You know, when you are 86 and want to get down on the floor and play ridiculous games with your great grandchildren, nobody even thinks it is odd. Guess they think you are in your second childhood. Anyway, the 5 and 7 year old acted at first like they were too old to do such stupid things but the 21/2, the 2 year old and even the 14 month understood perfectly that you can act just as dumb as you want and just have a wonderful time laughinhg and giggling. I confess I almost hated to stop for dinner, no, thats not true. Dinner was wonderful, the lamb was perfect and so was everything else except for the green bean caserole the oldest grand daughter always brings to these feasts. No one but her ever eats it and she can't understand why. I was resting and talking after dinner when the 2 1/2 year old asked Leone, "can grandpa come play now". I had to confess that I wasn't quite ready but play did resume later. I'm exhausted.

We hadn't been up to the farm in 2 years and I truly enjoyed going through the hills to get there.

A wonderful time with family an I'm already looking forward to labor day weekend when the clan always gathers at our house.

Glad you and Leone had a lovely time with your family--esp. the greatgrand kids.

I'm impressed that you can get down on the floor, then back up, again. At 80, I can still do both, but it's with some difficulty and some help, too, if it's available!

Sounds like you had a grand time! How wonderful. Brought misty tears of joy. I can hear the love and see your face surrounded by the little ones. Completely awesome!
