The main reason for being in Blue Island was to babysit our grandchildren while their parents went off to a gathering for librarians. The best part (in my opinion) of having grandkids is I get to be a kid again. I have no problem getting down on the floor, or the grass, playing on the playground or in the sandbox. Give me Legos, building blocks, puzzles, toy trucks and cars, whatever, I’m game. Since the weather was very nice during our visit, we played outside a lot. I discovered that playing with a camera while playing in the sandbox can be fun.
