Tea set

 Betsy ordered a special tea set for Kathryn and Lilah to play with while the ladies and older girls sipped from breakable tea cups at Grace's shower. 

Part way through the evening, Betsy overheard Kathryn saying to herself, "Happy, happy."

Garden tea

Last week we hosted a garden tea party in honor of Brian's fiancee Grace. It was a lovely evening.

White dishes

 My Pfaltzgraff dishes were looking a little worse for their wear. I did a little research, gathered materials and scrubbed and scrubbed. 

I was pleased with the result.

Kayak seat

 Betsy and her crew helped Naomi and me install a new seat in our double kayak so that we can have more comfortable trips down the river.

Eating outside

 One of my favorite summer activities is eating outside with family. It's so easy to just add another table and include some more people.  Last week my cousin Carmen and her children joined our usual Wednesday evening crew for a total of 17 people.

 I bought myself a cart at Harbor Freight, and then a can of spray paint at Ace Hardware.
