Birthdays and Family Time

We spent some time with some of our grandchildren last Saturday which made us miss those that live far away even more.   We watched four of the boys while their parents were at a youth group picnic.  It was a nice day so we took the little plastic pool out and filled it before the boys arrived.  They spent much of the afternoon getting in and out of the pool.

Joshua spent most of the time crawling in and out of the house.

Noah and Landon are testing out the water.

Landon tried hard to splash me with the water.

Noah is off to find my watering cans so that he can water the garden and maybe water his cousins a little too.

Caleb thought it would be fun to use Papa's garden gloves as shoes.  Shh, don't tell him.

Baby Matthew is not sure what the older boys are up to.

We celebrated two birthdays, Pat's and our youngest son David's. 
 David is actually 24 years old today, Happy Birthday David.
We enjoyed the pleasant sunny weekend and it looks like this one will be the same.  We expect to have a quiet weekend and hope to get our front deck stained.  Sounds like fun huh.


  1. Pure joy! Treasure these times my friend. xoxox

  2. Weather does look beautiful. I'm guessing all those boys together keep you on your toes. :) Congrats on getting your August blocks done. Take care! Best wishes, Tammy

  3. Wonderful! Your grandkids are so blessed. You are giving your grandkids such wonderful memories. 24 already! Where do the years go? Thanks for sharing.
