    Final countdown! Plus, GRAND Social No. 204 link party for grandparents

    Final Countdown

    With mere hours remaining in my desert visit, I'm soaking up as much fun in the sun with my grandkiddos as I can.

    Shooting as many photos as I can, too. Here are a few I especially love:

    toddler and book
    Jak enjoys a book break.

    boy dives in pool
    Mac dives in.

    little league baseball pitcher
    Bubby on the mound, striking 'em out!

    I'm now off to nab as many hugs as possible before I fly home tomorrow!

    Enjoy the GRAND Social, my friends!

    GRAND Social No. 204

    Thank you for participating in this week's GRAND Social!

    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.

    How sweet. Your pictures show what a wonderful time you are having. It does go way too fast when we get a visit in.

    I'm glad you had fun with your grandboys, Lisa! I'm sure you are already planning your next trip to see them again.

    Love the pictures of your grandsons! I'm glad that you've been able to spend some precious time with them.

    Sorry to be so late to the party! I love all the pictures and I am so glad you had such a great time even if it probably did seem short! Hopefully you are planning another trip already!
