My son brought his family over to our house today, and what a fun day it turned out to be! Owen found a caterpillar in the yard. He was in little boy heaven:
Amelia spent much of the day refusing to have her picture taken. “No, Ganny” . End of story!
Michael spent much of the day outside, poking sticks in the fire ant hills and watching them race around. I’m glad he wasn’t bitten by any of them. Late in the afternoon, Seth and Sarah took the two little kids back to the motel for a nap, and Michael, Fabgrandpa and I headed over to my mother’s for a little visit. We met up with the rest of the family for dinner at Cracker Barrell. (I had grilled catfish, mashed potatoes, turnip greens, and pinto beans.)
Owen sat on the other side of me. He has been very social and talkative during this visit. I was saying to him “Give me just on little kiss” and he was laughing:
Emily and Spencer were at the other end of the table:
Michael is such a good big brother! He helped Amelia play checkers with Owen after dinner.
We took lots of pictures outside on the sidewalk in front of Cracker Barrell. This is my daughter-in-law, Sarah; me; my daughter Becky, and my daughter Emily.
And here is one of the guys:
And here I am with my oldest grandson, Michael. When did he get so grown up?
It was soon time for us all to go home and get some rest. Amelia was conking out pretty quick:
Tomorrow, the kids and grandkids are going to the park for a picnic. Granny and Poppa are staying home, since it is hot as blazes here already. It was almost 90 degrees here today! I can not believe it is that hot already in April! We’ll all meet up at my mother’s tomorrow night for dinner.
