Feels like Old Times

. . . but we are several years older! 

Nanny and Papa are spending a few days in Vancouver while our youngest daughter Amy and her husband, Tyler have a little fling in Vegas.
We are having a wonderful time, the children are a delight and delightfully sweet.  It feels like old times, but now we feel old and ache-y after all of the ups and down a daisys.  The hardest part, bless My Beloved, strapping them into the car and stroller seats-yikes!
There are wonderful open gyms for little children nearby and we have made sure to take the children. They can run, and jump, and ride and bounce and scream and anything else their little heart's desire.  Afterward they are all pooped out, we take them home for a change, and lunch, and pop them into bed for a nap.  Shhhh, don't tell a soul, but they they are down, we too are napping on the sofa,  recharging our batteries as they recharge theirs.

As I write this blog, that is where they are, snug as two little bugs in a rug.  In fact, I'm heading to that sofa myself.


As tired as we may be, just seeing those sweet smiling faces makes everything "all better"!  We are blessed.

Happy Saturday!
