A Kaleidoscope Day

Jim and Monique brought the kids for the night Friday night and spent most of Saturday with us.  Our day was full of sun (the first in a long time!) and color and fun.

Rainbow cornbread batter.

Rainbow cornbread ready to go in the oven.

Charis: "Is this bad for me, Mimi?"
Mimi:  "No, it's whole grain cornbread with no sugar so it's good for you."

Charis (thoughtfully):  "It looks like it would be bad for me."  Wow!  I wish more adults thought like this four-year old!

 Pink helmet and blue sky.

On top of the fence, on top of the world!  (Thanks for these two photos, Kara!)

Didi, Kol and Julie all dressed in blue--with a pink helmet to match Mimi's shirt.

Colorful sandbox toys in a row inspected by fluffy white Misty.

Mimi's face turns white!
Rosy cheeks.

  1. that looks so fun! Your grandkids will have wonderful memories of weekends with you!

    1. Thanks, Tessa! Hopefully we'll keep on making memories. They spent the night, just the two of them, last night and today. Charis melted our hearts because she cried when it was time to go home! Oh dear, that just wraps Didi and Mimi around her little finger! :)

  2. Sounds and looks like a really special day. Your photos and colors made me think of one of my favorite poems--
    The Swing
    By Robert Louis Stevenson
    How do you like to go up in a swing,
    Up in the air so blue?
    Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
    Ever a child can do!

    Up in the air and over the wall,
    Till I can see so wide,
    Rivers and trees and cattle and all
    Over the countryside—

    Till I look down on the garden green,
    Down on the roof so brown—
    Up in the air I go flying again,
    Up in the air and down!

    I don't think your roof is brown (gray, maybe?) but some of the rest of the poem is true about what the kids would see on your swing! Thanks for letting me join in on your day!

    1. That's one of my favorite poems, too, Barbara! I LOVED swinging--still do when I find one my size! Thanks for joining in our day!
