Birthdays, Birds and Pillowcases

It's been one busy and fun week with my granddaughter and daughter here visiting. My granddaughter will be three (free) the end of July and is beyond adorable.  We had a great week but I admit to being a tad bit exhausted. It was also her pop-pops birthday so we had to have a celebration.
 Choosing an activity that a 3 year old likes can be a challenge, also being anywhere outside this week in 90 degree heat is even more challenging. We settled on the NC State Fish Hatchery which has lots of woods, an indoor mini fish and reptile exhibit and of course lots of fish. Audrey loved seeing them, they really are pretty.

 I spy with my little eye a birds nest up in the corner...
 and so there were.
 We headed into the woods which was at least 10 degrees cooler and delightful.
 It was a beautiful walk even amongst the stuffed bears.
 Back home we had a Carvel cake. Growing up in New York, Carvel was the ice cream to have. I've always had a policy that when I teach or visit NY, I will not leave until I get my Carvel soft serve fix. Well, here in downtown Asheville, they do have the cakes, not quite as good as soft serve but we gobbled it down.
 Dear hubby, pop-pop and dad holding the newest addition to our furry family - Fraggle. he's only 4 months old and already huge!
 And with our daughter Jill, son Mike and Audrey.
 Well on another note, I did get a little sewing done this week and managed to finish them up as they pulled up the driveway - pillowcases for Audrey's big girl bed.
 She loves Monster's Inc....
 and this is the Princess and the Pea.
The fabric was darling - all in all a wonderful week.
And today being Father's Day - wishing all dads a great day!
Til next time....
