One of the fun things I've looked forward to with my grandchildren is having tea parties. So it was a lot of fun to put this little party together and take it to Katie's house when I was going to care for her on May 16. We even dressed up for the occasion.
Katie didn't know what I was doing when I had her stay upstairs while I got everything set up, but as you can see, she was delighted with the surprise!
And when it was all over, she loved washing the dishes while I dried them and put them away.

After playing there, we came back and had lunch and played in the big empty room in the basement.
Beniah and Elijah had to go home earlier than Katie did, so she played with the little old car, the big wheel bike and the swing.
Think we should do it again?

We had a shower at our house on May 12 to honor Joann and her coming baby, Clara Clementine Boswell -- due July 27.
It was mostly family with some close friends. Lots of fun!
Little miss Evie is looking forward to meeting her new cousin.
The youngest guests at the shower gathered close to deliver gifts to Joann and watch the fun as she opened them.
|The owl cupcakes really made a hit with everyone....|
|Grandpa enjoyed his little granddaughters, Evie and Katie -- out on the deck. He wasn't brave enough to really attend the shower!|
|...and Samwise loved those sweet little muffins!|
|Here's the sweet new Mama...|
|Owl be seeing you!|

my "Bethie" and me --
Arrrgh, Maties!! It's Pirates!!!
On April 28 we got to see "Pirates of Penzance", performed by Tumwater High School, and directed by none other, than our own daughter, Joann! They did a fabulous job, and we enjoyed the show immensely!
Here is the beautiful Mrs. Joann Boswell, director of the show, with her husband, Matt.
...and Little Miss Evie isn't really reserved, but she's pretty cute! (don't you agree?)
After the show, some other "pirates" took over the stage. 'Better look out! Some of them look pretty scary!!

|Life is full of surprises. But don't let them get you down!|
|Some bunny loves you!|
|"There were 3 in the bed, and the little one said, 'roll over'!"|
|... and the race is on!|
|"Press any key -- where is the any key?"|
|"Have fun storming the castle!"|
|Sometimes a different perspective helps.|
