A day with Declan ....

Saturday before last I kept Declan while
Jacquelyn and Bucky traveled to Charlestown for the day
Bucky brought him over around 7:30 and they returned that
night about 9:00.....so it was a long day for this grandma!
 
but one of the best days I've had in a long time
 
I fixed some breakfast for him around 8:00 and then he wanted to
get the bubbles and the sidewalk chalk
 
 
 
 

 
so we headed outside
after picking cherry tomatoes, playing sidewalk chalk and
blowing bubbles, he saw the metal tub and wanted to play in the water
so we drag that down to the patio, fill half way with water, take
his clothes off as he didn't have a bathing suit with him
and he had a blast......watering all of my flowers and playing
with the water hose.
we then had to head inside as it was about nap time
 
it was 9:00! Yes, we did all of that before 9:00!
You can always tell with Declan's been in the kitchen!
 
 
 
he settled down for a nap around 9:30 and slept for 1 hour and 15 minutes
I rested with him as he slept laying in my arms.......oh what a feeling!!
one of the best for this grandma!
 
He woke and had  his snack and then we decided to head over
to my mom and dad's for a visit. Packed up his lunch and off we went
 

 
 
he had fun over there and was being quite the show off for Memaw
 
 We waited to leave there so it would be his nap time....knowing he
would fall asleep in the car. And he did
 
Time for afternoon snack and then Johnny got home from work.
We played toys...he tore up my kitchen and then we decided to go
out for dinner........Mexican food, which Declan loves!!!
 
home and then more play
we could never get him to sleep for the night......and I'm sure Johnny playing
wild and throwing him up in the air didn't help, haha
but then Bucky, Jacquelyn and Jake came home and boy was he
happy to see his momma and daddy. They all spent the night
and this grandma, well I had a really good nights sleep!!!
 
later.....
