Oh what a great summer we’ve had. The kids just loved playing in the water.
Here is my precious grandson at the waterpark.
This past weekend my husband and I took a little get a way trip to Vicksburg, Mississippi.
We wanted to visit the famous Civil War battlefield where Gen. Ulysses S. Grant captured the city after a six week siege.
Over 20,000 Union and Confederate soldiers died in this battle.
The famous U.S.S Cairo was sunk in the battle and raised from the river 100 years later.
We learned some interesting facts in the Civil War Museum.
Ever wondered where this phrase came from?
Some things never change…only the price!
The Old Court House was built in 1858.
This weekend we went to see Cars 2. Finally a movie just for my grandson!
After the show I bribed my grands for a quick picture on these pretty stairs outside the theater.
And they did just great!
Now, I just adore my girls, but this little guy melts my heart every time!
OK, he’s a charmer, what can I say?
After the show, we took all the kids to Barnes and Nobles to read some books in the children’s section. Cole found a Cars 2 book, which made him very happy!
Grace and I made a quick shopping trip and found her a new backpack for school, which she was so proud to model for me.
Oh, what a great joy and delight it is to be a Grammy!
For Texture Tuesday the theme is pink.
Yes…a color I never get tired of these days.
What else can be said about the handiwork of God?
Enjoyed a very patriotic 4th of July celebration.
This is the flock of geese that live in our neighborhood pond. It was fun seeing them all together when we took our evening walk.
I don’t know where you live, but the thermometer on our patio testified that it was a “HOT” Fourth of July down here.
Oh, I just love fresh corn roasted on the grill!
And my husband is “King of the Grill”! He cooked up some of the most delicious steaks, sausage, and ribs. The son if a chef, and he can he ever cook! Thanks sweetie, I’m still stuffed.
Now inside, the temperature was just right, and my grandson’s smile made my day!
And I even got my sweet Kayla to put on this Stature of Liberty hat. I “pinky” promised this would NOT go on FB, but she didn’t say anything about my blog. Her reward was the picture below!
Yummy… A nice treat!
In the afternoon, we went down to the river to watch the reenactment of a WWII bombing raid over the USS Kid war museum.
It was so neat watching the vintage planes zooming in as guns were firing and bombs exploded in the river around the ship!
What a great day it was indeed!
1. Color Pop
I just love the color of my granddaughter’s bathing suit.
I went for my first stress/echo test this week. Just peering though this door was a a little scary for me.
Thought it would be cool to do an X-ray of my son getting this x-ray at St. Jude. He is a brain tumor survivor, and we are so blessed.
I love watching my granddaughter play with Nemo.
Hide and seek, you’re it!
