The Weekend

On Saturday we arrived to watch our grands at 8:00am and said goodbye to their mommy and daddy at 8:30. After playing for awhile boredom set in and since it was still drizzly outside we pulled out the Play Dough for some creative endeavors.

The sun broke through so after cleaning up the dough we bundled up for some outdoor time.

Our son rigged up a way to add a second swing so JJ and Addy could swing at the same time. It’s ingenious and we enjoyed singing lots of songs like Old MacDonald, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Jesus Loves the Little Children, 6 Little Ducks, The Wiseman Built His House Upon the Rock, The B-I-B-L-E, The Muffin Man, This Little Light of Mine.

Off the swings and into the sand.

Sand is nice but mud is muddy.

We played until it was time for lunch so we kicked off as much mud as we could, washed up our hands and got lunch ready.

Hide and Seek, A non Easter Egg Hunt, pretend play in Addy’s room and then it was time for a relaxing time watching Pippa the Pig until Mommy and Daddy arrived just before nap time. We said our goodbyes and headed home with our trailer.

We decided to have an early dinner at our non-favorite Mexican Restaurant in Colville. It was fun to see a couple of our friends there and my cousin with her family. It was good to catch up with them.

Later in the day our Daughter-in-law on the Coast sent these beautiful images with the snow geese congregating in Mount Vernon, Washington State.

Thank you Laura for sharing these amazing captures with me and letting me share them.

Our Sunday was quiet. We had a guest speaker at church and then we bumped into a couple from church and had lunch with them in Kettle Falls. Home again for more quiet looking out the window at hail, snow, hail and rain. Very undecided weather. Looks like we’ll have a lot more mud to deal with for a while.

Hope your weekend was good.

  1. Hello,

    It is wonderful to spend time with the grandchildren. They are cuties. Love the shots of the snow geese.
    Take care, have a happy day and a great new week!

  2. Sounds like a lovely weekend! Good times with the grands . . . you guys are fun grandparents! I love the double swings, as well as your choice of swinging songs!

    We had Mexican on Friday night, a new hot water heater (not “fun,” but oh-so-happy to have hot water!), church, a Sunday drive, and ice cream on the way home. Not a bad weekend!

  3. So nice that you can spend so much time with your grandkids. Great idea with the swings. I spent many hours playing with play dough with my kids. 🙂

  4. Those snow geese are amazing!
    It is wonderful to have time and energy to give to young grandchildren. They keep you young!
    Finding it hard to believe that you are anywhere near this approaching milestone. 🧁☕️



  5. Babysitting together sure makes time go faster! As good as time with those littles can be, I remember looking at my watch and feeling overwhemed with how slow time was moving along. That double swing is just the best!!
