Harper and June visited with me for several hours yesterday. During the summer the girls are in daycare Monday through Friday, with the exception of Wednesday. On some Wednesdays Harper and June will visit with me.
Chris, “Big Grandma”, dropped off the girls here around 10:30 am yesterday. Harper and June were already playing with the new red ball with white stars that I had purchased at Walmart for them the day before, when I walked outside to greet them. After Chris left, the girls drew pictures on our driveway with sidewalk chalk, blew bubbles and rode their tricycles on the driveway. The girls didn’t have much time for these activities, as my friend Tina expected the three of us at her house at 11:00 am. The girls were eager to go to the farm.
We didn’t stay too long at Tina’s house, just long enough to visit her bulls, cows, chickens, horses and cats. What animal did the girls like the most from their visit? Harper and June liked the cats the most. Several cats live in the barn.
From Tina’s house we drove into Warren to the Beaty Park playground. The girls enjoyed sliding, spinning and climbing activities at the playground. There was a 3-year-old girl by the name of Chloe at the playground, with her grandfather. Chloe, Harper and June played together.
When we left the playground I took the girls to Wendy’s, where all three of us enjoyed a Frosty treat. It was hot outside; the Frosty treat was refreshing.
Back home we spent some time in the back yard on and near the picnic pavilion. The girls played with their new red ball in the yard and with a Little Tykes piano and two sit ‘ n spins on the picnic pavilion. The girls haven’t played much with the piano and sit ‘n spins because they are stored in the basement, and I forget about them. They played games on their tablets, too, while sitting on the picnic pavilion. Harper and June said they were hungry, so we went inside for lunch.
Inside we ate Dino chicken nuggets and applesauce for lunch. The girls watched TV, played two games of Candy Land (June and I played the first game; Harper and I played the second game); played games on their tablets, played with the Fisher Price house and Klip Klop stable and miscellaneous figurines. We did go outside once more, for a short time. The girls rode their tricycles, while I walked alongside, to the end of our street and back.
After the tricycle ride we came back inside. The girls took a bath and changed into clean clothes for church.

Right before I took this picture the girls were looking away, playing with their toys. Bob made a shrill whistle, which made the girls turn and look.
Sue, “Little Grandma”, picked up the girls at 4:15 pm. After church, the girls spent the night at Grandma Chris’s house.
