The Last Few Days

I have been babysitting my twin granddaughters, Becca and Kate, for the last few days.  I love getting to do this.  They are 9 months old now.  They are totally different.  I love watching as they get their own personalities.  It is so wonderful to see the ways they are to be able to watch as they learn new things.  To see the little smiles on their faces just melts my heart, so yes I am going to show you more photos that I took of them.

Flat Ole Hippies in Gig Harbor

We got to go with our friend to Gig Harbor to take care of her daughter after her foot surgery.DSC_0582

Sarah still has to go for 3 more weeks in her cast with no weight bearing.

Cindy had to do the cooking and cleaning which her son loved because he didn’t have to do it.DSC_0583

We didn’t get to take a picture with her son in law, Steve, because he was gone to work.  Cade was taking his Mom to the airport after she got the kids off to school.

 

Brodie, Willow and Meadow are such cute and fun kids as you can tell in this last picture.DSC_0586

It was so much fun getting to know some more of Cindy’s family.

We had a great time in Gig Harbor on the Key Peninsula.  Thanks for taking us.

 

 

 

Smoking and Trucking

I don’t know how many of you have kids out there but I have five, 3 boys and 2 girls.  They age from 44 to 35 this year.  You know we all love our kids no matter what stupid things they do.  Of course, I have to remember the dumb things I did when I was young and survived.  The boys as they grew older slowly got their head out of there; oh what would you call it, Oh yea ASS!  Anyway so my youngest finally got his head out and just got out 6 months of rehab.  We are all very proud of him for this.  So he has decided that he should not drive until he gets his license back.  I guess he decided seven years without was probably enough because those driving without a license fines and jail time was not fun.  So we were helping him get a truck today so he can get his interlock in it and then he can get his license.  Anyway he finds a $800 truck he wants. We take him over to look at it and he buys it.  I am thinking great we can get everything done before we leave on Monday.   I call about getting the interlock put in and am told that because it is almost closing time and a holiday weekend they won’t be open again until Tuesday. Then we found out that he has to take the driving part again in his truck with the interlock in because it has been so long. Which means he is going to have to fix the passenger seat because the back of it is in the back seat.  The truck needed an alternator, so we took him to pick that up.  We go back to the truck and he puts it in.  We jump it and of course, it is empty.  Off to the gas station with David, my husband, driving and me following.  We gas up and get onto Diamond, a main street in Anchorage, Alaska, at rush hour.  What happens then you ask?  It dies at a stop light.  I have to pull up next to them, so they can try to jump it. I now have blocked the turn lane and have now pissed off tons of people because  they can’t get a round us. So the guys decide we will pull it with out Subaru Outback.  All we have is some nylon rope that they have doubled and got us tied together.  As we start off the rope breaks.  They fix it and we get pulled into the nearest parking lot.  After tightening up connections and charging the battery the guys get it running.  We are off again home.  Oh yea, I forgot to mention that the guy that had the truck had a ton too much oil in it, so it is smoking to high heaven.  So we have smoke going everywhere and then this guy in a convertible goes zooming past us.  I am thinking I bet you are trying to get out of the smoke.  I remember driving down some Interstate one time and saw signs that said don’t drive into the smoke.  I could never figure out what that sign meant but now I am wondering if it has something to do with this.  Anyway, the truck is home.  My son then says I think things are starting to go my way!
