TGIF!  Ice Cream just says summer and a banana split is top on the list.

Below are a few of the things my grandchildren are doing this summer.

First are Caroline and Elizabeth.  Their Girl Scout troop went to a nearby assisted living home and planted both flowers and herbs for the residents. The girls had as much fun doing it, as the residents did watching them.

Jesse fished and learned to ride his bicycle. Gotta love his helmet!  He is all boy!

Ahhh, to be a child again.  Some days I wish it was that way, and in other ways, I don't want to go through the 'growing up' stage.  I love it that most of my grands enjoy being outside and aren't stuck in front of the TV or constantly texting. Don't get me wrong, they do use their cell phones, if they have them, but they also like being in the yard.

People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back...'



  1. Linda-I love your blog look!! (I love all them, but this one I especially love!)--thanks for the photos. Blessings

  2. I remember spending the summer outside, riding bike and exploring. Wonderful memories! Glad your grandkids are enjoying there summer too.

  3. Love your background full of flowers, Linda! It makes me happy! Great photos of your grands. How great that the girls had a project at a nursing home. Awesome learning experience. Jesse is definitely all boy!! Wishing you a good weekend ahead! Hugs!

  4. Love the pictures. I agree with you --- they're outside having fun.
    That banana split is huge! I love ice cream served any way.
    Your blog looks so pretty today with all the flowers.
    Hope you're having a great day.

  5. The grands look so cute. I remember volunteering to work in Nursing Homes or other places when I was growing up. It's a good character builder for kids to do that.
    Hope y'all are having a pain free day. ~:)

  6. First can I just say how beautiful your grandchildren are? They are so happy and carefree. There really isn't anything better than being a child in the summertime! I love your new background!
