What A Surprise!

We drove to Milwaukee on Sunday
to visit with Mimi. TheIslandScout
 & BabyE.
Yes! Her hair is
that color and curly
Makes you want to cry, doesn't it?

We decided to drive to
Cedarburg for lunch.
 is a historic town
between Green Bay and Milwaukee.
There are some beautiful old houses
We ate lunch across from this one.
We sat out back under a canopy of
trees surrounded by gardens.
Rustic little utility shed on the river bank.
(Coulda moved the garbage cans
but this is real life, folks)
My two sons-in-law hamming it up..

Lulu covering her braces..
sitting next to a friend of Mimi's, Nicki.
Ria is always happy to smile for Nana.

And SweetCheeks always sits as
close to me as possible.

At the end of lunch,
we all separated to go different ways
but posed first for a group picture.

I'm almost 5'8" so you can see how
tall everyone else is-some of them
are squinched down for the picture.

The surprise!
Are you wondering what the suprise is?
When we got in the car and looked
in the back seat we found something
very special there.
Something for us to keep and enjoy
for the weekend.
How did THAT happen?
It MUST BE magic!

Magic AND Magical!
What more could a Nana ask for?

  15. Hi Di,
    Just wanted to stop by and say hi and invite you to stop by my new blog, Simple Pleasures /formerly Michelles Cozy Cottage.

  16. Have a great weekend with the little one. I am assuming you weren't referring to the ice cream cone as the weekend surprise.

  17. What a lovely day and a wonderful surprise in your car!!! Enjoy!!

  18. You have the BESTEST family ever, D! I loved seeing a photo of you (finally!), too! Now I know where your family gets their good looks. (and no....I'm not brown nosing you so that you'll come for a visit this month....). ♥

  20. What a beautiful looking family you have!! And the kids look like they are having much fun!

  21. What a nice surprise! I have a surprise spending the weekend with me, also. Grandpa has taken her to run errands as it's a busy work weekend, too - so I need to finish a little editing. Almost finished - so now, I can play until 4, when I leave to do a Hello Baby.

  22. It does not get any better than this. So nice to see the two brother-in-laws hamming it up together. You have an awesome family!
