Can you believe that August is already here? As usual, I'm going to share what I did on the first day of this month. Usually I seem to be working on the 1st, but this one fell on my weekend off, and we had Alaina here. So - lots of pictures of her, and the fun day we had!
We got up and had breakfast - then went outside to play!
9am: Alaina and Grandpa are good buddies!
Sometimes she rides the 2 wheeler, sometimes the trike. She can really get that trike moving!
She brought out the little wheelbarrow. "Come on Grandpa - let's pick up sticks!"
10am: Mid morning snack time. She was wearing her new minion goggles, drinking from her minion cup!
10:30am: Time to help Grandma with some baking. She always tells me "I can do that Grandma!"
11:30am: Fooling around with Grandpa.
12pm: It's lunch time! A hot dog, blueberries and milk. She was happy.
12:30pm: After lunch there was time to play with water guns. Somehow Grandma was the only one who got wet...
Helping grandpa with paving blocks for a new walkway.
1:30 pm: Then helping Grandma with laundry. She loves to help!
2:pm After finishing the laundry we drove to my Dad's house. I get his medications set up for him because he takes so many. He and my stepmom always like it when Alaina comes along. It was such a pretty day, I stopped along the way to take this picture of the pretty blue sky.
Great-grandma gave Alaina a sucker and she's showing Great-grandpa her blue tongue.
While I worked on pills and taking my Dad's blood pressure, Alaina and great -grandma went for a walk. Here they are checking out the grapes. (I was taking pictures through the slider door)
Then they looked at some apples which had fallen off the tree.
Don't they look cute together?
3:15pm When we got done there we made a stop at Target. Alaina wanted to sit on one of these big red globes that are outside the entrance. You can see it was really windy!
4pm: After all that activity it was time to go home, where Ruby was just waking up from a nap.
4:30 pm: waving good bye to me.
I stopped for a few groceries on my way home and then went all out for supper - frozen pizza!
8:40pm: Such a nice relaxing evening; Bob's enjoying a movie and some ice cream, and I'm on the computer. After a crazy, busy week, it was perfect.
Hope you all had a nice start to the month too.
