The Sunday Salon: Reading a Stack of Picture Books and Traveling Again!

 





What a wonderful time we had at a party celebrating the high school graduation of our granddaughter, Bailey, last weekend! She is the valedictorian of her class and she will be officially graduating on Tuesday night. So happy for this sweet girl!

We also managed to squeeze in visits with my Aunt Karen and Uncle Steve, my Uncle Gene and Aunt Joan, my brother and his wife, and our son.

We are worn out from all the wonderful visiting!






I read a stack of picture books last week. 
Some were fiction picture books and some were nonfiction picture books.

The Year I Learned to Fly by Jacqueline Woodson
Where is Bina Bear? by Mike Curato
The Treasure Box by Dave Keane

Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:





Since April, we have been (1) to France for a month, (2) to East Texas for our granddaughter's kindergarten graduation, and (3) to North Texas for our granddaughter's high school graduation party. We are going (4) back to North Texas for our granddaughter's high school graduation this week. I will be going (5) back to North Texas for a baby shower in two weeks, and then my husband and I will be (6) flying to Montana for a week in June for a rock dig. 

Whew!







Good Thing #1

It was quite the adventure, going out to eat with my dad and his wife and my aunt and uncle, 
all of whom are in their 90s, while we visited in Ft. Worth.
We so enjoyed our time with them.



Good Thing #2

A family-owned grocery/hardware/feed store in my town celebrated its 100th anniversary
by having a fabulous mural painted on the side of the building
and a big party.



Good Thing #3

A pear.
I've never tasted a pear that melted in my mouth like this one.

Sometimes it's the little things...





I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 


Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do?
