SUMMER FUN AT PAPPA'S HOUSE



A couple weekends back, Ollie and I got to "steal" two of his Grandbabies for the weekend. It was such a wonderful time.

They swam in the river and we roasted hotdogs and made some S'mores...Two days of absolute FUN!

Kailey is striking a pose for the camera.



Here's Maggie. Isn't she cool? Why must kids play with your sunglasses?



Ollie, Maggie and Kailey roasting hotdogs.



Here's a pick of Ollie. You can't tell it, but he's roasting a hotdog. He was "wise" enough to use hickory wood for the fire, so it was so HOT you could barely stand it. He's laughing at himself for trying to roast the hotdog with his eyes closed to the heat.



Oh, you ever get the feeling that someone/thing is watching you? Well, it is at Ollie's. This is our "Deer" in the yard. He keeps a watch over us.

Wonderful photos - and to think you can almost re-live all those great moments just looking at them afterwards! I love the deer in your yard - now that is the kind I need at the lake house. Those won't eat every bush/flower/green thing you plant! And hey, loved your lillies too!
