After that wonderful breakfast at the Cottage we took the guests to visit the homes of our children who live here. We went to my son Michael's house first because he only lives about a mile from us. His wife Karla was at work and his daughter Eleanor was playing dress up.
Aunt Jean was a big hit with the kids. She brought some gifts and of course being that they are "my" grandchildren they sniffed out the candy first and the gifts came second. I had a reputation when I was growing up of always coming into a room just when the candy or dessert was being served to the grown-ups and all the kids were outside playing.
Uncle Jim and Michael discussing March Madness
Ellie is really starting to like her grandpa especially when he will put on jewelry for her.
She even gets him to try some on:)
What a happy girl...hugs all around
Next stop was for lunch at a cafe called Charlie's where Garrison Keillor (author and radio personality from prairie home companion) use to come and I believe he did some writing or maybe just gathered his thoughts for writing. He began the whole Lake Wobegon Phenomenon
What a couple of tourists, taking pictures in the cafe
We then went to my daughter Mary's house to see the new baby Harper Rose
Uncle Jim was a big hit with Hunter. He loves anyone who will play with him
After a nice visit it was time to go home for a little rest and then dinner. Mary looks pretty good for just having a baby, don't you think?
