It's been about a month  since I took these pictures of 4 of my grandkids while they were visiting and I was supposed to put them on my blog but I was on blog vacations would you know.

I can't bear to show you pictures of my tall weeds, instead  I'll show you pictures of my tall grandkids.

Granddaughter N. blowing on dandelion fluff and my grandson S. curling the end of a dandelion stem with his tongue.

Granddaughter N. walking up the driveway.

S. blowing millions of dandelion seeds all over the place.  See why I can't keep ahead of the weeds.
M. in the background picking dandelion fluff to blow some more.

Granddaughter M. showing us her new possession. A dead kitten  that crawled in between the loft floor and the barn ceiling and fell to his death on the cement floor below through a missing piece of ceiling board, poor little thing...

M. is very interested about animals skeletons and knows where every bones belongs and what they are called. She already has a collection of assembled animal skeletons (in her closet).   hehehe...
She will probably burry this kitty to let it decompose and retrieve the bones. She is also interested in taxidermy.  Not your average kid for sure.  N. the clown of the family does a gesture of presentation...

For now the remains are wrapped in paper towels and lovingly placed in the back of the van for it's trip to my daughter's house. The lucky girl...

Now L. has had a growth spurt and is towering over me and I have to look up to him . He's getting his fishing rod read

Grandson L caught these white perch at the lake.

These were a fair size and he's almost done cleaning them.

This is Papa  caught reluctantly on camera.

I hope that you all enjoyed some relaxation on this long  Canada Day weekend and Happy 4th of July to my American friends.  JB
