FUN WITH GRANDSONS

We are visiting our 3rd son & family for a week and having fun with our two grandsons.  Eli is just 3 months old and is getting so aware of things.  He is a very happy baby and content to watch and grab his toys.
Jonah is almost 3 now and is getting to be such  a big boy.  
 He loves to play outside and seems to always have a stick in his hand.
Monday we took a trip to the zoo and got to ride on a choo choo train!  He wanted to go again.
 I think we looked at the elephants 4 or 5 times.
Yesterday we took Jonah for a "day camping" trip.  He loves the camper.  He has trouble saying the letter "c", so it comes out as "hamper."  He got his first ride in our truck and while at the state park we ate lunch and he had a short rest with grandpa in the camper bed.

I couldn't resist making a special quilted wall hanging for the camper.  The Team Grandpa was embroidered on Eli's jammies that we got him when he was first born and I got the idea from that.  All the little ones seem to gravitate to Grandpa.

After playing on the playground at the state park, we went to the visitors' center and Jonah loved looking at the displays which included a stuffed alligator.  We had to go back to see that more than once.  Below he is looking at a pretty lake with paddle boats.
A tired boy fell asleep on the way home.  We were all worn out!  Only a few more days here, then we move on to another son & his family!

Looks like you had loads of fun and it makes me miss my grandsons (ages 21 months and 4 1/2 years) even more. My DH always says he gets worn out before the boys do and that being a Grandpa is hard work.
