Grandpa built HT a sand box down at the shore and he played in it every day we were there.
Loved playing on the tractor and riding on the bobcat.
Went on the boat most evenings. We enjoyed the boat very much and if you asked HT if he wanted to go for a ride on Grandpa's boat, he was quick to correct you and tell you it was a "pontoon boat".
"Why's dat bug on your finger Grandpa?"
The dragonflies were all over the place, which meant that the mosquitos were kept in check, dragonflies love mosquitos. I have also read that they are a sign of a clean water source. I was delighted and surprised that this one posed for a picture.
Aunt Pam and HT went fishing off the dock and he caught his first fish, wasn't sure what to do with it and was more concerned about the worm.
On July 4th my in-laws hosted a family party at their house so we got to see lots of family that we wouldn't have seen otherwise.
Chris, Nicole and little Grace.
Aunt Pam and Uncle Steve
Aunt Jody and Uncle Jim
Uncle Len, cousins Dean and Mark
Grandpa (or should I say the Hunchback of Dilworth Presbyterian) and HT ringing the church bell.
HT telling Great Grandpa Thorson about his trains.
The view just east of my in-laws place. Beautiful!
I probably could have and should have broken this up into more than one post, but it's too late now. If MN weren't soooo cold in the winter, I might consider moving there.
