My sister and law and twin nieces came to visit on Saturday.
They live about 4 hours away but had a rowing tournament nearby.
It was great fun for the boys to get together with their cousins.
They don't get to see one another very often.
And, it was wonderful to visit with my husband's sister as well.
I really like her and wish we lived closer.
I had to go to Target to pick up a few things and I just happened
to see this sweet little rug on clearance.
It fits perfectly under the new kitchen table.
I noticed that they had a selection of things from
Chip and Joanna Gaines new line of home goods.
I picked up a sweet little tray for the table
and a set of salt and pepper shakers.
Red geraniums remind me of my old landlord.
He was a cantankerous old man with a good heart.
He loved red geraniums and would buy a flat of them every year
and then he would call me...
"Kara, I've got the geraniums for you to plant..."
And I would get to work planting them under the trees in the side yard
while he sat in the chair enjoying the summer air.
He passed away a few years back but I buy red geraniums every year
in his honor.
It was a beautiful day on Sunday.
We went to the wharf for the first time of the season.
Joey spun around on the rope planning his summer jumping..
The water is still too cold for swimming yet though.
When I was visiting my grandson we walked through the grass in the backyard.
He bent his little 19 month old self down and said "dandelion"
as he pointed to the yellow flower.
