When Joey visited Grandpa, the first thing they did was sprinkle fish food in Grandpas big fish tank. There were three orange fish, two yellow fish, and one blue fish. There was also one red-and-white fish, which was Joeys favorite. Joey loved feeding the fish with Grandpa, but there was one small problem.
When Joey wanted Grandpa to read a book with him, Grandpas glasses were missing. Grandpa looked under the couch and under the cushions and under the rug, but he couldn't find his glasses. But guess what happened? When Joey was watching the fish swim in and out of the castle, Joey found them.
"Here they are," said Joey, "in the fish tank."
"Well, what do you know!" said Grandpa. "How did they get in there?"
Joey dried off the glasses, and Grandpa put them back on.
After Joey and Grandpa read the book, they wanted to make some pancakes. Joey mixed all the ingredients in a big bowl. Grandpa got the pancake toppings off the tall shelf and handed them to Joey. Joey made Grandpa his first pancake and set it on his plate. Joey loved making pancakes with Grandpa, but there was one small problem.
When Grandpa wanted to read the newspaper, Grandpas glasses were missing. Grandpa looked under the table and under his chair and under his pancake, but he couldn't find his glasses. But guess what happened? When Joey was making more pancakes, Joey found them.
"Here they are," said Joey, "in the pancake mix."
"Well, get a load of that," said Grandpa. "How did they get in there?"
Joey washed and dried the glasses, and Grandpa put them back on.
After Joey and Grandpa ate their breakfast, they decided to go to the grocery store. Joey hopped into Grandpas pickup truck, and down the road they went. Grandpa and Joey sang their favorite songs all the way there. Joey loved riding in Grandpas truck.
When they got to the grocery store, Joey pushed the cart up and down the aisles. He helped pile things in the cart for Grandpa. When they were all finished, they lined up to pay for the groceries.
Joey had fun playing with the baby ahead of them. He made funny faces, and the baby laughed. Then while Grandpa was busy with the groceries, the baby reached out and grabbed Grandpas glasses.
"Sweetheart," said the mother, "please give back the mans glasses."
"Goo, goo, gaga," said the baby and tried putting the glasses back on Grandpas head. Then out the door the mother rushed.
