I had a birthday present for one of the grandkids and so they came to get it. Instead of wrapping it I sent everyone on a treasure hunt. After that, they stayed and played. Here are some of the photos I took.

These old guns have gotten lots of use through the years. One of the darts has been on our neighbors roof for a year.

This mother of seven was just lucky to find two shoes for the two year old.
Playing Mother May I? I think this was "you may take five giant leaps."

This is the mother of seven of these kids.

I tried to get her catching some air and cut her poor little head off. Sorry Willow.

I love to photograph this kid. Look at those perfect freckles.

If you are ever w/out clothes, rhubarb leaves can substitute.
The baby of the family is learning how to load the gun.

One driver and one rear-engine, the engine helped keep things moving fast with great leg action. A time or two the engine fell off. You just cannot trust these modern vehicles.

Getting ready for a catch.

The man I love. This is the great rhubarb bed.Sleeping sisters.Waking up. Every single get-together has rhubarb eating. First you peel it and salt it.

And then you eat it. Yum! This Bailey boy can out eat everyone when it comes to rhubarb.Eating rhubarb is hard work and requires lots of resting.
It was a great day with 10 of the grandkids here. How I love them.

Eating raw rhubarb? And no stomach aches afterwards?

Looks so fun. Hope you had a wonderful birthday.

That looks like a perfect day! I hope your birthday was perfect, too. I'm glad I finally got to sit on your swings. And, I'm glad to know that rhubarb leaves can double as clothes. I'll make you a pin that matches them if you dare to wear them to church.

That boy is cute. You pick which one I'm talking about.

Now I'm REALLY sad no one called us. We were just sitting around doing nothing on that day. Bummer. I hate bummers.
