I Love Watching Kids Play the Old Time Games!

This past weekend we had our grandson, Owen for part of Saturday until noon on Sunday.  What fun we had!  John decided he was going to start Owen out by playing Hide and Seek.  I love watching little kids learning this game and all the other old time games!  Owen is only 1 so we were limited at what we could play with him but Hide and Seek was perfect.  We of course, played a slight variation of the game.  Owen got up in my one and half chair and all by himself covered himself with all the pillows.  I kept saying, where is Owen, I wonder where is Owen".  He started giggling that lovely baby giggle!  John and I started poking the pillows lightly which made him laugh all the more!

Of course, with all 1 yr. olds,  Owen didn't want to stop playing the game.  So Papa and Nana played this game over and over!!  It really was so much fun listening to his little giggle and laugh.  These moments are definitely being treasured by John and I!  We cannot wait until he gets old to play alot more games.  Games like Red Light, Green Light, Simon Says and all the board games that we played as children.

Memories!!!

He's already a big boy and so very cute - I love them at this age!

Hope the Summer is fun Sherri and that you aren't having the lousy weather we have here lately! Just one clear, dry, sunny evening would be nice.

Hugs - Mary

Mary, unfortunately our weather hasn't been up to par either! Now every night we are having terrible thunder and lightning storms with torrential rains! Bring on Autumn!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
