I started this post earlier and did something dumb, and lost it, so I will try again and hope to avoid whatever it was I did.
Yesterday was a day pretty much filled with the four grandchildren being here. We had a very large fort constructed in our living room, with quilts, chairs toys, the couch, etc. I do wish I had taken a picture, as it was quite impressive. Each of the kids had their own "room," which involved, of course, quite a bit of crawling to get to. And then, of course, they each had to have an assortment of toys in their "room," so we had quite an assortment of stuff spread all over. All too soon, the kids will be too old for things like this, so we need to enjoy it while it lasts.
Today is our darling Tylee's seventh birthday. There was a birthday party at a tea house near here for her and her little girlfriends today. They dress up in dress up clothes and shoes that are there, and then have their hair, nails and makeup done. They looked so cute. Then they have "tea," which consists of lemonade and little snacks suitable to their age group. (No cucumber sandwiches there!!) I will plan to post a picture another time of Tylee and her cousin Aubrey there, all dressed up. Before we know it, they will be doing their own hair and makeup. Time goes so fast.
We're nearing the end of our blueberries in our back yard. We have four bushes and have enjoyed a very good crop this year. We will go back to frozen berries when the home grown ones are gone.
I think Dick and I will go to the beach Monday or Tuesday and spend a night there. It's about two hours from home, and the weather should be just wonderful. We have some friends staying there all week, so we'll spend a little time with them and walk and walk and eat and eat, and just relax a bit. The Oregon coast is just drop-dead gorgeous, so if you ever get a chance to see it, you should take advantage of the opportunity.
