This last weekend, we went to Grandma and Poppa's house so that my husband could help his father out with some farming and cattle work. This meant that the kids saw very little of Grandma and nothing of Poppa. 'Tis the way of farming, I suppose - especially during the busy haying season.
So we amused ourselves in other ways.
The trampoline figured prominently. For jumping on...
and for having tea parties under.
We found innovative ways to keep cool.
And then, in the evening, we came inside to play. When we used our bird book to look up some hawks that we'd seen, Hannah's cousin Zee was bitten by the birding bug. She didn't put the book down for an hour.
We pulled out an UNO deck, removed all but the number cards and had a rousing game.
Trust me. It was rousing.
Giggler Extraordinaire, that girl. And sharp as a tack, too. She beat all of us.
