Special Day Is A Grandkids Day
Yesterday we had a wonderful day with family at their house! Grand daughter wanted to do "Arts and Crafts"...I pulled out my bag of acrylics and canvases and they got right to work. GD is wearing a garage sale find hat that fit her perfectly! Cute! They had already been artfully decorating themselves before we arrived as this sweet leg shows: 32 tattoos and pink toe nail polish! This is my Grand daughters painting. Look how proud my grand son is of his painting! He did two! Mom is asking kids questions geared for kindergartners on a set of "Brain Teaser Cards" (another garage sale find btw)...she said they needed the one for first graders as these questions were too easy for them!!! They start kindergarten in September. ;~) Grandpa enjoyed sharing a big pop up book of dinosaurs with the kids, who delighted in pretending to be frightened when they popped up off the pages. Lest you think we just sat around all day, you can see Grandpa and Grandson shooting hoops! My daughter looking out her kitchen window as she and husband prepare a most delicious dinner of barbecued lamb, salad, fresh corn on the cob for us! And finally we finished up with this beautiful pie that my son in law and grandson made together earlier in the day! It was out of this world good, and YES, I had a tiny slice.
