Babies of today.

Yesterday my daughter and I went to a baby shower for one of the new babies coming next month.
While we were gone, the future Daddy, our oldest grandchild, was painting our house.
Hubba loved painting, but I won't let him climb on a ladder anymore, so he was the supervisor.

Our trip took us to Lonsdale, a small town in southern Minnesota, a town where some of my Irish ancestors are buried, and who knows I could still have some distant relatives in the area.
Someday I'll have to check it out.

As "mommy to be" opened her gifts, it made me wonder how I ever survived having babies
without all those extras.

It was fun to meet the other people who will be in our future Great Granddaughters lives, and
enjoy the one thing I like best, the food.
I had my first Taco in a bag, and I think I am hooked.

When we got back Hubba was still in his chair supervising, the house was painted, the garage will get done today if it doesn't rain.

My kids and grandkids constantly surprise me.

As a relatively new grandparent (grenddaughters age 3 and 1) I can't imagine great grandchildren yet. But how exciting! The "necessary" accessories for babies are unbelievable, and the cost is beyond my belief.
