When little girls stay at Granny's....

you ride around in the swim wagon with Papa Danny.

you test the water to make sure it is not too cold for your OLD grandparents.
you stand and dream of jumping in before those OLD grandparents are ready.

you finally convince Papa Danny that the water is not too cold.

you try to splash each other as much as possible, cause you know that when she puts the camera down and gets in that you can not splash HER.

you pretend to be a fish.

you giggle and laugh so hard that it echoes down thru the holler for miles.

you go to the worlds largest blackberry patch.

you pick and you eat ALL the blackberries that you want.
you pick all these blackberries in flip flops too.
you chased and caught LOTS of butterflies in Granny's garden.
you helped Granny cook.
you went for ice cream at Tastee-Freeze.
you played with cute puppies.
you milked goats.

you are special enough to be the first to play in Granny Becky's unfinished dollhouse!!
you use your extensive imagination to furnish that dollhouse.

you make Granny and your daddy kiss.......YUCK EMMA!
get your characters in their proper rolls!!

you take the whole family to church!
(I walked in the living room and saw all the dolls lined up on this magazine on the coffee table, she looked up at me and said "Sshhh, they are in church.")

you end your 2 day stay with a romp in the pond in which you allow the whole crowd to come for a swim.
you rub it in greatly to your brother that he only got to stay one night and you got two.

you let your brother rub it in that he gets to stay again this week too!
I think that is a smirk on his face too.
(the other 2 little boys in these pics are not stand in actors, they are real people! They are 2 of the children that Leslie babysits during the week. What a cool babysitter right?)

Looks like fun!!!!!! I have children spread all over the house! Grammie and Poppa Camp!

Leslie said...

She had a great time with Granny! She's outside riding her new bike now. All better after having a little drama last night and having to go to bed as soon as we got home. Man I dread the teen years:( Thanks for letting them stay, they both had a ball!

Nancy M. said...

Y'all look like you have the most fun! I wanna come stay with you too, lol!

Brenda said...

Don't you just love summertime?! And grandkids! I'd love to have a swimming pond like yours. What a wonderful place to cool off and play.

Mel said...

Oh, just look at that pond... As a kid, I used to walk with my brothers and a few friends to swim in a local farmers pond. Those days were the bestest!

Grandkids are a blessing, we enjoy every moment we have to share time with them.

Wonderful pic's... I may just sit here and daydream over your pond. LOL

Blessings, Mel
