I wrote that title and then had to stop and think if it was really technically summer. Our weather could’ve fooled me lately. Bleh. But I did get away with the kids last week to my mom’s place over the mountains where we were able to catch up on some vitamin D.
She recently got them a play set off Craigslist which has been a huge hit.
They swung and climbed till the sun went down and all day the next day too.
She was telling me how she was ‘too tiny to pump’ and she needs someone to push her.
Yeah, keep workin’ it, girl.
Apparently Grandma buys into that “tiny” business easier than mother does; she got her push.
He goes from spazzing her out one minute (above) to sweetly helping get that shoe back on that little princess foot the next minute (below)…
Oh, and I need to introduce you to our newest family member…
This is Huck.
He is a beast.
Okay, a sleepy beast.
He was the beloved pet of a man at our church who had been rescuing dogs for some time and had many dogs in his own home. When his health took a turn and put him in the hospital for a spell, he had to make the hard decision to rehome his beloved companions. We were honored to take this special guy home, and blessed that he fit right in, and immediately considered our home to be his home, sticking around close and having a protective nature, which we were hoping for. He’s super laid back, but he is getting more and more accustomed to trekking all over the property with the kids, and just having him outside while they are, I know he will sound the alarm if anyone comes near our place.
And, it just so happens, we are a pretty laid back bunch, too.
Is it just me, or is anyone else just getting around to summer activities?
