A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

My Loves

April 12, 2013
Enough about that.....just sayin'

I asked my daughter last night if I could come pick up
the kids this morning for a day with Grandma!
She was grateful to have the morning to catch up and run some errands.
I was grateful to spend time with the little ones
1st on the agenda was (of course) "coffee" at Caribou
Audrey enjoys eating the mini-choc chips and whipped cream off the top
 of her (not-so-hot) Hot Chocolate, which she calls "coffee"
Carson is reaching for grandma's coffee... it'll be awhile buddy  :)

He was happy to play with the toys from Caribou's toy box.

Audrey always has a good time at Caribou.

We spent the morning and early afternoon together, 
Carson had a nap while Audrey played and played and played with me....
There was lot's of make believe, painting and playing with dolls.

 Sweet baby boy, love this little face!
I got a nice shot of him with great lighting to show off his baby blue eyes.

Audrey was beyond excited when I asked her if she would like to stop on the way back home to get her mamma a flower, and even more excited when I told her she could pick one out for herself as well. 
Oh the simple pleasures, and joy in a childs life
I think she smelled every flower in the flower shop  :)


  1. They are both SO sweet. And I love love LOVE that pic of Carson!! WOW!

  2. Thanks Jac', They are pretty special !

  3. Yes Jackie, I won't say anything about the weather either. :( I think it is so special that you get to spend time with your grandchildren like this, you are creating such special memories with them. What a wonderful gift to give your daughter as well. You are a awesome Grandma! That picture of your grandson is beautiful!!! Enjoy your Saturday.
