Lilli and Violet visited us in Arlington July 19 – 26. Lilli had a business conference here. Every morning Violet took swimming lessons and every evening she explored the neighborhood with her granddad. She learned to play “I Dropped My Dolly in the Dirt” on the piano. She and I visited two old friends, two playgrounds, and the Museum of Natural History. On Friday we joined the Kerfoots for a picnic and a Celtic Music Concert at the Air Force Memorial near the Pentagon. Here are photos that show what fun we had. Not pictured, but a dear memory, is of her asking one morning what dew is, then drinking it from the hydrangea leaves in the garden.
