It's always nice to see the daylilies bloom and give color to our yard. Spring is always beautiful, but there is a lull in blooms around our place. Our front has the most sun so that's where the daylilies are. Let's look at some of the flowers that cheer our days.
We also had a visitor last week after a rain storm.
My sister's mother-in-law calls the lilies above ditch lilies. Have you heard this? It's true they grow in a lot of ditches in Virginia.
On Father's Day we all celebrated at Kabuto's Japanese Restuarant in Richmond. It is such a fun place to have dinner and the grands love it there. Our son Grady and his Dad are two wonderful fathers of which I'm so proud.

At Kabuto's they cook dinner on a grill in front of you and put on a show while doing it. The boys love to watch the chef catch food on fire. Then they indulge in "catching food" as the chef tosses it their way. It's definitely not what we do at the table at home, but great fun out.
We really miss our daughter and son-in-law especially when there are celebrations. They live in New Hampshire. Our son-in-law Peter is a wonderful father to Samuel and we wished he were here to celebrate with us.
Our daughter swam her first open water swim on Saturday. It was a two mile swim. Peter was her pilot in a kayak. Samuel said they call the person in a kayak the YAKER--Too funny! We're so proud of Noel for reaching this goal!
