 Helped Gary with chores.

 He went down to Java and picked up Ariana at Jenny's.  Daniela was off to a 3 hour soccer camp.
 Ariana made brownies.
 We did a little cast signing.
 Gary picked up our friend Helen out at Glen Darach Farm and she came to spend the day with us.
 We played a little Sequence....
 She read out in the swing.

 We made strawberry shortcake.

 Ariana started reading her book by local author Carolyn Mackler.
 Jen dropped off Finn, Coop and Daniela on her way to a stock club dinner.

 Familiar looking?
 Finn entertained us with many stories.

 After dinner, Grampa and Coop started digging up garlic.

 Helen is going to have a beautiful jacket to wear when she goes back to Scotland!
Thanks to one of my good pals.
 Andrea arrived just before dark to pick her up.
 One of our neighbors and long time school friend of Jenny's stopped over.
So good to see Darrin.  He looks great.
 Everyone left and I was ready to crash.
What a great time we had with Helen.
Night all.

  3. stunning colours of the Day Lilies, ditto for the cast,well done Ariana to manage other things with all that weight on your arm.Lori, hope the knee and all else is so much better. Cheers from Jean

  4. Looks like the weather is cooperating with their visit. I sure hope she is allowed to visit the other grandparents...would be a shame to miss it because of an accident (how did it happen??). If she's baking brownies I hope that means she can travel.

    Everyone looks so happy and having fun. Nice to see.

  5. Wow! What a wonderful day you had with your friend and granddaughters. I didn't know Ariana had hurt her arm. Hope she's OK. And I trust you're getting enough rest, Lori? Have a great weekend. (((Hugs))) Jo

  6. thanks for a great day Lori.Loved meeting your fabulous grandchildren. Helen
