Kg Turns Seventeen in Quarantine

With the almost daily changes in the local Covid recommendations, we’ve been staying safe. It’s a bit easier now that many PPE items are back on the shelves, including a misting disinfectant from Home Depot.

With the house carefully cleaned, we still set up outside on the patio for a late birthday lunch. Kg requested cheeseburgers from the BBQ.  Easy to do.

For a fun game Fran thought a Jumbo Jenga set would be entertaining.  She was right!

The length of a Jenga block is 3x its width.  I used 2x3 pine studs, thus the length needed to be 7.5 inches.  Each stud yields 12 blocks, making 60 blocks vs. the customary 54. 


Kami brought down beans from her garden, lots of beans!  I didn't plant any so they are most appreciated.


But I have ample jalapenos, which was a fair exchange for the beans.  She makes a jalapeno pomegranate jam that's awesome!  So I'll take that trade anytime! 


The girls challenged dad to Jenga.  Aj carefully lifts her choice to the top.

Despite the height Kg makes a successful choice.

Dad on the other hand should know better than to challenge girl power!

Of course there were a few presents.

Oblivious to the party our local Anna hummingbird continued to use and guard his 'personal' feeder.

Stay Safe y lave sus manos!

    1. It was indeed a lot of fun. But then it's always fun to have the kids down.

  4. How wonderful to spend time with family in these very weird times. We're missing our west coast family and friends...but looks like we're going to be in Florida for a long time to come. That giant Jenga is so cool!

    1. I use the old joke with my daughter "If I'd known the grand-girls would be so much fun, I'd had them first!" She has one of the best eye-roll ready for the comment.
      I do hope you can enjoy your west coast family soon - save time for a Jumbo Jenga challenge and a glass of wine.
