Papa Richard......

Alex was besotted with Richard and Barb Bennett when they visited today. We were so happy that they were able to stop by and spend some time with us while they were in town from Phoenix for a family wedding.
Being Dave's 'other parents', they automatically were lifted into Grandparent-Status by Alex. "Papa Richard" and Barb won her over immediately with their interest in her extensive animal collection.

After playing for a while (see above photo), we went to dinner at Lake Elmo Inn - a quaint little restaurant not too far away. We found a fishtank in the lobby that (I told Alex) holds the 'original Dorothy' (Elmo's goldfish on Sesame Street). She enjoyed wild rice soup and butternut squash ravioli, as well as a lemon sorbet, chocolate-covered strawberry, AND a bite of Papa Richard's strawberry cake. Thanks so much for a wonderful evening, Barb and Richard! We all had a fantastic time!
