Friday was a fun day here. We got our oldest Grand and made her work her little tutu off. We hauled firewood, took a load of stuff to the dump and planted a cabbage plant hoping to grow a 'giant cabbage' that might win her a scholarship through a school project.
The cabbages name is "Greg" after her Dad. She picked that name cuz her Dad is super tall, almost 6'8". I told her it wasn't how tall the cabbage was, it was how big around it was. She looked at me closely, and I'm pretty sure she wanted to name the cabbage "Grandma" but she was too polite to say so.
Mid-afternoon we returned Granddaughter 1 and picked up Granddaughter 2.
In addition to picking their parties for their birthdays, they get to spend the night at Grandma and Grandpa's all by themselves while we finish up last minute details for the birthday festivities.
Mr. Jenny made a lovely bonfire (using the wood that Granddaughter 1 helped haul!) and I found out that boys of 60+ still think the way to cook marshmallows is to incinerate them. I cooked my golden brown and perfect...cuz I'm cool like that!
We went to bed pretty early, so we would be ready for the Birthday party the next day.
It's a good thing I rested up!
We played all kinds of relays including push the lemon, carry the beans, three legged races and balloon pops.
The kids of all ages enjoyed pizza, chips and cake!
And then Hannah Montana showed up after all to complete a perfect party day for a little seven year old!
This concludes my random Wednesday blogpost.
You can quit dozing off now!
