Puddles o' fun, plus GRAND Social No. 151 link party for grandparents

Welcome back!

My spring break didn't go quite as I'd expected thanks to an unexpected bout with a bug that's just now beginning to loosen its grip. Still, it was a break, and we all need one of those now and then.

I'm glad to be back, though, and I'm doubly glad you're here with me!

Puddles o' fun

Racking your brain for something fun to do with the grandkiddos during the oft-rainy days of spring? Make the most of that moisture by grabbing some boots (or not!) and pouncing in some puddles.

These kids demonstrate just exactly how it's done:


There's nothing like spring for splish, splashy fun!

GRAND Social No. 151 link party for grandparents

No boots required—or clean-up afterward necessary—for GRAND Social fun! Dive right in by sharing some links and/or reading the links of your fellow grandparents. Thank you for joining us!

Cheers to spring and to GRAND Socialing! (Yeah, not a word—but it works!)

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.
  • 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 your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • Adding 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="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" 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 blogger, 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.
