My otherwise mundane afternoon got a fun visit! My daughter-in-law, my oldest granddaughter, and both of my great-grandchildren came to explore tie-dyeing.
Everyone arrives fresh and ready to dye…Granddaughter Angel, great-grand Micheal, great-grand Amarra, and daughter-in-law Leanne. 🙂
This is little Michael … my youngest great-grand
Apparently Amarrra was more tired than she appeared — she wasted no time finding a place to nap.
Meanwhile, I was mixing dyes so Angel could dye some baby shirts she brought.
You know… passing on a family craft (yes, that’s me behind the mask, in case anyone wonders). 🙂
Pulling a very sticky strip of tape off a jar of dye. Very sticky. Both gloves were getting more and more tangled; finally gloves and tape were all remove and disposed of. Hehehehe.
I did the one before, and I was showing her how to do this one herself …..
which she did!
And then Amarra got to help on the last one!
And then Grampa Ray got to sit and snuzzle with the great-grands. Well, at least for a little while. Soon enough they were scrambling around exploring what this old man’s house is full of while the grown-ups had a chance to visit a while.
All in all, a fun afternoon for Grampa Ray. Not sure the little ones will remember, but I don’t get to see any of the family very often so I make the most of it while I can.
