Being a grandma is fun!

Two of our grandsons, Theo and Wyatt, spent the weekend at MIL's. (She begged Meredith to get their daddy to let MIL have the boys. LOL!) So, Hubby and I went over there Sunday morning, around 9am. Theo came running out the door, saying it must be 9 bacause that is what time we were coming.

He was so excited that we were going to take him to the park. It is really funny, since MIL took them to Hermann Park....a huge place....and to ride the train there. Theo loves that train, but he was just as excited to see us and go to a little park. We went to nice little park near MIL's. Since she still lives in the house Hubby grew up in, we were in his old stomping grounds. It was near the high school, so I am thinking it might have been a nice "make out place" back in the olden days. LOL! Anyway, here are a couple of pics of my "boys".

After we played for a couple of hours, we headed back to MIL's and were happily surprised that Chance had come by. He deploys next Saturday, on his 22nd birthday, to Afghanistan. We knew he would be in town this weekend to see his little boy, but we didn't expect to see him, since we will be going to see him off next weekend. But MIL will not be going as she says it is too sad to see him go. We were surprised and pleased that he stopped by to see MIL, but he laughed and said that he told her last Sunday he would come by. I laughed, too, since she called me every day last week to see if I had heard from him and was he coming over. Despite her insistance that he did NOT tell her, we have a lovely visit. Here we are in the backyard.

So, we had a great visit with some grandkids and a big kid and had a lovely Sunday. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

It was a beautiful day here! Though it did get a little warm in the sun. When we were in the shade, it was lovely.

Glad you had a great weekend, A.Marie!

Your family is perfect! Seriously, I would need to pinch a few cheeks. I'm so glad that everyone got together.
Have a wonderful week!

Frances said...

Oh, SonyaAnn, far from perfect. But we are pretty happy most of the time.

Frances said...

Thanks, McVal! Our family did make some beautiful babies. (Not me, but the rest of them. LOL!)
