Grandma Corzine (aka Memere) came for a quick visit yesterday with her sister (aka Harper Sue’s great Aunt Kay). It was a fast and furious activity day that included swim class with a 3-person cheer squad on the benches, luncheon, and finally story time with Memere:
We met up with The Lord’s Gang at Huntington Gardens on Sunday morning and spent the day meandering through the beautiful grounds. We took an unplanned break near a lovely pond and gave the kiddo’s a chance to explore.
Harper Sue attempted to purse snatch G Grandma Sue’s bag, pull Cousin Zach’s hair, and wrestle her Dada to the ground before convincing Grandma Tu Tu to carry her into a restricted zone. All in a days adventure for our sinister ‘lil SueBee.
All in all it was a lovely day and Grandpa Lord posted some nice pictures of Harper Sue on her best behavior:

Harper Sue has a GRAND week this week. She gets to see both her grandmothers and her great grandmother too!
We kicked things off on Monday with a visit from Grandma Memere/Corzine and had fun playing with toys, changing diapers, and eating! Grandma tried her hand at playing “hit the mouth” with Harper Sue as the target and stewed prunes as the beanbags. She’s number two on the leader board. See the replays and the results below. The best part of the feeding Harper is seeing her impersonation of hungry baby birds- it’s quite impressive especially with all the flapping
Over the 4 weeks we where in Maui we had 4 generations of Lord’s at the house. Great Grandma Sue (Harper Sue’s namesake) came to the island late in our trip. Her tan was better than mine when she arrived due to what I presume is many hours in her blue ribbon garden. We’re looking forward to showing Harper her Great Grandma’s garden soon.

(She would have got you a present but the only think she can make right now is poopy diapers so this is better.)
Grandparents now twice over, Peter and Barbara Lord visited Harper Sue this weekend in her San Francisco home. More pictures in this photo set.
Again, you’ll need to be my Flickr Friend to see them. Make yourself a Flickr/Yahoo account and add me “roblord” as a friend then I’ll reciprocate.
My mom came over for a visit last weekend. She and Harper bonded immediately (Harper is no dummy- she knows who’s going to spoil her silly).
