Grandpa Smokey

This is Johns Grandpa Smokey. He is an amazing, hard working man (that where John gets it from). The other day the kids and I went to visit him and his wife Cappy to help them pick some oranges. Me and the kids were so glad we went to spend time with them and look forward to our next visit.
These pictures are of Grandpa loading his fireplace, Grandpas birdhouses he made, Grandpa and his dogie, and Grandpa and Grandma Cappy's garden. Grandpa and Cappy never quit! They always stay busy. Johns Grandpa is on Dialysis 3x's a week but yet manages to keep his yard and garden pristine. These two put us to shame. If they aren't out in the yard planting something or picking weeds they are inside cleaning, or taking care of their animals. Grandpa still plits his own woods and make sure the fire is going when it is cold. And Grandma Cappy is like the energizer bunny, she keeps going and going. She still quilts (all by hand) and cooks everyday. It amazes me how much they do.
Jacob and Trenton had a blast picking oranges and lemons for Grandpa. Jacob loved getting up on the ladder and he enjoyed using the orange picker also.
The oranges were so yummy! What a treat!
