Rain, Rain Go Away....

We are exhausting our indoor activities these days!  We haven't been able to plant our vegetable garden or our flower pots yet.  It's rained and rained and rained!   Mom and Dad are visiting - and they're missing 80 degree sunny days back in Indianapolis.  What a bizarre twist.  Thank goodness Grammy is like Mary Poppins and always has a few tricks in her bag:
 Grammy playing her new Autoharp with the kids.  They sounded pretty good actually!
 Crazy Eights with Daddy
 A new puzzle with Grammy.
 And Opa introduced Jak to golf.  I wish I had a video of Jak cheering, "Get it in the hole!".
The grass is wet and heavy but it needs to be mowed in between rain showers.  It was 18 inches tall in some spots!
 This picture is a little blurry but sweet none-the-less.  When Lillian saw what Grammy was wearing for the day, she ran upstairs to change so they could match.
 Grammy bought Jak a new book about Bailey the dog - only in this book Bailey discovers dinosaurs at the Nature & Science museum just like Jak has recently.
 Another blurry but good picture.  The kids are enjoying the old classic, "Singing in the Rain" lately.  We decided to run out and play in the rain just like Gene Kelly!

 Kim and Ian hosted the whole crew again for a night, when Pete was in town from Wyoming.
 As you can see, the kids enjoyed a break from the rain and loved playing outside.

 Opa snuck in some good hugs and silly time!
The next morning, we half heartily participated in the Stapleton Garage Sale.  We sold a bunch of little dollar items and Casey and Rob unloaded some bigger stuff. Again, the kids just had fun being together!
