I had the fun of hanging out with my grandson for five days while my daughter and granddaughter visited some friends in Florida. I wrote messages to my daughter and son-in-law (deployed in the Middle East) each day to fill them in on our adventures. I'm making a simple mini-book out of those messages and my iPhone photos from our adventures. Smile Smile Smile


"Dear Mom and Dad,
I had a great day at Grandma's house! I woke up about 7:45 am. Grandma let me have chocolate pop tarts and blueberries for breakfast and watch George while I ate. I helped Grandma sort laundry and put it in the washing machine. We went to Barnes and Noble where I played with trains and picked out a book about Arlo the Good Dinosaur. We went to Byerlys to pick up a few things to eat, too. I loved the grapes they had there.
When we got home, Grandma made me a portable lunch and put me in my stroller and we walked four miles in the sunshine while I ate my lunch. We saw our neighbor Mrs. Peterson and her dog along the way. When we got home, I went to bed for a long nap. I didn't complain a bit when Grandma put me to bed. I woke up a little less than three hours later, just in time to get in the car and head off for a bonfire cookout! I was the hit of that party--everyone thought I was so cute. The little girls all wanted to babysit me and the little boys played tractors and swords with me. I went on the trampoline, the swing, the slide, and ran around yelling and shrieking. I roasted a hot dog with grandma and ate most of it. I also ate a lot of fruit and especially loved the fresh pineapple. I pretended to roast a marshmallow, but I wasn't all that wild about eating it. I stayed awake all the way home in the car. I went to bed smelling like a bonfire, but the rest of the family smells the same, so it's all good. I'm planning to sleep late, so that old lady grandma gets a lot of rest and can keep up with me tomorrow.
Love, Ethan"
