Isaw, Fairy House, and Sunflowers

These are pictures from last Saturday. We had an impromptu isaw picnic at the UP campus. MIL and our niece Chesca were with us. The kids had a good time running around and making another more ambitious fairy house. I also had an interesting conversation with the kids. Chesca asked where the noise was coming from and I explained about crickets. One flew/jumped right in front of us, so we were able to look at it more closely. While I was going on and on about crickets, Marguerite piped in with "What Dr. Cricket (her pedi) say?" Since it was a direct enough question, I curbed the impulse to explain the difference between the insect and the doctor, and answered, "Not to scratch your itchies" (from her last visit when she had the chicken pox).

Summer is sunflower season in UP, especially along University Ave. We haven't had the chance to take a picture of the rows along the road, but did find these ones at the lagoon area.

What a gorgeous little girl!!! Nice to see you having good summer fun. Can hardly wait for our summer. But I'm not looking forward to the heat.

Thanks, Mindi. It's been raining here actually, but thankfully, we have had some nice weather as well. :)
