While we’re there we visited all the relatives who live around their. Logan really enjoyed visiting his nieces and nephews because he doesn’t get to see them much either. They had a lot of catching up to do.
As all grandparents do, they spoil him, but in a good way. His grandmother would cook what ever he wanted for dinner. She even made an excellent cheesecake especially for him and another one for us to eat. It was so good I could have eaten the whole thing by myself but I didn’t. Logan & I like pretty much the same foods but Logan is picky about some meats. He is good about trying different foods but usually does not care too much for meats. They bought him a few games for his Game Boy Advanced and their X-Box 360. He got to test them out a lot while he was there without getting into trouble for it. He would have if he were at home with his mother. He loves it when he is out from under his mother’s watchful eyes. He can just be himself, a good normal great seven-year-old boy.
His grandparents live near the beach so we went to the shore and played at an arcade along the boardwalk for about two hours. They had a hunting game that he loved playing. He got to shoot rams, wild boars, deer, and other animals that he was really not supposed to shoot, but he did just for the fun of it. All the games gave out tickets which you can turn in four prizes. He did pretty well by collecting about 220 tickets. He had little trouble choosing what he wanted for his tickets but he managed to use them all. He was happy with what he chose.
I wish that we could go down to visit them every weekend that I have been bought it is about a two-hour drive and the cars that I have had lately were not to dependable. The car that I have now, a purple in 1995 Ford Escort two-door, made it there are Intact without a hitch.
Even though my ex-wife does not get along with her parents and would never consider taking our son to visit his grandparents on her own, I think it’s important. I do not have memories of grandparents at all. I cannot remember my mothers or father’s parents at all. I try to give my son not only what he needs but what I never had his age. At least I can enjoy it through him.
I have 100 reasons to thank his Gramdparents for having us over for the weekend and all they did to make it a special weekend for both of us to remember forever. So if they read this, thank you so much 100 times over from both of us, we had a blast and hope to come back soon.
