Grand Terrace and the Grands

Last week we were blessed to have two of our grand kids accompany us to our home away from home in Grand Terrace.
Cade (7) and Kobi(9)
We ate out by the pool the first day after Mr. SS got home from work. We enjoyed BBQ'd Chicken Bones (that's what all my grand kids call chicken legs), Corn on the Cob(cooked on the BBQ)  and Watermelon.
No cooking over a hot stove for me that night.

We swam.
We sunbathed.
And we swam some more.
We played games.
And we dipped Oreo's in milk.
We went to a fun Pizza Parlor and ate pizza
We played miniature golf
Twice.

Oh, and I almost forgot...

(I hope you can click on this to enlarge it)
We found another Drive In Theater in Riverside. The Van Buren Drive In.
We took the grands to see Cars 2. We sat in lawn chairs in the back of Mr. SS's pick-up.
It was cold (if you can believe that) and the movie was a bit of a disappointment, but
we had fun, laughed and ate Popcorn and Brownies.

All in all,  it was a wonderful week and I was so aware of how blessed we are to have such loving, sweet
Grandchildren.

What a great week...for everyone - mom & dad, the kids and you and Mr SS. Great memories doing simple things. It's fun having just the two kids when they so often have to share you with so many cousins. I'm so glad you had this time with them and yes, you are blessed.

It sure looks like you all had fun. What a nice treat for them and you. And for them to get to experience a drive-in in the back of a pick up..the icing on the cake.

I am your newest follower. Your pictures were wonderful, what a fun day you all had. Your grandchildren are lucky to have you! My son just called me to tell me he needs a sitter overnight tonight, so I guess I will be having lots of fun too!!! :)
I really like your blog and am planning to go through older posts when I have more time. Please come visit me at my new blog, Ric Rac and Polka Dots. I'm brand new, but have lots of really fun things planned to share with everyone. I hope to see you there!

What a delight it is to have a pool. I miss having one here. My sweet husband decided when his children were grown..that they no longer needed the pool and broke it up and filled it in and now mows the pool. :) I'm kidding..but you know what I mean.
We lived on Maywood Dr. in Bakersfield, right near the dog park. The park was beautiful and well kept...but the early morning barking was a wee much at times.
I lie. It was a LOT much! LOL
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Now that is a perfect week in my book! I am not sure who had more fun, the grands or the grandparents! :)
