Activities Close to Home

Thunderstorms happen; it's Summer in Iowa.  One of the things my SIL K misses since moving out to the Pacific Northwest is the Midwest Thunderstorm.  I'm happy to report that she got to experience a few during her stay - K, you're welcome ;)

Given the sometimes-iffy-weather, some of our time last week was spent closer to home. The minions and cousins played in the sand, bags were thrown, bubbles were blown, a party was held, lounging commenced, and new toys were brought out. The minions wanted to help Grandpa H make new toys for Z and H so they set out a few months ago with the cutting and sanding. Little man was helping to make a plane for Z and little miss was helping to make a pull-behind toy for H. Little man loved the plane so much my FIL made another for him in secret :)

The joint birthday party was held earlier in the week and the bubbles were the big hit!

You're never too old for bubbles...

Grandpa H even got his first smooch from H after a little bean bribe... ;)

Love the one of H and Dad. Glad you caught that because I missed it over and over (well, I would have gotten it the second time if Z hadn't raced in for another handful of beans).
