Grand Getaway

Recent weekend getaways included a trip to RI for a dual celebration, Mother's Day and a First Communion for Andrew, the son of a family friend. He looked quite grown-up in a rented mini-tuxedo.

It was also the same weekend as Mothers' Day and we visited with the grandkids and their mother, Shannon who also attended the event.
Grandson Bobby will be 12 years old in December. Granddaughter Ellie will be celebrating her 8th birthday in July. They can be quite loving to one another (but not always).

There was also some grandpa time for Grenville with both grandkids.
Youngest granddaughter Lilliana (17 months) and her mother, Coleen, celebrated Mothers' Day in PA. We'll be visiting with them in early June. She does have very large blue eyes, like her parents.

All three grandchildren seem to have grown more every time we see them and spending time with them is priceless

This Memorial Day weekend we will take time to remember those who died while serving in our armed forces. In our family, Uncle Red (Pete) died in naval service during WW II.

I guess you find it difficult to part with the grankids. The baby girl is just adorable, how she looks and plays...
May you derive much satisfaction from them!

Always fun to see how they have grown. When I first met Bobby, he was in a stroller!
That little one always has such interesting expressions. The eyes of an old soul.

That young man is so dapper on the day of his first communion. Every time you post pictures of your grandchildren I feel older. Bobbie and Ellie were so little just yesterday. Lilliana was not even a thought yet. They are all so beautiful.

Time flies, doesn't it?

Your grandchildren are growing up. All three are beautiful...although the young man would prefer handsome, I'm sure ;-) We agree that spending time with our Grands certainly IS priceless!
Happy Memorial Day to you!

Beautiful photographs and I specially liked the little lad in his tuxedo. What a great little guy he looks.

It's always nice to get away for a few days and even better to see family. The grandkids are very cute and I agree, a tux does make Andrew look so much older. Looks like a fun time. Hope you have a great new week and have enjoyed your weekend. Hugs-Erika
