These are a Few of Our Favorite Things...Days 6-7

The amount of time that has elapsed since last I posted is uncool and just down right rude.  Sorry.  Life happens.  And life is full.

To finish up our trip south, I wanted to share a few of our favorite things at Nana and Popaw's.

1.  Geraniums.
I have countless pics of TBird and Nana's geraniums.  Ever since Nana taught her how to "dead-head", she has taken it on as her sole and primary duty.  They usually end up in a bridal bouquet for a wedding between TB and Nana...or Rivers...or Baxter.  Whoever is available.

2.  Sharing smoothies with Popaw.
And Popaw cereal.  My monkeys LOVE Popaw cereal.  We don't eat cereal at our house.  Come to think of it, I don't even think Popaw eats cereal at his house anymore either.  But the monkeys expect it at Nana and Popaw's.  So the monkeys get it.

3.  Swimming at Shocco's pool.

'Nough said.  That's a hand-stand, by the way.

4.  Baxter.
 Who wouldn't love that sweet canine...
...and his sweet canine kisses.  Pipe surely does.

5.  Crafts.
 She started it with Nana Camp.
 Now the expectation is that Nana has a bag of tricks at all times...much like Mary Poppins.

Who wouldn't be inspired looking at this pile of fuzzy, colorful fun!?

6.  Reading.  Specifically old Disney stories of mine and my brother's that Nana rescued from the attic.

This is Baxter's favorite time of the day.

7.  Bubbles.

What would we do without the Dollar Store?

8.  Backyard toys.

Pipe took off walking this week.  She was quite attached to the walking toys.  You remember the old popper thing, right?  A little throw-back, vintagey fun.

Fun times in the South.  Now back to reality in Minnesota.  More fun times to be had by all.

Look at P go! The boys have inherited a popper as well - those things are awesome. Glad you had some sweet time at home.
