It was my weekend to prepare a meal for "trapeza," the lunch after church service. I made a few quiche & carrot salad.
Our friends came from Missouri to visit. It was their first time in an Orthodox church. Samuel (who is 7) did a great job, he venerated the icons, lit a candle, stood for most of the service, was quiet, wanted to cross himself when we did...and made friends with the other children after church! They played baseball in the backyard.
Me watching Lusy play with Daniel. Lusy's previous owners came over to visit her, they still haven't sold their house. See our sunflowers? They're HUGE, the tallest one is 10 feet!
Later, we celebrated my niece's 3rd birthday. We brought a cooler full of (over 50) waterballoons. Believe me, I'm a pro at filling and tying them up! They were a lot of fun and we cleaned up all the bits and pieces quickly!
Juliana loved the castle cake my sister made!
