Nana and Baboo's Super Saturday

Saturday was a delight. Youngest son Jeremy and daughter-in-law Katie and grands Molly Kate, 3, and 14-month-old Walker spent lunch and a large part of the afternoon with us. All our grands are at delightful ages. And it is such a treat to see and hear this pair in action.

Molly Kate’s first choice for entertainment was Walker’s big blue ball that resides at our house.
MK strikes a pose.

Walker headed for a yard sale find that has entertained every one of the six grands at toddler age.
Walker enjoys orchestrating animal sounds.

As the afternoon waned, duets on our upright piano, a rousing episode of brother-sister chase complete with excited sound effects (Apparently Nana and Baboo have a higher tolerance for high-pitched squeals than the youngsters' daddy does) and a game of hide and seek with Baboo burned up enough energy that this on-the-move pair started winding down.

MK chooses a ride in Nana’s “chariot.”


MK convinces Baboo to share his reading glasses so she can play teacher.

Little teacher!

Ready for a father-son YouTube video session


Sesame Street music videos!

Yea, Sesame Street!
Thanks go to Katie for these last four images. I was sitting on the sofa by Jeremy and Walker. I handed my point and shoot camera to Katie, and she captured some of my favorite images of the day!


  1. I love the last photos of the day. What precious children they are. I wish my grandchildren lived close enough to stop by for a visit on a Sunday afternoon.

    Have a good week.

  2. Seeing the Sesame Street video appearing are just wonderful pictures of the surprise and joy on his face!!! Molly continues to be just cute as a button!! What wonderful times and memories!

  3. They are so sweet and I am sure they help you to over many a hard patch in your recovery.

  4. What fun times! Your little ones are really growing--and they are precious!

  5. these are priceless memory's. love the sesame face and the little teacher.

  6. What adorable grands you have. The camera does love them. What a wonderful visit that had to have been.
