Seventeen days of adventure

I’ve long said being a grandfather is one of the great roles of my life.  These kids are smart, energetic, full of laughs and innocent as can be! Innocence is, in my opinion, one of the great strengths of childhood and should be protected, as long as possible, at all costs.

Our three grandchildren are on the move and so in the midst of that move they came to be with us for a few days of adventure.  We did lego, coloured, made crafts, ran through the sprinkler, ate freezies, had lots of cool snacks, went for walks, played with the peddle tractor, had the little cars out driving around the mat (in the shade), blew bubbles, played (toy) golf, read books, went out for kid’s meals, and played Barbies.

Did we do it all? Probably not but we sure did lots of great things. It was an adventure.  Did I say that already?

We managed to squeeze in a few days at the trailer too!  That included the pool, the beach, bbq’s and sleeping together in the trailer.  Did you know kid’s love using the toilet in a trailer?!

Here’s a small video from our time at the trailer!  You can see more on my channel.

Ted and Beth turn 5

It seems remarkable to me that Ted and Beth, often referred to as the twins, are now 5 years of age.  We regret that they live so far away and we don’t get to see them too often, but thankfully technology helps close the gap a bit.  I will be in NL in early April so I get to see them, but it is still too far for our liking!

The birthday party took place at Gail and Jeff’s home so that is delightful for them. Ted and Beth were all dressed up – and of course, if you are 5 and you have a birthday you need to get presents.

And speaking of family…here’s me with Leanne and Catherine for a family portrait. The old black and white photo makes it seem like 50 years ago…and in fact it it! 1969!!

What is odd to me is that I can remember the photo being taken like it was yesterday. I remember Cath being upset, Leanne was a little trooper and I was hot!!  The photo lamps made the room feel like the tropics.  Hardly seems like it could be 50 years, but it is!
