Goodbye and Arrival - After the Picnic

Elephant Trio sees the Gang off on their journey

After the day of the Picnic, it was really time for them to go.  last minute preparations  were made, which turned into a Going Away Party.
Elephant Trio raises their Red Orb in celebration of the Big Journey the Gang will be taking as they pose for one last group photo here at my place.

It was quite the party with everyone talking at once in excited voices and partaking in all of the delicious food that Mexican Lady served (she likes to do that, you know) and bustling about packing things up.

Elephant Trio had planned to join them, but at the last moment an Important Telegram came for them.  It read:
Don't go.  Needed elsewhere.  More soon.

Now, I wonder what that is all about?!

I guess we will just have to wait for further instructions.
Raising their Red Orb!

Mouse suggests a game of Hide-and-go-Seek as well as bit of a treat to eat!

Big Baby cuddles with Littlest Boy Baby in her traveling suitcase.  
She's been ready for 50 years!

Fly well my friends, you'll always be remembered with love.

*After-note: As Saskia noted on the previous post, they have arrived safely.  She plans to update their arrival when computer issues allow.  Until then, please know that all is well and they are all settling in and making many new acquaintances.  Their story shall continue.  I for one, can't wait!

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.

A fan sure does come in handy on a warm day!

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
