A Very Good Day!

Deviled egg delight
yummy way to start the day
yellow fuzzy chick

A kiss by the pool
hamburgers sizzling on grill
root beer floats must wait


Watermelon cools
sticky sweetness dribbles down
a July scorcher


I really enjoyed this 4th of July because now we have the added entertainment of TK. I know I'm bias but he has personality to spare and is always performing. It was 104 degrees out back so we set up his pool under the gazebo. Dave grilled while TK's mom and dad chased each other with the hose. I was hand fed chips by TK and recieved a kiss after every thank you. I'm soaking up these kisses because they won't always come this freely. TK also learned that with bare feet on a brick patio he had to run over the sunny parts and he could walk in the shady spots (too funny to watch!). He is very tough and not whiny. If he heard Justin Timberlake on the stereo (Summer Love) he would stop everything and go into his hip hop moves (his parents are not fond of Timberlake, but TK is). He really has some moves and is a huge fan of "So You Think You Can Dance."

While the evening was winding down a realtor showed up to show the house. Everyone jumped into action. Dave grabbed Nikki, Jess and I straightened up rooms when they were looking outside and TK's dad had gathered TK stuff. It was amazing teamwork! Even TK stopped to chat with them, stalling, so we could make the house nice. Who looks at houses on holidays? We get no action on our open house and we begin to put our guard down and boom. No offer either...grrr!

I really enjoyed the day! I hope yours was special too. :)

You couldn't help but have a great holiday with TK there--what a cutie!

I'm sorry you didn't get an offer yesterday, but maybe they'll think it over and decide it's just the love nest they've been looking for.

I love your new "silent movie" slide show in your side bar.

How sweet is he? And baby kisses are the best!
I am so glad you had a wonderful day, Tammy- and I love the little haikus with each picture!

Clare said...

Your haiku are great! And I always love your photos of TK -- he cracks me up and is such a sweetheart. I love watching little kids eat -- the way they push the food into their mouths with their entire hand is priceless. I'm so happy you had a nice day.
:)

Oh, those little boy kisses are so precious - and you're right, they're gone all too soon.

Hope the house traffic will pick up and an offer come rolling in :)

Jimmy said...

for a little guy that cute, I'd put up with Timberlake myself, lol.
Glad you had a good day!

That was a very delightful account. Soon he will grow up and those days would be gone. Best time to enjoy him.

Sweet photos.

I swear that TK looks like a bad ass UFC fighter in that first pic...not so much by the last one:)

Rethabile said...

Sounds like it was quite a day. Wish you many more.

Joyful haiku!
Tiny hugs and kisses are so rewarding.

We harvested currants...lots of currants. I sunburned my arms...doesn't hurt though as I have put lots of "self-healing" lotion on. We had a family get together.

Your 4th had lots of cherishable memories. I hope the house sells soon.

Tabor said...

I do so love grandchildren...they are just as good as those first love affairs we had way back when. I am so happy for you!

Jana B said...

Awwww... what an awesome day of TK-ness!!!!

That is too wierd about people house-hunting on a holiday...

Tinker said...

Playing catch-up now that I have a modem again - glad you had such a nice 4th - though what a panic that must have been at the end of the day! And it's not just your bias - TK IS Adorable with a capital A! XOXO
