"Sweetest" evening with the grandkids

Gary and I went and spent some time with my mom yesterday, and on our way home stopped by Rick & Ali's and the kiddos to spend some time with them too.
We all went to downtown Temecula for some dinner and fun. We ate at the fun hamburger place with outdoor seating and a mister. It was good food and a fun atmosphere. The people sitting in the next booth brought their dogs with them. Haylee was just sitting there loving on their dogs. I had been to this same place a few years before with my mom, and knew there was a fun candy store close by. So, off we went looking for it. How cute is this picture of Grandpa with the kiddos?
This wasn't the candy store, but we couldn't pass up a cute photo op. Zach was not interested as you can see in the background.
This was such a fun "Sweet Shop". I knew the kids would love it, and they did.
I told the kids that they could all fill up a bag with candy, and Grandma would buy it for them. They had so much fun going around looking at all the different candies to put inside their bag.
Decisions, decisions, decisions.

All Zach wanted was a sucker, and he wasn't going to wait until we payed. He was soooo cute walking around the store with his sucker.
Paying for the candy with Grandpa. I have to say that this was the MOST expensive candy we have ever purchased, but it was worth every penny watching the kids' faces light up with joy as they filled their bags.
How cute are these faces???? One of the joys of being a grandparent is pay back to your children, by getting the grandkids all sticky in the car and revved up on sugar.....ahhhh sweet revenge!!! hahahaha

Zach didn't even last the whole 15 minute trip back home. But, he does have a tight grip on that sucker of his.
I think the memories of this night will last a long time. It was such a fun time.
