The Transporter

I was feeling better on Sunday the 7th but then again, it'd be hard to feel worse. I still had a fever but for the most part, I was feeling normal. Grandma & Grandpa Davenport came over to watch the Chiefs game but I think they really just wanted to see me. That does sound like them right? They felt bad about me feeling bad and came bearing gifts. They got me two sets of four glove puppets; one farm and one jungle. The lion above is, of course, from the jungle series. I feel like a lion at a farm wouldn't be very sporting...
From left to right we have Monkey, Lion, Giraffe, Hippo, Lamb, Pig, Horse & Cow. I've enjoyed playing with these fellas and I know Dad thinks I don't share but I totally do because Penny feels like she just got eight new toys too!
The Chiefs game wasn't cutting it for me so GmaD read Doggies to Cow, Lion and Me. As you can see, I helped GmaD find page 9 - AAA-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

G&G D came bearing snacks as well but since the snacks were on the coffee table and M&D were on the other side of the room, I volunteered to be a snack runner... but mostly because it involved dipping a pretzel chip in some french onion dip.
Though apparently not all transitions went smoothly. It definitely looks like this was a casualty. FUMBLE!

GpaD decided no trip would be complete without making a donation to my First Table & Chairs college fund.
Shortly after G&G D left, we packed up and headed over to Grandma & Grandpa Herbert's to celebrate GpaH's and Mom's Birthdays.

I did some playing with my vintage toys both before and after dinner and while I was playing with the type writer, something caught my eye. Tomy's Tutor Typer? Who spells Tommy with one M? So as you can see, I've gone ahead and edited the picture. (click to enlarge)
After dinner, I helped GmaH and Aunt Abby put candles in the cake but I was a little confused. We were celebrating two birthdays and by my estimation we were like 80 candles shy.
GpaH did the honors of blowing out the candles and did a fine job. TIME FOR CAKE!

Guess which one of these gifts I thought was awesome and guess which one I thought was lame? GpaH said he liked it but he was probably just being nice to AA.
I had a lot of fun over at G&G H's but that's pretty easy when I get to play with my vintage toys, hang with AA and EAT SUGAR RIGHT BEFORE BED!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
