Just call me Gams!

Monday, June 6, 2011

Every summer my two granddaughters come to stay for a week. This year it will be two. They are ten and almost eight years old. It's strange how grandkids turn you back into a kid yourself. Life becomes an event, a party, a whole different world. The everyday drudgeries of life are cast to the wind.

The girls favorite thing to do is swim. I was thinking that we could take pictures of the pools over the years without the girls even in the picture. You could tell their ages by the size of the pool. From a very small baby pool to last year buying a large one with the ladder, the pump and oh yeah because of its size, the city required we put up a temporary fence around it. Can you say Gams?

That's what we do as grandparents, we make everything a little bigger, a little better and a lot of fun. Its hard to stuff all the fun into a weeks time, but we do it. Swimming, sewing, riding scooters, crafting, eating out, night, night talks, Worlds of Fun. Whew!!

I love making memories with Mackenzie and Morgan. For those few days everything is NEW again. Something only a Gams would understand.
