A Grandparent's Dream

I have had the most exciting four days you can imagine--well, all grandparents will know exactly what I am talking about.  I am taking care of our grandson  while Mom and Dad are gone to a conference.  He is so much fun, and inspires me to act so silly.  We play ball, slide on the slide, play in the water, and read books.  Rhys is almost 19 months old, and doesn't walk; he runs.

When we were on our morning walk, I caught a baby horned toad for him to inspect.

He loved watering the plants in the backyard.  His Papaw let him work on his laptop, and saved Rhys' first document.  As you can see, Rhys loves to push buttons.

Papaw had to inspect the automatic watering system, and Rhys checked out the water output.

Alas, his parents will be back today, and they will take over the raising of Rhys.  It has been so much fun, and I hope I get another chance to babysit very soon.


  1. We appreciate you and Bobby so much! I don't know which is funnier - Rhys naked pouring water or Rhys fully clothed in the water. Hmmmm...lets just say I'm glad I wasn't around to clean him up!

  2. The clean up was easy, however, if and when he finds a mud hole clean up will be a different story!

  3. awww those pictures are just precious! Looks like y'all had a wonderful time together!
