Let's catch up on some of the happenings around here.
Sunday, May 2
Greta and Lynn and the boys came to visit that afternoon.
Of course the boys spent time on the trampoline!
It was a beautiful day for visiting outdoors.
The boys decided it would be so fun to sit on the back of the truck.
Toby is successful in getting up there 😊
And it was a fun as they expected it would be!
They went home with two toys that are no longer being used here.
The boys were so thrilled!
Saying it again,
these times are soul fillers for me.
The past year has been hard,
it's caused many barriers in being with my family as usual.
we have persevered.
We have made it work as we could
and keeping all of us healthy.
And that, my friends,
is a worthy goal!

Ellen was our sunshine on that cloudy day.
Shirt from Sister B's Tee's....
we love them!
Later she went for her second vaccine...
an accomplishment for a girl with a needle phobia!!
We are so proud of her!
Her reward was a take out meal from nearby Olive Garden...
She loved that 😊
Tuesday, May 4
Pretties we saw on our walk that afternoon...
Our beautiful neighborhood!
Noah wanted to get the mail!
We have hummingbirds!!
Thursday, May 6
A special little boy celebrated a 6th birthday!
Nana says he can have cookies for breakfast...
one of the perks from living with your Nana!
(and she doesn't say it must be ok with the parents on this day 😁)
He also ate cereal with his dad..
a perk with Dad working from home for the past year...
it's a highlight of his day everyday!
They went to Scoops for dinner, a game of mini golf,
then ice cream!
What a fun day!!
(We got takeout from Scoops for our dinner...so good!)
But wait, the day is not over yet.
Gifts, of course!
Opening our gift...
he loves building with these tiles!
This is from his parents.
Now he doesn't need his moms phone to count his steps!
He also got walkie-talkies from is siblings.
They are having a blast with those!
Sunday, May 9
The celebration continues....
Such an expressive kid!!
He helped his mom make his strawberry lava cake!!
This kid knows what he wants and was very involved in producing it
from start to finish!
He celebrated on the porch with his other grandparents.
Blowing out the six candles!
We also had more company that afternoon...
Gina, Justin and Bailey!
We visited in the garage...
it was soooo cold outside.
At least we were out of the breezes.
Gina and Justin ate some birthday cake and Bailey got lots of doggie treats.
They brought me a pot of beautiful pink tulips...
a sweet gift that I will enjoy for many years!
It's a new week filled with new opportunities...
let's keep focus on making the best of those opportunities.
Have a great week!
