Sprinklers and Popscicles

Olivia came to play today and we had lots of summer fun. She requested a picnic lunch on the patio. After that we played in the new palm tree sprinkler. It has little tubes on the top that wiggle and spray water everywhere. It was fun and in Olivia's words "a little crazy!"

After running around we had to cool off with a freezey pop (or two)!

Good summer fun for Grammy and her favorite 2 year old!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my sweet hubby...a wonderful father and husband! And to my dad--you're the best! Mom and dad came to celebrate the day with us and it has been a good one. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of mom and dad :o( but here are some from the rest of the day.

Olivia was very excited to have Grandpa Andy open his Father's Day gift

He was VERY excited to receive an Ernie Banks replica jersey

Grandpa's favorite little girls

Both dads :o)

Ella is getting so big...lots and lots of smiles and giggles

Of course Olivia had to take some pictures too. She handed me her book and puppy and directed Grandpa to get in the picture with me. We were told to say "cheese" but apparently that wasn't enough, as she kept telling us "laugh at me over here"...that was an easy command to follow :o)

We just finished having a nice conversation with Melissa on the phone and are getting ready to head to the park for the muni band concert. The perfect end to a special day! Hope yours was special too!

Family Fun!

I took today off work to spend a fun day with my family! Both my sisters came for a visit along with 3 handsome nephews, 1 niece, 1 super cute great niece, 2 great grandparents, my son and his wife and of course my adorable granddaughters. We had a WONDERFUL day. After lunch we went to the park for a little while. It was the perfect day for playing outside.

Watering the Garden

Olivia asks to help us water our flowers every time she is here. Actually she will think up any excuse to get to play in the water indoors or outdoors. Last weekend she was helping water the flowers and decided to help the "little lady" in the rose bed water her flowers.

I thought she looked pretty cute watering along side the fountain...

But I think she looks pretty cute all the time!

She refilled her watering can over and over. Every time she would leave to get a refill from the hose, she would say to the fountain girl: "It's ok little lady...I'll be right back."

I had to include this last shot. Not a great picture, but funny. When she saw I was taking pictures (surprise, surprise) she looked up with her most cheesy grin and said "Cheese gramma...that's a good one!"
