Earlier this month we went to my daughter's for a belated birthday celebration for her 5 year old. It was a little cool, but I managed to find a spot of sun to perch in. We had such a nice visit. Mark is a people person and brings out the best in my hubby. They live over 100 miles away from us so we don't see each other very often. Amy and Mark have 3 wonderful children who are involved in baseball, dance, tae kwon do, swimming, etc...so they are busy.
This is the view from their deck, just part of the back yard.
Chalk paint and potions are a favorite activity
This beautiful girl turned 5 in May.
These 2 get along so good. The 2 older boys are more closely matched in interests so they hung abound together. It was so nice.....the kids are old enough that they don't need watching and can explore the woods and river.
I brought corn on the cob and pumpkin roll....both were a hit for all. Amy made brats, hamburgers, angel food cake, and a delicious spinach salad.
As we were sitting on the deck catching up an oriole sat in the tree and 'hollered' at us to leave so he could get to the grape jelly that was on the rail. We also watched a squirrel actually grab 2 smaller squirrels out of a hole in the tree and toss them to the ground. We decided they must have been teenagers and dad said 'get out and get a job!'
Roasting marshmallows for s'mores.
My oldest and only teen age grandson. He's a great kid!!! Well, all of my grandchildren are wonderful.
The girls have such pretty, long hair. The youngest one's is curlier though. When the oldest one gets hers cut it is for Locks of Love.
