Where does the time go?

I can't believe it is the 12th already! DH has had doctor appointments and last weekend we had our 2.5 year old granddaughter. She comes again tomorrow and will be here until Wednesday. That means even less time in my crafting room.

Here is what we did Saturday.

The girl loves her blueberries! We should have weighed her before we entered the field. I watched her eat some berries straight from the vine. Why pick when the berry is in reach of the mouth?

Icey Cream is also a favorite. Papa thought she should be rewarded for her hard work in the berry field. I'm not sure how she had room for it after all the berries she ate.

Then it was a visit to see baby pigs. I missed the shot of her kissing the baby. She loves to get in the pens and chase the pigs. 60 pound pigs do not phase her.

We don't farm anymore, but Great-grandpa still does. He farms our acreage and once in a while DH gets in the tractor. We weren't sure if Daphne would get in. Papa didn't start it until they were inside with the door shut. As they drove down the road, Daphne kept saying, "Papa, watch out for the cars."

Her mom couldn't believe she stayed in the tractor for 1.5 hours. As they started chopping the straw, Daphne kept an eye on the chopper. As time went on Daphne didn't like it when Papa would try to steer, she thought she was doing a good job even if she wasn't driving in very straight lines!

I don't know what we are going to do this weekend when she comes to visit.
