When our grandkids are visiting, my days are non stop. It was a beautiful morning, and before I went out to do chores I wiped out the hot tub and started filling it with water so the kids and I could start using it. WRONG!!!! After a couple of hours, the water kept leaking out....I took off the cover and discovered that the heater had a break in it and the water was coming out faster than I was putting it in. So, I called the service department where I bought it and found out that to replace the heater would be at least $500...and that is if nothing else is wrong. Last year the pool, this year the hot tub. We have not been using it, so I am selling it to someone in the service department and it will be out of here tomorrow night....just not worth it. Now I have two things that I am going to miss terribly. Christina's world has a pool, and this summer I am going to find it.
Connie is still working on her study of pears in watercolors. I am going to have to post her series...they are spectacular.
Sue doing well with her watercolor of the cat and mouse.
Jenny took the four kids to the Strong Museum today. When they got home they all went out to the barn to ride the pony. Pony (Babe's Opal) is 29 years old and has been giving kids rides since she was 3. Jenny was only 11 when she backed her.
I was in the house working on dinner while Ariana and Daniela rode. Did not get out there fast enough to get some shots.
The Pon was duded up for the afternoon.
After a dinner of Philly steak sandwiches, roasted regular and sweet potatoes, coleslaw and dill pickles made by Gary and Randy...the games began. Sequence and Scrabble.
It rained from 5-7pm, and then the sun came out. The sky was dark but the light was great for picture taking.
I'm going to have to name this bird. He's about 4 1/2 feet tall and sits in a garden by our driveway. Got any suggestions?
We are supposed to hit the 70's by the weekend. If that happens, these little umbrella plants will end up being two feet high.
Tonight Daniela beat the pants off her Grampa two times in a row when they were playing....what else...Sequence.
You are to be congratulated if you made it through this post. Patience. I'm reporting on the daily activities so Mommy and Tata will know what their kids are doing.
