Grandkids time!

We finished up some last minute cleaning and laundry because Jocelyn, Ronan and Aenea were due in on Tuesday or Wednesday. They actually got in very late Tuesday. We spent a lot of time visiting until we were all about dead from lack of sleep. We went to bed and we stayed there as well because I thought Jocelyn might need some help the next morning after such a long drive.

I can't remember what we did every day. . . they just blur one into the other, but I'm pretty sure Wednesday they just crashed and we enjoyed having them there and playing so we could be entertained! The kids got along great with the dogs but the dogs were seeking out the quiet corners before long. LOL

We all went down to Claypool one day, actually we went on two occasions, so my parents could see them. Jocelyn really wanted to see them as well. They are the only grandparents she has left and the only great-grandparents the kids have. Mom and Dad really enjoyed seeing them. My mom loves the little ones and she had a great time with Aenea. Nita and Kelly both came over too, so the kids got to see them as well. We had fun taking pictures and visiting.

One day Jocelyn, the kids and I went to the Kalamazoo Air Zoo. It's really a museum of planes and aviation. It's not very big, but it is geared to kids, with a few rides and some planes and cockpits they could sit in. Ronan enjoyed those as did Aenea. it was a bit of a ride up there, but we had a good time and the kids enjoyed it.

My niece Michelle and her daughers, Kirstin and Kira came over one evening to visit. I had seen them at their garage sale a few weeks ago. Butterscotch really took a liking to Kirstin and insisted on sitting on her lap. At least Kirstin didn't seem to mind!

It's hard to believe they were here a week, but they are gone already. They left on Wednesday before the 4th, because Jocelyn wanted to spend the 4th in Charlottesville. They have a routine for the holiday and they wanted to be back for that. I can't blame them for that.

Till next time. . .
