A Full Heart

Our daughter and her two children were over for this last weekend.
Even though it was barely 50 degrees out we couldn't keep the kids out of the lake!  This was taken before 10 AM in the morning.
If you're wondering what Starlet and Lambert are
looking at, it's this bottle. I had this crazy idea to
put a message in a bottle with our phone number, in the hopes that someone far, far away would call us and let us know were they found. The only problem was the waves kept bringing it right back to us!
We had a lot of fun throwing it out and watching it come back to us.
We had campfires and marshmallow roast.
This photo I got of Emily was her busy photographing us.
We were rewarded with a beautiful sunset.
Then lastly we all cozied in with a heaping bowl of ice cream and a good movie. I don't know if the g'kids liked it, but it sure had Tim and I  laughing
up a storm.
We hated to see them go, but we both had to admit we were zonked after they left! We both hit the recliner chairs with a hot cup of tea for most of the remainder of the day. We must be getting old.
Do you think?



  1. This just sounds like a perfect day...glad you got to enjoy it!

  2. It all looks just lovely:) What a great day when it's spent with family. Love the pic of the sunset!!

  3. What a wonderful day. And I know how you feel about being tired after they go home, our grandkids are 3 and 5 and certainly very active.

  4. How wonderful to be able to spend time with your daughter and grands!
    They have such huge smiles on their faces... so it would seem that they also had a wonderful visit.

    Love that old show...so funny!

    Enjoy this beautiful day.

    Warm wishes..

  5. Looks like a perfect day. I know the kids must love to visit and play in and around the lake.

  6. Brrrrr. I'm sitting here shivering and then I see your g'kids in the lake on a cool day. lol Sounds like you had a fun time with them. And yes, they can wear you out too! Even at age two. :) Have a great day Kimberly.

  7. Sounds like a perfect time to me! Your photos are wonderful. I truly need to get a new camera.

    Oh do I know the rest up after grand kids leave!!!

    I hope you are having a great week! Hugs

  8. Fun times! Wonder what the kids would think if they knew how many times they sent us to the recliners! Hahahahaha...

    No, not old, just youth challenged.

  9. Nice photos of the family and the beautiful location. Too funny about the message in a bottle:-)
    Perfect ending as far as anyone in my family would say....Ice cream!


  10. Oh the memories!
    What a fun time, for everyone!
    It was even fun to read.
    Yes, I can relate to being tired after the grands leave but it's a fun tired.

  11. Hello Kimberly......what fun......such a wonderful family day......love the heart shaped stone.......MMMMMM... marshmello roast......Blessings Francine.

  12. what a perfect day and it ended just right!!!!

  13. Kimberly, this sounds like a perfectly wonderful day. I loved seeing all the pictures. I bet the grandkids had great fun too.

  14. Sounds like a great time! Love your pictures.

  15. Sounds like the most perfect and beautiful day. Loved the photos!

  16. It sounds like you had a really wonderful visit with your kids and grands. I have not seen that movie before, so I'll have to add it to my list.

  17. I love all of the pictures, and yes, I am always wiped out after they leave.
    It looks just beautiful.

  18. Don't you love kids, they are not concerned with the things that concern us, like the temperature!
    Sounds like you had a wonderful, but tiring day.
    I love the sunset photo!
    Hugs, Cindy

  19. That sounds like a perfect day to me! Grandkids are the biggest treat!

  20. What a wonderful time that would have been. It woudld be awesome if your "message in a bottle" ended up somewhere exotic, and whoever found it, let you know.
    I would love that.

    The sunset is beautiful!!!!

  21. Looks like so much fun! The sunset photo is beautiful!
