With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Grandchildren and Children

Grandchildren and Children

We had a great week with kids.
Jill and family are heading back to Central New York tomorrow.
How we enjoyed every minute they were here!
John and Brad worked really hard doing some
landscaping in the front yard on Wednesday.
After a long day and warm (80 degree) temps, Jamie and kids
joined us for Pizza and Cheesesteaks for dinner and
ice-cream cones for dessert.
It was a perfect evening to eat outside and play ball!

Baby Cambrie toddled about.
John took a second vacation day today and we headed to Philly
 to see the Liberty Bell
 and the Betsy Ross House
This evening, the little ones were left with a babysitter and we all met at Outback Steak House for a late dinner.  It was so much fun!
It was hard getting pictures in the subdued light, but everyone was together
and
my heart was very happy!

I love all your wonderful photos ~ perfect memories of a very special week. It's obvious that a fun time was had by all ~ especially Pop-Pop as he peeked out the window!
It's so nice to have them ALL around. When that happens here, I love to sit back and gaze at them all and just savor all the Lord has blessed me with. I know you do the same.

Have a joy-filled weekend! I hope it's a restful one too. : )

Happy Easter!

Awww, that's a wonderful family you have, Loretta! It looks so much warmer there with the kidlets sitting outside in shorts.

This just looks like SUCH a wonderful time! How blessed you are. I LOVE the pics of all the grands eating their cones...I have the hardest time getting all of mine to pose together like that...eating an ice cream cone would be soo perfect as it would certainly make them sit in one place for a few minutes anyway, haha. I am leaving here this morning with a happy heart! HUGS

Oh your grand kids are just so cute. I feel like I'm starting to recognize them and know who they are and that's scary cause I have 17 of my own to keep track of! I'm so glad you had a party all week. That's what it's all about. Happy Easter!

Every one of them as pretty (or handsome) as
a picture! You are so blessed and I know you
know it.
Hoping all of you have the most blessed of
Easters.

Wonderful photos. Look at all those precious little faces. It sounds like you had a great time with everyone there. I'm a little jealous of your 80 degree weather though :)

Hi Lorraine. How lucky are you?! It's such a treat to have everyone you love all in one place. How nice of you to share this. Happy to see you at Tangled Happy. Thanks for your nice comment! :)
