The Kids Visit
My seven-year-old grand daughter and two-year-old grand son were her for three nights. We picked them up in Springfield, VT on the way home from Easter dinner in Connecticut. We watched Alvin and the Chipmunks, Elmo's World, and some TV show about a family of wizards that I've forgotten the name of. We read some stories and drew lots of pictures. We spent a great deal of time at the playground and went to visit the horses up the road. More time spent running around outside than watching TV--a successful visit. The added bonus--no trips to McDonald's. Kristen was disappointed that Tuesday's night supper was chicken since she was "in the mood for seafood." I asked if by "seafood" she meant fish sticks, but no--lobster or shrimp.
