Fireflies, legos and other fun things

 Our girlies stayed overnight this weekend.  We picked them up after supper on Friday and came back to our house. 
As we were driving, for some reason the girls were talking about bleeding.  Ruby asked if I ever got blood on my clothes and I said yes, every once in a while.  Then she asked if it ever got on my skin and I said sometimes.  Then Alaina piped up - "Gues that's just nurse life, right Grandma?"  We had to laugh at that!
We stopped for ice cream at Dairy Queen which tasted good because it was so hot out.
We watched a kids version of Pilgrims Progress which was pretty good.  It was about 9:30 and we were going to get them into bed, when Ruby saw a firefly outside the window.

So, we went out on the porch for a while and watched the show.  There were quite of few of them, along with crickets chirping and frogs croaking.
They went to bed about 10 and we never heard a peep from them.



They love Lego's and spent a lot of time on Saturday working on a house.
We also did a fun craft that I will share with you tomorrow.
Shortly before noon, we packed up and made a drive to Heather and Andrews house.



Of course, they were thrilled to see Cassie.




And she was happy to see them!




Then we went to my Dad and stepmoms and had McDonalds with them.  Great Grandma slipped them a cookie too.
When we got in the car, Ruby said - Grandma makes the best cookies in the world!  Alaina replied - You take a bite and they melt in your mouth!  I had to call and tell her abou those rave reviews.

Then it was back home for them.  They were happy to be home because their neighbors with a pool are on vacation and told them to come swim, so they were planning a weekend of swimming.  Fun times!

I adore these photos, Mari. It is heartwarming that they visit with your dad and step mom and so cute that they raved about her cookies! I always look forward to the craft projects you work on, Cassie is growing and changing. They all just light up when they are together. I hope you have a good week. Mildred

Seeing blood was always a hard view for me. I remember saying,that medical profession (doctor or nurse)won't suit me. It would be interesting to know whether the girls would like to walk in their grandmother's footsteps and become nurses.

Delightful weekend all round.

And I'm sure Grandmom was happy, with the glowing review of her cookies.

Watching fireflies and listening to the night 'singers'.... Perfect way to get ready to sleep.

You have the sweetest granddaughters, and they are so lucky to have such wonderful grandparents. I love that you went out to sit in the dark with them to watch the fireflies and listen to the crickets. Times they will never forget.

"Guess that's just nurse life, right Grandma?" How sweet :) It's interesting to just be still and listen to children talk among themselves.

Love this post! Oh through the eyes of kiddos, huh? The endless summer days of fun and fireflies. I just loved imagining it all, the sounds of the frogs and crickets and watching fireflies glow...does it get to be a better summer night than that? And love the nurse comment! Lol They are so precious. 💗

Kim said...

Adorable, all three of them...and Legos are the best. I miss those days.

Jean said...

What a great time! I haven't commented for a while, but I do read your blog each morning via email. Aren't grandchildren the best thing ever???

Someday those three girls are going to look back on their childhood and realize how idyllic it was ... and how fortunate they are. That picture of the girls on the darkened porch looking out at fireflies with their grandpa on a summer night is pure perfection. xoxo
