A CUP OF TEA AND A GOOD SIT DOWN

One of my first Grandma duties while in LA, was to take Banjo for a haircut.
It was more like Banjo taking me to the hairdressers. This little 3 year old took me by the hand and  showed me the way down Melrose Ave to the shop where he has his hair cut.  


 Isn't he an angel?

 Another day we all went down Melrose Ave to the children's shoe shop for new shoes. Banjo soon decided on his new Crocs but Fox took a little longer.

Meanwhile Grandma tried some arty shots.

Nearly everyday we took the children to one of the many playgrounds in LA. This one had pony rides and a little train.
 Fox was proud to go with the older kids and do some trotting.


 Banjo didn't like it when he was younger but he enjoyed it on this day.

 I wonder what he's thinking?

Then it was "all aboard" for a train ride around the park. Fox was allowed to make the announcement over the PA system. After a snack it was time to go home for Banjo's nap and Grandma's cup of tea and a good sit down. It sure is fun but tiring playing with the grandkids.

  1. Good to see Banjo on a horse.
    Who knows one day we may see him
    in a remake of that Aussie film of riders
    in the high country down Mt Kosciuszko way.
    Buggered if I can remember the name of the film or the poem.
    Cheers

    1. Thanks Diane - Almost drove me "bananas" trying to remember.
      Woke up about 2.00 am as my memory cells came to action.
      However I decided I'd stay in bed - hoping you'd know or someone
      else in case I had forgotten again. Should have been easy,

  2. Hello Diane, It may have been exhausting but I am sure you loved every minute of being with your cute grandsons. Fox looks very comfortable riding on the horse. Banjo looks adorable with his new haircut. They are growing up so fast, handsome boys. Have a happy day!

  9. Not only does he look like an angel! A lot of little boys do not take haircuts so well. Just ask my hairdresser daughter. Those boys must bring you so much joy. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

  20. I wonder if Banjo will insist that he waits until you come back for his next haircut. [ That's the case with one of my grandsons so he has longish hair when I arrive.] Grandkids know how to make the most of separations! Lovely photos of your boys. See how they grow!
