What A Surprise!

We drove to Milwaukee on Sunday
to visit with Mimi. TheIslandScout
 & BabyE.
Yes! Her hair is
that color and curly
NATURALLY.
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
there.
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.

Oh..Yeah..
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.
WOW! 
How did THAT happen?
It MUST BE magic!

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

We have a friend who has gorgeous hair like that.
Love the group photo. I'm 5'8" and it's very rare for me to be surrounded by a group taller than me. Lucky you!!

Debby said...

She has beautiful hair. My SIL is like that...not the curls but the color.
As she ages the color gets prettier. It started out very red.
I can see the ladies scrunching down.....some really talk folks.
I love your surprise.

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

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.
