Grandkids weekend!

We kept my daughters children Cole and Riley this weekend. Well pappy and Cole went to WV for their adventure. They went to a man made lake for swimming and a zoo in WV.

They also saw a coyote go through our yard at the farmhouse.

 Well I kept Riley and Sat. we headed out for our day of adventure. First we stopped at a couple yard sales.
At this one yard sale there was a little girl and she was showing Riley all sorts of things. Riley ended up getting a purse and jewelry box and play cell phone case. It was so cute, we drove by this one house that had bicycles setting all in a row at their house, there must have been at least 50 bikes. (the people must buy old bikes and fix them up to sale).
 It was so cute, Riley looked at me and said, "Wow maw, alot of kids sure live in that house and that house is little, I bet some of them have to sleep in the kitchen in sleeping bags."   That really made me laugh, kids can say the cutest things.

Then we stopped and played mini golf, Riley says that was her favorite thing that we did.
We stopped at Walmart of course for a toy, one for her brother too.

Then we ate lunch at pizza hut, I let her pick where we should eat.

We also stopped at a really nice museum  called, "America on Parade", it is located at Shenandoah Caverns in Mt. Jackson, Va.
The museum has old floats that were displayed in many parades such as the Rose Bowl and many other parades. I wasn't aware that the floats were so large.

She had to wear one of my nightgowns, she forgot hers.
She said she looked like a princess in mine. He He

Look how small she is compared to these floats.

Well it was a girls day out and we had lots of fun,
grandkids sure are a joy.

And little Jake came over and spent last night with us, he will be two next month and talking up a storm.
All three are so special in their own way!!! They are lots of fun!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
