The weather finally perked up and we got outside a couple of times. Grandpa has a new helper who happily watered the pots.
You may notice he got a little wet and the pots got a LOT wet.
Even though the most fun is playing with the boys, we did do a few other things this week.
I cooked chicken-curry-rice casserole.
I baked peanut-butter chocolate chip cookies and banana muffins. There were just a few pieces of very brown, frozen bananas in a baggie that fell out of the freezer one day, and I found a better place for them to be–in muffins! We had BBQ’d chicken drumsticks, mashed potatoes and green beans several times. The girls brought take-and-bake pizza one day and that also lasted several days. Easter leftovers were eaten up and the fridge is about empty enough for me to cook a couple of things again.
I worked on some quilting projects and finished the chicken quilt. It was turned into the shop to be machine quilted. We took a few walks, and Rob took our niece down to the Kroc center to swim.
Rob continues to plant his little starts in pots and has put them here and there. They are going to be so pretty as they grow.
He saved many, many dahlia bulbs from some a friend gave us last summer plus the ones he dug up from the corner of the garden. He also received some for his birthday. They are starting to come up in the greenhouse and he has a few places he plans to plant them once they get larger.

Your grandson is soooooo cute! So nice for him and for you to be able to spend such quality time together!
Thank you. We enjoy him and his brother so much.
I love the chicken quilt!
Great shot of him checking the inside of the watering can.
I was thinking it would have been a different picture if there had been water in there:)
I have to tell you… You and Rob have some of the world’s most adorable grandchildren. I have opened your blog half a dozen times this week just because these pictures make me smile. Thank you (and your family!) for your willingness to share these.
