A Surprise Visit

We had a delightful surprise this weekend. At the last minute, our son and his wife decided to come back and visit us for a couple of days on their way home to Texas. So we got to spend some more time with the best grandchildren in the world. What a blessing it was for us to see them twice this summer!
Needless to say I've done nothing for the past couple of days except play with them, so I haven't even looked at my blog, to see who has left a comment or been to visit any of you. I plan to stop by and visit all of you dear blogging friends over the next few days. I haven't forgotten you!
Decided to have a new banner for the new month. Those cupcakes in the previous one were a little stale! Sunflowers black eyed susans and daisies say "summer" to me.
See you soon.

  2. Hi, Rhondi! LOVE the new, vibrant banner--such delicious colors! Happy Days with your son and DIL visiting! ((HUGS)) Oh, if you get a chance, stop by--I'm having some gift giveaway fun at my place this week! :o)

  3. LOVE your new banner. It is so bright and fresh looking.
    The brownies & strawberries won't get stale if I have anything to say about it.

  4. I love the banner, Rhondi. What a wonderful treat for you to get to spend more time with the grandkids!

  6. I love the new banner. It does say summer in capitol letters!!!! Enjoyed seeing the pics from the home makeover.

  7. Rhondi, I love your new banner. It does speak summer days in the prettiest way.

    I so understand your feelings about your surprise company. We love our children and a visit from them puts me in the happiest frame of mind. The grands are a bonus, too sweet to put in words. I am already thinking of my thankful post. Of course, it involves my grandchildren. Smile!

    I will add your 'Thankful Thurs.' to my side bar.

    Have a wonderful day, Jeanne

  11. No apologies necessary my friend!..."grandchildren" come before anything else!!!! I am so happy you got another visit!....I am spoiled since Andrew, my 4 year old grandson lives with us & has since he was born!...Even though there are days when I would like a bit more "me" time...I thank God everyday to be able to watch him grow right in front of our eyes! & to see what a wonderful mother my daughter has become....enjoy your evening!...heidi Xo

  12. Hi Rhondi
    It sounds like you had a great time with your grandchildren.

    What a great banner- Sunflowers are my absolute favorite flower- they seem like that are smiling. What a gorgeous pitcher _I have blue plates and dishes that have sunflowers that are my everyday ware.
    Thanks for brightening my day..
