Abram Antics

Abrm-38

Kim and I had the blessing of keeping our 2-year-old grandson Abram for 3 1/2 days while his daddy and mommy went on a house-hunting trip.  (Yes, they're moving...boo-hoo for Gramaw...but that's another post...)

He certainly kept us entertained!  Abram is not one to play much with toys...he'd rather investigate REAL things, and he's currently obsessed with candles and fire. So we had lots of candlelit meals...

I think he could literally swing for hours!  Papaw and I tire of it a lot quicker than he does.

Thankfully he does like the porch swing, and we spent hours just hanging out on the porch together.

Why in the world Mama Kitty kept hanging around with us is beyond my understanding...

Abrmgp-94

She could easily have run away from those eager hands, but she was VERY PATIENT as Abram toted her around and never scratched him even once (I think I would have!).

 

Abrmgp-3

This isn't his first ice cream cone...he knew exactly how to eat it!

 

Abrmgp-90

Gramaw primed Abram for our upcoming beach vacation by letting him play with seashells.

 

Abrmgp-10

He LOVED "helping" Papaw!

 

Abrmgp-14

Abrmgp-17

Abrmgp-16

Gathering eggs...

 

Abrmgp-18

Picking...

 

Abrmgp-21

Abrmgp-22

...and EATING raspberries,...

 

Abrmgp-25

Abrmgp-27

Abrmgp-28

...and feeding the goldfish ("very, very hungry fish!").

 

Abrmgp-23

He and Papaw were pals! 

 

Abrmgp-41

He giggled when he saw the baby possum that Papaw caught in the trap they had set in the chickenhouse!

 

Abrmgp-42

Making tunnels with Gramaw's pillows...

 

Abrmgp-45

I wonder where Abram is???

 

Abrmgp-55

Who needs toys...

 

Abrmgp-60

...when you've got canning lids???

 

Abrmgp-106

Do not let this fool you...Abram is totally faking!  He's much too busy to just fall asleep like that!

 

Abrmgp-46

Little Croc feet just melt my heart!

 

Abrmgp-48

Abrmgp-54

More fun with Papaw...

 

Abrmgp-73

...and fun with his four cousins next door!

 

Abrmgp-74

For most kids, this is a water-shooter...

 

Abrmgp-63

...but to Abram it's a power-washer!

 

Abrmgp-31

Speaking of power washing, Abram definitely needed it himself after his very busy days!

 

Abrmgp-35

Abrmgp-37

Abrmgp-38

He loved bathtime in Gramaw's big copper tub!

 

Abrmgp-75

Abrmgp-84

Who knew zip ties, pinecones, and seashells had so much entertainment value?!

 

Abrmgp-85

Abrmgp-83

Abrmgp-88

And then, he went home.  And the cabin felt very still and quiet and even empty again...as it should, I guess.

But we will forever savor the precious memories of our few days filled with...

 

Abrmgp-52

...Abram antics.

Oh goodness, I loved all the photos. I just showed Abram and he narrated it very similar. He had a blast and wants the phone back to look at Gramaw's candles :)
