My son and his wife had an opportunity to go to Cancun for a week.
Who would want to turn that down?
They asked if I could babysit for a week.

Who would want to turn that down?

So I took some time off work and hung out with these grands.

Every day I was entertained by the antics of this one.
He loves to pose in body building poses.

He says he watches his dad do the same thing!

And I believe it.
Because his dad DID do this at this age too.

Krew is the little sister whisperer.
They love their big brother. 

My daughter in law bought about 8 gallons of strawberries before I arrived.
Hoping that I would make some jam.

So I did.

All ready for the freezer.

After our "jamming session" these helpers needed a nap.
And I needed them to need a nap.

One thing I haven't babysat before was this girl.
A Labradoodle.
Pretty cute furry bear.

Howie came during the middle of my stay there to help out for a couple of days.
He is the best grandpa.
And the girls just screamed and of course thought he was the best.

They played for hours.

The furbaby thought he was pretty awesome too.

Lots of  horsey rides. 

And finally they are all worn out.

Sounds like a very successful babysitting session and the jamming session looks very productive too... Howie looks like he enjoyed this time with the Grands.

I had a babysitting session with one grandson over-night at my daughter and part of the next day and the kid was well behaved the whole time which made it easy for me. I was anticipating a bit of manipulation from him but no, it did not happen. He said he had a fun time with me.

Hugs, Julia

Sounds like you and your hubby got the better end of the deal! What a fun week you all had and holy cow, you even found time to put up some Jam. What a rock star you are. Love the muscle poses he definitely knows how to work it. Like father like son haha!
Their dog is really cute, I think grandma and grandpas house is going to be on top of his list of places stay from now on.

Hello you! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I miss all those days when we had a tight blog group. I pop into your blog from time to time. You've been through a lot with your dear husband's heart, your preemie grandbaby and a new home. A couple of years changes a lot. It's wonderful hearing from you and being able to see how you are doing. Sending hugs!
