    Water World Wow! Plus GRAND Social No. 259 link party for grandparents

    Water World Wow!

    I recently received an invitation from Water World to spend a day at their park with my family for free. So that's what Jim and I — along with Brianna, Patrick, and my bonus grandson, James — did yesterday.

    I'll be sharing details — and pics, of course — of our time at the thrilling waterpark just outside downtown Denver in the next week or so, so stay tuned for that. (Small spoiler: We had an amazing time!)

    In the meantime, thank you for joining me for this week's GRAND Social link party for grandparents!

    GRAND Social No. 259

    I look forward to your links! I appreciate you sharing them and reading the links of others! Cheers!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

    <div style="text-align: center;"><span class="full-image-inline ssNonEditable"><img src="" alt="" /></span></div>

    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    I bet you did have a wonderful time. I didn't wear a bathing suit for years because of insecurities with my body. Then I said life is short, this is my body and it is just fine as it is! Sometimes we need to give ourselves some love. I found a bathing suit that would work and have had a blast with the grandkids!

    I wonder when I'll get that kind of review invite. :)
