Greeeeema, Avery and Madi !

Avery and I had so much fun making chocolate covered strawberries,
 and even more fun eating them!

Madi liked to wear Greeeeeema's shoes

Ate lunch at Olive Garden with Auntie Marlene and had a picture taken with her...

Sweet Madi loving the play tent.


Avery was soooo tickled while playing in the tent! Giggly!!!

All three of us having a blast together!

May visit from Avery and Madi

Spent Friday, May 4th thru Thursday morning with our grandchildren, Avery and Madi. We met Rachel and Brian in Edwards and had lunch  and then brought the two little ones back to Grand Junction for a few days. Then on Monday, we drove to Steamboat Springs to stay for a couple of days with them and their parents. We had a blast. Both Avery and Madi are a hoot! Avery is so precious. She helped me in the kitchen when we made chocolate covered strawberries. And Madi started using the phrase " Yummy Tummy" after Grandpa Bob sang it to her. He would sing "Yummy, yummy, yummy I go love in me tummy" and all she could say was " Yummy Tummy". It was so cute. Of course I took several pictures and thought I would share them. Madi also liked wearing my shoes. And one day  we set up our play Noah's Ark tent and the girls and I had so much fun. Love those precious little girls!!
Avery calls us Grandma and Grandpa Bob, but one of the funniest things was the way Madi said our names. I was Greeee...ma and then there was Bob. She never called him Grandpa Bob...just Bob. So funny!
