A GRAND Easter

IMG_0972We had a FUN-filled Easter road trip (except for the traffic jam) visiting family in NJ, RI, CT and PA. After a week of travelling, we’re back home. It was great to see all our family – especially the grandkids.

Grenville has been posting on our travels. I waited until we were back home because the iPad doesn’t easily allow adding photos and making collages. So, without further ado – here are the grandkids.

At nearly 9 months old, granddaughter Elizabeth (Ellie) is a real charmer who likes to laugh and babble. Of course, we pretend to understand everything she’s saying. Ellie Collage1Can you tell WHO is one of her favorite people ?

They are very cute. Grandkids are great. We had two here with their parents until Wednesday, and then two more and their parents arrived Wednesday and will leave Saturday.

Thanks to both Elaines (Artic View and COuntry Girl)...we had a GRAND time as you could see :-)

Hi Mildred, we think they are cuties too, although Bobby might not appreciate that term applied to him now.

Mellodee, once we sell our eastern shore (VA) home sold we're moving to Nashua, NH.

Mona, you do have a houseful of kids and grandkids - great for you!

Thanks Possum.

Sandra, we did NOT give them the penguin and it is actually Bobby's favorite, but he lets Ellie have it too.

Arija, thankfully we have a few years to go until Bobby becomes a teen.
