27 Uninterrupted Hours

We spent 27 uninterrupted hours with our two oldest grandchildren yesterday. As we drove from their house to ours, we stopped for an ice cream cone. It was important to begin the afternoon well! We played hard, made crafts, read books, watched silly movies, went to three parks, had a picnic, took the canoe out on the lake, and enjoyed a wonderful time together. We invited their parents and baby sister over for dinner so they could go home with them. We didn't want to take them back home. (sad face) People always talk about creating memories for children, something that is very important but memories are also essential for grandparents and we thoroughly reveled in making some new ones! Such bliss!
