An Awesome Weekend With Liam

Spending quality time with family is priceless. I especially enjoyed this weekend visit with Jessi, Liam and Trevor--here's a little taste of the fun I had (we did so much more, but these are the highlights with Liam).

Liam swam, and swam, and swam. He's like a fish without gills.


Each morning, he counted down the the number of sleepovers we had left. This picture is him telling me "two days". 

He painted--he's very serious about his artwork!

Liam's responsible to help feeding all the pets each day (he takes this responsibility seriously). Here he is bringing Marty the turtle a kibble of cat food (a weekly protein).
And a hibiscus flower treat.
Marty gobbled most of his flower.

Liam takes his time preparing meals for the cats (there are three) and dogs (two); this household loves animals... 
...here are Patches (on the left, recently adopted) and Stitch, waiting patiently.

They built a fence to plant flowers and veggies...
 ...Liam figured out how to move this 8 foot lattice stretch...very clever process with dropping one side and swinging the other over to "walk" it to where it needed to be.
Trevor and Jessi were proud of their work,...as soon as they let Stitch out of the house, he jumped the fence (somehow, we never anticipate that).

This morning, Liam entertained me with poses for the camera...
 
 

The weekend passed far too quickly, but I did enjoy every minute of it. Memories forever!

Thanks for reading my blog, see you tomorrow,
Lise

Glad it was a great weekend. When I was little, I had a desert tortoise. Her (his?) name was Pansy because he would stop by the row of flowers on the way from the back yard to the side yard to eat grass. Someone must have seen him in the side yard next to the sidewalk. He came up missing. It was hard to lose him at that young age. - Margy

What a fun time you must have had. Liam is adorable.

Thank you Linda. He really is!

I know Patti, and when he looks at you with them and smiles, he can have almost anything he wants, LOL!

That's so sad Margy, it's terrible to loose a pet but especially when they are petnapped.

Thanks NCmountainwoman, he's a cutie:)

He's adorable! What a sweet and wonderful weekend! My purest delight is our grandson! Spending time with he and Yvonne and Jack mean SOOO much to me, and I( am fortunate we live so close and see them almost every day. Don't know what I'd do without my "Grandbaby Boy!"
