Family, Gratitude and Joy

Day 316 – A Year of Gratitude and Joy – Silliness

There’s something completely joyous about being silly with your grandkids.

Walking the mall to deal with a few errands was followed by lunch in the food court, ensuring everyone got what they wanted. Corn dog nuggets for me from A&W, a Philly steak sandwich for Greg, DQ for the grands, and Chinese for my son. 

But the silliness really began when we spent an hour at the arcade at the local mall, chasing the young ones around, playing Space Invaders, air hockey, and Super Bikes. 

As much fun as the kids were having, so were the adults. Greg looked silly on the fake motorcycle, especially with Enzo in his arms. 

Enzo may not be a fan of the motorcycle idea.

Two of the kids were nearby on the roller coaster simulator. 

Squeals and giggles filled the air on this “ride.”

Greg issued a Space Invaders challenge … and refuses to say who won.

The ultimate, “Grandpa, you’re goin’ down” concentration.

We also got the kids to play air hockey for the first time. I was torn – who do I root for? So I stood in the middle and cheered both of them on. 

Every score got a cheer!

We tried to cram everyone into the photo booth. Enzo would have none of it and only the two younger ones stuck around for the actual pictures. 

My best friend and I had a photo strip tradition. I’m passing it on to my grands.

It was a day filled with laughter and love, hugs, tickles and silliness – aren’t those the best kind of days?

There’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored. Being silly with your grandkids keeps you young and life’s journey that much more fun!
