I hope you all had a great 4th of July. This MawMaw was very happy! For the first time, EVER, all our grandkids were here at the same time. Chuck and his crew arrived first.
They managed to find a few ripe blackberries.
We did hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and sit in the shade most of the day.
My oldest granddaughter, Alexius.
My youngest, Miss Katie.
Everyone was very impressed by the little frogs that are in the “little pond”.
Sam, just being Sam.
The swings got lots of use.
I think the hammock was the most loved though. They spent lots and lots of time making the hammock into a big swing. After we ate, we all took a ride down the Parkway to Mabry Mill. I, of course, forgot my camera but Dave took a picture of everyone there at the mill. He is going to email it to me so if I can figure out how to transfer it over I will post it. I so badly wanted to get a group picture but the day just sped by and it slipped my mind. Then on up to a little place called Meadows of Dan. We ate pizza in a little gazebo there. Thanks Dave! The little boys had tons of fun playing with rocks that were there. We then came home and Dave and Chuck set off some fireworks Dave had brought with him. The first boom sent 3 or 4 deer running out of the cornfield. I guess they thought it was hunting season starting early. After that it was off to “little town” to see the big fireworks display. We all had a great day. From about 10:30 in the morning till about 9:30 that night, my entire immediate family was together. God is good. Now, I wonder when we could do it again!!
I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
I am so happy for you! Family is a wonderful gift. 🙂
I thought about you guys yesterday and wondered if everyone got to come! Looks like SO much fun! Your grandbabies are adorable!
So happy for you.. There is nothing like having all of your family in one place at one time… And a lovely Summer’s day on top of it all.. Pure perfection..
Blessings, my dear friend..
Your grandkids are beautiful! I know you enjoyed having everyone together. Sounds like lots of fun. I agree, I think the hammock was a fun place to be. 🙂
What beautiful grandkids. I am sure it was exciting to have them all there. Your yard looked so cool and inviting. It sounds like a fun day you all had.
Have a wonderful evening with your family.
