We went to the park today for a picnic with our son Mike, his wife Kim and our grandchildren Garrett and Zoey. It was a beautiful day here and a perfect way to spend Memorial Day.
The kids had a great time playing on the swings and going down the slide. A lot of people had the same idea because the park was quite crowded. Luckily we were able to find a picnic table so we could sit down and enjoy our sandwiches that Kim was generous enough to make for all of us.
Not long after we began eating our sandwiches, the Ice Cream truck pulled up. Garrett and Zoey both started asking for ice cream. Pop Pop took them over to the truck and two happy children came running back to the table.
We played awhile longer and then decided to pack up. It was nap time for Zoey.
We had told Garrett that Nana & Pop Pop would be heading out to Ohio soon to visit our Ohio family. While we were walking to the car Garrett asked me if we were leaving for Ohio today? I said, “No, not today.” He said, “Nana, when you go to Ohio, can you take a picture of Uncle Brian and Aunt Jenny and send me their picture in a text?” He said he wanted his three cousins pictures texted too! I said,”Garrett, you can text now?” He said, “Yes I can!” I looked over at his Mom and she just rolled her eyes and smiled. You see, Garrett is just four years old! I don’t think he can read or write yet but knowing Garrett he probably can text. I smiled and said, “Okay!” That was just the perfect ending to a perfect afternoon.
Happy Memorial Day!
