We have just returned from a few days with our eldest son and his family, in Arizona. We watched their 4 kids for a day and a half and one night, while they had a getaway weekend in San Francisco. Sometimes I wonder how we ever raised 4 children...They have a busy schedule and it was non-stop from the minute we arrived until their parents returned home. Tired? Yes. Fun? You betcha! Cute? Endless moments of cuteness happened over the last few days.
The girls love their little puppy.
We got to see S in action on the court.
It was super cold in Arizona over the weekend, so we did a lot of movie watching and game playing.
I was so excited to see this 58 year old dresser, with it's new coat of paint. My parents bought it in 1955, when they first moved to California. It was originally maple. Then my dad refinished it with an antique green when I was 12 years old and it was in my room until I got married. Then we re-inherited it after Mr. R graduated from dental school in 1976. We used it in our room and then in a guest bedroom until 1999 when #1 son got married. He and a friend stripped off the green paint and stained it a light maple.
This fourth generation dresser now has a gorgeous coral red painted finish and resides in our granddaughters' bedroom.
The main reason for our visit was to celebrate their youngest's second birthday.
She liked her new books.
and posed on her new quilt.
Papa suggested they could play a game of Twister on it.
And because my daughter-in-law likes the quilt so much, and the girls share a room, she asked if I would make a matching quilt so she can use them on the girls' beds. Of course, I said yes. The fabric is already ordered.
