Keeping Up with Gramma

Having a toddler means Mommy is usually running around a lot.

But I have to say it was really hard to keep up with Gramma!

We all went to the park for fun playtime with Dear Bebe...

Look at her coming down that slide at only 19 months! No fear! (Where did THAT come from?)

Picking "flowers" (dandelions) for Gramma...

Then after Dear Bebe went to bed... instead of relaxing we decided it was time to get "crafty."

I enlisted Gramma (Ms. Daisy of the Daisy Chain by the way in case you don't know she is my Mother) to make these lovely boxes for my website.
I just love them! She just used scrapbook paper.
I finally got back to my patriotic projects I was excited about last year here ... and made five rosettes for a banner. More on those later.

Then the next day we had a tea party! My neighbor came over for tea and cookies. We really enjoyed having a "girl's afternoon."

The partying continued later that night with strawberry shortcake and ice cream while researching and pricing antiques for the booth the next day.

I'm completely wiped out but am hoping to recover soon...

Your day looks like so much fun ~ I miss those days when mine were little and going to the park was all we had to do :)

Your strawberry shortcake has left my mouth watering!

I want to tell you how much I enjoyed spending time with you, Bebe and DH! I am still in recovery mode. . .LOL! And, thanks to DH for the strawberry shortcake and to you, Jillian, for the potato salad that we always said tasted just like "ice cream!"
