We must remember this: We volunteered

We're playing host to the grandest grandchildren for two days, starting tomorrow at noon when we meet them and their mother for lunch. We'll give them back on Sunday at noon.

So, for 48 hours, we'll be on our toes. We've had our planning hats on and so far have come up with:

riding the riding lawnmower
fishing with cane poles
digging the worms to use with the cane poles
going to Walmart to buy night crawlers if the above doesn't turn out so well
riding the riding lawnmower even though the lawn is already mowed
swimming at a friend's pool
seeing Cars 2 (Do we, as grandparents, need to see Cars 1 first? Perhaps I can just read a synopsis at imdb.com)
watercolors and new crayons are bought
clearance aisle at Walmart
walking to the park
playing Barbie
the riding lawnmower may need more gas

I'll report in when we recover.

I'm sure it was a wonderful visit! We had the twins on Friday night, traded them for Avery for Saturday/Saturday night. Fun!

your list looks a lot like ours :) You might add balloons...cheapest form of entertainment! They like to hit regular balloons up in the air in the house, helium balloons are available at the Dollar store for really one dollar!, and water balloons thrown at Grandad are the BEST!

Your list looks a lot like ours. You may want to add balloons....the cheapest form of entertainment. They like to try to keep regular balloons up off the floor, helium filled balloons are available at the Dollar Store for really only a dollar!, and water balloons thrown at Grandad are the BEST! :)
