Sunday Morning

The kitchen table was the scene for a big breakfast this morning, with eggs, sausage, hash browns and blueberry coffee cake.  There's not much left of the coffee cake.

That has been cleared away and the table in now the staging area for preparing to go to a 1:00 Sounders match back at the stadium.
No rain ponchos this time!  Now we're packing sun glasses, visors and sun screen.
Everybody's getting geared up, including face tattoos.

Also going on is collecting.  Items that were scattered all over the house are being corralled into a packing center.  Today is the last day of their three week stay for Jill and the kids.  They leave early tomorrow morning on a flight back to Denver.

Since Thursday we've been busy as usual.  On Friday Isaac got his free haircut, thanks to Super cuts and the fact that the Sounders scored three or more goals in the last match.
 Irene baked strawberry short cake in the play house
and then served it out in a brief sun break.  Isaac, called from playing in the house, expected real food.  So I compensated with a few cookies I had in the freezer.
We also used the light house cookie cutter we bought at Cape Meares to make light house cookies.  They are tasty and tempting, sitting on the kitchen counter.  We have about half left. What's left when the kids leave will go into the freezer to await their return visit in just less than a month!
And now it's time for me to gear up and spend a few more minutes in the play house before we head to the train.


  1. Sounds like a very successful visit. If it were me I'd be planning to sleep for the next few days.

  2. Both of your grandchildren have beautiful, thick hair. The three weeks of their visit have gone quickly even for us readers!

  3. A great post Linda, it was fun seeing everyone, especially your grandchildren enjoying themselves. Love their football gear photo.

  4. What a fun day! That was my kind of breakfast. That blueberry coffee cake has my mouth watering.

    You're so lucky you get to see Jill and her family so often. How sad to see them go tomorrow though.

  5. you are a non stop entertainment center-looks like lots of fun

  6. These posts communicate your love for those kids, and theirs for you. You are all so fortunate to have these days together, and wasn't yesterday (Sunday) a wonderful weather day???

  7. It's a pity your grandkids don't live nearby in Seattle. But, I suppose you could see each other daily via Skype -- the way Kay keeps in touch with KC.

  8. they're such beautiful children :)

    I love the outdoor picnic shot

  9. And I can understand why there was not much blueberry coffeecake left!
