What Day Is Today?

This all happened on Sat. Sun. Mon. ......no, it was Sun.
It was a hot  Family Sunday Supper.
This is a picture of trouble about to happen!
Too bad you can't hear all the chatter and giggles.

On a rare summer day Uncle Nate was here.
He'd usually be gone guiding for fish.
But this Sunday he was making memories with all the cousins.

(Check out a small portion of our young orchard, top left.)
(....oh, and I do know how to spell Homesteading,
but was too lazy to correct it :-)

Too bad Uncle Nate forgot his swimsuit :-)

(The neighbors soybeans are just coming
up in the field in the back.)

Bowling Ball Slip 'n Slide was very popular.

Check out the line waiting their turn.

So, anyway....today is Monday right????

.....grandma Jean

These three day weekends do tend to make the rest of the week following hard to figure out . . . let alone making the weekend days a little out of sync! I so envy you your whole passel of grandkiddies!

Jill said...

Wow! That sure looks like fun and Uncle Nate is one fun uncle!

dr momi said...

Tex....you should ave heard it all live :-)

Alli....the kids just keep bugging Nate until he starts rough housing with them -- they just love it.

Tina...."keep your hands and head up" were their instructions. I hope Nate's back was ok the next day :-)

Mama Pea....a passel of grandkids..LOL, I like that.

Jill....Uncle Nate just has a way with the kids :-)

Sandie....Hope you had a good week-end too. (your hubby is still in my prayers)

Mary Ann....the oldest grandson is 6 so you know he's going to remember some of this. It's one of my goals that they remember goods times coming together at grandma's house. :-)

Lois...Nate had just as much fun as the kids :-)

fernvalley01....all the kids must have slept well that night, they had to be tired :-)
