With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: At the Park

At the Park

When you wake up to a sky like this...
and a break in the heat and humidity...
you just know it would be a perfect day....
to take a bunch of grandchildren to the park
so they can make silly faces
and do boy stuff

like slamming the ball
like Pop-Pop
ready to catch his fly ball
and lovin' on baby
amused by her complaining about crawling in the grass
a toothless smile

a picnic lunch

watching crystal clear water trickling  in a stream
climbing bars
playing on swings
climbing trees
 splashing in water
Enjoying our daughter
and each other

Jill, Brad and Ryan left yesterday for a week at the beach with their youth group.  Brenna and Shaela are spending the week here with us.  We have a fun filled week planned that includes tea parties, cousin sleep over, cookie making, cake baking, bubble maker constructing, boardwalk visit and a Paris birthday Party for Keri.  Whew... hope I can get a nap or two!

What fun! And bubbles, too?!!! One of my favorite things! Lovely shots and lovely memories for you....

Mildred said...

What wonderful photos Lorraine. I see so much of you and John in your children and grandchildren. John and I were discussing how painful it would be for us to sit on a picnic bench like your one grandson (on his knees!!!) Oh, to be young and flexible again! ha
Have a great week and don't forget to share with us. You look just radiant surrounded by your loved ones.

Hi Lorraine!

I'm glad I read Julie H's comment so I won't feel I'm the only one sappy enough to cry while viewing this post. How truely blessed you are. Although, I don't find it fair that He is giving you THE MOST BEAUTIFUL angels. I'd like to have my share someday. Don't be selfish now!LOL

BTW the funny face one is priceless, they will get such a kick out of it when they're older.

Big hug!

What a great family time and a great way to celebrate a break in the humid days! Looks like those cute kiddos had fun.

Olga said...

Oh, those little ones are adorable. Those big eyes and happy smiles. Have much fun it must be to spend time in a park with such wonderful little companions.

Fun... we love parks. It is so cool to see whent the grandchildren resemble their grandparents. Personally I see the resemblance more often then to their own parents ;)

Laurie said...

What a joy to see you all surrounding each other with love and happiness on each face! I believe I can hear the giggles and squeals...

Have a wonderful week together with these sweet grandchildren that God has blessed you and John with!

In joy,
