A fun weekend.

The weekend was absolutely wonderful!
Melissa, Kevin, Maddie, Charlotte, and Olivia were here for three days.
Kevin showed Grampa how to put the subway tiles up in the upstairs bathroom.

The girls tried to play outside, but the snow was too deep.
They kept Bella, and Bosco busy most of the time.
It seems like we ate more than anything else.

Homemade potato soup, pizza, biscuits, and gravy, omelette's, broasted chicken, etc.
That doesn't include all the ice cream, fruit, popcorn, and other snacks we ate.

Being trapped inside is not a good thing!!!
We did have fun together, though.
I love having the kids here!!
They bring such joy to my heart.

I've learned to let the house go when the grand kids are here at the cottage.
Instead of worrying about keeping the place all neat, and tidy....I let the little ones play, and scatter their things all over the place.
I want them to feel comfortable, and have fun while they are here.
 The weekend was over all too quickly. The kids had to be on their way, and Grampa, and I had to get back to work.
The tile job was finished.
We had a great visit with our family...and more memories were embedded in my brain.
My quest for joy continues.

I hope your weekend brought happiness to your heart, and a smile to your face.
