My family jokes about the fact that Papa (my dad) is such a saver that there are still items with the moving sticker on them from 1972 when the family moved from Illinois to California. But every once in awhile we hit the jack pot and are glad that he kept something that we would like to use. Oma (my mom) thinks these occurrences are unfortunate since they perpetuate Papa's desire to SAVE every. single. thing.
Not long ago Z-man noticed a hammock down in Papa's storage room. Perfect for our backyard! Indeed it has been the entertainment of the summer for the kids. I always plan on more hammock time with a book in hand but it hasn't happened as much as I'd like.
Yesterday, while taking pictures of Jaci, the hammock turned out to be my favorite backdrop.
So, thanks for saving the hammock, Papa. . .It's been fun for the kids, and a great photo prop too!
P.S. You know it's been a long week when it's 3:00 in the afternoon and you notice you've been wearing your shirt inside out! Yep, that was me!
