Fancy

The garden is perking up, and we got our first big harvest of radishes.  I love radishes so was particularly excited to get these beauties out of the ground.  The peas are coming in too! Grace's favorite.
 Mom and Dad had a pretty exciting week.  There was a conference in town that brought a bunch of friends together who had not seen each-other for a long time!  Randall came out who we miss so much! Also a bunch of friends that pre-date me and Owen (more or less).

 We had a great cookout with Angelos, Cecelia, Gillian, Dianne, Cathy and Randall!

Scooter was pretty happy to see Randall again, though we suspect Angelos spritzed some gravy on himself before heading over given the amount of attention that Scooter gave him.  
 It was so great that we could get this many Old-fielders together again!
 Mom and Grace got an extra play-date in with Cecelia, so they headed out to the Chinese Garden.  It was a pretty, if not drizzly day.  We did get our fortunes told, Grace has some exciting business prospects ahead of her it seems.
 After a nice wandering morning, they headed over for lunch at Broder, which in-spite of the long wait was a perfect lunch (breakfast for lunch really.)  Grace was pretty excited about these round pancakes.
 That evening, we got a movie night and Mom and Randall had a nice Girls night out for dinner and tea.
 After we said farewell to our friends, I was feeling pretty beat.  In fact I slept about all day on Saturday.  Mom suspects I was sick with the cold she was fighting the past week, I stuck by my "I just didn't get enough sleep last night" story.  The downside was that the folks didn't think it was a good idea for me to go to the Fancy Nancy show, so we called up our buddies Henry and Robyn who joined us instead.

this may have been Grace's favorite of all the shows we saw this year... Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Steves and Auntie Tami and Uncle Eddie for a great series of shows this year!
 After the show, we even got to go grab a fancy Nancy cupcake from cupcake jones.
 and though we missed Owen and Dad, Henry was a pretty perfect date.
  
 Today I pulled together a plate of radishes from our yard, plus some fresh picked salad and peas for an appetizer for lunch.  I harvested and assembled everything!  It was a really nice way to start lunch.
 After lunch we headed over to Kruger Farm to kick off berry season!  Strawberries were out, and though there are a lot left to ripen up, we had a beautiful afternoon outside.



 The folks were enjoying the afternoon so much we hung out for corn on the cob (literally dipped in a crock of butter) which we devoured, while Mom and Dad had a nice beer.
 It was a beautiful, quiet day.
Uncle Ry's dog Remy passed away this week, he was a very sweet and mellow buddy who was always wonderful with us and very patient with Scooter who was always pretty fond of him... We will miss him.
