Granny Camp - It's a Wrap!

 Granny Camp came to a close last night after spaghetti dinner.  Grampy and Granny went up to bed shortly after. Smile.  Yes, tired, but sweetly content.  It was a superb pleasure to love on our two older Ft. Collins grands for three days. 
 The Slip and Slide was a big hit!
 Grampy bought a remote control car.  CB and Finn are good drivers!

 Park fun and MORE park fun!

 Art work. Essential.

 We had a VERY happy 4th!
 The hot  weather is providing garden beauty!

 Neighborhoods all over America produced their own parades.
 There was another park along the parade route.

 And then cousins came to play!

 We had easy meals - lots of food!
 Don't you think wooden blocks are the BEST toy?  
 Another fun park!

 Here is our first grandchild holding number ten, James!  Aw!  In just seven years, ten sweet grands have graced our lives.  I am overwhelmed with thankfulness.
I'm off to the coffee shop to meet a friend for a good gab.  
After that I shall rest.  Thank you for popping by to view the snapshots and read about my Granny shenanigans.  
Calmer activities ahead.

You can almost feel the energy fizzing from those photos. What a wonderful time they had! You must be shattered!

Lisa Richards said...

As those boy grands get older I sense a Grampy Camp component being added. Remote control vehicles! :)
Your teaching skills are really coming in handy. You know how to keep kids enthralled.
Get some rest, Granny! You are very blessed! :)

You deserve rest. The kids had a great time, didn't they? Give me a time and date for the Botanical Gardens. I will be free any day except Thursdays. Will we bring grandchildren? Or just the two of us? I am excited. Just pick a date and we can meet around 10 before it gets too hot.

What a gift to your grandchildren!!!!! I think I'll have to do Grandma Camp when I'm a grandma. As long as I am still young enough I think it would be so much fun!
