Movie Day

Grandpa has begun a tradition for summer to have a movie day on Monday mornings with Amanda & Tyler's boys. They love the action movies and have been watching the Indiana Jones series - even with popcorn. Afterward, we fix them lunch and goodies. We invite any grandchildren to join us and spend some time with us this summer.

Day with Grammy

On Tuesday, Paige wanted a day with Grammy so we went shopping, had a happy meal and as you can see we took a nap, which Malcolm took a photo of. It would be fun to have all our grandchildren close so we could have a day with them each!

Father's Day Celebration 2008

We had a fun Father's Day celebration on Saturday with Malcolm's Mom and Amanda, Tyler and their children. They got Malcolm a shirt which says, "We are hooked on Grandpa! All the children's names hang down on hooks - very clever and looks great on Grandpa.
We had a yummy lunch with salads, bread and dessert. Later in the evening we went to a HP Party in the country and had more yummy food and great company. A very fun and relaxing day! Dad's day was complete with phone calls and cards received from our children!!

Update on Our Garden

Malcolm is our gardener and put in some posts today for our grapes at each end of one of the raised beds. He then strung some strong lines for the grapes to climb. It looks like it will work great. We have enjoyed green beans and cauliflower from the garden already.

Trip up North

Tuesday, Malcolm and I drove up to Val & Don's home in Redding and celebrated Malcolm's birthday with yummy hamburgers and strawberry shortcake and played with Nicole and Jon. We had a fun evening and a good nights sleep. Wednesday we drove up to Medford to attend our granddaughter, Brittany's high school graduation. We had a good visit with Todd and Billie and Billie' Mom, Susan. In the afternoon we had pizza with Brittany, Sarah and Andrew and the rest of us - it was delicious! The graduation was very short and very nice. Brittany looked so pretty and was very sweet. Some pictures were taken and we will share them we they get to our computer! We spent the night at Susan's who was so kind to us. Thursday am we had breakfast with Todd and Billie We saw this picture is Mt. Shasta with a mushroom shaped cloud on top on our way home. I took it through the front window of the car so we were surprised it turned out so well.

Malcolm and I took our absentee ballot into the election office yesterday and a photographer from the Appeal -Democrat asked permission to take our picture while we were sumitting our ballots to the election clerk. We were surprised to see the picture on the front page of the paper this morning!
