Visit to Latta Plantation

One weekend earlier in the summer we visited the historic Latta Plantation and this made for some sweet pictures. A cozy little cabin, said to have been used for the servants on the plantation.
A sweet lady, dressed in period clothing, knitting. Someday I'm gonna learn to do that myself when I have lots of free time,
The girls always enjoy seeing animals of any kind.

Doesn't this look like a peaceful place to spend an afternoon?
And just for fun, an adorable pic of Vaishali coming to show me the shoes she found in my closet.

Summer Post #2

Vaishali LOVES to color, write, and paint. Daily I get many requests from her saying "Mommy, I need to color". Not want but need to color, lol I just love that. Here she is one morning, still in her night shirt (brothers old football t-shirt), creating her work of art.
Very serious.
Anjali with teacup in hand, wanting a tea party I'm sure.
Playing in the water table with an idea I found on pinterest. Pirate ships made from frozen blocks of ice with a straw sticking up and a piece of colored tape as the flag. This was great on a really hot day. I also froze little toys standing up on the ships with glitter inside as pirate gold. The girls love anything to do with the idea of pirates. Once the "pirate ships" melted there was pretty gold glitter glimmering in the water.
And later playing with Bubby. He spends most of his time working and helping different relatives, so the girls are always excited when they get to play with him. Jacob of course spends his days playing hanging out with his friends, riding bikes, playing video games and such. He's getting ready to turn 13 and reminds me often that he no longer plays, but rather "hangs out" with his friends. Ugh, he's barreling towards those dreadful teenage years.
Thankfully, he does still enjoy playing with his little sisters.

Catch Up on Summer Days Post #1

On occasion when it was just too hot or we needed a change in our play area, I took the car out of the garage and set up a few different play stations in the garage, Along with the fan running of course.
Dinner with the warm glow of oil lamps.
And a very relaxing exciting bubble bath at the end of the day.
This is just a tad late, but I love this birthday pic of daddy and the girls. I have a lot of pictures I want to post that I need to catch up on and I plan on doing that every couple of days until I've gotten caught up on all of our summer pictures.
