Taco Bell, Yum!

I received a phone call from my granddaughter, Katiana Lynn, today. "Grandma, do you want to have lunch with us today at Taco Bell?" That took me by surprise, to say the least. I told her I would love to and made plans to head to Des Moines as soon as Steve had my car washed.

Since the water in the well is finally lower than the pump, Steve decided to wash both of our vehicles and the propane tank (which all have been needing cleaned for quite some time). I left him hard at work and headed in to have lunch with three of my favorite people.

I used to take the kids to Taco Bell on Saturdays (when money allowed it) after the girls and I had our allergy shots. Trying to take the sting out of being poked (a play on words LOL) and spend fun family time with the kids, we'd all go munch tacos and drink pop.

Taylor was having a skating party today in celebration of her tenth birthday and Jordan was invited. Since Heather has two little ones who don't know how to skate yet and wasn't sure she wanted to be on skates, she thought it would be fun to spend time with her girls at Taco Bell.

Although I was surprised to hear Kat's invitation, I was happy to comply and continue the tradition of having fun at Taco Bell. While I was driving in, I received a phone call from Josh, "Yes, I'd like two Burrito Supremes, an order of Nachos and a large Mt. Dew" was his query. How funny is that? He told me he'd rather go with us than to the skating rink. LOL Can't blame him there.

When I arrived, Kat was standing at the door with a beautiful smile on her face. Not far away sat Alyce with a big smile too, waving at me. I love it that my grandkids love me! After eating my Taco Supremes, I told Heather about the call Josh made. She got this onery look on her face, picked up her cell, called her brother and said, "Dude, we ordered your burritos but I got so hungry, I ate them!" What a card! Too many more trips like today and I'm going to have to start looking at ellipticals to lose more weight. I wonder if they have any that are recumbant bike style? Have a wonderful afternoon and make many happy memories with your families! Halfmoon
