Summer Visit - Chapter 3: Deck Time

Our Cottage is small, very small.
We knew we had to expand our living area before the
Boise Bunch arrived.
The only way was to use our deck. 
Tom and I got busy painting and arranging furniture.
Then we were ready.

We used our deck for everything and
the weather was perfect.


Sister time

        Catching up              Talking and Stories
 Tea Parties                     Coloring

Pictures, lots of pictures. 

~ Sometimes we expanded beyond the deck. ~

 Lunch on the lawn.

Daydreaming, on the lawn.

Playing with mommy's old Barbies,
with a blanket spread out, on the lawn.

All memories now.


  1. Christine it looks like you and Tom had a blast. What a wonderful family! Thanks for sharing those memories with us. Have a great weekend. Judy

  2. Aw...cute! What great family photos. Glad the weather cooperated for you so you could do lots of living outside!

  3. I love outside living and it looks as if you did a lot of it. How great the weather cooperated. Everyone seems to have had a lot of fun.

    P.S. Memories are good.

  4. It looks like you all had a wonderful visit! Some precious memories to cherish for sure!

  5. Nothing like being with family and so glad the weather cooperated.

  6. What a wonderful way to expand the house--love, love the deck! You and Tom are such great grandparents. I have an attic full of my daughter's old toys. We figured we'd have a grandchild by now, but sugar plum has been the reason we brought a few down, and I guess we'll keep dragging things out through the coming years. SO many memories in those old toys, huh?

  7. Dear Christine...such a beautiful family! So many precious memories!
