Full House

It's going to be a great weekend...Jessi, Liam & Trevor will be arriving this evening and Erin & Charlton tomorrow...I can't wait to see them all! 

As a result, I had a skip in my step as I walked along the river this morning, even the grey sunrise made me happy...
 ...especially when this dolphin decided to feed right in front of me. 

These pretty succulent blooms dot the rivers edge with splashes of color...

Don't know where this tug like floating contraption was headed, but I had to get a picture. 

These are a couple birthday gifts I ordered for the girls (birthday is past but we are celebrating together this weekend) from my talented friend Patti Tappel (Osage Bluff Quilter)...they are her unique quilt charms...the pink cake is for Jessi (her favorite color is pink and it's a birthday cake) and the bumblebee for Erin, who tap danced as a bumblebee when she was a wee one (I can still see her in her costume)I know there's a risk they might see this and spoil the surprise before they get here, but then they can increase their anticipation!  So excited!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

It's alway an event to catch sight of a porpoise -- and a river of beaten silver makes it all the more magical!
