Sunday fun!


Late Saturday evening I got my new alphalfa seeds in a jar and began the process of sprouting. They will be ready in a week.

We had the grandkids today and they have ended up spending the night. Donovan and I collected leaves from the backyard, and did some leaf rubbings. They turned out kinda neat, I think! This is the best summertime activity...quickly go out in the scalding heat, gather a few leaves as quickly as humanly possible, and run back in to the air conditioned table with your nice cold iced tea to do some artwork! Make this part last as long as possible!! LOL.



Here are the two sweet sugar pies, Donovan and Emily, playing in the shade of the back yard later in the day.


After we played Toy Story Operation, bounced on the bed and couch, watched videos, etc, we all went up to Arby's for dinner and then went to Walmart to have a look around. Donovan got a new Star Wars backpack! Nothing like being stylin on your first day of Kindergarten!!!

Oh Julie, You are so good to and with your grandchildren.... You should make some t-shirts out of the leaf rubbings... That would be pretty....

Glad you had a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wow that Emily is turning into a little lady!
She will break a lot of hearts later ;)

Have a nice day Julie!

They are the cutest grandkids ever! I bet you just want to eat them up with kisses. And the leaf art is so pretty. What a great idea for a hot day!

Echoing Cindy - you are a fun grandma!

I'm sitting here looking at the leaf prints... which are really quite wonderful, wondering if there would be some way to combine that with the gelatin prints that you made in an earlier posts...

anyway, looks like a fun summer project with the grands...

I envy you for your easy access to your grandbabies.

I saw several cool succulents on my trip out west and thought of you.

Oh, Julie....I luv reading about your fun with Donovan and Emily and seeing the photos is the best.

The leaf rubbings are great...really pretty.

One of the things I love about my Coo Coo Kid is that he keeps me doing things that I might not ordinarily do....like have fun!

Thanks for visiting my blog after my time away. Nice of you.

The leaf prints are wonderful. You're right about the air conditioning! The only time Micah wants to go outside now is if he can get in some water. Did you really bounce on the couch and the bed with the grands? Good for you! I see a trampoline on that St. Augustine grass sometime in the near future...

What fun and those two cuties are so precious!!!

In regards to jumping on the couch (Yes, Emily does this), and jumping on the bed, is actually a mattress on the floor, that we nap on and jump on! Well, they do, at least! The most I have done is play Ring Around the Rosie a few times where we all fall down! Oh, yes, and Donovan jumps on the couch from a sitting position while playing video games! He cannot sit still and play games at the same time!!!!!

Sorry to be late here Julie.
Wow! I see a lot of changes here in your blog. Love the new arrangement too. The bible verses are great reminder for me to be closer to God.

Your selected cactus photos are so appealing. Each one got their unique character.
Your Emily and Donovan looked so happy. You must have lots of fun doing the creative art together. Y..yes..
