Papa’s and Daddy’s braiding skills leave a lot to be desired, and neither has ever attempted anything as ambitious as a French or “fish tail” braid (didn’t even know the second existed). So, it isn’t surprising that among Cory’s “best things” from our trip to Bend is a French braid. She also loved the Loredo family dog, trying to carry her around everywhere, which Ebony suffered through with flying pet colors.
On the plane trip home, Cory tears up and whimpers to Daddy: “I am not going to see Amber and Emily for a long day, and that is sad because Emily is going to miss me, Daddy. Who is going to carry her, Daddy? She is going to miss me to carry her.”
