Grand Kids

My family life continues to be very active, this blog has been mostly an account of our family life, our celebrations, our activities, vacations, etc. etc. We continue to be very active and the celebrations just keep piling up. We have so many that now we kindda have to pick and choose, otherwise it is just too exhausting.

Last Sunday after mass my son and daughter in law invited us to their house for a "just because" reunion. It was like bring a dish let's have a pot luck. So lots of us showed up and had a really good time. While I ate and ate, the kids were out swimming and playing on the play station.

Food, swimming, and games! If you ask me that is just a recipe for a good time. All my grand kids were there so since I always carry my camera with me I decided to make ME the center of attention and hire anyone around me to capture some pretty cool images.

I am lucky and blessed to be able to have all my kids and grand kids at the same place and the same time on any given moment. It kills me to read how so many of you out there only get to see yours once or twice a year.

So, anyway I just thought I share some of these images.

This is me with Brianna, my first grandkid. Not the oldest but the first.

This is me with Talyanna, my oldest grandchild.

And this is the self titled "La Princesa" Alayna. Alayna is my #5 grand child.

Jose your wonderful family have enough love to spread across the whole wide world.....

These are truly priceless pictures.

Can't imagine my life not knowing you. You have been such a blessing!

Jose said...

Awww thank you Wanda, you know the feeling is reciprocal.

MrManuel said...

Lucky guy! I will settle for regular kids for now!

Michelle said...

That's a whole lot of Grandkids old man!

Jose said...

Michelle, I didn't have a picture of me with Arielle handy. Find me one so I can add it.

ChrisJ said...

Definitely Cool photographs, Jose. You'd never survive my life. We have none! But then after 40 years of teaching, I wonder if I'd survive yours. Peace and quiet is a precious commodity for me! But I know you thrive on your family -- noise or no noise.
