The Weekend With Dara!

We had a wonderful weekend with our granddaughter! First thing, we made mint donuts!

Then we went to a free event with face painting and bouncy houses!


Kitchen bowling followed!

This was followed by winning her first ever game of Cootie, and playing the electric drums.


During rests and at bedtime, Sunny snuggled with her.



Sunday morning started with breakfast, then she got herself ready for church. Including fixing her own hair and getting dressed.



She was so excited with our church that she came home dancing and spinning around. Someone gave her two bags of M&M's!


By late afternoon, Phil, Sunny, and Dara were all just a wee bit tired. But I had to remain alert to take pictures!

“You’ll see your children grow up, your family lovely and lissome as orchard grass. You’ll arrive at your grave ripe with many good years, like sheaves of golden grain at harvest.

Dara and your kitty sleeping together is one of the sweetest pictures I've ever seen. I love the pic of her brushing her own hair, she looks so pleased with herself. She has such a sweet looking face. :)
glad you enjoyed your weekend.
