Thank you Nanci for heart-melting Father’s Day card. I dearly cherish it. And so crafty!
My sister recently flew in from Mammoth for a lovely visit. We spent some quality sister time at the spa at Cavallo Point (thank you Rob xxoxoxox), and had some quality time with Harper Sue and Memer’e too. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend.
With shout-outs to Pop Pop, Tu Tu and Mer Mer.
Team Lord packed up the crew and headed east to the central valley this past weekend for a visit to Memére’s house.
We played at the house, took a stroll around the UC Merced campus, and had dinner with Jan.
The 2 hour drive was a breeze since we traveled during Harper Sue’s normal afternoon nap.
The first of many trips to visit and looking forward to including a visit to Yosemite next time.
…no not the Kobe kind but rather the lucky cows who ended up as residents at Little Farm in Tilden Park, Berkeley.
Memere, Harper Sue, and I all headed to Little Farm last week to visit the farm animals and checkout the garden. We stopped off at the grocery store on the way and bought 4 bunches of celery (aka: cow candy). The celery ended up feeding a few geese and 3 cows for about 30 minutes.
Harper has heard a cow’s “muuuu” on iPhone apps, segments of Sesame Street, and Rob and my impersonations but never from a cow itself. The real cow is MUCH louder, deeper, and longer than any rendition she had heard prior and was a bit startling. Harper literally did an abrupt 180º turn away from the barn and toward Mama and Memere when she heard it. Once with us, she was back to her curious (on-the-cautionary-side) self.[slideshow]
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:
Grandma came for a short visit yesterday and, as always, came adorned with beautiful jewelry for Harper Sue to admire.
