Twins in Tennessee

They came; they conquered. They liked my books; they liked my CDs. Better than theirs. They like the two-inch step down at the end of my driveway, where it drops to street. They dragged out all my pots and pans. They climbed inside kitchen cabinets. They played with the Guardian Service cookware that has now been in the hands of 5 generations, from Annabelle Boone Mahaffey down to my mother, Lucille Mahaffey Hardy, to me — I cooked pot roasts for my children in the big roaster — all the way down to little Hardy and Jillie. They went to Tinkerbell Playground and to the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. They went on a bike ride and a walk around the neighborhood. Hardy even escaped out the doggy door! The sweetest thing is when Hardy reached over and held Jillie’s hand while riding in the stroller. They made the dog’s dream come true by sharing their food with her and dropping food all over the floor for her to pick up.
