Been to the Park Lately?

Hey, Y'all,
Is that a good question? Well, I have the definitive answer. Yes, I have been to the park and we had a picnic yesterday. Our grandchildren, Daniel and wife, Whitney, came a couple of days ago and yesterday, we got together with her sisters and her grandparents on her daddy's side, and also her mama and all the kids (there were a whole bunch of them. First, before the picnic, the following people went to the recreation center where the kids could play in a big bunch of foam rubber blocks, and then jump on a trampoline: our four great grands, Whitney's nephews and their mama's, Daniel and Whitney, her mama, and me.

Later, we went to Whitney's grandparent's home, and got them and then we went to the park and had a picnic, and watched the kids play on the swings and the slides. It was great fun.

Last night, we went over to Andrew and Julia's home and had supper. The people there were: Carol, Daryl, Me, Daniel, Whitney (their kids - Hannah, Austin, Noah, and Ellie), Matthew and Amy (soon to be newly weds), Emily and her feller, Ben, Andrew and Julia (their kids - 18 month old, Alyssa, and 6 week old Brooke). You should have seen all of us sitting around the table having home made tacos, and talking and just generally having fun.

After supper, we passed around the baby Brooke, and did a lot of more talking and laughing. Then we mothers were given gifts for Mother's Day, and then we got together everyone there and made a family picture which I will be posting after I get home. Look for it next week here at Blabbin' Grammy's place.

This morning, Carol made waffles for us, and then had to leave to do some work inspecting a swimming pool. She is a health department inspector here in Tarrant County. It will be a busy next few days, because as mother of the groom she has a lot of responsibilities to be in charge of. Now I must finish this up because I promised I would be ready to go with her to do a lot of stuff today. Much love to each of you. The great grands are playing this morning here and it is a lot of fun to listen to them running around and playing.

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Bye for now. More later.

So pleased you are enjoying yourself, I go to the park quite often with the grandchildren.
My children despair of me because I like to go down the slide, much to their horror but the grandchildren's delight.

Enjoy you trip away.
Yvonne.

Ya'll have just the best day filled with blessings from above!

Wasn't it hot out in the park? Glad you're having a good time. Sounds like the time is going fast though. What's all the family think about your blogging?

Hello Grammy
Thats what family gatherings should be about - FUN - and parks are the best place to have them. There's room for the little ones to run around and space for tables and chairs for the oldies to sit down and natter. And eat and drink lol
Glad you're enjoying this trip - have fun and make memories the rest of the time you're there

When I first started flying places, we dressed up. Wore hats and heels, not the plane looks like pictures of refugee camps. Have a wonderful Texas Size Visit

Hey, Y'all,
Yeah, it was hot in the park but not really bad. We were in the shade, and were not there an inordinate amount of time. The weather has been really nice here, and not a lot different from East TN. I love hot weather!

Arlee, the family thinks my blogging is fine, I guess, since they all read it and seem to enjoy it.

And yes, I am enjoying myself tremendously!

BTW, this is Friday morning, and the house is beginning to really jump with people coming in and it is about time for the women (girls) to go decorate the church.
