It was a grill out, eat in kind of Sunday. Not because it was too hot, but because of the bugs! Good grief. The fruit flies are crazy. Also sighted today: daddy-longlegs, mosquitoes, and a ferocious looking wheel bug. So we kept our hamburgers and hot dogs to ourselves (mostly...some of the fruit flies are inside too) and enjoyed an indoor picnic.
|"Let me in. (I think.)"|
Kati read to us about the wheel bug. Ben was right. He is ferocious.
Kristin brought dessert this week: molten lava cakes.
One boy cleaned his plate...thoroughly! "You can just put my plate away," he laughed. We didn't, but we admired his effort to save on dish washing. :)
After dessert...game time!
The littlest grandgirl convinced Papa to play the "Maisey Game" with her. And then again. And then "Guess Who." Again. And again. I must tell you that usually Papa is not much of a game player, but he melted and somehow let Alaine talk him into playing five games!
He was rewarded with some snuggle time after the games. I think it was worth it.
The hardest part of playing games? Trying to keep Aunt Kati from taking your picture. Because why would you want all that cuteness recorded for posterity?
Time for Grandy...
...and the weekly race (a relatively new "tradition") before piling into the van for the drive home.
I have been Gathering the Moments of September. Would you like to join me?
Feel free to "gather" your September moments...a few glimpses or many, with words or not.
I'll have the linky up sometime tomorrow, and it will stay open for about a week.
