The Story of the Allred's and the Three Seasons

Once upon a time, there was a little family of Allred's.  They went for a vacation in the States.  They first arrived upon a house in Colorado. They were not used to the weather.  "This weather is too cold," they said.

Next, they flew to Texas for a visit with family and friends.  Although they were Texan's for the past eleven years, they were still annoyed with the weather that awaited them.  "This weather is too hot!" they exclaimed.

Then, at the end of their trip, when the family of Allred's arrived "home" to St. Kitts, they felt the warm breeze blowing in off the ocean, and they were pleasantly surprised.  "Ahhh, this weather is just right," they said happily, and right away they headed out to the pool for a swim.

Just then, the Allred's declared, "This is a great home for a time."  They screamed, "Hooray to be home and through flying!"  And the Allred youngsters jumped up and ran for joy. But, unlike The Story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the Allred's are sure to visit both Texas and Colorado and the people they love there, again.

Love your story! Looks like you had a fun time visiting. Cute to see all of the happy McD's faces! I guess we take it for granted that we have one down the street...although I think it has been about 6 months since we have gone... :) When I posted the ironing picture, I actually thought of you noticing it and teasing me!! You know, I RARELY use it, I am more about buying wrinkle-free things, and if by chance something sits too long in the dryer, I would rather wash it again than iron. So it is still in great shape. :)

That was a great story Beth! How funny! We're glad you'll still come back to visit, though the weather isn't just right. :) Wish we could come that way to see it for ourselves!
