We were treated to a 4th day of beautiful weather after a long run of rain, snow and sleet - delicious! Our youngest son came to visit and brought our 2 youngest grandsons. The youngest, Caleb, goes.. "wide on twactow gwanpa?" So, of course grandpa got out his riding mower and put one boy on each knee and off they went. The grass is growing and is very green.. Spring is here!Up the hill they went.. and back down.. grandma watching and snapping away with the iPhone. :-) That pile you see is our burn pile which never seems to go away.
The mower wasn't running.. lest you worry.. and the Kubota diesel lawn tractor is pretty quiet. Two wiggly boys on his lap. The house you see is the neighbors..
Don't wun into gwamma!
Looking back towards the farm house.. see our son's VW bus? He just rebuilt the motor and he loves that thing!
Grandpa stopped for a minute and a mutiny ensued.. the 2 year old running thataway and the 3 year old climbing onto the top of the tractor... the dog smelling the earth..
We pulled up some comfortable logs.. (not!) and watched the boys digging in an old mole hill.
Dig dig dig... dirt.. arrrr arrrr.. boys..
Grandma thinks she'll mosey towards the house... son's VW... dawg..
Then I spied these little darling flowers were in bloom.. last year I posted photos of them but did not know the name of them.. one of my dear readers told me they are "Speedwell" or "Veronica". Tiny orchid-like flowers.
We chopped up the leftovers of our last roast beef, potatoes and carrots and made beef stew for all of us. Hayden has begun to help with the cooking, so here he is with grandpa "helping".
We ran up to the Grange for a bit and I stayed in the VW bus with the boys while the guys went in.. and sang songs to the boys while we waited. I asked them for the "cute face". :-)We then sat in the sun on the deck and visited while the boys ran about enjoying the woods and the fields... and I noticed that our first Trilliums were in bloom! I sent my son up with my phone to grab some photos. Do you have Trilliums where you live?
Hubby went back up and got this photo, too.
And then the clouds gathered in and it got cold... and the boys headed home. Now, hubby can't find his wallet that we took on our errand and he's been looking *ALL* over the house, in and out and up and down and in the fridge.. poor guy. Wish him luck that he finds it. Have a great week and thanks for visiting!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-) (ETA: Grampa found his wallet.. on the seat of the tractor, in the barn. LOL!)
