Wonderful Grand Parent Day

I headed out to the porch early this morning to do the cleaning out there. It sure was dirty and I had to do some spider spraying. With so much rain they seem to be everywhere along with some other not so nice pests. By time I finished the heat was rising fast. So I ran in an jumped in the shower. 

I needed to run to Safeway for a birthday cake, As Anthony is celebrating his 26th birthday Wed. I had a Carvel ice cream cake on my mind and they not longer sell them. So I figured a regular cake would do, then I spotted ice cream cakes in a freezer next to the baker. They weren't Carvel but that was OK. and picked up some salad fixings to add to the meal.

It was a great day. Tracy made a macaroni salad and some really good marinade for the chicken. There was cheese filled hot dogs, dip and chips. Anthony did all the BBQ. 

The kids were so much fun today. Just love them to pieces.

Arriana is really growing fast now. So busy all the time and endless chatter

Playing a very interesting game with the house or garage these toys were his dads when he was little

Anthony and Ashley
We had a wonderful day and lots of good food and fun.

Hope all Grandparents had a great day today

Good Night All


  1. You had me with the ice cream cake! I haven't had one in years. sigh.

    Sounds like a great time and lots of good food, gosh those kids are growing fast.

  2. Hi Nancy,

    My daughter made the marinades for the chicken and they were really good.
    These babies are growing like weeds, the little guy started school this year.

  3. The kids are just darling and I can appreciate how nice it is when you see them. Sounds like a good meal.

  4. Hi Gypsy,

    Thank you, it was a very good day and I so enjoyed the kids.

  5. You're such a good Gramma, Jo. Funny, why did I think that Carvel was an east coast thing? The first time I had it was when I was a kid which is a long time ago...well maybe teenager, I've forgotten. I've had the fresh stuff since then, and it doesn't taste as good as it used to. My son buys the ice cream cakes for birthdays, and they are good. Glad you had a great Gramma day.

  6. Hi Nancy,

    Yes Carvel is from back east, but sometimes you find the ice cream cakes here. The kids said they sell them in Fry's grocery stores. The ice cream cake came up a couple of weeks ago when my daughter and I were out on our Sunday mommy daughter day. We had wanted the fat free yogurt and the store was gone so we went to one of those really good ice cream stores and they had them there but boy did they cost.

  7. Great looking kids!! Always fun to have family time.

  8. Hi Sondra,

    It is fun at this age, Anthony is learning so much and Arianna is at the exploring stage
