“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

Raining and cool with high winds.  The sheets are back on!  Ariana came out to the barn with me and helped with chores.
Daniela would rather stay in the house when it's cold.
Everyone had a shower and we headed out to Wallyworld to get the girls each a swimming suit.
Today is the day we are going to fill up the hot tub.  All the kids love going in it.

After lunch the boys came up and the four of them watched "Annie" and ate popcorn.

After the video, Coop fell asleep and the others played Sequence with Grampa.

By 4pm they were all doing their own thing.
Ariana was entertaining Gary....

Daniela was at the piano....

and Finn was playing with his cars and trucks on my art table.  Kevin picked them up at 4:30 and they are off to an overnight, pizza and chicken fingers.  These kids know how to vacation.


  1. They do know how to vacation. And it must feel a little like vacation to have them around. They are wonderful!

  2. Lori,
    Just love that picture of Coop! I keep thinking about his answer to why he sucks his thumb!
    Didn't he say, "Well, I'm only three!"...Classic!
