GRANDBABIES....IN THE HEART

Pictures tell a story.
Do you ever wish you had more pictures from your childhood?
Some of those magical moments you shared with 
those you loved.....
Being a grandparent can certainly remind you to 
keep your camera on hand at all times.....


The babies in new jammies at the beach.....



An afternoon of playing beachside...
time for a nap with the Divine Miss M


Eating Cheerios's in early morning silence


It's  "lap time" with Uncle Jay


A day at The Fort Worth Zoo
with
Grandma and Papa


His first backpack for preschool


A squeal of delight in summer


His first trip to Maine...
one little monkey jumpin' on the bed.....


And hence the nickname....
Captain Fishstick


Cousins sharing summer fun
in Maine



Thanksgiving Day in Atlanta


Playing at The Ranch in Texas
on a hot summer afternoon...
ice cold watermelon and a slip-n-slide


The Groom shares a tender moment
with his daughter


 The Wedding....
and
The Ring Bearer


Boot Scootin' Boogie


Showing off those proud cowboy boots


The beach wedding....
creating an original


Waiting for the reception to begin...
a lesson on how to play the game


Sleep overs at Grandma's


Out to dinner
at
Mac's


Braces....
The laughter never stops


Mae and The Duke
being somewhat territorial


Cooking 101


Cooking 102


Teen years are upon us.....


"What do they call you, she asked?"
Just Grandma....Maine Grandma.......
and
I really like that!
