One of the things both girls like to do this time of year is to make necklaces out of the the flower petals from the rhododendrons.
Here they are with the necklaces trying their best to pose naturally. Ha! Ha!
Doesn't Emmy look like she is up to something? I think she is contemplating doing a little jumping.
I didn't get a photo of this but Emma spent quite a bit of time out turning up rocks looking for lizards. Eureka! She found a baby one that had lost part of its tail and was rather cold so not moving much. We put it in a plastic container with some grass and set him in the sun to warm up. I told her that they love sun and soon he would come alive and be less lethargic. I think she had her doubts but sure enough by the time they left he was energetic and quite fast moving. He ended up on her head in the car and her dad had to catch him.
On to a little BBQ on Monday with Jill, Wade, Ayden, Byron, Kelli and Dave's parents. Wade made these giant stuffed burgers. We couldn't even get our mouth around one. Huge double patty with cheese stuffed inside and on top. If I weren't so busy cooking I would have taken a picture. Jill wanted S'mores so Dave and Wade built the fire and the roasting of marshmallow began. That is Jill's arm holding her marshmallow. You know it! She was first in line.
Kelli faking everyone out pretending that she was just holding the baby. But I caught her with a S'more. Nice sneaky face Kells.
Byron on the run into just about anything he could get into. He was down at the chicken coop licking his chops from a sticky S'more.
He was trying to throw rocks and flowers in the pool, getting too close to the water when his parents told me to stay back and running too close to the fire as well. Little busy stinker.
Uh Oh! Looks like a time out....nose pressed up against the house. No the grill is not on....so don't be frightened.
Delpha (or GG for Great Grandma as the kids like to call her) sitting with a little stickiness on her face as well. Hmmmm! Wonder what she was eating.
Back into the house as it wasn't a very warm day. Grandad Max enjoying watching all the antics of Byron.
Sweet doll. Jill took this photo. Isn't it pretty? He is wearing the cap my mom, Grandma Mae, made for him. She made the blanket as well. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
