Staying in Focus: Grandchildren, Cupcakes and Hugs

We had a birthday celebration for Evelyn on Saturday. The first part went off without a hitch. We ate at Red Robin and the staff gathered round to sing her a happy birthday song and give her an ice cream sundae. Unfortunately,the museum we planned to visit was inundated by both rain and people. We couldn’t find a place to park for miles around. So we gave her a rain check and headed home to open gifts. Evelyn especially liked the harmonica and book of Jack Prelutsky poems we gave her, as well as the hundred-dollar bill that was a part of the money for swimming lessons. We topped the day off with colorful cupcakes.

Monday, our little buddy came by  to stay for a few hours. We had fun with Legos. Gavin created this Indiana Jones all by himself.IMG_3728IMG_3731



Pretty clever. Then he and Grandpa got a case of the sillies.



Finally, there is nothing like a Gavin hug!
