the first of the season...

The sun was shining. 
It felt like spring...
and so the word went out to the family.
Meet you in the backyard for a wiener roast...tonight!

Those who were free came...
and had a swinging good time!

The grands from next door came for a visit earlier in the afternoon...
and suggested that it would be the perfect day for a wiener roast.

I had to break the news to them that we were planning to have one...
but without them, since they had other plans

It seems we'll be having another one sometime soon!

Have a wonderful day...


  1. First wiener roast of the season..spring is here:) Everything looks so green. Here we still have snow although grass is showing here and there.

  2. OH how fun! I'm sure the little ones that missed this one will be eagerly waiting for the next one. Scot and I ate our first supper outside last night too. The views from our balcony were snow covered Mt Cheam and a wiener roast been enjoyed in the farmers field behind us. We have our own planned for this weekend. Love your swings!

  3. What a perfect day for a weiner roast. We (he) worked outside in shirt sleeves all day. Sitting out side drinking coffee is a sure sign spring is on the way.

  4. Spring is definitely in the air. I'm itching to get out into the yard. A weiner roast sounds like a lot of fun!

  5. Woohoo! May there be many more. I think we might have to add a wiener roast to our list for this year!

  6. I love always, your photos ! Love that the neighboring grans just show up too :-)

    Enjoy a beautiful day in your paradise !


  7. Yes, and another one right after that, and again, and all through the spring and summer because that's the kind of grandparents you and Elmer are. Love it!

  8. Judy you must love being so close to your grandchildren. It's wonderful to hear that it's time to be eating outside again. Lots of fun and special memories for your grandchildren!

  9. The kind of thing I'm looking forward to this summer.

  10. Yes, Judy, it was a beautiful spring day to be outside. Great weiner roast/swining weather! We did some digging in the veggie garden in the afternoon, and the evening stayed wonderful. Yet, when 'E' and I went for a walk at noon, we were bundled up with scarves and toques, as the wind was biting, with the snow still not far away on the near moountains. We get quite a wind on our road! Dairymary

  11. How much fun for you guys! We aren't exactly in wiener roast weather's snowing to beat the band! I guess we will be enjoying snow cones! LOL! Enjoy your banana belt!

  12. Wow! Spring really has arrived for you. A wiener roast already, what fun! Actually, what wouldn't be fun with views like you have! I venture to guess the littles will soon be invited back for their own wiener roast.

  13. Sounds like fun!I bet those little ones were disappointed, but, if I know you, you'll make it up to them!

  14. A wiener roast is a fine way to welcome outdoor fun!

    Our weather turned cold again..and some snow in the suburban areas. Spring warmth is still keeping us waiting.

  15. Great minds think alike. We had a wonderful wiener roast tonight and sat outside till 7:30 pm. Cool winds, down jacket, big fire...just like camping.
    The weather has been just perfect.

  16. Your photos were so lovely and gorgeous. I am pretty sure that the kids love this. Spring is fast approaching and not just the kids but also the adults.

  17. laughing, when I got to jer and bron's today the first thing ryder said to me was "don't worry, we're going to have another wiener with the WHOLE family."
