Keeping Up With Our Grands

Such busy ages that we are enjoying with our grands. Age 4 and 2 are such active ages. They can really tire out a 70 year old. I’m so thankful they choose to love me and tire me out.

Last Friday big sister had some other appointments so little brother got dropped off at our house for a few hours.

After some raking JJ was very interested in the watering possibilities.

He mastered our new water nozzle pretty quick. It was fun to watch the delight a powerful nozzle gave him.

Dear and I were able to get a lot of weeding done while JJ enjoyed the power of the hose.

Addy enjoyed some time with a homeschool Co-op which she is trying out while little brother was with us.

A big transition in the month of May for our 4 year old was the move up from this toddler bed to…

…this twin bed with new bedding. I think she is pleased.

The end of May we also enjoyed seeing our ‘Coast Kids’ via messenger enjoying a night out together.

We’ve been in the upper 90’s the last couple days. Friday we are supposed to be in the upper 80’s. Hot for Spring so there has been a lot of watering happening in the early hours or late hours.

Today Josh and Laura are driving across the Cascades from the ‘Coast’ for the weekend. We are looking forward to catching up with them and the grands will be thrilled to see Uncle Joshie and Auntie Lolo! A brisket will go on the Traeger early and cook long and slow for dinner here after they arrive.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

  1. Hello,

    Your grandchildren are adorable, love that JJ is helping out with the raking and yard work.
    I hope Addy enjoys her new toddler bed. You are blessed with a beautiful family. Have a great weekend!

  2. Our two Granddaughters are just about the same age as your grands. It’s always a joy as well as a challenge to share time with them. Have a wonderful weekend with your family. They are all so precious!

  3. Grankids grow up even faster than our own kids. 🙂
    We have 4, oldest just turned 30 and the youngest 15 in Dec.
    Watched the third graduate from high school last week on line – she lives in Hawaii.

  4. It’s so much fun spending time with the little grands, but you are so right – they do tire one out. Such precious memories. We’re having a 2 year old’s birthday this evening (and a 9 year-old’s since they are just one day apart). Enjoy your weekend.

  5. I don’t have grands, but I remember how my young nephew loved to water everything in sight! You captured great photos of JJs excitement. I love Addys new bedding. The little elephants are sweet. Sounds like a fun time with the kids and cooking in the grill.

  6. Yes, I know exactly what you mean. The energy of little ones far exceeds the energy of their grandparents! But we do our best . . . and sometimes crash when they leave. It’s all worth it to be involved in their lives though!
