Nothing in this world is better than being a gramma! Sure, having kids of your own is pretty awesome but I'm tellin' ya, there is NOTHING that makes you feel better than that little person who actually wants to spend time with you, and the first time they call you gramma.
I got to spend the weekend with my oldest grandkiddo Nathan this past week, and we had loads of fun. We started our weekend with The SpongeBob Movie. I had no idea it was about food trucks- so it was something we both got a kick out of.
Dinner out was crazy. Our first choice, Jethro's BBQ was so busy they had people waiting outside. Scratch that! Next we drove to Fireside Grill, where the hostess told us every single table in the place was reserved. Sigh. Up the road we tried another barbeque place- it was so busy there was nowhere to park! Even Applebee's had nowhere to park.
We settled on Pizza Ranch, and had fun talking about all sorts of things. School. Singing. Hockey.
Nathan is a hockey nut,and played on the Bruins this year. We went to his playoff game Sunday morning.
Nathan scored three goals and tells me that's called a hat trick. They won!!
After hockey we stopped at the grocery store on the way home and got all the goodies to make nachos. Nathan told me he loves to cook, even though he has never tried it before.
Nathan is a very good helper. He carefully cut up the tomatoes, and the avocado, and he helped me figure out their unusual can opener.
We cooked the hamburger together, and added the nacho sauce, and then made our plates. Afterwards, we cleaned up the kitchen and loaded the dishwasher.
We watched tv, Nathan played some music on Youtube and we sang along, and finally the day was winding down and bedtime was upon us. As we said our goodnights Nathan said "I really like hanging out with you, Gramma." I am truly blessed to have these amazing little people in my life.
