Heaps of Sunshine

 Oh, the weather is HOT here in Denver and Granny Camp is occurring mostly outside by the blow-up pools!  
 Here they are!  Only Atticus is missing because he's staying home with his mommy.  Grand number 9 is due in September, so she's with her mommy, too!
 Finn is doing very well with his harem.  
 Just a little remembering.  Last year I took my niece's old Ann out of a box and began revamping her for Amy's youngest daughter, Johanna.  Remember how Ann sunbathed after her bath?  Doesn't her dress look pretty hanging on the line?  Oh, I do love Ann VERY much, in all shapes and sizes.
I'm having a bit of a quiet time just now.  We decided that during Aria's (she's two) nap, the two "big kids" could enjoy an hour and a half of electronic game playing.  That's it, though.  So they are quite occupied and Granny is having a "feet up" and guzzling cold water.  
I do love the daily routine with children.  God's grace is sufficient and I am pleased that I can keep up the pace.  
Time for a bit of doodling.
Sending huge LOVE your way and thanks for checking in on Granny Camp!  (HUG and KISS!)

I would be in the paddling pool I think if I was there Pom Pom! Lovely little people, I bet they love granny camp. Betty

I do hope Anne does not get sunburned. She is a redhead after all, and everyone knows what delicate skin they have. She's lucky, though, to be made of cloth. I think that helps.

Lots of summer fun is going on there. Looks like you run a very wonderful Granny Camp.

What a blessing to have grandchildren. I bet you are the most fun Grandma on the block. Thanks for your prayers. I know Coloradans have been living with the wildfires longer than we have this summer.

So I thought your first picture was sweet but when I saw your second picture I chocked on the strawberry I was eating. Why did I not realize that you would have SEVEN little campers? Wow, oh wow. I admire you like all the sunshine in the world. You are a spunky granny and I want to be just like you.

Pom Pom, you are so blessed!! What a wonderful bunch of grands! They are all so close in age and will have such fun and special memories to share. Good idea for a feet up water guzzling time.

It's so good to be able to stop by and visit your blog again! I have missed it!!

They'll never forget the fun they had at Granny's house! And this production will get larger and larger!! You had better stay very young. Put your feet up every chance you get! :D
(Hope you got in some good doodling time!)

The sunbathing doll is a real hit. ALL those kiddos...do hope you have some help! They look like they are having the times of the lives and will always remember Granny Camp!

Hot here in GJ, too, with 100's.

Granny Camp looks like a fun time. What wonderful memories these little ones will have of their loving granny. They are all adorable.

Hello Pom Pom just wondering how come your grass is so green & beautiful in the middle of summer like that?!! You'll be pleased you planted white petunias then I expect...nice cool colour. Those fires in the Colorado mountains don't look too good...pretty scary. Golly you're amazing!! What a precious, precious legacy for those grandies. Will grace extend to a Granny Camp of 100 when you're 80?! Perhaps there'll be slight adjustments ; ) Much love Gathering Katie x0x0x

Granny Camp looks like so much fun! I can't believe Aria is 2! I'm sure she was just born six months ago! Freezing cold and rainy here. Soak up the sun for me x x
