A Grand Afternoon

Grandma treated the kids and I to a lovely afternoon at Grand Hotel the other day. It was delightful! We enjoyed the buffet lunch (especially the desert table) and then spent a few hours enjoying the hotel grounds.

Shyness is not something my two suffer from, in fact it is quite the opposite. S and K seem to make friends wherever we are. Today it was Max and his dad - visiting from Lansing, MI.  The three of them had a grand time playing croquet, bocce ball and chasing butterflies.

I probably shouldn't admit to this, but probably the kids' favorite part of the afternoon (after filling their plates with a mountain of deserts) was using Max's bug net to fish coins out of the fountain down in the Tea Garden. The three of them were a hoot to watch. Each penny was a valuable treasure - you would have thought they were gold doubloons as excited as the kids got each time they found one...
