Last Wednesday all was set for Maddie's operation. But at the very last minute it was cancelled--due to Maddie having a cough. After a long and not always calm (according to Mimi) drive back to Burbank the next day, life went on.
For me, still up in Palo Alto visiting with the Feinsteins, it meant a calm breakfast outside in the sunshine,
a shopping expedition with Lea to find an outfit for Noah's August wedding,
and other outfits as well.
I got to Burbank in time to catch Max in his "apres-le-bain"outfit.
Friday, the start of the Memorial Day weekend, the grand kids ramped up into their weekend activities: butterfly outfits, bike riding and hockey playing.
Maddie, in a quite motherly mood, rode her baby doll around on the back of her bike (a doll Mimi gave her with a hand-made dress that matches one she gave Maddie--nice to have a grandmother that really knows how to sew).
A surprise for me: that reluctant artichoke plant in the garden finally growing up and blooming!
