Little Energy Left

Entertaining two of the Grand Kids for a few days of March break, has left this Grandma with little energy.

Our visits, because of the 11 hour drive that separates us, are always pretty intense. We don't see each other often, so it naturally falls to try and cram as much love and fun as possible into our infrequent visits.

The kids hot tubbed, and made special desserts. Uncle Peter arrived with his DS, so the three of them 'DSed' together. (It's the new-age rendition of 'the family that plays together stays together) Uncle Peter is the one wearing the stuffed turtle atop his head.

There was hiking on the Trout Hollow Trail and lunch at the 'Village at Blue' pizzeria followed by an afternoon of swimming at the Plunge.

By Saturday night, after a dessert of chocolate cupcakes and ice cream with home made chocolate sauce, there was some energy to burn. We danced.

I may have started it,

but soon James joined in,
then Abi.
Finally, Uncle Peter felt the call.

It was all great fun, but Grandma is a little tired. Regular blogging resumes tomorrow.

Last night at dinner I said "Brenda didn't post today - its odd." My husband said "She's probably tired from having the grand kids over March Break." I said Noooooo Brenda is a jock! She hikes and skis she wouldn't be tired!"

Clearly I never even imagined there would be dancing! No wonder you're pooped!

BTW Looooove the painting over the couch!

When you didn't post yesterday, I figured it was grandkid hangover. My Mom gets it, too.

I can scarcely imagine what it would be like to see grandkids only once in a while - so exhausting! Mine live three blocks away, so I can spread the energy expenditure out a lot more. Loved your pictures. Hurrah for grandchildren! And for peace as well.

That's so cute! We don't do nearly enough dancing at our house!

Looks like so much fun and great laughs! Makes me wonder...which piece of music was the trigger!?
