Arkansas babies come to visit

Our son and his wife went on a pastoral sabbatical to Colorado this past week. In a place where it is quiet and there are only wild deer and other critters around. They got reading done and Josh composed and recorded music. They asked if we would watch their children.

So we got to care for our Arkansas grandchildren for the week.

They love to wrestle with their Papa!

Eli can make a grumpy face on demand. So funny (especially since he isn't really grumpy. If he were, that wouldn' be funny)!

The kids arrived Sunday night, May 1, so since it was too late to do the May Day baskets, we did them on May 2. Still counts, doesn't it?

They made May baskets and we filled them with flowers from the garden. Off to Grandma Lois and Grandpa Pete's for the secret delivery!

Ringing the door bell and running!

I guess they don't have the May Day tradition in Arkansas. Emeri didn't realize you are supposed to leave the May basket on the front door step.

They found us!

Grandma Lois had treats for the girls in exchange for the flower baskets.

Hannah had a program at school. The pre-school and kindergarteners did a Noah's ark renditon.

Hannah was so proud to wear the Wisconsin badge since she was born in Green Bay, WI!

Hannah, great program! You were wonderful!

The young mom's Bible study met at the park for our last meeting time. So we took Emeri and Eli to that. (another post with pictures of that morning to follow at another time)

We had a sack lunch. Yum!

Emeri enjoyed playing in the play house under our stairs. She played for hours there!

We went to the zoo. It was the day after the leopard attacked that 7 year old. Do you know I had my own zoo incident in Japan when I was 6? I got too close to the monkey cage and a monkey grabbed my hair. Once a monkey got my mom's glasses and destroyed them. We kept a close watch on the kiddos so they wouldn't climb over the fences.

A little baby chimp! Adorable!

More adventure to follow.
