It’s been awhile since I had my little grandson all to myself for a day. I’d put off taking gifts out to my mom for Mother’s Day until I could also bring the best gift, which was him, along. So off we went on the Friday after Mother’s Day with a restaurant to-go lunch and flowers and chocolate for a visit.
Usually we take some books and toys…on that day it was his Nintendo DS to show her.
While they were thus engaged I took a few shots around her house…
She has an incredible amount of STUFF, lol…
This is a 1960’s ranch house. It’s not big but it is loaded with STUFF : ) The pictures of her and my grandson are taken in the living room, where the couch faces the ‘picture window’ looking out to the countryside view. Behind the couch is this, with a desk in the corner. Milk cans like this and vintage or antique jugs are scattered about…some from my mom’s collecting habits over the years, and many from my grandparents.
Everywhere you look….more stuff : ) I only snapped a few photos…it would take me a day to try to seriously photograph her place. As it is, many of the photos that I took were too quick / too dark, etc. Some of these are not the greatest but the world won’t end if I post the mediocre ones, right? Right. : ) And by now you’ll have an idea of her country decor.
Indoors it was quite dark but here’s a kitchen corner:
Ok the lunch has been cleaned up, let’s go outside a bit into the sun.
After that we stopped at a little petting zoo at a local farm, as we generally do in nice weather when we are out that way.
Next a playground :
There was a bit more to this day but this post is long enough for the moment. Baby geese etc. in another one! As usual I took many pictures and have more to sort through. I can’t believe that he’s going to be six years old soon. Where did the time go : )
