If you follow me on Instagram may have already seen this picture but since it’s my favorite from the past week with our grandson I’m posting it here. We’ve had a hectic, fantastic week with our little guy and his mom visiting from Tennessee.
Activities included Legoland, California Adventure, Disneyland, the park, the beach and more mixed in with cuddling, kisses and hugs of course. Sadly, they’re flying home today and we are already thinking ahead to our next visit.
Now it’s time to prepare for this week as I head off to another new-to-me blog conference, Fitbloggin’ on Thursday.
