nana and papa plumps!

 nana and papa plumps arrived last wed, the kids were thrilled to spend time with their other nana and papa.  the kids warmed up quickly and havent left them alone since. haha
joey is quite taken with papa plumps and moved her chair from sitting beside me to papa plumps!  thats ok, ill share her.
 ellie getting her new super fun overalls!  these things save their clothes! since sliding down mud hills is their hobby. ha
 see!  she moved her chair to sit beside him! 
 morning games, actually all day long games have been played!
 games are awesome!
 and some book reading.  notice how joey is totally into the book. haha
 we have spent a lot of time at the land.  we went fri and sat.  both times the boys went in the morning and worked at clearing the trees for the septic field. then the girls joined in the afternoon. we went for walks, played, cooked supper over the fire.  a lot of good memories!

 ellie and mama snuggles

 so.  ellie is scared of bears. and going to the land was turning into this huge drama fest of tears.  nana brought her a swiss cow bell and we decided to turn it into a bear bell!  so ellie wears the bell around her neck and it scares the bears away.  it works!  no tears!  and its cute to boot hearing the bell ring as she moves around

the land

 nothing like it.  coffee and the fire!

the weather has been beautiful the last week, so going to the land and being outside was the perfect combo.  i truly enjoy being out there.  the trees were bright and beautiful, the birds singing and the kids were playing.  it was a great time
 we went for lots of walks, exploring the land.  i snapped a bunch of pics on one of the walks
