Wild Friday Nights...

...

Yup.

We're all about the wild times here at the Matlock house.

Friday afternoon it got down to a brisk 101 degrees and things got crazy.

Our youngest and middle Grandlittle came to visit after school and promptly said, "Wow, it's not too hot out! We should ride our bikes!"

Mr. Jenny dragged out the new (to them! I love garage sales!) Green Machine...and they were off!






Stuffed animals, a pogo stick and neighbor kids joined in the fun...





And our sweet Grandlittles enjoyed a gourmet meal of hardboiled eggs, turkey and peaches on their vehicles of choice...





And we were all exhausted.

What fun! I can just see their excited faces each time they learn they are going to grandma & grampa's house!

Shay said...

Looks like more fun that any kid could poke a (pogo) stick at !

Theresa said...

They are ADORABLE!! I love how one of them crammed what looks like a pillow behind them on the bike!!

Love,

Looks like fun for all! 101 degrees and no jackets? Isn't that considered cold for this time of year in Arizona?!

We had a pretty awesome Pogo stick that the kids (and my husband) used to love. A few weeks ago, one of my son's friends was jumping on it when a foot peg snapped off. Yowch! I guess it pays to inspect these things from time to time!

OMG, they still have the Green Machine around??? I loved that thing!! Sounds like a fun, sweat filled, day:-)

Mumsy's Place said...

Adorable pics. That green machine looks like a blast. When I was a kid, I was the queen of the pogo jumping competitions in our neighborhood. I tried getting on a pogo stick again about three years ago. I forgot that I was much older, and much more incontinent. Oops.

Terra said...

that looks like so much fun! At 101 I am hiding in my AC...we are topping out in the 80's now with 50's at night and let me tell you, I am in HEAVEN

Sue said...

i got a long-awaited pogo stick for my 7th birthday and never learned to jump on it. Somehow, the whole process was a lot more difficult than it had looked on TV.

=)

Holly said...

101? I would not survive!!!! But you are such a good grandma!!!! The smiles on their faces show how happy you and Mr. J make them! Hope it cools down some for you :)

Jo said...

only 101 degrees you say! must be perfect weather for a green machine!!! It looks like fun was had by all!

Cheryl said...

Who could ask for more? Adorable shots Jenny.

Leovi said...

Beautiful, sweet and loving. Beautiful photos, I like that tricycle.

Ms. A said...

Seeing that Green Machine and pogo stick, brought back some memories. I still have both around here, somewhere! Excellent photos, Jenny!!!

Donnie said...

Looks like a fun time for all. I especially love that green machine...lol...

Nezzy said...

It's good to know we still have a little 'wild' left in us! Heeehehehe1

What adorable pictures Jenny!

You are most certainly blessed!

God bless and have a terrific day sweetie!!!

Wanda..... said...

The 'green machine' looks like quite a workout is involved in the use of it!

Ames said...

What kind of bike is that?? It reminds me of the big Wheel bikes that were around when I was very young. Looks like all had fun. Kids are so easy to feed. And I do love a cold kitchen!!~Ames

I think I have found my match for someone that enjoys their grandkids as much as me and my hubby. And how cute that they had their lunch "on the vehicle of their choice".

Pondside said...

What a lot of fun.
I'm sure that some were more exhausted than others - the taller ones, perhaps?

Karen S. said...

Their rides, especially the green-machine, looks super cool! It looks like they all had a blast, and were ready for movies and popcorn maybe! What a great way to end the week!

jabblog said...

What great fun they had - and haven't they got pretty hair? Even so, 101 degrees sounds pretty warm to me:-)

Amy said...

101 degrees is not too hot? Wow. I mean, I want orange trees in my back yard, but I don't know if I could really sacrifice the cool autumn weather for them. You are amazing, Jenny, for living there.

And how cute are those little girls?! And the bikes, and the lunches, and a pogo stick? I haven't been on one of those since I was a little kid! You really do know how to throw a mean party!

AsteropeBC said...

The Green Machine looks really cool! Lots of great childhood memories were made on Friday night :)

My boys have had more fun with 2 big wheels my Mom picked up (on the side of the road) than anything store bought!

Looks like they all have a fun afternoon, and yummy healthy meal afterward.
