We have had a very busy and very fun time at our house the past couple weeks.  Girl Out of the House and That Boy were here visiting with their very adorable baby.  I was in grandma heaven!  Naturally, all of my pictures this week will be about their visit.

Girl Out of the House bought these flowers! Sweet Pea with her Grandpa Girl Out of the House is lovely too! {Happy} Sweet Pea was very happy (and fascinated!) when Girl of the House practiced her viola~
She loved to swing with her daddy!  {Funny} Sweet Pea's hair is in an awkward, Harry Potter-esque stage . . . And she's not sure what to think about peaches!    At the zoo~ {Real} My mother was able to visit too and meet her first great-grandchild.  Four generations~ Join Like Mother, Like Daughter for more fun!
