Pretend Grandma for a day!

For the start of the Labor Day weekend, my niece Jessica and her family came to watch their oldest boy Christian play soccer and they stayed at our house! So we got out the beds and wondered what they would like to play, eat, or do.

This is Gene, Christian's dad and Jessica's husband (Sheila our black lab found an instant friend as he'll throw sticks and run with her)

This is Jessica swallowing ice-cream! Very organized and fun mom

This is Victoria with melting ice-cream in her mouth

This is the soccer playing Christian

This is Greysen watching his brother play

Elise is very funny and has a cute laugh

This is lovable Garath

I realized how fun it is to have some little ones come and visit and try out the beds and ask unique questions. I found out about wheat allergies and quickly re-vamped what I would offer for breakfast. This is soooo different from worrying what my kids were doing or not doing, and now I understand when my mother-in-law used to say, "don't worry about it I'll pick it up after you leave", because it really is a joy having them. I can't wait to see them again when they come for the next tournament.

... so no pasta, bread, or pancakes....

You and Jeffrey will make great grandparents! It is simply a joy. A well kept secret but I am trying hard to spread the truth. It is the best part of life!

If Zack and I make it to Norther Cali sometime, you can adopt us for some time. :)
