Hello friends– I’m pretty much sprawled out on the couch this morning– winding down after 3 busy days of Grammy Camp with those wacky, lovable, full of fun grand-girls. It was a fine time– and we tried to stick to our two Grammy Camp Rules: #1. Eat ice cream once a day #2. No Grumping (that one had a couple infractions!)
Our Saturday outing was to the Discovery Science Museum– trying out all the exhibits with Grandpa Larry.
Playgrounds are high on our Grammy Camp list and we managed a couple of good ones.
And we spent a sunny afternoon painting picture frames in the backyard.
Three pajamaed girls followed Treasure Hunt clues to find sprinkles, whipped cream, bananas, chocolate sauce… so next morning we could fix up our Oatmeal Sundaes for breakfast– started the days with “breakfast & Bible stories”
Friday we baked up some chocolate chip pumpkin bread and delivered them to Great Grandparents with a a rousing (noisy?) version of “Gobble Gobble Gobble Fat Turkeys are We!” — and had extra hangout time with Great Grandma Honey for her 87th birthday dinner with the family.
And my favorite part of the weekend was reading Thanksgiving books and sketching out blessings on our Thankful Heart Charts.
We ended the weekend at Yogurtland to get in our daily ice cream before we hit the road back up to Ojai (some people had more toppings than yogurt!)
Thanks Charlotte, Maryann and Jobay– for all the songs and hugs and giggles. It’s a joy to watch you grow year by year…
