Fun with Grandkids

My daughter had a room to paint--a new tenant moving into one of her apartments.  She needed some kid free time to do that and I needed a grandchildren fix.

Isn't it great how these things work out?

I took the drive down.  It was a lovely spring day in Vermont.  I love that tender new green and all the spring blossoms--lots of tulips and crab apples in bloom. Also the ubiquitous dandelion.





I took the kids out to lunch at Applebee's.  We went to the movie theater and watched The Jungle Book.  I loved it!  My tender hearted grandson said it was a lot of violence, but he knew all along the boy would be okay because it was a movie and that's how they work.

After the movie we took a drive to Killington and saw that there are still people skiing.

On the way home, we stopped and played a round of mini golf.  I don't have pictures because I tend to concentrate on the kids and forget about documentation for later.  (A characteristic my former special education directors will no doubt recognize.)

We picked up Amy, who had finished her painting and was just cleaning up, and all went out for ice cream--three vanilla cones and one chocolate in a cup.



It was dark, cold, and rainy by the time I got home, but I had a fun day.

  1. What fun. I know the grands are glad for you to be back in town. It seems we have so little time with them before they are grown and have busy lives. I try to make every visit count even if it's just a meaningful conversation or a walk through the neighborhood. This is the best time when they're around.

  5. Glad for the JUNGLE BOOK review. My granddaughter liked it as well but alas she did not go with me. She went with one of her friends. Now I don't know who will go with me.

  10. You're back in VT - I've gotten behind since I was traveling. Sounds like a busy, fun day. I bet you slept well that night (unless the chocolate kept you awake).
