Here are a few pics from the past couple of weeks.
|Mama couldn't get their swimsuits on them fast enough|
for some fun in the sprinkler and the hot tub with Grandpa.
And they wouldn't stand still for a pic - Kate is trying to hug Jack here.
|I think I will have a grape popsicle next.|
Pancakes and bacon are the traditional breakfast fare at our house when grandkids are with us. Lots of bacon! And Kate wants to be in the kitchen with me to measure and stir the pancake batter. She is such a helper, bringing her stepstool so she can assist Grandpa in placing the bacon on the griddle. She stirs up the flour and sugar and eggs, etc. for the pancakes. Setting the table is another task she does while the bacon and pancakes are cooking. (And when the bacon is done - it is put away until after the pancakes are eaten because otherwise, breakfast would consist of nothing but bacon for them! ;-))
|Nothing fancy and it does get a little messy here.|
Notice how close those oj glasses are to the edge of the table?
(You might also notice that Jack has considered himself "done"
with that little high chair on the right!)
This was funny to me. The clean-up of spilled oj
seems to be pointing a finger at someone!
|No, no, no. Jack's not behind bars for the little spill!|
|Kate is getting so tall.|
|Jack says anything she can do, he can, too.|
|Grandpa Rocks tee-shirt|

Over the past few years, DH and I have made some new friends, each of whom quickly became old friends. They've been with us through some hardships, and the times of celebration.
The bad news for this particular little group of friends, is that one of the couples - Fred and Alice - moved to Florida three years ago. The good news is that when they come to visit, we just pick right up where we left off and continue on.
In spite of everybody's crazy schedules, the past few weeks have found us getting together for some of the best times because Fred and Alice have been in town. Sweet times of fellowship, and reunion with our little group.
We have so much fun, I kind of keep it pushed to the back of my mind that soon they will have to return to Florida.
|Three dear friends,|
Cindy, Carol and Alice

*Old friends, after all of these years, just old friends,
through laughter and tears,
old friends, what a find, what a priceless treasure, old friends,
like a rare piece of gold,
my old friends, make it great to grow old, old friends,
with all I will hold to old friends.
Now God must have known, there'd be days on our own,
we would lose the will to go on, that's why he sent friends like you along.
Old friends, you've always been there, my old friends,
we've had more than our share, old friends,
we're all millionaires, in old friends.
