|Annie at Dillon Beach|
Entertaining Annie, the grandlab, is easy. A trip to Dillon Beach for a few hours of chasing a ball and a sea gull or two, swimming in the surf and having her people nearby makes for a happy puppy. The scenery is spectacular and the day is perfect and the camera is in hand, batteries charged, card inserted!
Entertaining Christina, the 4 1/2 year old granddaughter takes a bit more imagination. On a walk through downtown one day Howard and I spotted A Likely Story, a children's bookstore offering Sunday story-telling with music and puppets performed by Scott the Storyteller. The bookstore and Scott lived up to our expectations. Christina spent an hour mesmerized, with bursts of laughter, and enthusiastic participation. The grandparents were happy, so happy that we purchased a fairy-tale book, a CD of Scott's stories, a cheese burrito for her lunch, and topped off with an ice cream at Powell's. It doesn't get much better than this!
