Grandma and Grandpa O'Barr

I just took Grandma and Grandpa O’Barr to the airport. Aubrey took it the hardest and cried most of the way home, she was truly sad that they were gone. I have a theory on Grandparents, I believe that they are a privilege, a treat, and because they have raised their children they have a greater vision then those of raising our children, and have much to offer their grandchildren. I try really hard not to have Grandma or Grandpa’s on either side babysit much because I don’t want them to have to discipline, they should just be able to enjoy the relationship on both sides. Anyway, the kids love their grandparents, and I hope that just because they only physically see them once a year, with my parents a little more often since they live closer, but that they are able to develop a sweet bond with them. I see how quickly they re bond with them though, and I feel a sense of relief when they climb on their laps and tell them about their lives.
We took Grandma and Grandpa to Lake Tahoe. Coming from Alaska the sun was a little intense, we tried to time it for evening, so that the sun would be setting, that is the best time to be on the beach anyway, but we finished with our errands a little early and hit the beach about 4ish. The sun was still intense, but the kids had a great time and I hope Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed themselves.
I wish that I had gotten more pictures, but we did get a few cute ones up at Tahoe.
Thanks Mom and Dad O’Barr for all you do, for the example that you are to my children, for your kindness and love. We love having you here, and you are welcome anytime.

  1. Hi Connie! I spend the morning reading over your blog, and I have yet to see a picture of you! Your kids are beautiful and if you are like me you are always behind the camera and not in front of it, but give an old friend something! (Just a little cheese to bring back memories)
    Lots of love,

    It was so cool to see your kids. Your girls look a lot like you. Especially your oldest. I have 5 kids from 4-12. 3 boys and 2 girls. If I had a blog I would send you there…but alas, I am behind the times.

  4. Hey Carolyn,

    Connie would kill me, but I had my camera that day – – – and I took pictures of everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚
