Since we have been back from the coast, we have enjoyed some time just to play here at home.
The kids are like me, eat outside whenever you can. We have had dress up picnics and alfresco dinners.
Grampa used Saturday morning cartoons as a chance to get some more shut eye. The playhouse is Irene's favorite. She is definitely the lady of the manor, the Princess of the Realm. Jill's high school friend, April, came for a visit, and her son Jack, who is almost exactly the same age as Isaac, was a fun playmate.
Yesterday the three young ones left to spend an overnight with cousins and then the afternoon with Aunt Jan. They return this evening.
We got some housework done this morning, and another run to the grocery store.
I also had a special commission from Isaac, so I got out the sewing machine. He had a new beach shirt, long sleeved of course, for our Pacific Northwest weather, and he wanted some embellishment. From the embroidery designs I have downloaded, he selected this mallard duck.
Mission accomplished. Now for some down time to rest up. Tomorrow we're off to the zoo.
