(where the improv is bathtime in Grandma’s kitchen sink instead of the bathtub)
I’ve really got to come up with a name for my granddaughter here. However, while I’m working on that, here are some pictures of our day on Saturday. We spent the morning at my ex’s house (Oldest Son’s dad). I wanted to give them some time with the baby, and PDD wanted to spend time with their horses, so we went there on the way out to my parents’.
Even though the grandbaby was supposedly the star of the show yesterday, if you ask PDD, the whole point of going to the Ex’s place was to get to see, ride and spend time with their horses. The fact that they got to see and spend time with their granddaughter was merely secondary.
While all the horse lovin’ was going on, the boys were having their own fun with Ex’s 1977 Corvette.
Second Son discovered hay bales can be great sources of entertainment. He took a run at one and found he could walk up it if he got a good enough running start at it. Simple country pleasures for a city boy…lol.
When it came time to leave Ex’s and go to my parents, PDD had a hard time saying goodbye. This will likely become one of my favorite pictures of PDD’s childhood, if only because of its poignancy. She really does love horses. To her credit, I didn’t have to peel her off them to get her in the car. Must be she knows that the best way to get to come back is to go willingly when it’s time. It was hard, though.
On we went to my parents’ house so they could meet their first great-grandchild. I defer to my mother’s aversion to having pictures taken and published for all the world to see and give you instead my dad and my granddaughter.
My parents’ first child was a girl (me), their first grandchild was a boy (Oldest Son) and now their first great-grandchild is a girl. I guess we’re giving each gender a shot at making family history, eh?
Dad and I gave this little one the tour of the land, the shop and all the heavy equipment she’ll one day learn to use. No gender bias in this family – trust me. 🙂
Given that my dad’s dad lived to see 92, and my mom’s mom lived to see 90, and the fact that they are now 69 and 65 respectively, the possibility does exist for my parents to see this little girl graduate high school, at least. As long as they’re not medically miserable, I hope they stick around that long.

How awesome was this day! The photos are incredible. And … I’m so jealous of the boys getting to drive that Vette.
Bonnie´s last blog post..let’s see which method works better
Bonnie – it WAS a great day. And I got to drive the ‘Vette, too! Yep – but I rate more than they do, because I got to take it off the property and take it for a REAL spin! The Ex went with me and took me to a long, flat country road and told me to floor it. Didn’t have to tell me twice, baby – I was FLYIN’ down that road! Wheeeeeeeee!!!!!
On the way back, I told him how funny I thought it was that here we were – grandma and grandpa – flyin’ down the road in a red corvette. He said, “Hey – these kids think they’ve got the corner on havin’ fun. Ha! Not!”
haha…love the pics of your kids sitting on your lap. 🙂

Nice pictures. Your grand daughter is really a very pretty doll and so is the PDD.
Lol, no matter how old they are our kids are always kids to us.
Wish you ever increasing love in your family:)
Great pictures and looks like you all had a blast!
I haven’t come across such beautiful and lively pics ever in my life. This is simply sensational stuff.
What a wonder-FULL day you all had. I had to laugh when I saw the “playing dress up” picture. She looks like a mini Southern Bell…LOL

I’m thrilled you were able to cut loose over the weekend, especially that vet ride.
The dress up picture is a HOOT! Perhaps next time you can dress her in some purple? I’m just sayin’………
