Charlie comes for a three day visit - July 2008

Grandma thought it would be a good idea to have little Charlie come for a visit before the end of the summer break.  Her other Grandma was in Columbia and was good enough to drop her off here in St. Louis on her way back to her home.  It was hot and humid for two of the days and it rained the rest of the time.  We still managed to have a good time with lots of fun activities, special Charlie food stuff, and a romp in the pool with her cousins.

What do you do when it's hot and humid? You cartwheel past the sprinkler in the back yard of course! Like the energizer bunny, Charlie just keeps going, and going and going.

Grandpa is a slave driver! Here he has the little munchkin sweeping down the driveway. Our home is "blessed" with a zillion very messy black walnut trees.

There are rewards for such work however! Here Charlie is munching down on a bowl of ice cream .
