Something Funny Is In The Air

because Grandma J took an afternoon nap yesterday and ended up in a far away place. Don't ask her where because she couldn't tell you in a zillion years. But Grandma J knows it had to be pretty far away because it zapped her of all her energy. How else would you explain the fact that she woke up from her nap at two in the morning?

Since she skipped lunch, due to a late morning stop at Jack in the box, she estimated that she had now missed two full meals! Since skipping meals isn't the norm for Grandma J, she fixed herself a late dinner....then went to bed..sleeping until eight this morning.

Yesterday, Grandma J took her grandchildren and friends to a water park in another town to the east. It wasn't anything Six Flagish in size or price.....which makes it perfect!





Summer Fun Water Park in Belton, Texas, is a good place to cool off when the temperatures start leaning on the 100 degree mark. This was the end of the road for Grandma J and JJ....but next time they will take that bridge across the Leon River to see what's on the other side.






It's always so sad when JJ has to say good-bye to his big sister and brother. It's even sadder lately with Phillip Johnny Bob gone.



It was a quiet ride back home for JJ. He knows he can't get on Grandma J's lap while she's driving, unless she gives him the OK. Today she didn't do that until they were off the highway....so JJ just stared at a spill on Grandma J's shirt....calling DIBS!





He is such a sweetheart....after about an hour of playing and cuddling, Grandma J said good-bye. Do you think it was easy?

Even just reading the words "water park" in the same breath as "heat" exhausts me. Pardon me, I need a nap.

Do you think that JJ is jealous because PJB got to visit CBW, or that he's pleased to have your undivided attention??

Either way, he's ADORABLE!!!

I have a big crush on JJ. You can send him to me in NYC if he needs a permanent vacation. :-)

Are you saying you let JJ eat food off your chest?

JJ is so cute! That look has "I love you GJ" all over it!

Suzanne said...

Oh Colin... You are so cute ;) Of course she lets him eat food off her chest. Keeps it off the car seat and floor. That way the car is kept tidy. That's one of the reasons we get dogs. :-) I think I'll name my next dog "swiffer" :-)

He's adorable!!!

You are so funny. I think if you wake up from a nap at 2 in the morning it is not called a nap, it is called sleeping. :)
I bet the kids loved the water park. Don't they have a spot for cute little dogs?????

JJ is just adorable to bits : ). I love that kind of water park too. Who needs psychotically huge and expensive? I wish that place was here in PA. Maybe you should move here and open a franchise. XO : )

We lived down the street from that waterpark in 2005. I miss Belton, strangely enough. Walking distance to just about everything.

Pumpkin Delight said...

OMG! That picture of JJ watching his family leave is adorable. What a cutie!

Jen said...

Awww look at that face!
I see Chihuahua. :D He can visit me anytime and then I will have the 3 Amigos.

Grandma J said...

JJ is half Chihuahua and half Maltese...and 100% Macho Man. I like Suzanne's name of Swiffer! lol

Hula Hank said...

Isn't he just adorable! Plus hat bridge is just begging to crossed!

I love that you took a nap and woke up at 2 am. Who does that? I wish I could. And then you made dinner! Hilarious.
