A visit with our Great Grandsons!

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Today brought many smiles and much happiness to our home. Our granddaughter Danielle has been in our city visiting for the first time in 2 years. We live in Southern Ontario, Canada and she & her family live in British Columbia, Canada - many miles separate us.

Danielle came today with her two little sons . . . Elijah, 6 months old and Roland, 3 years old. Also, Danielle's brother Tyler (our grandson) came to visit with her and my stepdaughter Carol joined us too. Our weather was beautiful, so we had a nice visit out on the back patio. Little Roland enjoyed the yard to play in and he loved our rubber snakes in our garden so much, we had to give him one to take home, lol. And talk about sweet . . . he is now 3 years old and I haven't seen him since he was 9 months old . . . well, he ran right into my arms as soon as they got here and would not stop hugging me! And he calls me "Gramma", which I love!

Their visit was a joy for me and Rolly. Here are a couple of photos I took today.

I'm going to sleep really well tonight, with visions of my sweet great grandsons taking over my dreams!
