How Does One Entertain the Grands During Their Summer Stay



Eat Al Fresco in the garden whenever possible


take them to the beach


and on Concorde


to the paddling pool


the adventure playground


swimming in the sea


to play on the bridge of an ancient Destroyer


and row an ancient Lifeboat


not to mention going down into an ancient Submarine


hoping Grandma will get through the hatch


fun on the ancient sailing ship too
and much,  much more
pretty high on the list was riding their scooters up and down the street with children from church and inviting them in to play

Sara said...

What lucky grandchildren you have. Everyone seems to be having lots of fun, including the grandparents! That is marvelous.

Vee said...

Wow! You two are amazing! That's a lot of going and doing! Well done...now you get to rest for the next time. =D

Looks like you had a lot of fun with those grandchildren this summer. So nice you could do so much with them.

Your grandkids are getting so big Barbara, I'm sure they had wonderful visits with both of you and will have many happy memories of the summer.

Needled Mom said...

It sounds like a fun filled and active summer holiday for the children - filled with memories for them.

Barbara,
Your grandchildren are beautiful! I remember Oliver as a baby...my how quickly time passes.

Looks like you all had a wonderful time together.

I still think you are the bravest lady!

Blessings, Betty

You have been voted "The World's Greatest" Grandparents for sure!

I can see how much you both enjoy entertaining your grands. I always put aside housework and just entertained mine...looks like you are doing the same. Such wonderful plans you had for them.
Rest will come when they leave.

I think Grandma looks pretty trim and will get through the hatch without difficulty. All that activity! Are you now exhausted? What wonderful memories you created for your sweet grandchildren.

Adrienne said...

What fun! I'd like to come 'play' at your house!

This all sounds and looks such fun!
I echo Lorrie's comment above.
I hope you are having a well-deserved rest this week.
The schools go back here about now.
I feel very relieved that my teaching days are over.

Oh, I wish mine were able to visit me this summer! They are 20 hours away! I can think of all kinds of things to do! I would have them helping me with all kinds of farm stuff they could learn--like today I picked peaches off my tree. I think they would have loved to help! Looks like you had a lot of fun. Blessings!

And then sleep for a week?! Looks as if you all had a wonderful time!

Scriptor Senex said...

It's not fair - no one ever took me on Concorde! What a great set of things you found to do. You'd better start planning next year's soon!

bristowmom said...

It looks like you kept them very well entertained!

My husband was a submariner. Twice we have toured subs - I don't know how anyone lives in them for 3 months!

Barbara, I think you did it up right! Blessings on you and your family!

Looks like you had a lovely time with your grands, and they are lucky to have grandparents who enjoy their company and take them to so many neat places.
