{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ June 22, 2014

Lots to show this week.  A particular little granddaughter had a birthday recently, so we made a trip to help her and her parents celebrate. We had lots of fun, and it was nice to take a break from unpacking!


Here's the birthday girl.  Isn't she darling?

Arane turned two years old, and she is a sweet little imp. So funny and inventive! My mother, Arane's great-grandmother, made the trip with us.  Arane didn't remember her from the last visit, but it didn't take her long to warm up to Great-grandma.    It was a blessing to have four generations all together!

I hope I look this good when I'm eighty-four!


Birthday hats, a sprinkler and friends to play with, cupcakes and ice cream . . . what more do you need to have a successful birthday party?

Aunty Hannah was {happy} to see everyone!

We also celebrated Father's Day together.  Dave was thrilled to get a replacement for his beloved, defunct popcorn popper.

And Justin had a little help opening his present.  After all, she had spent a good part of the days previous practicing her present-opening technique.


When it's bath time for the stuffed animals, the most propitious way to dry them is to hang them by their ears on clothesline.


Sometimes when you try to take pictures of a perpetually moving toddler, all you get is the backside of her dress . . .

Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {phfr}!
