Grandkid Withdrawals!

For all of you grandparents out there, you know what I am talking about. A grandparent can only go so long without seeing their grandkids before feeling to pangs of grandchild withdrawals! I am currently suffering from these pangs. I haven't seen two of my grandchildren for over a month, I did see my youngest granddaughter (picture on the left) on July 4th, but only for a few hours and that didn't do it for me.

My hubby just saw our two eldest grandkids (right) just 3 days ago. They all met in Idaho and had dinner together. My granddaughter told Bumpa (my husband) to "tell Nana (me) that I miss her." That filled my heart with warmth, but caused my withdrawals to peak again. They were on their way to their other grandparents house for a week. They will have a lot of fun I am sure. They were going to the Oregon coast to camp and do all kinds of memorable things. The kids are never bored when they visit them. That grandma and grandpa are always on the go!

When we have the grandkids we try and go camping, or kayaking if the weather is good, but if it's not, we make goodies, play games or put puzzles together. There's nothing like spending time with grandkids. As soon as all of mine return to Montana, I'm going to have to visit them to get my fix! They are angles sent from heaven and I cherish every moment I have with them.


  1. Your sweet grandkids are adorable. I know what you mean about missing them :-) Hope you see them SOON!

  2. I am new to blogging - - within the last month - - - and just tonight figured out how to find your blog from where you are following mine. You live in a BEAUTIFUL part of the country. I didn't read all your posts but did get to the one about missing your son's call. Thank you to him and to you all for his serving our country in the military. Whenever I see military men in restaurants in our city, I thank them - - and almost cry saying it because it is a REALLY BIG service they are giving to us at home.

  3. I really know what you mean by grandchildren withdrawal! I've had one of them here for most of the summer and it's been great. During the school year, with all their activities, it's hard to spend time with them.

  4. Oh they are adorable. You must be very proud.

    BTW I am having a few blog issues but thanks for still following. I will get things worked out soon.

  5. Aren't your grandkids adorable! Great photos...

    See now you did it the right way. You've got grandkids that you can hang and play with and then send them home. I started out way later than you and have a 10 year old...and we're the same age!

    Thanks for your post. And stopping by mine!
