  1. You are truly blessed. None of my grand children have lived close enough for that kind of adventure.
    I always go to them when possible💕

    • I do feel blessed to have some of my ‘grands’ close by. I’m going to OH at Christmas to see the others.

  2. What an adventure for all concerned! Thanks for sharing all the details about the prep and then all the fun you had!

    • Thanks for enjoying my grandparenting fun, Glenda. I know you have many fun times of your own with your ‘grands.’

  3. I loved every word and it makes feel so good that you are living so close to them and have such a great time being together! A LONG time ago when my ‘then’ only grandchild, Heather, was five or six years old (she is now 44 !!)we were on our way driving from Frankfort, Paducah for my large family reunion and had car problems when we were about half way there. By the time we arrived everyone had left except one sister and family who were locking the doors of the center where we met each year. We were spending the night with one of my brothers and family so we had enough time to go to each ones home and have a very brief visit! I had five siblings who lived in the area so we did not get to stay long enough to do much “visiting” and catching up on all the family news! On the way home the next day I told Heather how sorry I was that we missed all the great food and she missed seeing and playing with her cousins and I had to “more or less” drag her from one place to another. She was listening and she did not hesitate to respond by saying, “but Grandmother, we were together!” That was the most important thing to her and it was to me! As she and I were getting ready for bed that night she mentioned it was okay that we had car trouble because there was nothing that could ever happen that would make her not love me!! WOW ! It still brings tears to my eyes and makes me think of how God loves us the same way!!
    Happy Fall! Margaret

    • Margaret, what a touching story of your time with Heather. It gave me chills. You are blessed indeed.
