#SOL16 Day 20
Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation. ~ Lois Wyse
An impromptu invitation was just what I needed. We met our son and daughter (their spouses both had to work) and our two grandchildren for breakfast. We met at a central location at a diner I had never been to before. What a joy to see their tiny faces light up when we walked into the entryway of the diner. One was shouting Pops and Nona, Pops and Nona, while the other was hiding behind her dad’s leg peeking out and laughing. There is no better way to start your day!
After breakfast we went to a playground just down the road from the diner. Although it was the first day of Spring the kids needed hats and gloves and winter coats, but that certainly didn’t dampen their enthusiasm for the swings and slides. Pops even got into the act and slid down the slides with the kids. We all had a good laugh and pictures to use as evidence in the future!
It certainly wasn’t what my husband and I had planned for today, but we never pass up the opportunity to spend time with our grandchildren. They change and grow so quickly, that you want to capture every moment possible and treasure it. We are so happy that our kids want to include us in so many adventures both big and small. If there is the chance to make a memory – everything else can wait!
