And in the Face of a Child

 A visit to nearby Pickle Factory

a stop at the park...
 where we could run, play, and skip rocks....
and a stop at a friend's alpaca farm
 for a demonstration

 and hands on education in using a 2-pedaled spinning wheel!
Before the "Early Birthday Party" (hers is actually in a couple of weeks)
we garage-saled.  Then some napped or played baseball with Grandpa.

We were unable to get the (cheap) birthday child's sewing machine up and running.
Maybe it was tired like Grandma?!?
Oh, it was SO good to see and hold and coo over  healthy Silas!
I'll work at getting pictures of Elijah.  It was hard to get him to hold still...
and I just realized I have NO pictures of him.

He can come to us at our ordinary duties."

...and in the face of a child!


  1. Next time the grandchildren come for a visit, I want to come too. It looked like lots of fun and garage sales too?! And cake? I'm gonna need to up my grandma game, LOL!!
    Good for you Rebecca. Those are some beautiful children. I know how hard it can be to catch them with the camera, Jack is near impossible!
    I can't wait to see more of Silas and am so glad that he is doing so much better, what a blessing. Have a beautiful weekend.
    Love Di ♥

  2. Boy! You packed A LOT into one day!!
    Your grandchildren are beautiful! Each and every one of them!
    And I love the difference in their actions and faces with each event!

    Happy Birthday to your granddaughter! Nice that you could have an early celebration with her.

    And, I so agree, I do see the Face of God in the face of my grandchildren.
    We are so Blessed!
    Love and Prayers,

  3. Oh your everyday is just grand..truly grand!!! What a joy and blessing.

  4. What lovely pictures these are, dear Rebecca! You really had a handful, didn't you? Silas is such a darling... glad to know he's healthy!

    Love to Amber...


  5. Glad to see baby Silas looking so healthy....and the other grands too. :)

  6. Oh wonderful that Silas is doing so much better :) Thank you for stopping by... my prayers are with you grandma :)
