We made a last-minute visit to Dad and Mom's place this weekend. We devoured a whole strawberry pie plus a birthday supper of homemade pizzas and brownies by CP (accompanied by the customary treats: salad, olives, potato chips, and ice cream). N helped Grandma and Grandpa pick me a colorful bouquet for the occasion. They also collected eggs, played with lace (draped over N's aloha shirt, they looked more like leis) and played soccer (a.k.a. "básquetbol"). Some car checking, window washing, singing, and plenty of conversation found its way into the short weekend.
