We had a wonderful vacation week visiting our granddaughter and her parents in North Carolina. Katherine just turned two years old and what a busy little girl she is! So many interests.

One morning Katherine and I took a walk and sat for a little while and shared an apple. A squirrel started digging a hole for his nut very close to us. Then we watched him race up a tree and come back down with another nut which he buried in another spot. Katherine asked me to pick her up so she could follow him with her eyes, up and down the tree, burying one nut after another in the ground under the leaves. After a while Grandpa Tim found us to tell us breakfast was ready and he took the picture below.

    1. It is a such a sweet age, in spite of all the cute little ways to say “no” to the adults in her life! 🙂 When we got on the plane to head home we overheard a little boy, slightly older, saying “why” over and over again. So much to look forward to. 🙂

  1. I’m just catching up on blogs, Barbara, and couldn’t wait to read the one entitled “TWO,” as I guessed its contents, and I was not disappointed. The photos of your granddaughter are lovely. She is lovely, of course, But what I noticed most of all is the joy in your face/frame/posture as you watch, play, and teach your grand little one. I recognize that joy – we grandmoms just get filled up with the happy ‘soul’fullness of our grands, don’t we?

    1. We do indeed, Pam! Whoever coined the phrase “bundle of joy” certainly captured the magical state of being grandparents. Whenever I ate apples I used to think of the times I shared apples with my father, and now there is a new memory of what happened when I shared an apple with my granddaughter. Simple, exquisite joys!
