Dan, Bjarne, and Robert - Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the special fathers in my life -- my dear husband and Bjarne and Robert, my sons-in-law. Miss Emma spent the day playing with us and Molly and Bjarne came for dinner. We enjoyed grilled chicken, sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob, and grilled veggies. Strawberry sundaes finished our meal. I didn't take a single picture this weekend, but here is a picture I took of Emma and Bjarne last weekend.

Molly, Bjarne, and Emma came over to celebrate my birthday today. We had a wonderful dinner - roasted beef tenderloin, tomato salad, and linguine dressed with olive oil, lemon, garlic and parsley. We adults had angel food cake, ice cream, fresh strawberries, and whipped cream for dessert. Emma enjoyed her first popsicle! As you can see from these pictures, she liked it!

Splash Fun at Nana's!

Emma spent the day with us while Molly was catching up on work. We bought Emma a little wading pool and a cute sprinkler. Here are some pictures and a video of her enjoying the water fun! Matty was a trooper, as usual with Emma, going into the sprinkler fully clothed.

Jayla's Birthday Party

Emma's cousin Jayla celebrated her 5th birthday yesterday. She had a party at the clubhouse by her pool with pizza, chips, cake, a clown, and fun games. Emma was the youngest one there, but enjoyed hanging with the big kids. She especially enjoyed watching the older children play musical chairs and also got a turn with the pinata (shaped like a high heeled shoe). She even got in on the scramble for the candy! Emma adores her cousin Jayla!

Note Cards

I was in Denver this week and got home Friday afternoon. Last night I started playing with the pen tablet I got for my laptop. I drew a strawberry and then incorporated it into some note cards for the girls and me. I then started on the note cards I promised Bobby months ago. All are done! Emmy, I'll bring them to the beach or mail them -- just let me know your preference. We are going to Jayla's 5th birthday party this afternoon. She is having a pool party and Molly and Bjarne hired a clown to paint faces and add some extra fun. I'll be sure to get some pictures!
