A Casualty Of "The Grands"...

I have a barrel fountain, located in a corner, next to our front porch.  The barrel fountain sits there, pumping water daily, making soothing water sounds.  The dogs and cats also use the barrel as a place to steal a cool drink of water during the hot summer days.

I have several "statues" sitting in the corner, surrounding the barrel fountain.  The little deer are one of those statues.  Notice those rocks in the photo?  Yes, the ones hiding under the newly fallen pine straw, that needs to be removed...

Well those rocks are like magnets to grandson, Cade!  He loves nothing better than picking them up, and tossing them into the barrel fountain!  He gets great joy from watching the water splash up as the rocks go "kersplash" and disappear to the bottom of the barrel!

Did you happen to notice the missing ear on one of those cute little deer?  Guess who missed the barrel with a rock or two?!  This is the second time Mr. Deer has had his ear knocked off! "E-pa" has already glued Mr. Deer's ear back on once...It lasted about two weeks!  I guess Cade needs to work on his aim.

I'm a new follower from the Follow Along Friday hop. I'm sorry I laughed at your earless deer. Have my kids been at your house? Great blog! Check out mine when you get a chance.

It always makes me smile to see what little kids really enjoy the most. Our grand daughter is having a blast collecting sticks from the back yard and grouping them all together. Simple joys...we can learn a lot from our grand kids.
