.... in other words MY grandchildren... as I type that out it seems so surreal to know that I am a grandmother. That my oldest child has children. Not just one child but two and one more on the way. By the end of this Summer I will have 3 beautiful grandchildren.
These were taken at my parents home on the 4th of July. Yes MY parents, so these children of my children are blessed enough to know their Great Grandparents.
I know that years from now, me and the children of my children will look at these images with amazing fond memories. The hot summer days in the pool, the big fluffy clouds, the crisp blue skies will all be things they recall, but they will so get to recall the memories of Great Grandpa's garage and the big bill hat that Great Grandma wore to keep the sun off her face.
So when I am asked "What did you do for the 4th of July" - I made memories.....
