Water Fun for Pink Day

Happy Pink Day Everyone!

I'm joining Beverly at
How Sweet the Sound
for Pink Saturday.

Be sure you go HERE
to check out all the ladies
and tell Beverly a
big thank you for organizing it all.
At the zoo last week

my grandson had a blast

playing in the water.

I did not come prepared so

had to sit on the sidelines

and take pics.

which was really fun

but not quite as cooling.

Hope you had a great week.
Gotta run.

Phoenix Zoo Day 2

Yesterday I focused on the giraffes,
my  grandson's favorite animal.

Today I thought I'd show you some more of what we saw.
We saw birds, big ones.

medium sized ones

and tiny ones
that were feeding babies.
We saw some of these

a couple of these

one of these

and one of these.

We also saw

and tigers

And bears.
Oh my!
I almost forgot :)

Grandson also wanted to make sure I mentioned these.

We had a great day,
even if it was a bit warm  -
109 degrees.

A Day At The Zoo

The text read,
"What you doing Friday? 
Want a little boy?"

Well, I couldn't turn that down.
What a great start! 
Walked in and already we are seeing fun stuff.
From there we went straight to the 

And you know how I love to get closer.

And closer still.

Then it was feeding time!!!!

Even Grandmother got to feed the giraffes.

There were little ones, too,

 Wait a minute. What's going on?

The sprinklers came on.
And the animals went running.

 What fun!

More next time.

I Keep the World Spinning

I take one step at a time,

Okay, so sometimes I take a few steps at a time.

Before I grab the world by the tail,

And spin

Turning everything upside down.

Before I let loose.

Who am I?
A three-year-old grandson.

Years and years ago
my grandmother passed.
And among some other things
I inherited these
I was thirteen years old at the time.

I've kept these balls all these years,
never knowing what I wanted to do with them.

Using a few bits here and there,
but overall, just holding on to them
for they represent my grandmother's love.
After all,
she is the one who taught me to crochet and knit.

Remember this?

I asked my grandson to model.
After seeing some of your blogs
I wasn't sure if he would.
You know . . .
sometimes the kids don't want their pics taken.

Not a problem!


He seemed to enjoy his photo shoot.
Oh, and he loves the jacket.
