Liz Smith came to surprise Gran while I was there Monday, & then came here to spend the night and to breakfast the next morning with Addie and June. What a great time we had!
Sunday afternoon we were at Greg and Tabitha’s for Whitley-Grace and Mackinsey Sue’s Unicorn birthday party – WG’s 4th and Mackie’s 2nd. It was so much fun watching all of the kids playing outside. Present opening and birthday cake was inside, though :-). What a special day.

It is a huge sculpture garden, with treasures really around every turn. Just beautiful and so impressive. We had a […]
There was a small but very well done museum at Atalaya Castle with exhibits about the Huntingtons’ life away from the beach there. Both in the castle and in the museum there was lots of information about how much they loved their dogs, and several pictures of Jean Smith, who cared for the dogs wherever […]
