventure with the others.

Picnic Time
After that huge strawberry, Mouse enjoys a small drink

A fan sure does come in handy on a warm day!
Mouse takes Mexican Lady for a ride!

Cloth Chick loves watermelon!
Finally, a nap.  But, wait...who is that up in the corner?
Some cool tea before hitting the trail
A good time was had by all at the picnic.  I have to say, it was a delightful, if a bit bittersweet goodbye to all the gang as they headed out to Saskia's place.  I hope their journey is free of bumps and mishaps!
Sent with love, Nancy

What wonderful traveling companions ... I especially like mouse's upturned nose and cloth chick's Kantha nest. OBK and company are sure to be equally delighted.

How very fun & sweet! I was JUST telling someone about the "Very Big Strawberry" book!

Nancy said...

Michelle~ Glad you enjoyed :)

Liz~ Ohhh. a Kantha nest! I like the sound of that! I think OBK and the gang will not know what hit them!

Dee~ Yes, a long time in the planning, but finally on their way.

Peggy~ Thank you so much, that means a lot to me.

Cindy~ Thanks. DO you mean the Audry and Don Wood book? I think I am the only teacher that does not like that one...but I love their other books.

as you know Nancy, they have arrived safe and sound and are slowly settling in. Due to laptop problems (a new one had to be purchased) there was no way to let everyone else know via the blog, this will be remedied asap!

Saskia~ Yes...and I am so thrilled that they have gone to live in such a Love Filled Home!
