Family visit.

Grandchildren are God’s way of compensating us for growing old. ~Mary H. Waldrip

Today our son and his family arrive from New Jersey and will be staying with us for a week.We’re so excited to see them all again, especially as it’s Max’s second birthday. He’s such a happy little chap, as you can see from this photo with his sister, out enjoying the snow a few days ago.


Their big sister will also be here, so there will be seven of us here, instead of just us two, and I’m sure the house won’t be anywhere near as quiet as it usually is. πŸ™‚


Hubby and I will be on our merry way to Palm Beach airport when you read this. This is supposed to be the Sunshine State, so I hope the weather improves for them, as it was raining cats and dogs all yesterday afternoon and evening, and today is very grey and cloudy. Max is having a birthday dinner at the club tonight, with balloons and candles, and we’re driving to Disney early tomorrow, so that should be a fun and exciting day, especially for the children.

I probably won’t be around on the blogs for a few days, unless I get time to post a couple of pics, so just chat amongst yourselves until I reappear. Wishing you all a great weekend. See you soon.

  1. I like the top photo, something about the colour it looks like ones I have of me in the 70’s/80’s it’s a vintage memory already!

    • Thanks so much, Madhu. I just found a couple of hours tonight after getting the three of mine fed and to sleep, whilst the parents go out for a well earned evening on their own. πŸ™‚

  2. They look adorable as I’m sure they are. I’m going to have to quit growing old because I don’t have any compensation for it. I’ve always suspected that, but now I know that for sure. Your babies keep you well compensated! Have fun, Sylvia. Enjoy!!!

  3. Enjoy your break from blogging! We’ll miss you, but look forward to more shots of the grands. Hope it’s a super spectacular day for Max!

  4. I haven’t been around much, my camera is broken so not much blogging going on whilst it is repaired. Have a great time with the dude and dudettes, my lot are coming for lunch on Sunday πŸ™‚

  5. Many happy returns of the day for Max. Enjoy the party! So happy you get to see your gorgeous grandchildren more often now. Have loads of fun at Disneyworld. Just love the pics.. they’ve grown so much! Hugs Sylvi xxx

  6. Being a grandparent is “the best”! Have a lovely time! We will be repeating this scenario with the two youngest of our six grandchildren in April and are already counting the days.

  7. I do like the look of the youngsters… makes one feel younger in yourself when the Grand kids are around… some how one just finds more energy… I love it…
