In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics.

E’s back in Vegas! I picked them up at the airport and almost didn’t recognize that taller kid. She likes to come down in August because it is a change from Portland, and the water in our pool is warm so that she can swim as much as she wants. However it seems she is now Portland adapted, and can’t play outside without getting all red and hot. Come on, it was only 39 (103f) yesterday when she went across the street to play with the trips plus one. B says that she didn’t even last an hour over there before melting and coming back. But they were in the pool this morning at 7 enjoying it – water temp is around 31 (93f) so you can float for a while without getting chilled.

When we got home from the airport the first thing she did was take off her shoes and run out to the swing (well, after stopping to hug Grammie)

Then we went to her favorite Mexican restaurant, Viva Mercados, a few blocks from our house. She likes Mexican food but mom can’t find a good place in Portland. She walked in with Grammie

And only wanted to eat the colored chips. VM mixes in some green and red and black with the plain ones

Yea, Granddad (oh, no, I’m not that old, am I?) got her some Barbies which she quickly found in her room. I guess mom doesn’t get her those, just a million stuffed animals. I did notice that this one ended up going commando in the Brazilian style, but didn’t point that out to her. (what?)

Second thing was coloring the placemat; she now keeps colors in the lines. And playing tic-tac-toe with Grammie. She wins sometimes but Grammie doesn’t throw any games like she used to. Then on to Granddad’s iPhone and all the fun new game apps. The cheese quesadilla and beans were filling.

She's sure growing fast. Still cute as a button of course!

Nice of you to check out Barbie's underthings (or lack) though. LOL Just what we all wanted to know.

I laughed at the comment about Barbie's underclothes. Just another celebrity to set a bad example. :D

She is growing so very fast. And I'd eat only the coloured chips as well. I'm sure I would....

Wow, who is that young lady? She has grown so much! It's lovely to share your pics, Joe. She's just beautiful

Poor Barbie though... maybe her parents don't buy her enough clothing?? :-)

I am glad to hear she and you are enjoying the trip!
