Monday PhotoPrompt: Trifecta

(Thanks to Arleen at Starting Over, Accepting Changes- Maybe for sharing this lovely photo of her daughter)

"I'm up here! I thought you were right behind me. What's taking so long?"

                                       (Thanks to Susan at thecontemplativecat)                                                       

 "Sorry darling, I seem to have lost my contact. Ah here it is! I'll be joining you shortly!"

 Henry arrives out of breath, as Ilana shoots him an evil look. "Didn't you bring the water bottles? I put you in charge of one thing...."

"Please forgive me my pet. I will climb back down the mountain and bring it to you."

Ilana shouts after him, "And don't forget my hiking boots. I don't know how I made it up here without them. Oh, I could also use a snack. Something sweet, no salty. Better yet, make it a combination."

Henry pants, "Anything for my beautiful bride."

Then Ilana suddenly remembers, "The twins! Where are the twins?"

                          (Thanks to Delores at thefeatherednest)

Henry turns to find another woman halfway down the mountain. "Mother, what are you doing here?"

"Of course I couldn't trust my scatterbrained son and his nitwit wife to take care of my granddaughters. They're playing with their dollies at the base of the mountain. I've had it up to here with you! Once and for all, you're going to have to find a job, and stop mooching off of me! It's time you got your own trailer home, so that my boyfriend and I can finally have a little privacy!"  With that, she grabbed her cane, and stormed off of the mountain.
It's never too late to join in Monday PhotoPrompts. Thanks again to Arleen, Susan, and Delores.
