CREATIVE SPARKS: SATURDAY SNAPSHOT — SUMMER DAYS — JULY 28

Welcome to another creative opportunity to showcase photos, via our weekly Saturday Snapshot event, hosted by Alyce, At Home With Books.

This past week, I spent most days hanging out with grandson Noah, enjoying some movies, some lunches, and some time curling up on the sofa.  Here he is watching a movie.

Still watching the movie, he continues enjoying his snack.

While he was engrossed, I was snapping shots of other parts of the room.  Like the new arrangement of decorative items on the sofa table….

Or the halltree by the front door….

Meanwhile, in LA, my three grandchildren (Alec, Aubrey, and Aaron) welcomed another sibling (to join Silas) in their home.  A baby sister named Sidney.

And here she is with her adoring big brother Silas.

Looks like a great summer all around, doesn’t it?  And next week, Alec, Aubrey, and Aaron will accompany their father (my son Brett) to London, for the Olympics.  I can’t wait to see those photos!

What are the rest of you sharing today?  Come on by and leave some comments and links!

  1. Congratulations on your newest grandchild, she looks lovely.

  2. Sidney is beautiful. Does everyone in your family give their children the same first letter in their names? Sidney and Silas — Alec, Aubrey and Aaron.
    Visiting the Olympics is something I’ve never even allowed myself to dream of doing. Can’t wait to see photos. Here’s Mine

    • My former daughter-in-law is the mother of all five kids. The kids she had with my son all have names beginning with “A” and led to us calling them the “A Team.”

      I think the newest babies’ names begin with “S” because of her new surname.

      Thanks for stopping by, Paulita, and enjoy your weekend. Loved your shots of France.

  3. Oh how wonderful! She certainly looks like she’s in good hands :)

  4. What a lovely big extended family you have – makes mine seem very small!

  5. Such a pretty baby! It is so good to have extended family. Well, that’s what my mom says!

    Here is my Saturday Snapshot post!

  6. Just lovely. A grand summer, indeed!

  7. Lovely photos… especially the one of Sidney and Silas. Congratulations!

  8. It sounds like you had a wonderful time with your grandson. I hope they enjoy themselves at the Olympics!

  9. What a fun assortment of pictures and what a precious baby! Thanks for sharing them.

    Here’s my snapshot post this week.

  10. Grandchildren are the best! When they are around, is there anything else to photograph? Congrats!

  11. Noah looks like he really enjoyed that movie!

  12. I hope your family enjoy their trip – it will be the holiday of a lifetime. Hope they let you post some of their photos here.

  13. Little Sidney is adorable. And how wonderful that the grandchildren get to experience the Olympics in London. (I’m a bit jealous!)

  14. I bet you and Noah had a blast! Sidney’s beautiful – it looks like she’s smiling already.

    • She does, doesn’t she? Thanks for visiting, Kathy, and yes, Noah is a lot of fun. When he says he’s bored, I can tease him out of it pretty easily. He’s pretty good at hanging out.

  15. Adorable baby. And it looks like you’ve had a relaxing week.

  16. What lovely photos. And that must be so exciting to head off for the Olympics!

  17. Oh, these photos are adorable!!!! My Saturday Snapshot is here.

  18. What a cutie!! Love me some babies!

    • Oh, and spending time with Noah must have been so much fun!! I had my 2 oldest for 4 days last week and it was sure fun!

      • It was fun with Noah…and exhausting…lol. That part always surprises me, since he’s pretty good at entertaining himself. Thanks for stopping by, Vicki, and enjoy the weekend.

        Babies are definitely some of life’s greatest gifts.

  19. Aww she is adorable, and I love the idea of the same letter, it’s like an extra family bond!

  20. Looks like you got to spend some great quality time with your family! Congrats on the grandchild as well! That is so exciting.

  21. It does look like your grandson is engrossed. :) And congratulations on the fantastically cute new grandchild!

Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
