How sweet Sunday was. We were able to be with family, especially good for my husband who has not had many days this year without outside obligations. Our daughter and her 4 children were here today, along with our son's oldest daughter, a wonderful surprise! Dear friends brought her here to visit this week. Our first time ever having her here to ourselves and we intend to enjoy our time with her. ( above, our daughter with her youngest daughter)
Long distance picture of granddaughters playing with the doll house. Where is the blond head of our oldest granddaughter?
The grandchildren had plotted to make water balloons and bomb Poppa with them,but big squirt guns were nice too.
Little 'J' was very happy to get a hold of this big squirt gun , and although he could not actually operate it, I can tell it gave him a sense of being a "big boy".
Hoses worked even better for him though. ( note the change of clothes, there is only so much mud and water a boy can soak himself in before he needs a change of clothes)
Then it was time to row the boat around the island. Finally Little 'J' is big enough to ride in the boat with Poppa. ( The patches of white in the pond are the fluffy seeds of the cottonwood trees. They are so thick around here it appears to be snowing.)After Little 'J' gets his ride around the island in the pond, the rest of the grandchildren get in for a ride. What a sweet, sweet Sunday. Time with our family, good food to eat when we're together. Just hanging out together. Thank-you Lord for this precious gift!
