Thursday Happenings.

Was up at 06:00AM and had my coffee, the  kids are still sleeping like babies.

Yesterday we had a great day at the pool, it was sunny and about 91 degrees. They had so much fun that instead of leaving at 04:30pm or 05:00pm they played until 06:00PM, We then went to the store outside the gate and got a couple of Hunt Brothers Pizza’s, since Nicky & Chris’s Dad is picking them up today, I  changed pizza night from Friday to Wednesday. Boy were they happy.

Our plan for today is to get Nicky & Chris all packed up and Chris’s bike put in the truck. Then about 11:00AM put our trunks on and head for the beach. Their Dad is supposed to meet us at the beach at 01:00PM and take to his place. Adam and I will then go to the pool for the rest of the day with his friends. We will be staying until Sunday. So far the weather had co-operated like the last week we spent here with sun everyday and no rain.

So far these three  kid sure have eaten and drank us out of food here, not like when there is just the two of us, In three days a gallon and a half of milk, and about 12 Gatorades have bit the dust. tomorrow I will have to make a run to the store for milk and drinks, I haven’t been allowing soda, I do keep some bottled water but me & Donna are the only ones that ever drink it.

Not much else going on, looking forward to one more day with the gang of three, and then the rest of the weekend with just Adam.

Everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna……


  1. I bet they were pooped after spending that long in the water. Have a great time with Adam.

  2. You are earning your much deserved halo, Sam...I know I couldn't do it as much as you do!

  3. I've tried that Gatorade stuff have a dozen times over the years & just have never developed a taste for it. Could I be from a different Planet or something....:((

  4. I like the G-2, it's like Gatorade light, lots less sugar and the flavors are lighter. You're sure a good grandpa, Sam.

  5. Sure seems like this has been a good week so far!..sun and water and fun!..good on you Sam for being such a good Grandpa!

  6. The kids parents should really appreciate you......You are a Saint!!
