I love retirement! We just spent 4 days in sunny, 80* Florida visiting with Scott & his family. Lil Scott is growing and changing by the day. He is 27 months old and when I watch him and his mannerisms I see his dad at that age. Same features and actions.
We spent Friday morning making sugar cookies. Waiting for them to cool was the hardest part of the whole process. Getting to ice and add sprinkles was the best part. I think more icing and sprinkles ended up in lil Scott than on the cookies. It was such a joy to share this time with him.
Coop is lil Scott’s brother and he was there Saturday morning before his dad picked him up for the weekend. We made pigs in a blanket for breakfast. The boys rolled out the dough and added the little smokies. Coop was pleased at adding 2 smokies to each blanket stretching them out and pinching up the dough to make a taco looking treat. Lil Scott would wrap two smokies side by side in a double sleeping bag look. Later that day when Coop talked with his mother (she just returned from a week long mandatory seminar for work) He was so excited about the cooking experience and gave her all the details.
We spent Sunday morning visiting with Scott, Theresa & lil Scott before catching our flight back to St. Louis where is was a bone chilling 26*. It is still bitterly cold today but the weekend is looking warmer.
Even with the weather and any other things you might consider, I still would not trade this experience for any other. The long hugs from my grandchildren is all I need. I Love everything about our life.
