Lake Murray with Stella.....

After the performances at the fund raiser for tornado victims we headed over to Lake Murray. Lexi just knew Stella would enjoy feeding the Canadian geese and yes, she did! It was a beautiful day in the 80's though very windy!
Those of you that have hosted Stella know she is quite the funny gal. She wanted to jump out there on the back of that Canadian goose and ride it around like a boat! I had to hang on to her!!
Isn't that anchor huge??
Next we went over to a beach area and just walked all around. No one was there and it was very nice. A few boats even zoomed by.

She that tower over there? It is Tucker Tower and we are heading there next.
Here we are and oh no, it is closed....boo. That's okay cause we went the next day. Come back tomorrow for Tucker's Tower.
Also, when Stella leaves she will need to travel to a different state. If you are interested my e-mail is under my profile. Just let me know. I'll try to send her to a state she has not been to yet.

That was a very nice trip for Stella. Lake Murray is beautiful and Mike, AJ and I have been to the top of Tucker Tower. In fact, Mike and his partner are fishing there today. They have a tournament there on Saturday, I think. I'll call 11-12 if all goes as planned. Never can tell with mother these days.

Hello Darlene, I didn't know Stella ended up with you. I missed it. Your trip to Lake Murray with Stella and Lexi looks like a fine time. Water is always a calming atmosphere. It is beautiful there. I know Stella had a wonderful time as wells as you and Lexi. The tower is interesting too.

I want to thank you for your many kind comments about Beth. There is peace in knowing she isn't suffering anymore. My grandsons are staying with our daughter for now. They are surrounded with love there. Especially by their younger cousins, who think they 'hung the moon.' BIG smile.

Have a happy day.

Hugs...Jeanne

Stella is being treated like royalty. You're a good hostess.

Looks like Stella is having a great time in Oklahoma.

Stella is a little sneaky as well. Keep an eye out for your cookies. She has a bit of a sweet tooth. I should have warned you earlier!

Darlene
Stella and Lexi are getting along so well aren’t they? Lovely pictures and your weather is so nice…oh how I envy you for that. We just had a snow storm yesterday and today also…and our snow was all gone and it was feeling like spring. Yuck.

Good luck fabric shopping too. I had been looking for some time and this is really what I was looking for and one day it was waiting for me!

Thank you for sharing…have a lovely day.

It took me a minute, but I finally figured out who Stella was. It's been a while since I've seen her. My daughter use to have to do that with Flat Stanley. When I lived in SC, there was a Lake Murray. If I had known sooner, I would have told you to mail her to me b/c we're leaving for Savannah, Jacksonville & eventually Disney on Friday. Maybe next time!

Well I see that I've missed TONS being absent from Blogland a few days! Stella looks like she is having the time of her life! : )

My friend Lisa's daughter got Flat Stanley last year and he had lots of adventures around our place, too.

Neabear said...

I love the picture of Lexi and Stella posing by the lake. It is making me feel colder though. We are having cold days with rain now. Normally April has lots of warm days in California. Not right now. Happy Easter!

Controlling My Chaos said...

Darlene, You are such a good mom. I love that you are doing this with Lexi. She's going to remember it.

Lisa & Gerald said...

I've been following the adventures of Stella and she sure looks like she is having a great time with you! I bet your sweet daughter will really miss her.

Has Stella been to Ohio yet? I'd love to be considered for her next visit!
