Do You Want To Ride Or Walk?

I had a plan to get a lot done 
late yesterday afternoon
but I quickly abandoned all plans.

We had to pick Ria up from school
and then
Mama's Boy stopped by with
little CJK.
As soon as they ate he could not
wait to get 
OUHTSYDE.

What's out there?
Why all the RIDERS, of course.
PAPA! RIDE!
BEACH-PAPA-BEACH
Why mow grass when you can drive in the water?
When Ria FINALLY gets a turn to ride
CJK takes a little walk-with Daddy not to far behind.
He leaves the beach to check the playhouse and
discovers another 
OLD RIDE 
in there.
(my goal is to reline this now that I have removed the old liner)
He only rides long enough to get to the 
FRONT YARD 
so he can get back on the tractor with Papa.
I think he is a little nervous when 
Papa starts backing up!
Soon, it is time to go home.
He does NOT like to leave Nana's house.
He might get a little reprieve because
he will ride home with Daddy.
AND
WHERE IS Daddy?
THERE HE IS!
Enjoying a LITTLE ride of his own!
Oh- I am so gonna get it when he sees this.

oh how wonderful to live so close to water that you can ride your mower to it. Love the look on his face when backing up. how cute!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Enjoying the moment- that's the most important thing to do! Looks like fun- I never though about riding a lawn mower along the waters edge but I can imagine how fun it would be especially for the kids! Great memories!

It WAS a beautiful day yesterday...I would have liked a ride in the water!

Laura @ Top This Top That said...

never a dull moment around that place, is there!:)

Cranberry Morning said...

Hehehehe. Love that last shot! And the others are too cute. What is it with kids and riding lawn mowers! Our grands love to even just sit on the thing when it's not even running. But the 10 year old loves driving it. Thinks he's in heaven! (He'll soon outgrow that when he learns that it's work.)

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

Awww, what fun! Of course, riding on the beach and in the water is more fun than cutting the grass! Papa is a great sport and super Papa! Yes, you're in trouble alright! Fun memories!

Tete said...

LOL- yeah, you might get it for that one. Looks like a fun day there. No wonder you have trouble getting things done.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

LOL! It is our job as parents to embarrass our children, Diana. No matter how old they get! : )

Fairhope Supply Co. said...

Your son gets his sense of humor from you! The grandson gets his cuteness from you!

Beth said...

Love those photos. Yes, you will probably get an 'Oh Mom' out of that picture.

Suzan Sweatman said...

Is that an old wicker pram?
I. WANT. IT !!!
Have a wonderful day Diana :)

LV said...

What a fun and great way to spend the day. Your little fellow is adorable.

I love the look on his face when he is 'driving' the tractor, pure enjoyment. His Daddy looks like he is enjoying himself too; they never really grow up!!!

lynn said...

when a grand doesn't want to leave his grandparents, well, life doesn't get any better than that, does it:) enjoy!

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

Good reason to abandon work plans...spending time with your beautiful grandchildren!

Stephanie said...

Oh my, how fun! Can I go for a ride in the water too? I remember when I lived in Canada my dad would drive in the mini van along the beach and my 7 year old heart would panic that we were going to sink into the lake. Good times. . . :) Hugs to you, Diana!

Donna said...

Well I must say I've never seen a John Deere lawn mower riding the waves, Diana! Too funny. It is so good to see little CJK happy and healthy. He is just darling! And I have a feeling his Daddy needs a bigger bike:)

Lucille said...

Lovely family pics, Diana! Looks like you all had a wonderful day!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Fun times!! I bet you love living so close to the water. It looks very relaxing. All boys seem to love mower rides, don't they? Mine actually LIKE mowing the yard now that they have a riding mower. :)

camp and cottage living said...

Making memories with Papa! what can be better?
We don't have a riding mower, but wheel barrows are fun for toting the g'kids.

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

Oh there is nothing like living near the water, it must feel like you are on vacation 24/7 (except in the winter when the everything is ice and snow of course)

Vee said...

Lots of fun! Your little grandson is looking so very well and I find myself praising God all over again!

bj said...

Oh! To live by the water! I have to admit this is the first time I've ever seen a lawn mower surfing the waves ;-) Looks like a fun time!

My "grandkids" love to ride on the lawnmower tractor when he is out on it. They laugh and smile. Good fun!

Jen Vandervoort said...

Every time I see a photo of that water I'm amazed, you have waves?

Your Grands are so cute, I can totally understand the allure of water and tractor.

Thank you so much for the kind words, and prayers.

J said...

LOL I soooo love seeing pictures of the era when us grandmas were young parents! I can put myself right in the photo - clothes, hairstyles, toys....fun!
And what a cute, CUTE little grandson! Be glad I don't live next door to you. I think I'd hug him to death!

Catherine said...

That is a wonderful day! Lots of beautiful memories. The little ones seem to love every minute and Daddy seems to be having some fun too.
Have a great weekend. Blessings, Catherine

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

What a cutie! Looks like a wonderful spring day!

Patty Patterson said...

I think Papa there needs a Razor or maybe a golf cart or something. Does that lawn mover even go fast? And with a large Razor everyone could ride!

Chatty Crone said...

What a wonderful family life.

Jen Ham said...

How neat you live so close to the water! Lucky girl! Lucky grandkids to have grandparents like you...truly. xoxo Jen
