As shown in my last post, the rainy weather and warmish temperatures of late have led to a wild and lush explosion of growth in our untamed farm garden. Eek... what to do? Lightbulb moment.. my youngest son's wife Kristi likes to garden and so I asked her if we could hire her to help us get control of this jungle. She agreed, so yesterday she arrived with our youngest grandsons and began to work. We got to spend time with our little guys, so we were all happy. We have an abundance of eggs right now, so grandpa decided to make them scrambled eggs with cheese for lunch. Here he is with Hayden (5) on the left and Caleb (4) on the right. Hayden cracked almost all the eggs into the bowl! 10 eggs, to be exact. Here he is stirring the eggs - Caleb cracked 2 and handed them to grandpa. Grandpa told them what the yolks were - they took turns stirring.Hayden found the shell his mom found and gave to me while at the beach - and remembered that I had played with them by using that shell as a "monocle" and put it on his eye. :-)
Grandpa found a movie on "On Demand" of Xfinity - "BABE" about a little pig in England and here are the boys watching the beginning in our 2 kid chairs. The rocking chair on the right was Dayle's as a little boy and the one on the left was our children's chair we got while living in Louisiana at "Bob's Used Furniture".
Caleb asked me if he could "play" on my iPhone.. I said, ask Grandpa if you can play with his... :-D Here he is playing on Grandpa's phone.
Of course then Hayden wanted it from Caleb, so I had to relinquish my iPhone to him to be fair. I started the game "Angry Birds" for him. Boys and electronics!
After awhile we went outside to check on Kristi's progress and grandpa had to take a load of her weeds and dirt down to the burn pile in the pasture - and gramps took both the boys on the tractor and Caleb steered the whole way and he let Hayden operate the bucket to dump the yard debris. Happy boys.
Kristi did fantastic work, it's never looked so civilized! We hope to get some bark dust on it while it's looking so nice. She's coming again on Saturday.. things are looking up in our garden!!
This afternoon we're heading over to the boy's house and will be attending Hayden's preschool graduation. That should be fun! Thanks for visiting and I hope you're having a super duper week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
