Lots of family and fun

 Our younger son left for home this morning so our granddaughter is staying with us the rest of the week by herself which is a first. Today I took her to the library for books and we found another puzzle (500 pieces this time) at the Friends of the Library bookstore. We have two project tables set up for puzzles, legos, art and whatever. We went out for a pizza lunch and then “papa” and she went to the arcade while the pup and I caught up on our sleep!

It’s been a very fun 3 days since they arrived and the pup has handled it all well. Granddaughter is in charge of the clicker when we are doing our training and she has become a very good assistant trainer!

Sunday we went to Mr. Softee for ice cream and then to a fabulous outdoor production of the musical Little Mermaid Jr. The cast ranged from 4 to 18 and were really good. Yesterday we did puzzles and coloring, went swimming in our community pool and the my older son and DIL came over to play and have dinner.

We are thinking that tomorrow morning is miniature golf, home for lunch followed by more pool time and then at home play.

I am so glad we moved back to California even if our attempt to move really close to granddaughter and her family didn’t work out. By the way, they loved their 9 hour train ride from Oakland to Santa Barbara!


  1. Soundslike you all are having a wonderful time. Enjoy.

    God bless.

  2. Grandparent visits are the best for everyone involved! Our girls always wanted a bubble bath in the whirlpool tub, fingers and toes polished, and reading Mrs. Pigglewiggle.

  3. Glad you're getting some bonding time in before school starts.
