LEARNING TO BE A GRANDPARENT

We are getting the hang of being Grandparents.
We go to the park.....

 then onto the Grove mall....

 where Fox shows us where the 'yo yo' shop is (frozen yogurt).....

and Granddaddy finds a coffee shop. Then home for lunch and a sleep.

In the afternoon we play in the back yard.

  2. OMG - you look aged ( at last!)
    The last photo will also (alas for you) go to the memory box. ha ha!
    Fancy having little Fox have to push you around!!! Tut Tut!
    I shall make no comment on Grossvati and his coffee mug! Words fail me.
    Anyhow, it does appear that you and the dear old, Grossvati, are having a wonderful time.
    Keep enjoying the wonderful experience, and pray that Carol-Anne on arrival will take up some of the duties. You will need all the strength possible, when you arrive back here with you "gardening duties"!!!
    Great blog "Sis", I don't know how you manage it all.

  9. What a blessed and amazing time, it looks like your grandson is wearing you both out! Who napped? ;-) Precious times indeed!

  10. It looks to me that you are doing a great job of learning to be grandparents. I do think, however, that Grandpa looks as happy with his coffee as Fox does with his yo-yo.

  11. Being a grandparent is exhausting. I find consecutive days a challenge. I enjoy it, but hang out for the midday sleep come the second day!

    1. I think we will be pooped after 3weeks of it. I too look forward to afternoon nap time. But it is very rewarding. Fox is such a great kid.

    2. Could not agree more. Totally rewarding, and would not be without for quids. Enjoy while you can.

  12. Hello Diane, I remember those times, it is a gogo...time, but lots of fun and bonding with the grandchildren.

  13. You are so lucky, I could never have children so therefore no grandchildren. Enjoy, Diane

  16. Hi Diane, You don't have to 'learn' to be a grandparent... It just comes naturally... What you do need though is a dose of extra energy!!!! Bet you and Bill both sleep well at nights.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  19. Hi Diane, I see you and Bill are keeping very busy! And probably everyone needs a nice, long nap when afternoon rolls around....

  24. I'm glad you get an afternoon sleep! Grandparenting is hard work every step of the way but such a privilege too.

  25. I am in Asterdam to babysit for 2 days, but it rains and I can't do anything but staying inside ! Fortunately he is a very easy going baby, when the parents are not there, lol !
    Very cute pictures of your grandparent's job !
