Samuel Paul

What a lovely Sunday it's turning out to be! I'm getting things together today to go to Becky's for a bar-b-que. Maggie can't wait to go play with big brother Doogs! We're looking forward to having a great time. I've been fortunate to be able to meet a blogger friend in person and I know a number of you have been able to do the same thing, also.Isn't it great?!

A few weeks ago I did a post when my first grandson Redmond had a birthday. I thought I would share pictures today of little brother Samuel who is six years old. His middle name is after my dear nephew Paul whom we lost a few years back just before Samuel was born. My daughter Dory and Paul were very close and grew up together. Strange thing about Samuel. His head is the same shape as Paul's, he sometimes holds his mouth just like Paul did, he has lots of the same characteristics. Such a sweet reminder of my little Pauly.

Samuel and Grandma had a great time. We had gone to Borders and let him pick out a book. He picked out a Cupcake Cookbook complete with the cutest little apron. He had such a good time and then had to call and tell big brother all about baking with Grandma.

I've gotta go get the strawberries ready for shortcake! Have a fabulously wonderful Sunday afternoon!!!

Well it looks like you had a great day with your grandson!

When I let Ruby roam as I garden-she usually tries to "help" by getting right in my way and digging like crazy! Maggie is so cute.
