Granny and Nana came to visit the weekend before Holly's birthday. While they were here they helped Joel finish up "Holly's Park"They had to haul fifty 40lb bags of Mulch into the bag yard and lay it out. It was a lot of work.One of the nights granny made Birthday BrowniesHolly had more fun however eating the frostingShe also liked pouring out all of the various sprinklesThen she just ate the sprinkles and frosting....But it's her birthday so she is allowed. The following week, Mommy ate the brownies.Here is Nana playing Accordion on Daddy's iPadEveryone played some music, Holly helped Daddy with the GuitarShe loves playing music and is learning about guitar in her new music class.To top off the night Granny gave her a bath and she got to play with her new water flutes, an early birthday gift.
