Another Week With Grandkids

Hal takes Dan who isn't the 56" tall required to drive

Courtney - Guitar Hero!

A tough shot.

This week we had 4 of the Chicago Jones Gang. Teresa & Harry took Allie to NYC as has been the tradition when each of their children when they reach a certain age. We've worked, we've played, we've toured the Folkcraft dulcimer factory. It's been a busy week and tomorrow will be the annual Easter egg hunt (a week early because the Chicago kids are here). The kids filled all the eggs with candy and cash for the hunt tomorrow. One of the favorite activities this week was Go-Karts at the Putt-Putt. They also played Min. Golf and video games but that was not nearly as fun for them as the Go-Karts.

Time Trials

So grandkids are visiting for a couple days while George & Anna celebrate their 10th anniversary. Things are pretty active at their house so coming to Grandma & Grandpa's can be a little "boring". An inspiration to clean out the refrig came partly because of a need to have kids involved in some activity and partly because of the odd odors that have been accumulating in there over the past couple weeks. The frig was chuck full - and beyond. We timed how long it took us to get every last thing out of the frig - not the freezer part. Natalie & Sam started the process and Seth & Levi joined in near the end. It took us a total of 6 minutes to empty it! Record time and these guys really know how to move.
Kids in front of the clean, reloaded frig - Well done racers!
