Seeing the world in the eyes of children. Our wonderful grand kids Carter & Griffin

Wow, if today is any indication of how the rest of the Labor Day Weekend is going to be it is going to be a great one. It started with Joan and I going to Carter's soccer game. They say at their age who wins or loses doesn't matter but the other team didn't score and his team scored 4 goals. LOL

After the game we went to McDonalds for a quick lunch and brought Carter and Griffin home to spend the night with us. While Griffin napped Joan and I played the card game Crazy Eight with Carter, we laughed till we had tears in our eyes we were having so much fun

When you live in Florida for 38 years like I have we sometimes just take the great things we have here for granted. When you start seeing things through the eyes of Grand Kids you gain a brand new perspective of just how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place. Juno Beach is about 15 to 20 minutes from the house and it is such a beautiful place. We spent a couple of hours there and had so much fun. Nothing picks up my spirits like seeing them have so much fun and laughing hysterically.

We came home and while Nana was making us a delicious supper the three of us since we were already dirty and wet had water pistol battles. Griffin loves to shoot others but not to thrilled to get shot back. LOL Once in awhile they get on each others nerves but mostly the relationship between Big Brother and Little Brother is such a heart warming thing for me to see.

After a wonderful supper and showers and baths they zonked out as they were exhausted and Papa decided to put his feelings in writing in his BLOG while I was still on such an emotional high.

I tell them all the time but I just want to say it again, Thank You Barb and Brett for allowing Carter and Griffin to be such a big part of our lives.
