Well I had my fun, the days are done, the girls are gone. It seemed like they were here for such a short time when in fact they were here for 3 weeks! The girls swam and swam until they were totally tired of getting in the pool! I had to work of course so I wasn't able to spend all the time I wanted with my beautiful daughter, but we did have fun together the time that we did share. I got her hooked on a little reality tv I am afraid to say. WELL, when it is real hot outside and you don't feel like taking a walk in the evening or bike ride (which she did) you watch tv in the coolness of the family room! Yes "Big Brother" and a little "Great American Road Trip" is now on the agenda to tivo when she gets home LOLOL. Just a few pics to share of the last couple of weeks.
Brooklyn loves animals so on a walk in the evenings we made sure we had apples and carrots for the horses along the route.
there were many horses of different size and color and she made sure that each one got a treat!
This is a photo I snapped of her with an attitude! She wasn’t opposed to my taking the picture, I think she just wanted me to get it over with…lol
This just happened to be a beautiful sunset shot on one of our many walks in the evenings…
on a walk through the golf course one evening Papa and Brookie hunted the brush for golf balls…
sure enough Papa found one lodged in a tree! It has split in half and was stuck there waiting for someone to spot it and give it to a surprised little girl!
on a visit to see cousins up North, I tried and tried to get everyone together for a photo…I managed to get these little rascals on the trampoline, Brooklyn (top) Ryan (bottom left) Lauren (bottom center) Kyler (right).
The oldest of the grandchildren (Madison) loved giving the younger ones rides on the 4-wheeler around the back yard.
We visited a place called “Heritage Park” across from the Salt Lake zoo. It is a great place for kids to run around, ride ponies, a train, pet animals and just have fun…
Don’t the kids look like they are having fun?
Another photo op was hurried…..6 out of 7 grandkids all together isn’t too bad!
Yes! there is still a drive-in! Right down the road from Mikes there is a drive-in theater! Camille popped pop corn and fixed treats for everyone. We had a great time!
Papa and I parked right next to the little ones so that they could go back and forth in our car and then on the seats and then in our car and on our laps then back to mom and dad in the van…it was a great night!
with luggage in tow and packed into the car…
it was time to say goodbye until next time….
Papa sped them off to the Las Vegas airport while I cried myself to work…..
Good bye girls….until next time….love and hugs
Mom, Grammy, Mema…
