pool time!

mom got a wading pool for jasper lilith to play in and play in it she did!  we spent our mornings out in the water and our afternoons out with the horses 🙂

look at all the balls!  jasper collected them from all over to put in the pool with her…  and jasper had to dress up the bathing suit with a little bling by putting one of her bead necklaces on…

she liked to put all the balls in the pool, sit around for a minute or two, then throw all the balls out of the pool and then go get them again to start the process all over…  and over… and over!

all i did was sit on a lounge chair, laugh and take pictures – she entertained herself!

aw, man, isn’t she a doll?

so the first day started out with a swimsuit on…  the second day i just put the swim diaper on her and didn’t worry about the bathing suit…

and then the third day, i just left her in her very own skin suit 🙂 

i had to put some shoes on her to keep her cute feet from being stickered up but other than that, the girl just stayed naked 🙂 

i mean, who is going to see her?  the dogs, cats and horses? 

of course, jasper didn’t want to put her clothes back on once we came in the house but as i told her, potty training is the way to get naked in the house for longer than a couple of minutes!

kuga the cat and jasper the little girl…

kuga is a great cat (one of those rare ones that loves people and affection like a dog does) and she was super cool with jasper…  even with jasper lilith following her around…  everywhere…  even under the table 🙂

green grass and fresh air…

jasper lilith and i went to my mom’s this past week and had a wonderful time!!  since she doesn’t live in a big heat sink, the temperatures there are cooler, windier and much more pleasant to be outside in…we slept with our windows open and the a/c off – it is that cool…

i took tons of pictures and it was a struggle to figure out which ones i wanted to post and which ones i didn’t – i would have posted them all if i could!

mom and i got a chance to catch up during the evenings once jasper lilith was asleep – we would take our cuppa and sit on the back porch or the front porch and talk, stare at the stars and enjoy the breeze…  i saw a falling star and made a wish 🙂  mom, i love when you are out of school and can stay up past 9 pm!!  yet another reason to love the summer 🙂

jasper got her nana during the day (yeah, i was the third wheel there!) but since i love to watch them together, i can’t complain!  mom kept jasper busy and running and i just tagged along and took the pictures…  plus jasper caught up with richard, the dogs, heidi and tigger (poor dogs, the little girl ran them ragged – i imagine they took their first deep breath of the week once she left), the cats, kuga and smokey joe and who else mom?  oh yeah, sunny and satin (the horses)!  i guess that is it but that is alot of catching up to do between the two legged and the four legged!

jasper is always a big help – she likes to be in the middle of everything and is observant (and smart) enough to figure out how we are doing whatever we are doing!  so here she is helping her nana prepare the horse feed buckets…

jasper is mixing the grains and such…  and having a great time doing it (with her nana supervising)…

and here is where jasper lilith’s little size gets in the way – she wants to do what we are doing (which was pick up the heavy buckets full of feed) and she can’t…  so she gets a bit upset…  yeah, a bit 🙂

and here is the reward!  watching the horses eat their food!  she loves watching the horses eat and they are easy to pet then, too!

jasper lilith drags this wagon everywhere and likes to sit in it as much as she likes to pull it but this is the first time that she has pulled it up on the chair and sat in it like this…

i guess she is done contemplating…

it looks like a bit of a struggle, doesn’t it?  who does she think she is?  supergirl?  oh, that’s right – she is

get on down with your bad self…

here is jasper lilith rocking it out to the tune of…  hm, i don’t know, can you call that a tune?  well, anyway, she is rocking!

north texas scottish festival…

the scottish festival was this weekend – the weather obliged us and stayed at an overcast and windy 92 degrees but it was still a little on the warm side…  we had a fun time and jasper lilith enjoyed all the pipes, fiddles, drums and flute music that is typically in the air at faires and festivals…  but mostly jasper enjoyed the dogs – she didn’t understand why she couldn’t bet every single one but enjoy them she did!

jon is cheesing it up for the camera…  or is he saying, “hurry up and take the picture, daune” ? hmmm…

ah, here we go…  a much more normal jon face although jasper is still paying attention to the fiddle music going on behind her 🙂
