Next I got to have this guy for one week. We baked cookies and picked blackberries. Put two puzzles together and a Lego Starwars battleship. We went to the movies, took walks to the school playground. We roasted hot dogs, s'mores and marshmallows. Stayed up late and slept late. And I made him this while he was here.
This one is still too young to vacation at grandma's, but we still had fun playing in the sprinklers. Maybe next summer he'll be ready to spend a few days...
Somehow I also managed to added these to my list of books I've read this summer, but I have the sneaky feeling I am forgetting one...
- The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
- The Thong Also Rises, Jennifer Leo
- Sand in My Bra, Jennifer Leo
- Home Town Tales, Philip Gulley
Last, but not least; yesterday I drug this out of the garage, washed it off, filled up the tires and went for a bike ride. Hopefully it was only the first of many.
This is a picture of me (and the fam) when the bike was new. That was 19 years ago!
This was me after my ride yesterday! Whew, am I ever out of shape!
Oh! One more thing. I saw this Pay it Forward on Vintage Pleasure. It sounded like so much fun I that decided to do it here. Here's the deal:
I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week… LOL… but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
