A birthday surprise for Grammy

Shhhhh...its Grammy's birthday. And we are taking her a surprise.


A quick stop to add some fresh flowers to the basket.

Pulling into the drive I was laying on the horn...out runs Grammy, "Whats wrong? Whats wrong? Whats going on?" Happy Birthday, we all shout. She was very surprised!

The flowers need some water.


A pretty picnic lunch for the birthday girl.

There were tuna sandwiches, chips, and fresh from the oven banana bread.


I think she liked it.

Then we had a little play time. Can you see J in the tree?


How about now? He loves to climb that tree every time hes at Grammy's.


This is Zeus. He lives in the house behind my ma. Hes just a pup and really likes to play. He was quite put off that there was a fence that separated him and Darby.

And Darby? Well, she was a little bit scared of that great big Zeus.

But once she realized that there was a fence keeping her safe, well, she just wore that poor ol German Shepard puppy right out. Running back and forth. Up to the fence and back again....


A little assessment of the situation.


And off again!

K couldnt keep up with that little Darbster either.

But she did bonk her head on this whilst trying.


And of course she had to look up to see exactly what it was that she hit.


And then we all began to laugh.


It was a great little lunch time surprise. Happy Birthday, Ma!

You are such a great daughter. I can't think of a mother out there that wouldn't think you gave the perfect gift. Aren't parents wonderful? I'm happy that you get to spend so much time with your ma. I hate the miles that separate me from mine - and I love every second I get to spend with her and dad.

Happy Birthday Grammy! I think the family likes you just a little bit. :)

Can I babysit Darby when you go out of town? I know we live hundreds of miles apart and all, but you can just drive by the house and I'll meet you in the driveway. You won't even have to get out of the car. Unless maybe you need a pitstop.
