Grandpa Jakulewicz had to work in Pueblo for a few days which is about 30-40 minutes from where we live. We met for dinner one night at the Outback Steak house and Lucas was on his best behavior. His favorite things at restaurants are the salt and pepper shakers. The ones he found at the Outback were grinders so they were extra cool!
Grandpa J came back the next evening to spend some time with Lucas and help Mommy with the sprinkler system. Mommy fights with the sprinklers all the time and swears that someone messes with them each time she finally gets them adjusted. Very frustrating but Grandpa came and saved the day (and left Mommy with lots of homework!) Thank you very much for helping Grandpa! It was very appreciated. We didn't get any photos this visit but Lucas came away with a little bubble machine from Grandpa. This is a bubble machine I bought about a year ago and left it at Grandma and Grandpas house. It finally made it back to Colorado Springs and was a brand new toy for Lucas. He was thrilled!
Look at this concentration! He was back to sharpening today and was quite confused why the wood on the colored pencils would not go away. He could see the shavings but wanted the wood part to be gone. After a series of whys, he decided to attack them from another angle. No luck, that wood would not go away!
Today we decided to make Shertzer Chocolate Chip Cookies after nap time. For those who have never had Amy's cookies, you're missing out! You can check out more of Amy's tasty treats at ShertzerTime. She has figured out the high altitude secret and I have no idea what I'm going to do when we live in low land Ohio?! Cookies seemed like a fun idea mostly because the WIND was back and according to the weather man this was supposed to be a wind free day...HA! Here Lucas made sure his bear, Sedrick, could see everything that was going on.
Notice how Sedrick isn't so important when it comes to the tasting part...yummy cookie dough! There was no sharing this part today with our favorite bear.
Oh, the house is back on the market and we are looking for renters again. The folks we had under contract fell through today but I truly believe it was a blessing in disguise. So, if you know of anyone who needs a home in Colorado Springs send them our way!
