Posting a Letter on a Foggy Morning

With Poppy.

And taking a few pictures...just because we're so cute.

A completely straightforward look.

If not a formal reenactment, at least some of the kids having fun with Poppy's collection of WWII things, finding clothes that fit, trying on various effects and combinations. Poppy got a kick out of the interest taken in his favorite things and much of Saturday afternoon was consumed in this way. We didn't realize how long it had been since the kids had seen any of his vast collection.

Lola thinks she would make a good bugler. She put all her heart and lungs into it! It's trickier than you'd think to get a decent tone out of one of those things, but she managed to get a few blasts.

Leif is marching in the infantry I guess. (A little "gear adrift" but pretty good fit, all things considered.)

Luke was just enjoying organizing and cleaning in the little building that is seldom open which we've dubbed "The Museum".

A Grand Day at the Sea Side

With our eye on the weather app, we carefully chose the only day that was predicted to reach 80* at the coast and headed over with sack lunches, pails and sand shoes! It has been a long time since we have been to the ocean. And the beach is always best with Grandchildren.  

Yes the perfect day! .

Seeing the WWII Planes with Poppy

Half the fun was getting the autographs of the pilots on her poster!
