Grandkid Visit

Published by at 4:51 pm under San Onofre 2008

Deidra and Dom flew in from Texas last Tuesday and have been getting their Poppa/Nana fix.  Well, something like that.  Last weekend we all went to Wideners so they could see their great grandparents.  While we were there Dianna and Deidra went to Marie’s shower that was held at Julie’s house.  While they were at the shower, Dom and I  spent the afternoon at Julie’s pool so we all had a good time.

This week the kids have been surfing.  For real, as Deidra would say.  We made arrangements with the surf camp next door to give them some lessons, which they were very nice to do.  Two of the instructors are girls from Australia and we let them use our wireless internet to keep tabs on their families, so they were glad to be able to do something for us in exchange.

Both kids were able to get up and ride in to shore several times but they are probably not ready for the North Shore of Hawaii just yet.

Next week they fly back to Texas and start school.  This was only a two week visit, but we have all had a good time.

    Is that your camera or is Deidra really that red? Dom is a bit red but not as much. Lot’s of Aloe would be good.

    Or maybe it’s your monitor. :-) They have both gotten a lot of sun but have been wearing plenty of sunscreen.

    They look like professionals! Well at least better than I would! ;)

    Wow, has Dom grown up in the last year! He almost doesn’t look like the same kid. They both look great on the waves. Sounds like fun. Were they tired?

    So when are we going to see pictures of Poppa/Nana out there on the boards?

    Yeah, good question! When are we gong to see Poppa/Nana out there on the boards? With the trainers right next door I see little reason not to go for it!

    I suppose Dianna could try it if she had an inkling, but I don’t see any reason to take chances with an artificial disc in my back. Besides, the water is way to cold for me. Snorkeling in the Caribbean is much more to my liking.

    I must have the same bad monitor at work that I do at home. I second the Caribbean.

    Has nothing happened since August 14? There must be something that could be told, like a sea gull eating your potato chip, or a lost whale getting beached on your site.

    Must be pretty quiet over there on the beach…
