We spent the last few days with my family and my extended family, enjoying
time together and catching up with each other's lives. There were times in the water,
picnics on the grass, swinging at the playgrounds, and cups of coffee
Which included fresh, sweet watermelon...no bib...no plate...what could be better!!!
Hugs are such a special part of being a grandma.
Older cousins helped the younger ones.
Distance keeps us apart much of the year, and makes our times together even more special.
I can't tell you how much I treasured every minute, that I could hold this little guy.
I had not seen our youngest grandson since he was 1 week old. And yes, this
is how I was told that he prefers to drink his bottle:)
The face painters were there, and when asked what he wanted painted
on his handsome little face, the answer was immediate..."a red bear".
No idea as to why this request was made, but a happy red bear walked over
the grounds the rest of the afternoon.
were together on Father's Day. Their dad felt so honored by it all.
In a fast changing world, moments become more valuable. This is what resonates from
my heart today. Don't you find yourself more thankful than ever for simple blessings
in daily life? I sure do!
I look forward to catching up with your blog posts in the next few days, after our home
once again becomes an empty nest.
