On Memorial Day my Daughter-in-Law's cousins came down from "Holy" Toledo to get Jack to do some Chiro magic on Leisy's hip. She's running a marathon very soon and has had some problems. But I guess it's better..it should be because my Hubby is the King of Chiropractic. I swear, he's a miracle worker! Anyway, we really enjoyed having Leisy, Kent and Zeb and Ike come for the day. Those two little boys are the cutest. I stole these pics from her blog. I just thought this was the sweetest shot of them putting their hands on their hearts when the flag passed by. Now those are patriotic kiddos...who's parents taught them well. I've come to really love this family. They may not be related by blood, but I'm claiming them anyway. I love their cousin Amy..My Daughter-in-Law, so I can love them too..right?
After the parade Leisy and Kent and their two cuties came back to the Pines for a cookout and some outdoor fun. I had a blast with Zeb and Ike in the baby pool and more fun squirting them with the hose. Here they are hiding from me..or so they think! I did laugh at the condition of the playhouse. It's been apart all winter and needs a quick paint job..sorta looks like a "shack out back"! Not to mention it was covered in grass after I mowed!
Last but not least we have a genuine "People at Wal-Mart" hero..Mountain Man. He hangs around the Wal-Mart and strums his guitar and sings about Jesus and says hi to everyone and is always happy, a teensy bit strange, and heck, I just think he's gotta message he can't bear to not shout out. Unfortunately, people started complaining about him and Wal-Mart made him go across the parking lot and he's not allowed near the entrance anymore. Now come on Wally World, have you seen the people who come into your store? If not, go online and find out...Mountain Man is down right normal compared to them!
