Here are a few photos that I took as we built and planted a new flower   bed at Mom and Dads. Talk about getting your hands dirty! All winter I wanted to get out and dig in the dirt, so that is what we did! And I still have stains on my hands that will have to wear off, I guess. Can't scrub it off, but it was worth it!
Baby sister got as dirty as I did, but it was worth it to see it all planted and beautiful. Or it will be when the flowers grow a bit and fill it in completely.
When I was leaving town to drive back to my home, I passed this scene with the field of yellow flowers. It was so pretty.
Anyone remember a photo that was very similar to this one, but was taken 28 years ago?  
Throw her in the creek! See how big a splash she makes! No, not really, that wouldn't be nice, but I'll bet she thought he was going to do it!

Grandboys Weekend

The boys (ages 10 and 7) wanted to go turkey hunting with Grandpa, so they each brought a bow and arrow set to 'get a turkey'. Well, as they were more 'toys' than anything real, they were having fun anyway. Grandpa set up a target for them to practice on. They went for a long hike in the woods with Grandpa but no turkey showed itself. All they brought back with them were several ticks. Had to throw all their clothes in the wash machine. But they had fun anyway as the weather was nice on Saturday. Not so much today.
When I asked what was their favorite cookie, they both said Chocolate Chip, so 7 year old and I made cookies. The mixer did most of the mixing but he stirred in the chips and finished the cookies. He did a good job,
he put them on the pans and
taste tested them too! Delicious! He shared them with his brother and Grandpa too!
A fun but lively weekend! These grandparents aren't used to so much activity and constant chatter! But we would do it again, just not every day!!
