Summer Means Having Meals on the Deck



It is just so relaxing outside with the trees full of leaves and the flowers full of blooms that I decided to have lunch with AJ on the deck. Since John was working and it was just me and my granddaughter, we had it on that little wooden table. We will just have a light lunch, ham sandwich, some chips and iced tea.


She was patiently waiting as I prepared our sandwiches.


This corner of the deck will be the perfect setting.


Can you see my secret garden in the background down below?




Ham with mayo, that's how she likes it, no other condiments or veggies. I served the iced tea in a mermaid pitcher on a mermaid tray. Doesn't the color look refreshing? It even matches the pool water?




There she is all happy, waiting patiently for us to eat.




She asked me how can mermaids give birth to baby mermaids if they have no butts. LOL! I didn't quite know how to answer that. I told her to ask "Uncle John" when he comes home. He is the doctor, he should know.



Aaaah! Refreshing iced tea!



Sandwich on the shell bordered plate is all gone!







AJ can now play, after all she is content and happy and no longer hungry.

This is her last weekend with us and we are surely going to miss that girl!



"Summer to me means having a lot of meals on the deck and porch."
