Just the Facts, Ma'am by Gabe

Who:

my Grandma and Grandpa on my dad's side did it



and me and my two cousins, Mallory and Cecily



What:

I went to see my Grandma. I went swimming a lot. Lots and lots of swimming.

And I went to a (what's that thing? where you fire your painting?) , yeah, Ceramics.

I went to see Narnia: Prince Caspian.


And then I went to this fun place called Boomers, where I got a hole in one.

And I went on this long drive to pan for gold.


And I got some new toys. And I went to San Fransisco, all different places.

We don't have a picture of this but we saw this man scaring people who pretended he's like a bush. We got some new clothes. We saw sea lions. We got candy. And I went on stage with this magic trick lady.



And I went to this place where there's this cafe that's all about rainforests.


When:

when I turn 8, everybody who's 8 (or 7 turning 8) goes to my Grandma's house every June. I think that's it.

Where:

in California

Why:

because my Grandma and Grandpa love me and want me to have fun!

I want to say "p.s. at the end my Grandpa and Grandma were exhausted!"

The bush man! I remember him well.... ran into him near pier 49 and nearly had to change my shorts!

Looks like a really great time!

I'm so excited for when my kids are 8 years old to have that fun experience with Grandma and Grandpa too. I loved the picture of Gabe dancing.

Grandparents are the best, that's where my boy is this week! Looks like Gabe had a blast.

Meg said...

So fun!☺

Mahina said...

wow! that is a great tradition to have in the family! i'm sure the kids look forward to turning 8 just for that fun trip!

Laurie said...

That is a great tradition, and Gabe is a superb summarizer.

I love the title here :)

Excellent reporting Gabe!

I love how you included things he said like, "what's that place where they fire your painting...oh yeah, ceramics."

That place you pan for gold looks so cool. California has many wonders :)

Brooke said...

Can I pretend to be 8? Fun, Gabe!
love you all and can't wait to see you in a month.

Great post! Is this our first from Gabe?
Very cool Grandparents!

Anisa said...

I need to get my mother in law to do stuff like this!

Carie said...

Gabe- what a FUN trip!

(I love this idea. Our bishop's parents have an "Especially for Paces" where they invite all the grandkids over the age of 12 and it is just like EFY with cousins minus the dances of course.)

Jacki said...

That sounds like a great tradition for the 8 year olds.

Ah, the Bush Man. My friend Ryan did a documentary on him, and believe or not, he makes like $100,000 a year.

Rochelleht said...

WOW! That is so amazing. What a wonderful, amazing family you guys have.

Bridget said...

What a great tradition to have. Love it. Graet story telling too Gabe. :)

Lindsay said...

Yay Gabe! I'm so glad you had such a great trip...and I heard the airplane ride over was fun too!

Paige said...

I don't know why it says blankie substitute. Is that what you used to call your blog?

Michelle said...

Fabulous trip Gabe! I have a Gabriel at my house too. :)

julie said...

Wow! Lucky boy! I may have to see if Anna, Eleanore, Olivia, and Henry's Grandparents are up for the same weekend?! :)

bloggingchristy said...

I can't wait until my kids turn 8, hopefully all the grandkids will continue to be good so she doesn't stop the tradition or anything!

Kristy said...

What an awesome tradition! How did the age of 8 get chosen? It seems perfect, though, just the right age to be big enough to ride most rides, but young enough to enjoy almost anything you plan.

Great recap!
