Like all grandparents Brian and I are as proud as punch of our grandkids and don’t get to see them enough, in our opinion anyway. Other than my four wonderful sons these kids are my reason for living.
A couple of days ago Jade who is Blake’s daughter turned eight, I don’t know where the years have gone. I am pleased to say that we were able to buy her the pottery wheel she so desperately wanted so that puts us right up there on the popularity stakes for the moment.
We have just come home from Jade’s birthday party where we got to see all my boys and their children, and any day that happens is a good day.
Jade’s party was at a roller skating venue so all the kids, and one of their fathers plus an uncle, had a wow of a time.
Kane’s four children, Caitlin, Alyssa, Jayden and Zak did not stop, these kids have so much energy I get tired just watching them, particularly the two boys. Caitlin can tend to hold back a bit but she is heading for 13 so too old for the other kids and too young for the adults. She just tries to act cool and only joins in up to a point, quite the young lady much to the dismay of her father and grandfathers.
Ryan’s children are also balls of energy, Bailey who is Ryan’s 15 year old stepson doesn’t mind getting into the mix with the other younger kids, and he cacked himself when his mother went a cropper only to get his comeuppance a few minutes later. Cody is a wonderfully loving little boy and sees the good in everyone and everything, and four year old Calais is already quite the littler miss and a bit of a show pony.
Unfortunately we had to leave a little earlier than planned as Brian’s back was not too good, but all the kids were having such a good time they probably didn’t even notice.
