Guess who I got to meet up with last week?
Little Calista and her Mommy and Daddy!
It had been six long months since we saw her pretty little face.
My son and his family flew to Canton, Michigan to visit my daughter-in-law's mom, sister and grandfather.
Hubby and I decided to make the 500 mile trek around the lake and the city of Chicago since this would be their only visit to the Midwest this summer.
At first little Calista who is 22 months was a little stand offish towards me.
However it didn't take long for her to warm up.
Such are the struggles of being a long distant grandparent.
We had such a nice visit with them.
It was short but so worth the drive over.
Hopefully we will be able to fly to Phoenix in October.
With the heat wave they are having I think that it might be a better month to go.
On the other hand, we have had a rather cool and wet summer so far.
Although there have been some beautiful days in the low 80's I think we've only hit 90 twice so far.
Just past week we ran our AC for the first time and that was more because of the high humidity.
My plants however are loving it!
My baby's breath is as full as it's ever been.
My clematis is just starting to fill in.
I trimmed it way down in early April and I am so glad I did.
It's coming back so much better.
And this spirea plant has grown to rather gigantic proportions.
After it's done blooming I think a little haircut is in order.
Well I just hate to say good-bye to June.
It's always been my favorite month.
I guess that's why it goes so quickly.
And now on to the 4th and the rest of summer.
