Grandchildren .....first full day

On the first day of their Florida vacation, the grands always wake up wanting to swim! Being an obliging Nana, I put my bathing suit on and into the pool we went! Ashley is at that age where floating is her thing....Adam....he's all boy. Cannon balls all the way!


Here he goes!





Sister just looks on, relaxing with a small float behind her.

Aiming for the hula hoop. By the way, it was a bull's eye!

Uncle David let Ashley back his car and move it in the driveway while Nana stood biting her nails. She did a great job. Maybe she'll get her license soon. She's required to take a class before getting her license and there just hasn't been time, so she can't drive on the street. Sigh of relief here.

Nana and the grands. I like to get a picture right off in case we don't have another opportunity.

Uncle David, Ashley, Grandma Duncan and Adam. We went to visit their great grandma, my mama. She was so happy to see them.

Below is what my girl would do 24/7 if given the opportunity. She is a reader and reads several books a week. She was making this face because she didn't want me to record her reading. She's supposed to do more than read while she's here.

Once again quiet settles over the house as everyone heads off to bed. Tomorrow will be another fun day. If truth be known, I could just sit for a while and soak them in!

I HOPE THAT EVERY DAY IS FULL OF THE HAPPIEST OF TIMES FOR YOU AND THE GRANDS. I PRAY THAT ALL YOU DO TOGETHER WIL BE REMEMBERED IN THE 'WONDERFUL MEMORIES' BOOK FOREVER.

Sorry, didn't know caps was on...it's not like I meant to be yelling or anything! Have fun!

She's a girl after my own heart - just floating and reading - my idea of a perfect vacation!

Love that picture she didn't want you to take.
