Fort Nana's

Happy Monday Friends, It's the end of June and I'm wondering where the month went? I hope you had a great weekend; we did! On Saturday afternoon 7 of our 8 granddaughters came over for dinner, movies and a sleepover. Cousins who are the very best of friends, loved spending time together-especially at Nana's and Papa's. Here is the first fort hubby has built for the grands, here in our new home. It is bigger than at our last house and may need to expand more, before the next time we have all girls over. Maybe we should just put our tent downstairs-lol, at least it would hold all the girls. As it turned out only four girls slept in the fort; the two oldest slept outside and my peanut shared the guest bed with me. She has been having a hard time adjusting to a move at the end of July. Add tired onto that and she became pretty upset.

Here the girls are watching the movie Tinkerbell.  I love how they all brought their American Girl dolls.

Even Hunter was happy to be surrounded by his girls.  WE had so much fun, ate big meals(they are all going through growth spirts)and even went on a walk.  We went by a nearby pond and were amazed at the size of the tadpoles!  We also went through the neighborhood picking out our favorite flowers and seeing if Nana could name them. I'm pleased I passed that test.
Today has already been full~we took Hunter to the groomer, went by two business where we needed to drop off paperwork for the new house(for our daughter's family), went grocery shopping, to Walmart, to our insurance company and back to pick Hunter up.
 Our dear friends, who used to be our next door neighbors in Ca., are coming for a visit tomorrow.  We are so excited and I know the days will pass so quickly, between playing cards and different activities we are planning. Barb and I may even get in a couple of visits to quilt stores.  I'll be around but probably not daily; so I hope you have a fantastic week and celebrate our freedom here in the U.S. 
Joy to you!
