Before leaving for Palo Alto, Grandma Carolyn and Grandpa Mark checked out the backyard
5-year-old Rylin and 3-year old Carys and their mom and dad are moving to Australia and leaving next Monday. They so enjoy spending time with their grandparents and will miss them very much. Now Grandma Carolyn and Grandpa Mark, in doll form, will go with them.
Carolyn is going to miss her granddaughters so very much. Here she's creating an imaginary conversation between the dolls. She suggested that the girls ask, "Grandpa Mark, can we go to Rick's Ice Cream?" Grandpa nodded "yes" because his head will only go up and down.
