My mercy! Now don't you just want to kiss those sweet cheeks?
We spent a fun day at a Aquatic Center which is only a little over an hour drive for us. The kids had a ball.
One side of the park was geared towards the younger children. The other side had swimming pool, a larger slide with tunnel for the older kids and the Lazy River that you can float down.
It's a small water park but honestly, plenty to do and keeps the kids entertained. I love it that it is a day trip and it doesn't break the bank to go! They had things for younger and older children to do. My favorite was the Lazy River. Nothing like just floating down the river. I did let the older grandchildren talk me into sliding through a tunnel to the pool. YEP, done it ONE TIME! Felt like I was having an MRI! Not good for claustrophobic people like me!
So, I decided after that I needed ice cream!
We also celebrated the birthday of my middle daughter, Melissa.
My daughters and I enjoyed a girls night out. So much laughter and of course the food was awesome.
The dessert was... well...I will let you guess if you think it was good or not!
This birthday girl celebrated all weekend. My daughters and their spouses had a triple day date and went paddle boarding and out to eat. They enjoyed it so much and I love it that my daughters and spouses do things together.
Which meant that several of us grandmothers got to keep the grandchildren! I had three of the five. Yep, that baby looks like she has a wig on but that hair is tamed to what it normally looks like when she wakes up. My Grandson helped Papa cook breakfast for everyone and my oldest granddaughter who is 13 is such a great help.
Last time this sweet girl stayed with Nana we had a makeup session!
This time we had a hair fixing session.
She loves to brush her teeth. I just can't believe she is already 15 months old.
But, I have taken the time to smell the
roses...I mean Rosemary!
I have several heirlooms of Rosemary and I have cut and cut and used and used. I love the smell! I actually baked a fresh loaf of Rosemary and Lemon bread for a sweet young friend of mine and her family.
Yep, I'd say "It's A Family Life".
WE MAY NOT HAVE IT ALL TOGETHER....BUT WE HAVE IT ALL!
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
