Another Birthday!

It's been so busy the last couple of days that I neglected to post about our visit with our youngest son and his family this past Thursday!  Yes, another birthday...our youngest turned 33. Wow, times does fly :)

We were lucky enough to spend a few hours with the grandkids, Keelan and his baby sister Aislin :) She's growing like a weed and has a smile on her face that appears to be a permanent fixture...hehehe! What a great baby!
Keelan was quite happy with the new bull dozer we brought down for him and wanted to put it in his huge sandbox by the barn :) It's actually hard to find any sort of machine that he doesn't already have. He has an obsession with big machines LOL!

He just had to show us his new chicks and ducks that were in a pen in the back yard.  Toooo cute. Keelan's favorite is the white chick. Wonder if it will let him hold onto it when it's actually full grown LOL!
We all went out for a great supper....we've been trying to go out with them for a long time now, so were quite happy that Thursday was the day!!  A yummy supper and a Happy Birthday song and piece of Keelan LOL!  Yes, being only 3 he thinks everyone is still singing happy birthday to him, and that the sparkler and cake is for, who else....but him LOL!

Aislin was soooo good all through supper....although she is starting to look at the food on plates as something she would love to get hold of....hehehe!

The visit ended all too soon, but hopefully it won't be too long before we get down to visit again. Thanks for a great time guys :) We had a ball!

Happy Birthday Grandpa!!

Nothing brings out excitement for the grandkids like celebrating a birthday....especially a grandparent's birthday, because we're so "old" you know....hehehe! Today was no exception! Grandpa's 62nd birthday isn't until tomorrow, but between school and swimming lessons in the evening, today was a much better day for celebrating. 
What made it even better is our wonderful DIL brought everything over that we needed for supper. Yup, sausages, potatoes, veggies, corn on the was all there. Grandma had nothing to do! What a great DIL...and what a great meal....yummy!

Not only was it grandpa's birthday, but it was also the day to let the goldfish go into our pond. It's become a yearly tradition that Hailee, Hannah & Cade release the goldfish into their summer home. The big surprise is that it's actually warm enough finally to let them go LOL!
We started out with 4 feeder fish, 9 years ago....grandma bought them to keep in our pond the year Hailee, Hannah and Cade's mom and dad were married!  Over the years these 4 fish had hundreds of babies which grandma gave away. I did however keep 3 of them. Never in a million years did I ever imagine that 9 years later, 3 of our grandkids would be helping a couple of the same fish into the pond :)
Sadly, we've lost a few over the years and this summer we only have 3 goldfish. I think grandpa is wanting to add a few more though, so I'm sure our "school" of fish is going to grow shortly LOL!

A bit of drizzle outside didn't put a damper on our fun. We moved indoors and got into some painting...with cut up sponges no less! Hailee was determined to paint with sponges today, and she got her way LOL!

Supper was delicious and then it was time for Happy Birthday and 'cake'.....or should I say it was time for mini cupcakes....hehehe! Yes, we're all trying to be health conscious around here, for the time being at least, so instead of a big cake that we'd be eating for days, we had mini cupcakes....and the best part, each of the kids was allowed to have two! What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon :)

See you at swimming lessons tomorrow night guys!
