No, the information that must be collected includes things like:
- Who will or won't eat what, which can get confusing when it is "times eight".
- Where is the closest bathroom when out shopping. I still remember their location in my old haunts. But I don't necessarily still frequent those locations anymore since the Tri-Cities have grown up and sprouted shopping areas of their own.
- And, to the point for today's blog, where are the best playgrounds.

On Memorial Day weekend, several of us made the way across the house from our hosts to entertain young ones in that conveniently located park. The swings garnered some attention, but it was the spider-web-climbing-thingy that drew them all in. The elder grands taunted the younger from the highest reaches of the spider's lair. This did not dissuade the more diminutive from their attempts. They may not have reached the top,but they did grow a foot or three. Not a bad afternoon's growth spurt!
And sometimes, the chronologically advanced cannot resist the attempt to show the following generation how it's done. Way to go Colin and Emma!
This last pictures, though, is proof positive that I served my penance and earned the right to grandones! I'm not sure what I should call the show offs who conquered the spider's web. I had only one questions for them as they displayed their prowess: who is your mother, anyway? Sigh. I do love those goofballs, too.
