Grandpa had a great time taking care of Baby Iris today. After taking an aerobic stroll at a nearby park, the two of us returned home for some real "hands on" activity. It all started with Grandpa bringing out pots, pans and spoons, which Baby Iris gleefully banged together. Much of our time was interspersed with "peek a boo" sessions, which Baby Iris just loves. Her giggles are so precious. Being a grandparent is so much fun and I even caught Baby Iris reading about Zebras! Now that's early literacy!
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
