It was taco dining on the deck last night. Ground turkey, low fat cheddar, low fat taco sauce and low fat sour cream kept this taco meal in check (at least by Blimpy Girl’s standards).
I’m seizing every opportunity to enjoy this awesome weather; so, a post dinner relay race was planned.
The kids sized up the relay event before being blind folded. The Mission: Place objects in their bags which included prizes such as “Get to see a big screen movie”, a “weekend lunch date with NeeNee and Poppy” and “5 extra minute back rub from Poppy”.
There were a few minor cheating issues with the blind fold, but we worked through the kinks.
The kids laughed, argued, encouraged and guided each other around the course. They spewed venom in one breath, and embraced each other in the next.
Below is my little Fish trying to read (through a blindfold,~ of course, he can’t read) the prize he was awarded. He’s a happy camper and loves whatever prize he gets. So much like his Mommy, happy go-lucky!
I do admit to moments of living vicariously through my grand kids This was one of them. I’ve learned more from my grand kids than my own (grown-up) life experiences.
I can only hope they remember these Wednesday night events once I am gone. It’s what parents/grandparents strive for, creating moments that leave a life legacy to the next generation.
