Family Time on the River

This weekend we got together with Dorothy's clan to spend some time at the river for good food, good company, and fun.

We met at the club house at the Illinois River Ranch and ate lunch overlooking the river
in air conditioned comfort. That's my kind of camping out.



Everyone walked, floated, swam down the river.

There goes Hunter.




Most of the kids swam over to the bluff and jumped off into the water.  Jenna went over 3 times.

Patient Tank

I've never seen a dog as patient with children as our neighbor's Tank.


Gracen hooked a bungee  cord to Tank's collar and led him all around the yard.






Gracen hooked her end of the cord to the bush and although Tank could have easily
 walked away, he sat there until she returned for him.




Dorothy bought this table at an auction
and it has been handy for the grand kids
to do projects on. If we put toys, tools,
containers, etc. on it, Gracen will keep busy
for hours.

Note the tape measure Gracen has
attached to her pants. She's a future
engineer.

Princess Sleepover

Jenna and Gracen came over last night to spend the night with Poppie and Nana.


We ate home made hamburgers and french fries.


The girls made themselves comfortable.


They were on the swing-set this morning before they even got dressed
