I Couldn't Have Had More Fun

I really couldn't have...I had sooooooooo much fun. I got home late Wednesday after my 10 day 11 night stay in Birmingham. I was pooped though, I can tell you that...I had to admit that I'm getting old...I realized why we had our children when we were much younger...I remembered 18 month old little boys have way more energy than their grandmothers...but all that said...I couldn't have had more fun.

We went out to lunch on Father's Day
and after lunch I took Hampton home, Josh, Katie, Katie's mom and dad all went to the house and worked until about 8:30. Hampton and I had a very fun afternoon and evening.

Katie's mom took the whole week off to help Katie paint...and as every project goes...they started out by deciding they were going to paint the kitchen and the dining room...well those rooms looked so good it made everything else look not so good...the living room was next...then Hampton's room...the spare room...Katie and Josh's room...yes they ended up painting the entire downstairs. It does look wonderful. Hampton discovered that the paint can makes a great seat.

Not much quilty happened while I was gone...I did get a little handwork done and a binding on but you know I can do that anytime....I spent time pushing Hampton on his new ride...he loved his car

We blew lots of bubbles

We made trains out of boxes

We spent lots of time swinging on the swing in the new backyard Oh and the slide is tons of fun too

So you see...I really did have fun!

Your darling blond grandbaby boy is growing up! Bubbles, swings, boxes, cars...boys will be boys! Cute outfit with sandals and all. Irresistible. Glad you had some grandma time with him.

Gail said...

oh, he's gotten so big!! Bet you enjoyed every sweet second.

Judy said...

I can see all the fun in that beautiful smile! Glad you had a great time!

Karen said...

Who is going to entertain him now? Glad you enjoyed taking care of Hampton. I know that feeling of getting older and why we have our children when we can still chase around after them. I know Josh & Katie appreciated your help.
Would you rather have been painting or taking care of Hampton?? I think I know the answer.

Oh my goodness! Hampton certainly has grown - he's more toddler than baby now. I absolutely LOVE all the photos! I can tell you had a great time - how could you not? I'm sure you miss each other terribly, too.

Love Hampton's new wheels - to cute and sporty. What a sweet little guy he is - he looks so squeezable and I bet Grandma gave him lots and lots of kisses - how could you resist that face. Glad you had a wonderful time.

Hugs - karen
