Jay’s grandfather lives in Phoenix, Arizona and while we were living in the area we had the opportunity to visit him, Grandpa Fred, and his wife, Oaksun. We really enjoyed our visit. This was the first time our children met their great-grandfather.
Oaksun, Jay’s grandfather’s wife, was a wonderful hostess- she made us feel so welcome. She was great with the girls. They had fun picking citrus fruit out of her and her neighbor’s backyards-oranges, grapefruit, tangelos and lemons. We then had a lunch of Costco pizza and yummy homemade lemon bars and chocolate chip cookies. She certainly knew the way to the kids’ hearts.
Pickle ball is a pretty hot sport inn the Phoenix- area. It’s kind of like tennis- the racquet and ball are a bit different and I think the court may be a bit smaller- anyway, the concept is the same. A lot of the older population play and it is great exercise. We found that Grandpa Fred is pretty good at racquet ball and it really keeps him active and in shape. He plays almost everyday.
