Dinner Delivery

Bob and his daughter, Stacey, were in contact with each other on Father’s Day but unable to get together, as Bob and I were on an all-day motorcycle ride along Lake Erie in New York.  Bob and Stacey made plans to get together on Monday, after Bob came home from work.

Monday afternoon, soon after Bob came home from work, Stacey, Harper and June arrived at our house.  All three girls said “happy Father’s Day” to Bob, which I know warmed his heart.  Stacey brought dinner – Uncle Harold’s marinated chicken, corn pudding, monkey bread flavored with garlic and Parmesan cheese and black bottom pie. While Bob grilled the chicken and talked with Stacey, I played with Harper and June.   Harper, June and I played hide ‘n seek and tossed / rolled a couple balls all over the back yard.  Harper and June especially liked rolling the balls down a small hill into our neighbors back yard.  The girls would run down the hill after the ball, laughing the entire time.  Then they would slowly climb the hill and do it all again.  My part in this play was to sit on the top of the hill and say “yay” each time the ball rolled down the hill.

When it was time to eat, we went inside.  It felt much better inside, as it was hot and humid outside.  The bugs were being a nuisance as well.

Stacey, Harper and June

Harper and June are almost 25 months old.  They sure are getting big fast!

We had a great visit with Stacey, Harper and June.  We couldn’t have eaten a better dinner.  Stacey is an excellent cook.  Dinner was delicious.

Mother’s Day Weekend Visit

Bob and I visited with Stacey and our granddaughters yesterday afternoon.  It was nice outside, so we spent most of the visit outdoors.

The girls will be 1 year old one week from today.  Time sure flies!

I LOVE these two photographs that I captured of Grampa, Harper and June!

Our Christmas Tree

I took this photograph of our Christmas tree a short time ago, this evening.  The only lighting is that which shines from the bulbs on the Christmas tree.

Our Christmas Tree

Earlier this month I took a photograph of Bob, our cat Patches, and me for this year’s Christmas card.  I designed the card myself, with the help of a Photobacks holiday template.

This Year’s Christmas Card

 

The day after taking the photograph of Bob, Patches and me, Stacey stopped by the house.  She was enjoying a few hours personal time and looked so relaxed and pretty.  I couldn’t resist taking a couple photographs of Stacey and our Christmas tree.

Stacey and our Christmas Tree

Stacey is such a lovely young woman, inside and outside.  I am so blessed that she and her father came into my life 14 1/2 years ago.

We will be celebrating Christmas with Stacey, Mike and our granddaughters on Christmas Day.  I will return to blogging after Christmas.  Merry Christmas to family and friends near and far!

TieDyeOnesie

My stepdaughter has opened  an Etsy store.  She is selling tie-dyed onesies.  One selection, image taken from Stacey’s Etsy store,  is shown above.  The onesies would make a great baby shower gift or a gift for the special baby in your life.  Please check out Harmony Place Fabric Co.,  and feel free to share the address with your friends.  Good luck, Stacey, in your new endeavor!

A Morning’s Walk

Stacey and I took the girls for a walk this morning at the Audubon Center in Jamestown, NY.  We followed the yellow trail around Big Pond and through the woods.  We walked a little over 2 miles.  Shortly after our arrival, we stopped at the Big Pond Overlook, where we fed the girls.  Harper and June slept throughout our walk around Big Pond and through the woods.

This was Stacey’s first visit to the Audubon Center, whereas I have been there numerous times.  Stacey really liked walking there.  We plan to make a return trip.

New Photographs of our Grandchildren

I haven’t shared any photographs of our grandchildren in my blog since the girls were 6 days old.  I am remedying that here and now.

Harper (on left) and Juniper (on right) are 24 days old.

I took this picture on June 11th.  Stacey, the girls and I had come to my house after a morning walk and shopping trip.  Harper and June had just been fed and their diapers changed, when I snapped this picture.  They were quite happy to have their bellies full and to have dry diapers.

Stacey and the girls walked with me again two days later.  Stacey’s friend, Shanell, and her infant son, who were visiting from out of state, accompanied us.  I’m sorry to say that I didn’t take one picture that day.

The next day Stacey, the girls and I went for another walk.

An Afternoon Walk on the North Warren-Warren Bike/Hike Trail

I took this picture, while on our Thursday afternoon walk.  The walk made Harper and June sleepy.  I like how both girls are leaning to the left, while they nap.

Bob, Stacey, Harper and Juniper on Father’s Day

Stacey’s visit with the girls was the best Father’s Day present that Bob could have received!  Harper and June are just a day shy of turning 1 month old in this picture.

Day at the Beach

I took Stacey to Erie for an OB appointment. Stacey’s mom accompanied Stacey and I. Stacey had a sonogram; the babies are doing well. After today’s appointment we ate lunch at Hoss’s Steak and Sea House and then went for a ride around Presque Isle State Park.
