He spoiled us with a delicious full calorie breakfast.
|Somehow he talked us into washing the dishes.|
|These two were cute together.|
|Abigial was pretty interested in the fishing for the first twenty minutes.|
|She 'helped' reel this one in.|
|While we were fishing the children played in the dirt and dragged their backpacks around.|
|Shawn Boardin climbed up by himself and Abby had to be lifted up. We walked all the way around the lake only to have Shawn ask me if we could go around again. I eventually did take him around again, Abigail was not interested in coming with.|
|I am pretty sure that these were MY earrings in high school. How she ended up with them, I do not know...and of course they look better on her.|
|These two are crazy cliff climbers.|
|They descended here and they climbed up onto that opposing mountain. I didn't see it.|
After the crazy cliff climbing adventures, we headed to the grocery store to buy ingredients for dinner. Ken bought some tamales off of a hispanic gentleman selling them in the parking lot.
|At another point I came into the kitchen and found this. Thanks Ken for giving my three-year-old a large, sharp (He keeps his knives sharp) butcher knife and then for making her cut up onions.|
|Coloring with Aunt Karolyn. Shawn Boardin always sat here on the counter instead of on the chairs.|
|Karolyn, Shawn, and Abby playing chase.|
|Abby drew this for uncle Ken. There are two pteranodon dinosaurs and then she wrote out her full name for him. I was so proud.|
I really enjoyed visiting him and seeing his rustic country life. He was very kind and hospitable and spoiled us all. Abigial now knows what an ice cream truck is.
