Seven years ago, our friends Joe and Cindy came to visit with their son, Bryan. He and Hannah had loads of fun together, and he met Lily for the first time.
It was lovely meeting Jess--truth to tell, I think she's just like me and she assured me, that like me, she's never met a stranger--and Daniel and seeing Joe and Bryan again. I've not seen Joe in forever. Bryan even longer.
When the children decided it was time to eat, we headed to the Cheese Shop for lunch and a trek around CW.
Daniel and Beanie hit it off at once and we honestly
didn't see them unless we went to check on them. They were a perfect
match, Beanie in her 'Punzel mode, and Daniel apparently playing the
role of Flynn. I had to laugh when I learned Jess called Daniel "El
Destructor" since "Destructor" has long been a favorite name for Bean.
She christened the duo "Los Destructors" and decided they were too cute
and absolutely horrifying together. I have to agree.
We finished out the day with dinner at home and more raucous playing from Los Destructors until it was time for our visitors to drive home. Around 10:00 I received a text asking if I saw Daniel's Iron Man anywhere. Sure enough he was in the mess of the playroom and he is boxed and ready to ship out tomorrow.
Yesterday Ellie received a package from Daniel.
Last week was quite busy with our visitors and GG visiting and staying with Nana and Pop. We wanted to get in as much time with everyone as we could. Lissie will arrive Tuesday, so more company is on the way. Friday is Hannah Heaven Day and I'm just not sure how I'm feeling about it. Today is a bad Hannah day. I'm tired. They usually happen then. I'm definitely not writing well today and think I'll just end things here.
1. The garden:
2. Lil's artistry:
3. All the visitors we've had.
4. Ellie carrying around her big Flynn and having conversations with him. She provides both sides of the convo, typically with one of them asking the question and the other the answer (as she does all the talking). It's rather amusing.
5. The humming birds are LOVING the feeders. Why is it I love seeing my little hummers so much? It's almost fun to clean the kitchen and do the dishes because I can watch the feeders and see the birds (and squirrels...:oP).
6. Dinner with Nana and Pop followed by four hands of Hand and Foot. We played partners and Nana and I won! :oD (In case I've not mentioned it before, I pretty much NEVER win card and board games. Still, I love playing them, win or lose.)
