In following the tradition of Clare we return again to E Friday, where I post three photos of my darling granddaughter E, because VG really likes to look at these pics. Well, I like to look at them also.
E likes to have breakfast outside when she is at our house. After we moved in (a little over four years ago) we converted the massive grass filled yard over to desert landscaping. Well, the water bill was horrendous and the LV water authority basically paid us to do it, so it didn’t take much to decide that yes, we would take there money and work our butts off. Part of the conversion resulted in a nice big concrete patio along the back of our house, extending to the side providing a nice sitting area outside of our kitchen. We added a nice high metal roof to keep the sun off (rain, what rain?) and I converted the kitchen window into French doors, providing easy access. We got a nice glass table and padded outdoor chairs and here we are, sitting outside having breakfast almost every day of the year.
So here is E, enjoying her blueberries. She was in a blueberry phase, don’t know what she is into now, but since we could get fresh ones and she demanded them that is what was provided.
The lady bug sippy cup is from my favorite place, Star*bucks. She likes it, along with the pickle spoon Grammy found someplace. And underneath is the nice blue seat that boosts her up high.
She doesn’t always agree to it, but here is her Elmo bib. Yes, Elmo is her current fav. Please don’t mention that purple dinosaur, we have not (and will not) introduce her to that thing. Maybe Dora though.
Hey, that does make our back yard look pretty green. Well, we didn’t get rid of all of the grass, we left a little half circle out front and this strip under the trees out back. This was all before E of course, but it did work out nicely to have grass and shade for her to play in.
And sunshine, of course this is Vegas so sunshine is kind of the default condition.
