Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts…

The Girl and her beau came to visit for four days. They brought my grandbaby, too, and don’t think for a minute that I didn’t talk to him so she would know what my voice sounds like. Did you see what I did there? That’s so the baby will know it doesn’t matter if he is a girl or she is a boy. Grandma will love you always!

We had such a great time. I’m sure you’re dying to know all the things we did.

Well, we did a little of this…




a LOT of this…




With the Girl around, there is always some silliness…

They never missed an opportunity to pose for us…


But the best pose of all?

Was this one…



How many parents get to see their daughter become engaged?!
The cougars at the next table sure enjoyed it, too!

Congratulations to my Girl and MJ!


Thank you for letting us be a part of your special moment.

Then off they went, to live happily ever after. I miss them already.


  1. What a great visit! Congratulations to the happy couple. Your daughter is beautiful and her future husband is very handsome. What a nice little family they will be.

  2. You had me at the seafood. Dang that looked good.

  3. Aww Dawn! I love all your posts, but this one made me cry.

    Just the sweetest thing ever.

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Where was that? I'm trying to place the restaurant! And she doesn't look preggers at all!

  5. Aww so sweet! That gave me goose bumps. So glad you were able to be there and witness such a wonderful occasion!!

  6. Sounds like a great visit.

    You must be an awesome MIL (to be) for your daughter's fiance to want to include you at such as important time.

  7. Awww. It brought a smile to this old hopeless romantic's heart. They are such a cute couple. Congratulations all around!

  8. As the mother of MJ (soon to be son-in-law) thank you so much for sharing the pics. I heard all about it but pictures are worth a thousand words. Can't wait to meet you Dawn (and Steve). Other Grandma-to-be

  9. I'm crying in my coffee right now! What an adorable couple - you must be so proud and happy. What an awesome summer this is turning into!

  10. Awwww, that's so wonderful that he waited to propose in front of you!! And your daughter is hot.

  11. What a gorgeous couple! That's going to be one pretty grandbaby.

  12. Somebody looks just like her mom!

  13. Congratulations! So happy for you. :)


I would love to hear what you have to say!
