A family gathering had been planned to welcome home our daughter and son-in-law from their three months sojourn in Europe. We arrived at our other daughter and son-in-law's home to find the table set under the dappled shade of a maple tree.
Our eight year-old granddaughter had made place cards for each guest, with appropriate embellishments.

Ah, modern technology. The iPad is such an improvement on the mid 20th century slide show.
A perfect day.
