Gardens and Cake

How many times have you worn your swimsuit this summer?  I hope you've had ample opportunities to laze by a pool or run through the sprinkler. Yeah, my swimsuit's not my favorite outfit either.  Smile.

 On Monday I met Ann from The Garden Spot!  We went to the Denver Botanic Gardens.  You can see better photos of our blog field trip on Ann's blog.

 I felt comfortable with Ann right away.  She's friendly and happy.  We toured around the gardens and gabbed.

 We loved the Chihuly exhibit. You can read more about him here.

 The day at the gardens was a day well spent. Yay!
Speaking of days well spent, we've had these two cubs here at our house.

The best way to keep Granny and the girls happy all day is to plan old fashioned fun.  Cake.

We baked a birthday cake for Sam's favorite stuffed animal, Lambie.  

Bill and I are off for a short trip.  We'll be back soon.  I have lots of Granny biz to do for a while, so there are no creative endeavors in progress at the moment.

I'm doing a lot of reading.  The Big House by George Hole Colt is fascinating.  I really like reading about family vacation homes, summers by the sea, that sort of thing.

Must go pack by knapsack. I wish you smooth sailing today, kind reader.
