Well, it’s been a wonderful extra long weekend round here. We lived it up to the max and enjoyed every minute.
Not only did I get to spend oodles of time with my granddaughters, but Kerstin’s good friend Na’ama came over with her brand new baby and her three year old son for a play date. Kerstie and Na’ama have known each other since they were children, and so it was lovely for them to catch up.
Binky and Bunny, having had enough of babies and boys, snuck up to the studio to be with C and me.
I brought out the doll’s house and the girls had a great time rearranging the furniture in the rooms.
Later, when everyone left to visit Adam’s family, C and I felt a bit exhausted. Kind of like Morgan.
There are still toys all over the house waiting to be put back into the huge steamer trunk where they belong.
But in the garden, the first tree peonies are starting to open…
…and so are the first roses.
Plus, something wonderful happened today. All my children and my mother managed to find a couple hours to have lunch together. It might have been the full moon, but, with everyone’s schedules, four generations together for lunch is pretty rare.
We all met at a local Milestones restaurant on the patio.
Everything was happy and fine, till Bunny found out she wasn’t sitting next to Auntie Chloe!
Cuddles and hugs made everything better.
Ziggy is at that stage where she just wants to walk around. The trouble is that she picks everything up and puts it in her mouth, so a restaurant patio isn’t the best place to let an almost one year old loose. We played pass the baby around for two hours.
Binky and Bunny’s water glasses came to the table with those cute plastic animals and only one mermaid! The lovely hostess was sent back for a second mermaid. Another small disaster averted! In the end, all the animals and the mermaids went swimming.
Jonathan drew something inappropriate in the children’s sketch pad. That’s very Jonathan. Kerstie gave him a LOOK and drew something else over it.
This was a wonderful moment for me…for us all. Looking forward to the next chance time when we all can get together. 😀
Hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend. Sharing with JudithJudith and the mosaic bunch. 😀
