A Marble-ous time in Glanworth!

Many years ago when our kids were little, we bought a game called Marbleworks (Discovery Toys). We had loads of fun with it because the various pipes and tubes and parts can be configured in countless ways to send marbles down a wild, noisy, roller-coaster type ride. If the players each choose a certain marble, the game becomes a race to see which marble makes it to the finish line first. 
Great fun!
A few months ago, I found the game again and cleaned it up, then last week I brought it to the Glanworth Library. We had four kids all working together to make a wild marble run! I was having so much fun with them that I forgot to take pictures! I remembered to take a couple later when some kids had already gone home.

Isn't this a great set-up?

Another great use for a pile of books!

Have a really fun day,

Leo is #1!

Somehow I thought maybe time wouldn't whiz by as quickly with a grandchild as it did with our own kids. I think, in fact, it has gone even quicker! How is it possible that a helpless baby can become his own little person, so funny, sweet and really, the king of our hearts, in one far-too-short year?

Leo is one!

We celebrated with balloons...


...(there was a heavily-iced cupcake on Leo's tray)...

... and fun...

...with Leo and his loving family. 

The great-grandmas couldn't resist reading one of Leo's new books.

And Leo couldn't resist "reading" one of his birthday cards!

A beautiful day for a beautiful one-year-old!

Enjoy your day,

Judy Ann
