Happy Spring, yall! Hope it came and stayed at your home. Here, spring is bouncing all over the place - warm for a few days, then cold again.
This week is spring break for the schools here as well as the schools in Marietta, GA, where my youngest daughter and her family live. Saturday, she and the girls arrived for three days of fun.
My daughter here took the week off to spend with her son, so they joined in the family fun. Even Lo came home from college on Saturday to see her aunt and cousins.
After supper on Saturday, this Nonnie loaded up the granddarlings for a trip to Jack Frost Dairy Bar. No trip to Marion this time of year would be complete without experiencing the sweet delights of this family business!
We ate lunch at Fatz on Sunday; afterwards I took a picture of the four grands. Not sure what's going on with my camera, but I was very disappointed in the picture. (I experienced the same disappointment when photographing them yesterday, though the butterfly pics turned out okay. Could it be the photographer?)!

I stayed home to clean, but instead spent a couple of hours playing with the newly born (?) Swallowtail butterfly Mo found. He put it on the lawn and it crawled up on a branch that was on the concrete driveway. I moved the branch to the deck table to more easily photography it. Whenever the branch moved, the butterfly would spread its wings, then settle down. After about 3-1/2 hours, the butterfly flew away; thankfully I didn't have to rustle it up any grub!
The house is now quiet, with only the echos of sweet voices and memories of a fun-filled few days! Speaking of sweet memories, I forgot to tell you about the rocky start of our visit. NO ONE could connect to my wireless router. A visit without electronics would not be acceptable, so my daughter set out to rectify the situation. An hour or so later after doing this and that to the PC, connection still wasn't made. Finally, the phones connected...then eventually the iPad. Horrible weekend averted! This child of mine used to visit to sleep; now she visits to sleep and connect with the outside world! Is there a 12-step program for this?!
I leave you with one more picture - a sign of the times.
Oh, here's one more:
