Penny asked questions and was very interested in learning about the birds. It was an excellent chance to learn about conservation together. I didn't get a photo of the beautiful American Kestrel. We saw one in the neighborhood last year. We learned that sighting them is increasingly rare. I see hawks very often in our yard and in the neighborhood. I also know the sound of the local bird's alarm call when the hawks are on the hunt.
Traditions we can share with our girl.
We were so glad we did. It was just warm enough to be comfortable, and brisk enough to
get our blood moving.
My old friend the Cottonwood.
Our girl had a prom at our house
This was her date. This pool noodle stands in for dates and princes as the occasion demands. His name is Josh, but today he was Sam. Please notice the pink cowboy boots under her dress.
I love this part of being a Grandma so much. The pretending. I still love to pretend, and Penny has quite the imagination.
I found the dress at the thrift. It was so big when I bought it. Now it's just right for Prom.
The peonies also came from the thrift.
I had to play several songs to dance to, and then the buffet, You have to have snacks for the dancers. Penny put out all the things I had in the hot chocolate bar, marshmallows, two kinds, and gingerbread cookies, a bagel and blueberries from breakfast. It was a lovely event with the perfect hostess.
My heart just bursts with love for our girl. We have so much fun together.
I also wanted to mention that Penny read me a bedtime story! I told her I've waited a long time for her to read to me, I even had the book of Read Your Own Bedtime Story waiting for the right time.
Our Penny will be six in just a couple of months. Time does fly when you are having fun.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
