    Wink Being Grandma!

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm trying to check in here at WHL when I get the chance, but I'm busy enjoying being Grandma right now.
    David, my 13 year old grandson, flew in from Texas on Monday. He's keeping me busy.
    Thursday, Kayla and her 7 year old, Kyle will arrive from Denver.
    We'll be busy doing all the fun tourist stuff and I'll be soaking up the two boys.
    I'll be checking in when I can, but life will be busy for a while.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    Savor every minute of it! As you know, they grow up so fast as there may come a time in the not so distant future that summer break will mean summer jobs and college classes

    Have a great time!

    Have fun and enjoy them now. My first set are now teenagers and not as much fun. Dealing with the emergence to adulthood is hard for them.

    Have fun and get lots of hugsp

    Everyone is gone and I'm recovering.
    We explored San Francisco, went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and toured the NPS campus. One day, we drove up to Santa Cruz and took the steam train up the mountain into the redwoods. That afternoon, we drove down the mountain to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk and let the boys swim in the ocean and ride the rides on the boardwalk. They wore Grandma out. Even my dog was totally worn out. Conner and I both slept most of the day yesterday.
    I love to see the grandkids come, but I also love to see 'em go!
    Hugs,
    Marla

    Sounds fun, but totally exhausting!

    We were in Santa Cruz last weekend and did The Boardwalk on Saturday.....small world! We dined at Cafe Cruz on Saturday night for a belated anniversary dinner as Superman was pretty gimpy on the actual date. It was delicious! Now, if I could only figure out how to make their Cabernet Reduction Sauce....

    Glad you had great time with the kids and took the time to rest up yesterday. You may need a few more R&R days to totally recover. Those young'uns have endless energy!
