It's been warmer here in Idaho! Most of the week it was warm enough to sit out on the patio between odds and ends projects, it was so nice to just sit in the sun. Most of the time we have a pretty brisk wind here, but on Thursday and Friday it was perfect.
On Wednesday, Bob put in a new water softener, I can't tell you how happy that makes me! Our old one went out a while back, and it will be so nice to have soft water again.
Yesterday, I was busy with a, Daughter's of Utah Pioneers convention, which turned out to be wonderful! I'm very proud of my pioneer heritage, and keeping their memories alive through stories and photos is very important to me. I have been a member of DUP for almost 20 years, and it's a great adventure!
While I was at the DUP convention, Bob was busy being a grandpa. Clara had Grandparents Day yesterday, so he was IT. He had a fun time having lunch and playing games with the kids at her school. I'm not sure who had the most fun, Clara or Grandpa... ;0)
Clara also spent the night a few weeks ago. She loves dinosaurs, so we wanted to take her to a fun dinosaur exhibit at the museum in Idaho Falls. The dinosaurs were all made of metal, and some of them moved by remote control, or motion detectors, it was very interesting. I think Clara may have been a little bit afraid of some of them at first, but she loved it. She wants to be a professor of paleontology when she grows up, and she would be a good one. She's only 7 but she knew the name of every dinosaur.
We thought it would be fun to take her picture with new technology in front of the display of an old camera shop.
The night before we went to the museum, she wanted to watch, The Wizard of Oz. I was a little worried, because I didn't want her to be afraid...it can be a scary for little's. But, she loved it, and was asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow...of course she had fluffy teddy bear to cuddle with.
She is a fun, sweet, tender little grand, and we loved having her come and spend time with us.
Clara and Grandpa doing a little four-wheeling in the yard after Brody harrowed the pasture. It was nice of him to come up and do it. He's 14, and when they get to be that age, you know you don't have too many more years before they are busy and off to bigger and better things. He's a wonderful grandson, we love him!
As we get older, we can both see so many things that need to be changed around the house and yard, to make it easier on us, so we have lots of projects planned for this summer. I hope the weather stays warm so that we can get them done.
The sunsets have been really pretty, and you know me, I just can't resist a beautiful sunset!
Have a wonderful week-end and be safe, wherever you are!
Hugs and Love,
