262: Sunday signage (and more)

(Sign seen somewhere on a back road somewhere in Ohio on our way home this afternoon.)

Well, I’ve never had a straw berry but if they are as good as strawberries, perhaps we should have stopped at Straw Berrie’s to check them out.

I had a wonderful (albeit too short) time with my granddaughters and their parents today.  The Exquisite E and the Magnificent M are as beautiful as always.  One of these days we’ll be able to find more time with them.  In the meantime, I’ll take what I can get and be thankful for it.

Playing on the slide, still in stage make-up

The Exquisite E, who has been dancing for a couple of years, is taking ballet this year so we saw her in her first ballet recital this morning.  She was exquisite.  Of course.  Not that I’m biased or anything.  And, having been a dancer myself, I do have a little knowledge of the subject to help me judge.

She had another performance this evening (different dance), but we were unable to stay for that one.

The Magnificent M, who is a BIG fan of Minnie Mouse and all things her big sister does, will be starting dance sometime later in the year and will be performing next spring.

In the meantime, we watched her performing on the slide, and playing Peek-a-boo, both of which she is quite talented at.  The way she throws herself into things, falls, and then gets up and says, “again!” amazes me.  She is a fearless little gal.  Shy, but fearless.  I don’t believe the two things are quite the same (although others may disagree).   Good for her.  I could learn a few lessons from both of my granddaughters, and often do.

I feel very lucky and blessed to have been able to spend so much time with family lately.  I hope your weekend has brought you similar gifts, whether it be family, friends, or other companions/company who bring you joy, laughter, and love.

Well, I need to do something about dinner for tonight.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the mystery fruit, some tiger lilies, and whatever else captures my attention/fancy.  Or, if anyone out there has any suggestions/requests for something you want to see or know about Life in the Bogs, let me know.  I wouldn’t mind shaking things up a little.  🙂

  2. What sweet, sweet pictures of your granddaughters! ♥ I’m counting down the days until I see mine again… AND I found out this morning that grandbaby #2 is on the way!
    The time with loved ones always seems to go by too fast…

    I bet they were the best tasting strawberries arround. How ?
    In the same sort of way when you see a popstar with crooked teeth and a big behind you know they can sing 🙂

    hmm, those berries might be a tad dry…
    but the grandkids look very sweet

    LOL. I’ve never had a straw berry either. Great capture Robin. 🙂

  9. Such beautiful girls! My Butterfly was like your M – an absolutely fearless child. Hoping that carries-over now that she’s the Mom…

    Off to spend the day with her – and the Baby Bear, of course!

    beautiful young ladies!

    I like the straw berry sign — reminds me of a story my dad tells about the man who would walk up and down the street when he was young yelling (and seliing), “Straw-berries! Strawwwww-berries!!!”

    Your granddaughters are just adorable!

    The sign is cute and so are your granddaughters. Children really do have things to teach us. It’s precious to stand back and just observe them. Good for you that you’re spending lots of time with your family. It’s probably all that really matters.

    Actually, Robin. I just left Kathy’s blog where she talks about her memory of her grandmother. A beautiful tribute. One of the comments spoke of touching others lives as being all that matters.
