Grandpa Bob Watches the Kids

Last Friday night Keith and I said "good-bye" to our kids for the night.  We had planned an out-of-town adventure and left Grandpa Bob in charge of the kids for the night.  Grandma couldn't come along because she was out of town watching other grandkids, but Grandpa was available.  The kids were excited for Grandpa Bob to come and stay and he gave them the royal treatment during his stay.  Friday night, Cara cooked them pizza for supper.  After Grandpa arrived, Cara left for a sleepover at a friend's house and missed quite a few activities with Grandpa.  Then Grandpa and the kids played the boardgame "Sorry".  Saturday morning everyone was up early for more adventures with Grandpa.  First, he took them to the donut shop for fresh donuts.  Then, they attended the Fall Festival parade.  They got to the parade early and got good seats on the parade route at the beginning.  This parade features many marching bands from area schools.  Justin was all ready to watch the two Norfolk Catholic bands march because at preschool they had watched the bands practice marching.  Erica, Ashlin and Justin each received 3/4 of an ice cream bucket of candy from the parade.  Next, Grandpa Bob took them to lunch at McDonald's.  But, he told them they had to be home in time for the Nebraska game which kicked off at 2:30.  Throughout the day, they also played numerous games of cards, specifically Golf.  Lastly, Grandpa took them out for supper at Dairy Queen.  I had not planned for them to eat out that much, but I guess no one wanted to cook.  I think everyone had a great time and can't wait for Grandpa Bob's turn to watch them again.

Take care,
