Our son Travis and his family came out to the farm yesterday to spend the afternoon and evening with us and his wife Kristi even brought dinner! The boys decided that the chicken yard that grandpa was working on was the perfect "jungle gym"! They scaled the 6 foot fence back and forth, even though there is an open gate door. LOL!Dayle has built a cover over their run to keep them dry during the rainy season.. meaning "most of the year". :-)
Travis BBQed steaks for us and Kristi had made homemade potato salad with bacon in it, and brought baked beans and chocolate pudding for dessert. The boys dangled their feet in the pond... Hayden's face is a bit dirty, eh? :-)
Of course they couldn't just stop at dangling their feet.. pretty soon they were wading...Then climbing around to the waterfall...
I grew up watching Tarzan of the jungle.. these two remind me of little forest imps..
OK.. into the old clawfoot tub... time to wash up and get warm!
Grandpa sits and watches them have fun splashing.. I've never shown you our old-time bathroom, have I? We have the old wall hung "water closet" with a pull handle.
This morning the TV news broke into our Young and Restless soap and showed the landing of Air Force One and President Barack Obama jaunting down the steps to do a campaign fundraising luncheon here in Portland, Oregon. That is one beautiful airplane! I took this photo with my camera of the TV news! :-)
I did get my new computer today but am having technical difficulties transferring all my data and applications over. ARGH! So, I see a trip to my Mac store tomorrow.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
