Gal's Day Out Continued in photos...and words...

Now you know HOW SPECIAL my day was Yesterday. When my grand daughter arrived and greeted me by giving me this picture she had made for me at her school.
(In case you can't tell, that is me in the center and my house on the right side)
On Saturday I had a wonderful day meeting up with my cousin who came from Colorado for a visit. The photos tell the story backyards... These nature shots were taken on an hour long walk she and I took after our lunch...where we talked catching up on family, her parents/my aunt and uncle, kids, grand kids, my kids and grand kids, our lives...
I seem to find art where ever I go and this walk was no exception. Lots of ducks and egrets greeted us along our way...
The most heartfelt part of our talk was about her parents health,
and wondering how much longer we will have them in our lives.
And how much we love and appreciate them now.
Earlier we met up with my grand daughter and daughter who
came to join us for lunch.
Here we are in a toy store across the street from the restaurant
and GD is trying out a new fangeled toy you can spin in...or wear on your back
if you want to be a turtle...
Lunch was good, and just being together very very special.
We'll be together next in June when Barb comes again and
throws a big party with five generations of our
entire family of many cousins
to celebrate her Mom and Dad's 90th year!
Huggin' cousins!
