Rewind #3: Sullivan's visit, part 3

(I'm leaving these to post automatically while we're at our dacha. I also added a photo in down below here.)

We got to celebrate Roz's birthday a few days early with a simple little surprise.

Raia gave Aunt Roz a wilted peony that she had found.

This isn't a great photo, but it's something really cute that Asya often does. She loves to give "massages." She'll come up to someone, say, "'саж" (массаж) and then gently squeeze their shoulders for a few seconds. I say that if she'd just learn to do it for a few minutes longer, it would be heavenly!

Later, Aunt Roz bought special straws that flavor milk as a treat!

And then, sadly, they had to leave:

Next up, as I go back over recent events, is Stephen's visit!

When I first saw the first picture, I thought that it was a real cake! But the actual cake was cool too-where'd you find firecracker candles? :-)

Hi! Great pictures! Almost like being there! I can't wait for one of those "massages"! If I know Will, those sparklers on the cake were his idea!! Love to all!
