a trip to Gramy's

Sorry for my recent absence! I have just been in a flurry of activity. I went to visit my Grandmother, which is something I don't do often enough. She is dear, and she misses us all. She is not that far away either- it's no small feat with the kids, but it's doable. And she is 83- she won't be here forever. Auntie G is on my way, so we arranged for me to pick her up and she went along. It was a very nice little trip.

Going to see Gramy always leaves me feeling guilty for not going more often. I need to do that!

Anyway, while there we took the boys down to the nearby playground and I actually remembered to take pictures!

Sweetcheeks. The weather was gorgeous. He loves being outside.

His slide technique is a wee bit sloppy! ;) He sort of hikes like that, as well- in a shambling, relaxed sort of manner that actually works very well. It's his own unique style.

Littleman on the other hand, likes to tackle his challenges precisely. That doesn't mean he is tidy- just check out the hair and his sandy fanny- but he knows what he wants to do and how he wants to do it. He preferred to scale the side of the play equipment rather than go around to the stairs.

Littleman, the victorious.

Oh, and in case you were wondering why Sweetcheeks ended up with that silly moniker, let's just say that his cheeks used to look just like Babyman's do now:

Reminds me of a bulldog's jowls. I just kiss and kiss them! Sweet cheeks!

Today's thumbs-up is for these pics of funny signs. I chuckled, smiled, snorted, giggled and snickered.
