The grandbabies are waking up. All five of them came to the end of summer sleepover at Grampy and Grammy's yesterday. We had dinner at McDonald's and played in the park. Played games and ate ice cream at 10:00 at night. Then there were the movies to watch. Batman was the first choice and one by one they crashed. Never did get to the rest. They have decided that next summer they want to ride the train to Seattle and spend the day. So we told Noah, who is 2 1/2 that he must be done with diapers by then. No presure there, he has a year cause this Grammy isn't changing diapers in Seattle.
This will be a busy year for the four oldest, their parents are torn between celebrating and crying. The fourth starts school school this week. Just leaves Noah to hang out with his Grammy at the shop. Can't believe they've grown up so fast. Our oldest has been selected to spend a month in Europe next summer with one of the exchange programs. She is already to go. It will be interesting to see if mom and dad can let go.
Time for Grampy's pancakes and sausage then they are going to help scrub the two awesome old wooden bird cages I found this weekend.

Sidewalk Sale

This Saturday is the day. It's our annual sidewalk sale in historic downtown Puyallup. I'm cleaning out the back room. Nothing is safe from the sale table. I've cleaned out my fabric stash. Yup, that is always fun. Now I will have room for more.You'll find purses, ribbon flowers, Christmas items furniture, and all sorts of fun stuff on the sidewalk this Saturday at Horatio's. The weather is going to be great. Look forward to seeing you.
