Summertime conjures up lazy days and happy times. Our younger grands came to visit this week. I always ask them prior to their visit what they would like to do. Number one was playing games.
Iced cold watermelon tastes especially good while playing games in the back yard.
They also stay with the process from start to finish. I can remember them telling me in the past "to just finish up for us Boo."
Number three request was to go to the park. We have a great one nearby that is next to the river.
The boys loved throwing rocks in the water.
It was a beautiful day with clear skies and low humidity. This is a gift for us in the summer.
There are trails that are nice to take, but today the mosquitoes chased us away.
We noticed a new game that the guys wanted to play. I'll call it soccer pool--A very clever slant on pool using soccer balls.
We squeezed a lot into our three days together. So much fun, but now I need a nap.
The mimosa trees have been so lovely this year. As we were leaving the park, I had to take a picture of this one. They smell amazing. You either love mimosa or you hate it. Some folks refer to it as a noxious weed. I must admit to removing a few from our gardens. Do you have mimosa in your area? Do you like it or not?
