Family BBQ Saturday.....

Lila was back to her old schedule today....This morning we were up at 4.30 ish....its all good....since she went down around 10pm-ish.....we went back to sleep till about 7.30am.....Shawn and his mom went to the farmers market in Moscow this morning....I wasn't feeling it this morning and plus I knew I would need to feed Lila and get the girls up on time....it was nice to have a morning with the girls, Grandpa and Aimee.....The girls helped Grandpa plant tomatoes this morning.....boy did they have fun...The sure do love doing things with Bapa....I wish I had taken some pics...oh well...but here are some of the Horse Tire Swing from yesterday....Kiara has since named the swing "HEE-HAW"....Daddy asked her what we should name it and that was the first thing out of her mouth....The swing is so fun for the girls....after playing on it today it looks like we will need to raise it just a bit....I am sure Grandpa will have it all taken care of in the AM...

So I found out today that both my girls, but especially Mikiah, are afraid of the lawn mower...I mean at home we have a yard guy that comes around once a week to mow and the girls don't always see him....so watching Grandpa and Daddy mow today wasn't fun for the girls....MJ had the biggest tears...and clung on tight to whoever was closer to her.....Nanna Anna did a pretty good job trying to distract the girls by having them help her plant some new plants....it sort of worked but they were still terrified...I am sure they will get over it soon....

Today we had a good ol' fashioned family bbq...hamburgers, hot dogs, beans and potato salad....I love American food...it was all good...Great Grandma Gail and George came down from Spokane to meet the newest great granddaughter Lila....She is Lila's middle namesake.....She now has 4 great granddaughters....No great grandsons yet.....here is a pic of the two of them....She is such a pro....raising 7 kids of her own on a farm.... and man can she cook!


The Robinson 8 (Shawn's aunt and uncle and their 6 kids, by far the best behaved kids I know!!) also came down from Spokane for the bbq......although today they were the Robinson 7.....one of their sons was on a trip and couldn't make it....It was good to see Shawn's cousins...they are all growing up so fast....I still cant believe that their oldest son is graduating high school in two weeks....crazy.......Kiara and Mikiah just love playing with the Robinson Girls...they all were pretty busy playing the whole afternoon.....

I have to thank Karey for bringing over the outdoor play kitchen.....The girls played there pretty much all day....Mikiah and Kiara are loving it....their food imaginations run wild....so cute...here is pic of Mikiah practicing washing her hands....I guess she is learning from watching Barney....

Today was a great day.....except for DB who keeps picking fights with Aimee's dog Zoe....and Zoe is such a great mellow submissive dog....Not sure what hair is up DBs ass today....but there is something going there....Anyway all in all its been a good day....I got to have a glass of Sangria (My Recipe, Kari you know the one).....LOVE IT....I could have drank the whole Gallon....but nope I am a good mommy and only had one small glass....I just forgot how good it is.....man....So Yummy!.....Its nice right now to be sitting all along in the Harper's living room....I guess I have been needing just a little bit of me time....I feel as though Lila has been attached to me all day....even though she really hasn't......I also am deciding if I need to eat a snack...I love BBQs and stuff but I have a hard time eating dinner at 3.oopm....dessert around 4.30pm.....and then not eating for the rest of the night....it totally messes up my eating....so now its a bit too late to eat...but I am a bit hungry.....oh well, guess I will just slam some water and try not to think about food....hmmmm, I don't think I can do that.....I think food thoughts occupy about 75% of my brain....ughhh, oh well enough about food........I am going to end tonight's blog with my favorite pic of the day.....

Kiara Bear...."Seriously its just Juice Mommy"


*****It was just juice....in a plastic beer cup *****
