The sun is shining, the skies are blue, and it’s been a great week here in the far northwest corner of the contiguous 48. We were blessed not only with fabulous weather for Memorial Day weekend, but also with a visit from son #2 and dear DIL. It was shocking to realize that they had not been over since last August! Aren’t they a couple of cuties? Ok, I’ll admit I’m a bit biased… maybe a LOT biased. 🙂
Anyway, it was great to have the kids here for the weekend. We enjoyed playing Wii, a rousing domino tournament, a delicious barbecue, golf for the guys, a bit of ‘retail therapy’ for the girls, and neighborhood game night too!
Another fun thing was making a tart with dear DIL! I’d purchased a tart pan last fall, thinking I’d give it a try, and had never done it. It just sat there in the cupboard, empty and lonesome. DIL suggested we try making a berry tart – and folks, this thing not only looked great, it tasted marvelous as well!
Last night we buzzed across the border to see granddaughter Emily in her Irish dance recital. I love Irish music and Irish dancing, and we think Emily did a fantastic job! Please check out the video I made on youtube. 🙂
Today we had a deer family stroll through the front yard. Normally I’m not a “deer lover” because they voraciously destroy my plant life. But today, well, they were so adorable I had to snap a photo.
This is the ultimate SURE SIGN that spring has truly arrived. Aren’t they soooo cute?!! (until they get bigger and start eating my roses!!)
Happy Spring, and happy weekend everyone!
