Summer Memories

The days are shorter, the nights are cooler, vacation is over and I miss the kids.
We have six grandchildren to share between the two of us and we were extremely blessed to have five of them visit us in California this summer. Our summer was filled with laughter, joy and excitement over new adventures. I miss the kids.
Ocean waves, mountain camp outs, fishing, horseback riding, learning 'the cowboy way' from Grandpa Jerry, sleeping out, panning for gold, and wearing out Nana! I treasure the memories....
Each one of you is such a pleasure and a treasure and I am so thankful to have you as my Grandchild. I miss you and love you.

Summer goes by way too fast, doesn't it! You were one busy Nana this summer! I'll bet you sleep like a hibernating bear this winter.

Ooooooooh ... I've got tears welling in my eyes. How sweet to have a grandma and grandpa that love you so, so much! You've given me some pretty nifty ideas to tuck away for that someday-in-the-future event called grandparenting. You're COOL! You're FUN! You're SUPER-grandma. : )

I love all the pictures! Well... maybe not the snake one. LOL! Your grandkids will really treasure all those memories. My favorite picture is the one of the kids asleep on the porch on cots. That is adorable!
