(Or, Grandma's House)
Tulips, daffodils, dandelions and daisy-chains. We were living up all the springtime fantasies.
:: We did some big-city shopping, taking walks downtown.
:: When we first walked in the door to my mom's house, we stepped outside into her yard and almost instantly, Juniper said, "The hot tub! The hot tub that changes colors!" I was floored that she remembered. We only soaked once when we were here last and never talked about it again. Then she touched my mom's outdoor table and said, "This is where we eat corn!" Granted it was less than a year ago, but she does this all the time. She remembers weird little things, sometimes from well over a year ago. We even think she remembers Osa, although we do talk about her a lot.
:: We polished off our stay with a trip to the pizza joint that has a carousel. Of course.
Hazel ^ was born with a worried look on her face. She truly was enjoying herself on the "ORSIES!!!"
:: On the drive home, Juniper both surprised and entertained us by drawing pictures of each family member. This one is my husband.
