Sleeping Over.

We had a very special sleepover guest at our house this weekend - Charlie! It was his first visit since he and his family moved (back in April - yes, it's been four months already!) I met up with the whole family at the pool Saturday morning. We played and had lunch 

and then he came home with me. After a good nap (swimming is great for that), we walked over to the golf course. Marc had been looking forward to this outing for weeks. He and Charlie both had a great time! (I was just along to take photos.)

Back home, it was time to make supper. Pizza, of course!




A little more play time before bath. Charlie loved his "ho-hawk" hairdo.

Then stories.

and a good night's sleep for all.

Sunday morning, Marc showed Charlie how to make grits and eggs with cheese and sausage. Both boys enjoyed that breakfast.
...and all too soon it was time to take him home.

Not gonna lie - Marc and I both looked like that last photo of Charlie by 6 o'clock Sunday ... it was an early night for us  💤. But Marmie and Poppa sure had fun.

And hey - it's not very often I have enough material (or photos!) to get two blog posts out of a weekend! Regular programming (in other words knitting and reading) resumes tomorrow.

  3. Charlie is such a cutie! And I'm sure he had a LOT to tell everyone once he got home about all of the things he did while with you.

  9. Fabulous photos of great times! I can relate to the joy of having a grandson sleepover and to being sooo tired afterwards--wouldn't trade it for anything!

  11. My question is whose job is it to carefully arrange all the golf balls in that pyramid shape.
