It's Always Fun When Grandpa Comes...

when Grandpa comes to stay... that's forsure.. Today my dad come in for a visit for about 2 weeks and I am very grateful for that.. He's here to help me out a bit, while Jeremy is busy at work.. The kids were sooo excited and all over him.. He play baseball with them, watched them ride their bikes, took them to the park, and also read their books to him.. and that was just all in the afternoon today... So they are very excited he is here too.
Well finally a dream come true of ours.. we are finally getting a fence!! It's only been almost 4 1/2 years since we moved in, but it's one thing that has been on the list of things to do, for a LONG time, and keeps getting passed over. We can't redo the back of the fence, which we would still like to do some day, but will enclose the yard and add a gate.. There was a bit of a problem with the sprinklers from the job that was done when we first moved here, and took some quick thinking and fast acting to rearrange them by our very wonderful and helpful neighbor.. At about 7:00pm they finally poured the cement and set it.. and in about 10 days we will be fenced in and can NOT wait...

I am so happy for you - a fence. That is on our "list" - someday. Your kids looked like they were having lots of fun with your dad. How nice for him to come!
