Sunday wonders - X

X marks the spot.

This is where the camera batteries gave up.

We are normally 'belt and suspenders' kind of people and we always carry two sets of spare batteries.

But, this, time out, our belt buckle didn't work and the elastic had sprung on our suspenders.  None of the spares seemed to have a charge in them.  We couldn't take any more photos.  How could this happen?

Too bad, too, because we all had a great time flying kites - there's always a breeze by the water.  And seeing the fish boats bring in their catches of salmon.  And having a yummy lunch - with chocolate milk.  And playing on the big train in the park.  And buying some sock yarn with Grammy.  And eating ice cream that melted so fast in the hot sun.  And then, when we were all  getting so tired and hot riding home, Mommy drove up in the car and loaded some small weary people into their car seats.  And the bikes in the trunk.  Thanks, Mom!

Will you be my new grammy and do all those fun things with me? Your grandkids are very lucky, and I am not, because no pictures!! Isn't being a grandparent the best? You get all the fun with them, then when you're tired, away they go with mom and dad!

What a fabulous wat to spend the day. It's have the photos in your head and the way you paint a picture with words is good enough for me.

How did I miss a blog that had the word KNITTING in the title? I love to knit, altho since I gave up tv the knitting has kinda suffered!

Thanks for participating in my BBQ!

Look at all those turtles! You hit the jackpot!

I feel your frustration with the batteries. I'm glad it didn't ruin your day, though. Sounds like it was loads of fun.

Ice cream that melts in the sun? Yummy!
No batteries? No problem if you have ice-cream instead!
Wasn't Karen's BBQ fun?
