The Rainbow Hotel

My son, “Mom, do you remember about next weekend… watching the kids?”… “Uh, no”, I said… “You mean I didn’t ask you”, from son… “Don’t know a thing about it”, from me… “Well, I thought I had… I’ve been so busy!” son talking  … Son says, “We’ve planned on going to Nashville  with our friends”… “Well, I don’t know… I might have some plans of my own”, I say…

Anyway … you can tell how this conversation continued  …

I said, “Of course!”… love having my grandkids… My plans can be put on hold!…

I guess… I hesitated only for a second… Mainly because I don’t want to be taken for granted…

And I have to admit they usually don’t do that to me… but, sometimes it sounds like it…

So Poppy and I picked the two younger ones up after Carson’s Football Game… The oldest being almost 18  … had somewhere to stay…

Carson is 7 and Kennedy… she is 10Great ages for doing things with…

After letting Carson get out of his uniform … I took them to get some fast food They are at Grandma’s!… They can have anything they want!

We decided to go to the park to eat and afterwards they could play on the playground equipment We had about an hour before we were going to see the movie, “Timothy Green”  I told them I had heard it was quite sad … Kennedy seemed to have known but, they both still wanted to see it…

While eating at the park… I recognized something on the groundPersimmons … just like we had in our yard when I was young

I showed the kids the fruit… tried to get them to taste one… but, barely stuck a tongue to it … They were good and ripe… I could tell… so they wouldn’t be bitter like they are when they haven’t ripened…

They helped me collect a McDonald’s bag half full…

I have plans for this neat fruit

After playing at the park for a while… we headed to the movie

We were a little early… so Carson tried out the Race Car Game  … He does pretty good!…

The movie had a lot of life lessons in it… but, it was quite sad … The kids must be getting older… because they seemed to understand the meaning… and talked a lot about it today…

TV and sleep was the agenda after getting home after dark

Oh, yes… both had to have their backs scratched … just like their Grandma

Today…we ate breakfast… Yes, McDonald’s again… thanks to Poppy... Breakfast Burritos and Cinnamon Rolls…

I had saved a lot of different boxes  for Carson to build with… His imagination is awesome... He decided to build a Hotel… complete with swimming pool…main entrance… several levels of floors… windows… delivery entrances… a Palm Tree… The name “Rainbow Hotel” came from the piece of rainbow-colored paper we had… and because the boxes had every color on them that you could imagine…

Kennedy also got into the creation… and extended the Hotel… I just loved it and they were so proud to see Mom and Dad’s faces when they showed them what they had made… I overheard Carson saying, “We had an awesome time!” and I had received a lot of “Thank You Grandma’s”   from Kennedy…

I guess I’ll have to start saving boxes again… Who knows what they will think to build next time…
