That's my granddaughter Emolyn and her Pop Pop at Kiwanis Park in Tempe ~
on the picnic of her dreams.
Just the week before, she had expressed to me that one day she would like to go on a picnic "with a real picnic basket and a real blanket and real food". So we did.
And she loved every single second.
And I loved watching her love every single second.
And then as we were leaving, we came upon the most bee-utiful Bottlebrush shrub.
Bee sure to enlarge each image for a better look.
And then my daughter Miranda came over and Emolyn's little sister Elsie came over ~
and they laid out in the backyard and giggled as little girls do.
I sure love my girls!
