Artists in residence

We had a busy weekend.  We had Charlie, Ceci and Michael here for three days,  and Elizabeth and Adelaide came to play Saturday afternoon.  Of course there was much running, racing, play doh, a new thing...grandma let them play basketball in the house and they built forts.  After lunch they needed some down time so out came the paints. 

 Charlie experimented with a different canvas to hilarious giggles from the girls.
 Grandpa had the most important job this weekend.

Sunday morning Grandpa took Charlie and Ceci for a walk to see the ice on the lake.  They took the hard road over piles and through ditches.  They reported you can see forever and that they could see open water way out there.  They saw two low flying airplanes and lots and lots of ice.

 I love what the cold does for cheeks.
What an action packed, fun weekend we had! 


  1. How adorable. Looks like they had a great time. I love the picture of Grandpa! Looks like you got a lot more snow than we did here and we got a LOT!

  2. You are one brave grandma with all that paint!
