My Kids and Fun

Isaac learned to shower last month. He climbs in along with Ellie for moral support, but needs to be properly equipped to deal with the water on his face. He came up with this idea all on his own.
We spent last Saturday at "The Point" with Jess and Tyler. Tyler brought his boat and gave us a spin around the lake. That was so much fun. Reminded me of when I was in my early teens, when I could take the boat out by myself. What a thrill that was for me then. I was not yet old enough to drive, and the feeling of independence, power, and speed was intoxicating.
Little Isaac was anxious to get some fishing in. He and Daddy dug for worms in the garden the day before, so they were well prepared. Isaac and Ellie did very well, baiting their own hooks and reeling in those fishies. We had "miniature crappie" dinner the next day.
Jess and Grey were happy to see each other. They have a strong sibling bond. I've always been grateful for that. Grey wanted this picture with his Jess. I am so proud of them both.
We went to the fair a few weeks ago. The kids have their expectations which include cotton candy (in pink and blue) and a few carnival rides. Mom expects to see the animals. I never get tired of looking at sleeping pigs and the rear ends of cows.
A rainy summer day. I don't know what they would do without each other. I often have deja vu with these two. It's like Jess and Grey all over again. What a blessing to be able to do this twice!
I'll leave with a sweet shot of the newlyweds at the lake. It was great to see them.
