Day of Bliss!

My daughter, Son-in-law and the two grand kids came for a visit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We enjoyed the sun in our backyard for a while. They come from the Bay Area where they have been socked in by fog all week and were longing for SUN!!! Glad we could supply it. This is my soon-to-be six year old grand daughter, Pippi Longstockings! Playing with Grandma's bag of junk jewelry!!! She loved sorting it all out and wearing it too. The copper bracelet on her right wrist was my mom's her great grandmother's! ;-) Grandpa looking a tad serious, but that's just one of his looks. Doesn't mean much. He was happy as a clam as was I.
My daughter and son-in-law enjoyed the hammock!
Grand daughter asked if she could sew, "by hand"...
she drew a flower on a black fabric scrap and sewed around it. The quilt on the table is the first I ever did!
Grandson loves this doggie and so does Henry, but you'll have to wait till Wednesday to see that!
"I lost two teeth, the tooth fairy left $5 for the first tooth, and $1 for the second!"
When I said I only got twenty-five cents for mine, DD reminded me that 25 cents doesn't
buy anything anymore!
Later we went downtown to the town square and had lunch.
Then the kids got shaved ice for dessert~
Blue shaved ice leaves a blue tongue~!
We visited the Town Square library where we sat and read books.
One book I read to my GD had a bit about prejudice in the story and I got to explain this concept to her.
She understood and we both agreed it was a very very terrible thing.
The kids got to see Grandma's art hanging at the library,
which was a thrill for me!
Okay, enough, let's go!
The visits are always too short for me, but the kids were asking
when they can come back for a two night sleep over!
I loved seeing my sweet family walking my noontime walk...
Thanks for sharing my joy with me!
