Grandpa's girl

(Warning - lots of pictures...)
We had Alaina overnight on Friday, and Bob had Saturday off. He works a lot of Saturdays so this was a rare treat! He spent lots of time with her, saying he had lots to do, but this was more important! (And more fun too)


They started by walking around the back yard.
 

And they came upon the swingset.  "Grandpa, I need a ride!"

 

A trip down the slide is necessary too!

 

Time to check out the little boy that lives in the flower beds.

 

Back in the garage, Alaina decided that she really likes the lawn tractor.

 

After all that, they needed a little rest.

 

However, Alaina doesn't sit long and she decided to do a little yard work of her own.

 

She got grandpa to give her a ride around the front yard.

 

Time to sit down again and see how things are looking.

 

Grandpa and his girl - they make a fine team!

Well, I'm done for the day. That child is SHOOTING UP and looking so much like YOU, Mari! What a little dollbaby. I can tell Bob is in heaven escorting that little angel around the yard. What precious times and irreplaceable memories.
