Garden helper

Anna, my 2 yr old niece (well, almost 2)

And once you've worked up a sweat picking tomatoes, you gotta take a refreshing dip in the pool.

It's always so much fun to be able to have our niece and nephew at our house.  They are endlessly fascinated with the horses, chickens, geese, llamas and sheep.  John's favorite past time is to watch the sheep run when they come around, but it's not something I let him do, so he tries to pretend he's going to do something else and then walks close to the sheep to watch them scatter.  They both like to collect eggs, but neither of them understand that you can't just throw the eggs in the bucket!  We just laugh under our hands, because it's not really that big a deal that only about half of the eggs make it through their collecting efforts.  
Now that we have some garden bounty to pick, maybe we can save a few of the eggs.  
My son is 23, so it's refreshing to have the awe and wonder of a small child around our place again.  The simplest thing you do makes you seem as if you are a super hero!  And everyone needs to believe in super heroes.
Hope everyone will get some relief from the oppressive heat that's headed our way again in a day or two, keep those sheep and critters in the shade.  
TaTa for now.
