The boys and I went to my parents at the end of June driving back July 4. I always love the photos I take there and love scrapbooking them – but I don’t do it all at once. I spread it out, which lets me dip back into the memories of being there. Here are three of the pages I’ve made.
Joshua asked me to order a whole lot of paracord to be delivered to my parents’ house so he could teach his cousins how to make paracord bracelets. (He’s a big Instructables reader). Who knew it would be this compelling? Love the shot of Sara and Isaac in the haymow making bracelets. They were waiting for Uncle Matt to come back so they could help him load his truck with hay but keeping their hands busy until then.
We bought a bocce ball set on the way out – actually we bought a lot of things on the way out including a new game called “Dominion” that’s become a favorite. Isaac’s a bowler now (need to scrapbook that!) and he loves games and things he can work at getting better at – plus Grandma and Grandpa’s lawn is so perfect for this kind of thing. I’ve got more photos of Isaac and the girls playing. Saving those for another scrappy day.
One of the many differences between life at my parents’ home and life at our home is that they get drop-by visitors A LOT! On this afternoon we were playing Dominion and making bracelets when two of Mom’s friends dropped by – they’d been out driving and shopping and were looking for a restroom pitstop. Pat and Linda have been Mom’s friends for oh-so-long and Pat has an incredible sense of fun. Somebody came running into the house telling me to get my camera and when I got outside, this is what I saw, Ethan riding in the market cart Pat was using to steady her walk across the rocky driveway.
