I love their matching father-daughter focused faces here.
Annie breaks out in song occasionally. ;-)
oh, the food was so yummy! so was the company!
Annie took Grandma on a walk to show her the town . . . barefoot.
These are the yellow flowers that are now blooming on our side porch. I love them!
My garden is doing great!! Here is proof :)
my army of green bean plants
spinach--SO MUCH lovely, delicious spinach!
straight up onions, yo!
squash plant in front of my marigolds
tomato plant, the only thing I didn't grow from seed
These bushes in the back of our yard are blossoming finally. My dad told me yesterday that they are really old-fashioned, so now I like them even more!
And we finished taking up all the carpet on the first floor! Brant worked so hard to clear that shaggy old mess out of there, and then I spent every precious moment of Annie's naptimes for two days straight scrubbing on my hands and knees to get decades of grime out of wood that was NEVER VARNISHED. But the floors are so wonderful. Makes me love the house even more, if that were possible. Now we just need to varnish them, and they'll be done!
Today the three of us went to a nearby state park and went swimming in the lake and played on lots of grass with many other Memorial Day picnic-ers. It was a splendid summer day. I didn't take my camera, though, but you all can imagine what it looked like! :)
