Birthday Party #3 of 3

My mom and dad were finally able to make it down to visit us and our new home. They are having a sailboat built in England and it was supposed to have already shipped and be in port here in the U.S., so they were trying to wait until it then before they came down. There have been a few glitches with the shipping, so they decided to come on down for a visit. They couldn't wait to see our new house, and more importantly, the only grandchild...Lallie!

They had sent some gifts earlier (yay for clothes!) for Lallie but brought a couple other things with them. One of them being an erector set for toddlers. What a neat idea! If you're interested, I can post more about that later but I can't remember the name of it, it's made by a French company.

Here's Geezer and Grandma helping Lallie put it together (my dad is also an engineer like Husband so they're both really into this type of thing!)

Lallie doesn't really care about putting it together right, she just wants to tinker!

Grandma helping Lallie learn how to use a screwdriver! That is daddy's girl (we just need a pink screwdriver and wrench set instead!) She really got this down pretty quickly.

And, the finished product. Can you tell what it is? It's a penguin. Isn't it cute? Apparently there are two other ways to make it as well!

More later from our visit with Geezer and Grandma!
