Funniest Grandma Sharon Video

The funniest thing that happened at Avery's party was my video of Rachel Eliana playing in the water. I had squatted down to video her and fell backwards onto my rear, all the time not being able to turn the video off....so here is the results!

And of course...cheer for the Wisconsin Badgers!!!!

Sprinkler system fun???

Bob and I went to Fort Collins to help put a sprinkler system in Rachel and Brian's yard. What we thought originally would only take maybe three days turned into six. What a job, but of course I had the best job of all. I got to babysit Avery, Malachi and Rachel Eliana while everyone else was outside in the hot, hot weather. Of course, chasing a 2 1/2 year old, a 1 year old and a fast crawling 11 month old wasn't a walk in the park.hahaha! But, all kidding aside, we had a wonderful time with our children and grandchildren. Bob worked extremely hard to get the system in and did a great job. Also, thank the Lord for Aaron, our son-in-law, who worked the trencher. Wow, I don't know what we would have done if he hadn't been there to trench for us.
(Love you..Aaron!!)
All in all everything got done and we are thankful!

Sprinkle system......work work work!!!!
