One of our many reasons for relocating to Texas (beyond just being close to our kids and grandkids) was to be available to take care of the grandkids for extended periods when our son and daughter-in-law wanted / needed some vacation time.
Even though we spend a lot of time with the grandkids, it’s usually just a couple hours here or there, and ‘entertaining’ isn’t really an issue. I’m not particularly creative at coming up with interesting things to do, so keeping them busy can be quite the challenge! Fortunately they are pretty creative on their own 🙂 and then we have to clean it up!!!
We decided this morning, after a hearty French Toast breakfast, to take a little trip over to our 5th wheel so we could pick up a few forgotten items, and take a walk around. The kids enjoy feeding the ducks (wish I’d gotten pictures), and just running around the lake area!
It was nice enjoying it with them – they found a few bugs that they needed to check out, and noticed some beautiful white geese near the lake. The few turtles that were resting along the lake headed for the deepest part as soon as they heard us coming!
All in all, even though we didn’t do anything extraordinary. we all agreed we had a good time – and to seal the deal Papa took us all out to lunch! Back at home, Josh and I played pirates – I was Izzy!! And Caroline drew a picture for me of our trek around the park, with a treasure at the end of the trail. Notice at the top, it says, “Nana I heart you” – Awwwwww!!!! I love them all so much!!!
Hope the rest of the week goes as well………….
Have a great weekend, and if you are spending it with your grandkids, I hope you’ll have some special adventures together as well! Take care all,
