It's Family Time

It's a family weekend!! My son, his wife and 17 month old daughter - our granddaughter :) 

They are visiting from Kansas City. It's been 5 months since I saw them, so I'm especially excited to have them around. It's wonderful to see them, hold my granddaughter, watch how much she can do now, how much she's grown. It's amazing in 5 months how much a child changes!!  She's walking, dancing, singing, talking, swimming, up and down the steps, playing all the toys, reading all the books. She loves the dogs, the yard, the pool. And of course her grandma and grandpa!!!! And everything is quick - short attention span, she does something for a few minutes, then off to something else. So much fun! So much action!! She wore me out!!

So, in the usual way at our house - there's lots of food, lots of laughter, good stories, catching up, and excellent family time. It's a short time, but a good time.

Hummingbird Hawkmoth

video

This strange looking critter hangs out on our butterfly bushes. We've seen at least 3 of them out there. Plus we think some of what look like butterflies are really hummingbird moths. Very interesting and fun to watch. Totally harmless, they just love the nectar. '
