Grandkids and Ice Cream

Bastille Day (Long Story)--Day 14

It was a hot summer afternoon. 96 degrees, maybe more.  Knowing that my clothes would dry faster on the clothesline than in the dryer, I was outside, um, hanging clothes. On the line.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear but two blond(ish) little elves and their mother so dear!

"We thought we would come and help you celebrate summer!" said my lovely firstborn, Em. She handed me a box of chocolate mint ice cream sandwiches. She knows the way to my heart, even though she's had it from the beginning.

Do you know how hard it is to get three people to look at the camera at once?

Chunk, looking away

Avatar, looking away

Em, looking away

I think Em had the right idea though--when other people are looking away, steal their ice cream!


  1. Em's so bonny! And those boys will break hearts!

    Thanks, Randi - really - for sharing all these summer moments with us. They're a real invitation to capture as many moments like this as we can in our own lives.

    1. I will have to tell Em that you said she's so bonny! She will love that compliment, all wrapped up in bit of Scottish culture. And thanks for the compliment on sharing summer moments. It's really the only way I can keep from feeling like life is rushing by too quickly.


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
