Last Friday was the annual Springs golf outing in FDL. Patrick and some grouping of brothers, wives, family, friends golf each year --- this year it was Patrick, Jeff, John and Corey.
James, Isaac and I went along and spent the day with Grandma Carol, Amy, Claire and Jack.
Both groups had great days - but I only have photos of Grandma's house activities!
The meeting of the bikes - deep conversations!
Claire wanted to pull James around on his bike since he could reach the pedals - he doesn't look to sure here, but it actually worked pretty well.
Jack was waiting all day for Grandpa to come home to ride the John Deere. While he was waiting, he practiced driving in the garage - hat and all!
Claire spent some time with Isaac too!
Not quite sure what was happening here - but was happy I captured it on film!
Miss Claire doing her hair on her bike --- this five year old can do awesome buns and braid her own hair! Add mom's sunglasses and she looked like a movie star!
She also braided my hair later that night --- I loved it!
Jack was helping Grandpa by cutting the lawn before dinner.
Grandma Carol got a 'new to us' kid picnic table and Claire was helping to clean it.
At some point the hose came out and the kids got a hold of it...
As you will see - they had a blast playing in the water! I was sitting in the right place and got some really fun photos.
Pure joy - I love the looks on both of their faces!
Jack often had the hose and James was definitely soaked first - but both were having such a great time, no one cared!
Love the mist in this photo.

Running through the mist... pants starting to sag from the water weight!
Again - such joy!
Check out this sag - at this point, it was time to dry off and change clothes for dinner.
What a fun 20 minutes :)
Fresh, dry clothes and Gilles for dinner - the perfect end to the day!
Grandpa got home and the kids were so excited to see him. All 3 of them swarmed to tell him about their day - couldn't even stop to let him take a bathroom break!
Jacks favorite part of the day --- riding the John Deere!
Such a sweet photo - cousin snuggles while watching the Disney Channel.
Isaac got some quality Grandma and Auntie time too!
Thanks for a terrific day :)
