~Snips and snails and puppy dog's tails...~

That's what a grandson's visit is all about.

Where granddaughters have tea parties
grandsons have .....battles .....
with unknown villains and monsters
that must be destroyed.

Imagine waking up and knowing that all these adventures await you:

for he's not just a little boy,
he not just a grandson

He is a submarine captain

 A great builder of skyscraper cities

A fearless explorer of under sea worlds

An apprentice learning at the master's knee

A scientist

A paleontologist

An Olympic diver


I'm exhausted just hearing about it.
But when he drags his tired feet home after a long day of slaying dragons,
he just wants to curl up for a good bedtime story. 

He is rambunctious and inquisitive,
and a deep thinker too.
But I am grateful , that through all the noise of his busy days
he still has room for a cuddle .....or two.


  1. He is adorable...reminds me of my nephews when they were little...their imaginations and energy is boundless. Hope you are having a great summer.


  2. Awwww...He is just the cutest little boy, and so CHARMING, not to mention he looks just like grandma!

    Imagine...this dragon slayer, explorer, and scientist still loves a hug from grandma after he has conquered the world.

    And that is the way it should be.

  3. This is such a cute post Terri! Your grandson is a handsome fellow.

    Two of our G'kiddo's will be here over the weekend. They love the lake and all the adventures that happen here.:-)

  4. Thanks, he is a little charmer. And we have had so much fun with the visits from the Grandkids this summer. Blessed and blessed again.
