In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

After babysitting all day....yes I know...Grandpa and I watched Hunter while his mommy went to get her hair cut. We had such nice weather we went to the play park. Baseball has begun here in Wobegon and so there were lots of kids at the park(it is near the baseball field). Hunter was ready to play. He took Grandpas hand and off they went, bucket in hand hoping for a sandbox.

There was no sand:( Lots of bark chips which I didn't quite get for a playland but maybe it is earth friendly. He loved the little slide that looked like a train. (we forgot our train whistles at home.) I think Grandpa was happy we didn't have any whistles.

This was repeated over and over and over again. He really had a great time, and so did Grandma. There is something special about bringing a smile to your grandchilds face.

This , I think, is suppose to be like a teter-totter. He kept his hat on the whole time. He has fair skin so sunscreen and hats are important. He let his sunglasses fall around his neck.

What a Grandma won't do for their grandchild. He wanted to go on the big slide, like the big kids, but needed help finding his way to the top. Yes, we did that a couple of times.

Climbing to the top

Finding out where the stairs where.

This is our new splash park. They haven't turned the water on yet but they will soon. Hunter had brought a few cars along to play with and dropped them on the side walk.

He is very particular about how things should go and had to get them back in the bucket just so. to McDonalds to get some ice cream

a joyful day - doesn't take Disneyworld to amuse a bright little boy. Glad you are getting warmer weather and handsome grandson can get outside to play with two of his favorite playmates.

Oh Alice, what a nice day for you, Paul and Hunter! Grandchildren are very much worth the wait, aren't they? I especially like the picture of Paul and Hunter walking side by side.
