How time flies

The sock puppets were a wonderful diversion, if not exactly as I had imagined they might be ...


Boys will be boys ...


And if the weather wasn't as sunny as usual, still there is nothing better than a walk on the beach ...


Unless maybe it's a bonfire with s'mores ...


or a trip to the aquarium ...


or a dip in the pool ...


or making cookie dough (with some baked cookie dough for those who prefer such things) ...


There was even some stitching on a family sampler long in the making, now nearing its end ...


All our grandchildren together for one last picture ...


until next year.

I love the non-holiday pix of children! Of them being themselves! Just like this one.

Mo - yes and yes ... thank you! And I'll be sending a couple of sea urchins pictures your way as I thought of you at the aquarium.

Dee - The grandboys always make me smile ... and this was but one of many ways!

Hazel - time slipped through my fingers, and for every moment captured there were countless others

Liz A said...

And Vicky ... thank you, too!

While not exactly a puppet show, the theatrical nature of wearing different sock puppets on each foot is quite a wonderful story! I find that time seems to become an instant when we are with our grand kids. The thought of 10 whole days with ours, first 5 days in Colorado at Rocky Mountain National Park and then 5 days here in New Mexico, felt like a good length of time. The reality is that it all went by in a flash... BUT photos and heart memories hold those moments as you have so lovingly shared here with us Liz and there is next year, for sure! As an aside, I love the scrumptious silliness and happiness of the photo of all of your grands - Logan holding Parker Mae,Jackson, Griffin and Jace, a treasured moment in time of the summer.

Marti - After years of pursuing "perfect pictures" I now love the silliest ones best. And yes, time with grandkids goes way too fast, accelerating with each passing year.

Sue - Welcome back
