Granddaughters post

We're here to stay at grandma's and granddad's for 3 days. This is our first blog post.

Crazy hats for the BBQ!

Granddad cooking the cheese burgers

Our finished skirts and Eleanor's t-shirt

Picking the juicy raspberries for the raspberry jelly 
We made our skirts by sewing together long strips of fabric together with normal stitch and zig zag stitch. Grandma was very happy with using up some of her fabric stash.
The BBQ was very yummy and well cooked.
