Summertime and the living is........ FUN... with grandkids!!
Tim, the kids, and I had two great visits this summer with Amanda and the grandkids. Matthew was able to come down for Rebekah's graduation but most of the time, he was in Russian language school in Texas, so Amanda was on her own for a few months before they packed up and moved to North Carolina. She visited her parents in Sugar Land and her grandmother in Huntsville too.
In May, right after graduation, we realized that it was Colin's birthday and since I had been rather busy with the graduation, I forgot all about getting stuff to celebrate his birthday. I was busily sewing his gift but had not thought about having cake and candles ready. (I learned how to make an allergen free birthday cake this May!)
Brennan, I'm afraid this is one toy you won't be taking home with you!
One nice thing about being at Grandma's is that their Aunt Rebekah and Uncles' Jacob and Christian are here to play with them when everyone else is tired out!
Jacob took good care of Brennan while Amanda and Christian entertained Colin when we went to Candy Cane Park one afternoon.
However, sometimes the most entertaining part of the visit was just eating lunch!
Colin thought lunchtime was a lot of fun too...especially if Grandma had the camera..which of course I did!!
And after lunch, we all watched Winnie the Pooh until Brenan fell asleep. And sometimes Grandpa would read Colin a story from the same book that Grandpa, Daddy, and Uncle Jacob all loved...Richard Scary's Best Storybook ever!
There's nothing quite like a summer with grandbabies!
