Things to do while you're grannying

 
They're back. We went to Vogrie Park and slid on the slide. (Well, they did.)



And bounced on the bouncy thing. And so on.



Much busyness happened in the sand pit. Grandson narrated his sand-road-mending: "They had to make a new road because there'd been a CATASTROPHE on the old one. They dug and they dug and they dug until they DEFINITELY knew they'd found the sewer."



The garden is in full bloom. Stick around, summer.




Later, they made "chemicals" with water, mud and grass.


Then we had races round the garden. "But don't worry, Granny. Elderly people aren't expected to run very fast."



Inside again, much railway construction took place.

Life is no longer so peaceful. But I do love them.

  1. Your garden looks stunning, mine is in Australian winter mode,not much flowering. I am into great grand children much slower than I was with the grands.

  2. Did Granny run fast just to prove him wrong?

  3. Your plants are wonderful! My grass is no longer green (due to a long time of no rain and hot weather, with horrible temps coming this week), but at least I've kept my plants watered. Your grandchildren do marvelously creative activities. I wish all children did.

  4. I am trying very hard not to think about how you know you have DEFINITELY found a sewer....

  5. Weather looks better there than here! Starting on my way to you tomorrow. Hope I get to find out about road construction.

  7. Your garden is beautiful and your grandchildren adorable. It looks like they had plenty to do to keep themselves AND granny busy. :) I will be visiting with all of mine in Oct. I cannot wait!

  8. ... And they keep you young, don't they! We've just had a three week flying trip to London and Europe and it wasn't nearly long enough, but I couodnT wait to get back to the grandson - wouldn't have deferred the return even if we'd been offered a gold plated 5 star extra week! Your two are delightful!

  9. Hi Pam, such a lovely surprise to see your comment on my blog! You have probably gathered that I don't blog much these days apart from keeping my stitching blog updated, because I am administrator of a new Home makers forum which leaves me with too little time to visit your ever-interesting and always amusing blog! Just made up for it though, and will be back some time soon.

  10. "Don't worry Granny" -- those babies (ha!) are just too cute! Looks like you're having lots of fun with them. I LOVE the picture of your garden in full bloom -- it brings back such happy memories. I have some pretty pink phlox blooming in my pitiful little garden because your big beautiful phlox inspired me so much! Oh, to have the time to visit again!

  11. Taking some time this summer to catch up on what I have missed about your Scottish life! A new grandbaby on the way! So exciting - wishing for smooth sailing of the pregnancy. And 6 years old! I remember your blog pre-first grandson days and before you retired. You have created such a lovely record of that life on your blog, and I always enjoy catching up!
