I try to have my grandkids over and do things with them… as often as I can…

I so enjoy being with them…

listening to them talk k4407979

watching how they do things… k13778033

seeing how they change so quickly…

I had Carson for two nights… I love it when they ask to stay… and seem to enjoy whatever we do…

From just lying around watching their favorite TV showsx12965119eating of course…”bottomless pits” at timesx17632026 … playing catch with a football in the backyard… or kicking the soccer ball

Sometimes just sitting in the swing k4398182or on the glider just enjoying the quiet…

Mom takes them to the poolu21645540 … so when I asked Carson if he would like to go to the YMCA to swim… he opted for the park instead… even turned down the offer of going to the movie theatre dse0010

Group of kids at park for last day of school…

loved their T-shirts

Last night the Iroquois Amphitheater in the same park had one of their free movie nights

The kids had picked this date because they were playing…”Ghostbusters220px-Ghostbusters_cover

… Kennedy had seen it at a friends but, Carson had not seen it

We gathered a few drinks/snacks and sweatshirts… Sometimes gets cool… The movies don’t start until 8:30pm due to it needing to be dark

We arrived to find “The Ghostbusters” and their vehicle right in front of the entrance

We took a picture and then proceeded in to find that we are not supposed to bring in outside food/drinks… But, for some reason they were overlooking thisEveryone it seemed… had brought a drink of some kind… and snacks

I imagine they understood… We were here because it was FREE… and had “kids” with us… and it was “outside”…

We found seats easily due to being a little early… but, by nights end I estimated about 350-400… people…

They gave away 3 prizes using our admission tickets k3867483to draw the winners out…

and the weather was just right…

Popcorn was the only item boughtk7486159 … You smell it… you gotta have it!…

I love the way the audience gets into the movie with being outside…

Hollering “Ghostbusters”! … when they asked… “Who ya gonna call?”…

Carson said as we left… “ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts!” k1417749 like said in

the movie…
