I’m feeling full of creative sparks today, so I’m joining Alyce, At Home With Books, for Saturday Snapshot.

Just share a photo you’ve taken, or one snapped by family/friends.  And link up.

Today, as I’ve done a lot lately, I’m sharing some more pictures of grandkids.

I like the matching Tie-Dyed Shirts!

Now I’m doing a segue to my niece and her three children enjoying the outdoors.  They live in the mountains, so they have many lovely surroundings.

Niece Amy, America, Gavin, & Luc


Now I’m eager to see what the rest of you are sharing!


  1. You always have the most gorgeous shots of your family!! I love them. Thanks so much for sharing. Your boys look very handsome and your niece’s family is in such a beautiful setting.


  2. I love those tie dyed shirts!! I remember them very well!
    The mountains in the bottom photo are amazing!! I’d love to see them in person!

    Thanks for visiting my blog!


    1. Hi, Sheila…Seven grandchildren, plus three step-grandchildren; two of the “steps” have one child each.

      They all had great fun when I lived in the foothill house that had a guesthouse. I sometimes miss it, too…


    1. Me, too, Louise. My daughter and now my granddaughter are still fond of them, but they also like current trends, too. However, I’ve noticed that the tie-dye and other 70s stuff are making a comeback, judging from a store my granddaughter and I visited while shopping for school clothes.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      I want to go visit that mountain retreat, too!


  3. Your grandsons are adorable and I love their T-shirts!

    I cannot imagine what it would be like to live with that kind of scenery in your backyard…your neice, Amy and her children look very happy!

    Great photos! Thank you!


    1. They obviously love it, since they’ve lived in scenic spots ever since they started their lives together, beginning in a gorgeous spot near Santa Cruz and now in Sonora/Jamestown area.

      Thanks for stopping by, Amy.


    1. Thanks, Diane…I do enjoy them…even the teenagers! LOL

      The thing about teenagers who are grandchildren…I don’t have that same feeling of ultimate responsibility as I did with my own kids. That allows for more fun….

      Hope you have a great weekend!


    1. Yes, in many ways, I envy my niece and her lovely setting….and here in my city, we’re 10 minutes from the foothills (where I used to live) and 45 minutes from the mountains. But then I think of things like cell reception and Internet…and decide that I’ll just enjoy visiting the mountains.

      Thanks for stopping by, Leslie.
