More Highlights

On the Harrrington front (Amie's side of the fam) there was never a dull moment -not with 8 of 10 grandchildren present and accounted for. But Grandad was ready with a plan and power tools. The kids made their own birdhouses and loved it. Here are some shots of the crew in action.

Cheyenne (my youngest niece -the camera loves her)

Khiley Beth

Jordan, the tool man.

Lisa -taking it very seriously.

And here they all are with the finished product. They painted them the next day but I don't have a picture of it. We have a license plate topped birdhouse for each of the states that Granny and Grandad have lived in. Pretty cool, huh?

Thanks Grandad for a great idea and a great memory!

You should consider initiating a "rent a grandpa for the day" program! What a blessing he is to those kids!

We have two great grandad/papas. My dad made the birdhouses, camped out in the 5th wheel for a boys night, and hung the tree swing that Nathan is pictured on. Fun things!

And on the nights that Isabella was feverish and refused to sleep more than 30 minutes at a time; my father-in-law would come into the living room around 3:30 A.M. and take the early morning shift so I could get a few hours of sleep. Seeing his face was the highlight of those nights. =)

Wonderful grandpa's indeed!
