The Crazy Hot Summer Visit with Grandma & Grandpa Fisher


Please Click on the Images if You Wanna See Larger Versions

Grandma & Grandpa arrive and are immediately put to work pushing children on swings.

This went on late into the evening.

 

The next morning we got to see a show...

Sasha showed Grandma & Grandpa her magic act!

 

Sasha is a top notch illusionist.  Anya's trick is swinging random objects at speeds unable to be captured on camera.

Grandma & Grandpa take us to the pool at their hotel.

Sasha gets her floaties ready.

Looks like everybody is suited up and ready to go.

OK...  To the pools!

This hotel had a cool indoor / outdoor pool.  Nice and cool on this 112 degree day.

Holly and Sasha swim the channel between the pools.

There's a cute little swimmer!

 

Grandpa pulls lifeguard duty.

 

Back in the room for a swim break.

And a juicebox break.

And a happy child smile break.

Grandpa uses his wide angle view to capture one side of my office.  As you can see, it's a serious place of business.

Grandma & Grandpa arrived between Sasha and Anya's birthdays so we had a mid month celebration.

And the presents flowed in abundance!

It was like Christmas!

 

Toys, Toys, Toys...  and Noise, Noise, NOISE!

Sasha finally gets the butterfly garden that she's "wanted for her whole life"

Grandpa strikes his cute/coy pose?.

And the presents keep coming!

We had to bring in a bulldozer later in the day to remove all the debris.

Anya opens her big Mud Pie Table.  That has been a big hit this summer.

 

Thanks for all the presents Grandma & Grandpa.  We love presents...and you, of course!

 

The grown ups busy liberating toys from their dense and complicated Chinese packaging constraints.

 

Time for tea with Grandpa!

And as usual, after all the wonderful presents are open, the kid is more interested in the box.

Breakfast with Grandma & Grandpa!

Hey Grandma, hurry up and finish...

We want to break out the new playdough!

The playdough ice cream fountain makes all kinds of yummy treats that are not safe to eat!

But it's fun and you can make a horrible mess so that's cool.

 

Aunt Mary's present to the kids is a wish fulfilled.  A visit to Build-a-Bear.

 

This is something the girls ask to do every 2 or 3 days.

And finally, someone said yes.  Hurray for Aunt Mary!

Hi pretty girl!

For the last night of the visit we head down for dinner and a walk on the boardwalk.  This is Anya in her standard "restaurant mode".  She hates going out to eat.

 

Grandma & Grandpa bought strollers for the Build-a-Bears.

So we could take them on our boardwalk stroll.

Sasha leads Anya and the bears down a dark scary alley, but Grandma puts them back on the path.

It was a nice night for a walk.  The temperature had dropped down into the high 90's.

Anya is a good mommy to her new kitty.

The bears seemed to enjoy their first walk on the boardwalk.

 

The next morning it was time to go.

Sasha send off Grandma & Grandpa with her crazy good Hoola Hoop skills.

Hugs for Sasha.

Hugs for Anya.

 

Bye Bye Grandma & Grandpa!  We had a great visit.  Come play with us again!
