Fun with Grandpa

Being a grandparent is such a joy! I love spending time with Alaina, and I also love seeing Bob enjoying her. She has him wrapped pretty tightly around her little finger. It's a good thing she's not with us all the time or he would have her really spoiled.   :)
Here's a few pictures of them playing the other night.  (Take note of the one ponytail, sticking straight up in the air.  That's what happens when you fall asleep in the car seat)



It's so fun to watch Grandpa build towers and then get to know them down!


Alaina loves books and is always bringing them to us to be read to.



When Grandpa reads and adds motion to the story, it's even more fun!


Every once in a while, you need to take a little break...



and check what's happening outside.


And if you're really lucky, Grandpa will share his ice cream with you!

Super cute! We don't have the luxury of grandkids just yet because we are still raising our youngest at 14 still.

Thank you for sharing yours with all of us. Such a cutie!

Hi Mari, I haven't visited much lately-so sorry, sometimes it is hard to get around to everyone. I had forgotten that we both have granddaughters name Alaina. Mine is three and her momma(my girl)is expecting another any day now. I loved seeing the photos of your hubby playing with her-she is a doll.
Hugs today, Noreen
