    Desert view, plus GRAND Social No. 203 link party for grandparents

    Desert view

    I'm in the desert with my grandsons! Woot! I've been here since late Friday night. My original departure was scheduled for Saturday afternoon but due to Winter Storm Vexo (yes, the true name), I had to change to an earlier flight and dash out of Denver before being snowed in and unable to get to the desert.

    My favorite view so far? This:


    There will be more to come, so be sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, where I'll be sharing now and again while away from home.

    GRAND Social No. 203

    I'm so glad you're here! Link, read, share, and socialize to your heart's content!


    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
    <a rel="nofollow" href="" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    Adorable grandsons, of course! But I am also intrigued by the headless dog! Thank you for rescuing it! :)

    Great picture. I was just in the beautiful Denver airport on Thursday. Had a long layover and got to walk the bridge that connects the old terminal to the new - over the tarmac. Really cool! I would recommend it as a Denver airport destination sight if you have a long layover and want to explore. The info desk gave us some fun background info on it.

    So glad you got there safely. It would have been a shame to miss those cuties.

    Enjoy your time with your adorable grandboys, Lisa! I know they look forward to your visits as much as you do and the quality time you spend with them makes them very happy!

    Let's hope Vexo will be our last bad snowstorm!

    Aw, those boys are too cute. I have several just like that -- of my own crew now grown.

    I'm so glad that you got out of Denver before the storm! I'm so happy that you get to visit those cute grandsons.
