Folks, this chick's wore down like a professional beggar's old shoe. Hubs was tellin' everyone we were goin' on vacation and yes, we did get away from the wild~eyed cattle and off the Ponderosa for a whole week. This is Venus vs. Mars baby and I'm callin' it a "work'cation". That's my final answer and I'm stickin' to it! We just returned from our long trip to Brownsville, Texas to visit my sweet Mama. Don't get me wrong, we go with full intentions of fixin' up and helpin' out as much as we can but I've had the energy of a smashed bug since we returned. Late summer the grandkiddos (I call the Fab~Four) got to make their own little journey to Camp Grandma.
Since the Ponderosa is truly over yonder and in the edge of nothin', we have to make our own entertainment. Ya know how you have good intentions of gettin' pictures of everything you've planned to do and then it hits ya the last day of Camp that you've been too stinkin' busy to pick up a camera, little lone take pictures??? Yeah~ me too... so all I've got to show ya'll is the lonely last day of Camp Grandma!
We went rock climbin'. This is Ethan the clone of his father, Geek Son. This kid is has always been old for his age and knows more than a Philadelphia lawyer. He's generally the first to pull out the leftover fireworks as he loves to have a 'blast' as much as his Rockin' Grandma does. He has a great attitude that spreads just like Kudzu!!!
We hunted for arrowheads and reptiles in the creek bed. Joel is our mad scientist and agile climber. He's always been able to climb up anything slicker than a harpooned hippo on a wet banana tree. If we ever lose Joel we've learned just to look up. He looks like my Dad and also portrays his prankster personality. When I'm missin' my Daddy all I have to do is look at this face and he flashes me the same familiar smile I grew up with.
We collected beautiful rocks. Some we're oddly shaped while others glittered in the beautiful summer sunlight. Little Miss Laura Ingalls...oops...I mean, Little Miss Sarah won the "Most Accidents Award" at Camp Grandma. I swear, this one could get hurt in a padded rubber room! She was injured so often, she'd look like she was gonna start cryin' like a pine knot in a sawmill then we'd look at each other and start laughin'. Cracked me up! Good thing she's tougher than a hungry one eared alley cat yet as sweet as southern tea!
We picked beautiful wildflowers. Prettier than a box full of speckled pups, (Mini~Me) Miss Honor shares my love (sick obsession) of flowers. Durin' Camp Grandma she dissected flower petals and covered my entire deck with a mass of brilliant color. (Sorry, no pics...I was busy feedin' the masses.) She's an artistic little soul with a heart as big as Texas and truly believes that she's a royal princess. Watchin' her is like peerin' through the lookin' glass at my little girl self.
We hiked many miles but someone with tired little feet thumbed a ride to hitchhike the rest of the way home with the help of big brother. Some people are just as cute as the dickens and know how to use it.
It was hotter than a mess of collard greens on the back of Granny Walden's old wood cook stove that week so there was lots of swimmin' where Honor lost her fear of the water. She sure gave the 'boys' a run for their money!!!
I had trouble keepin' the Toothless Wonder's water wings on her. She wanted to fearlessly swim across the pool without 'em. We struck up a bargain where she wore the wings the first half of the swim then she let Grandma Muzzie stick close by the last half. See that florescent lime green mat floatin' in the background? 'Doesn't float so good anymore. Heehehhee!!!
Look out Ester Williams, we performed synchronized Olympic water maneuvers with grace, style and attitude baby!!! We ate things like Frog Eyes, Shriveled Bat Wings with Possum Poop, Sugar Coated Moths and Slimy Blood Worms. We never, ever eat 'regular' food at Camp Grandmas. 'Wouldn't be prudent!
When we tired of hikin', climbin', swimin' and smashin' giant boulders we still had the energy to battle Galactic beings and conquer the universe. They do have the genes of that caped wonder 'Super Nezzy', ya know?
Most of all we had loads of smiles and heaps of fun. "Over the River and Through the Woods" was originally written as a Thanksgiving poem in 1844 by Lydia Maria Child from her childhood memories of visitin' her own grandparents home. It wasn't 'till 1951 the Andrews Sisters and Danny Kaye put it to music as the song we know today. I pray the memories made at Camp Grandma will make my grandkiddos sing happily forevermore, "Over the River and Through the Woods" to Grandmothers house we go!!!!
HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU!!!!
Ohhhhhhhhh look at these precious kids! How wonderful! So glad you have a wonderful time!ReplyDelete
This sounds like a GREAT time at Grandma's! The kind of vacation that the kids will always remember! What a bunch of cute kids!ReplyDelete
I have always loved that song and always thought of going to my grandparents home as I sang it. Your grands are each so very cute and I know they had a blast at your place. I wonder if any of them will be talking like grandma does now! ;DReplyDelete
Looks and sounds like you all had a blast! What great memories you have made with them! Money can't buy those kind of treasures....ReplyDelete
You'd for sure be the most fun Grandma ever!! Even the sound of it "Camp Grandma"s is fun...I may borrow it! They look like they had a super time and I bet they were just as tired as you by the time they left. You filled their lives with precious memories and that lasts a lifetime. Ask me, I know. I had the world's greatest Grandma too!!!ReplyDelete
Looks like the Fab 4 had a wonderful time...now I think I'll need a rest after all that action...take care Nezzy and put those tired feet up for a while!!!ReplyDelete
Whew...What a good grandma you are to have camp for them. Looks like everyone had a great time!ReplyDelete
Those are four beautiful blessings your have.ReplyDelete
I am sure they had a great time with you. The pictures are really nice.
Love the photos and the story of your wonderful grandchildren. They are so cute.ReplyDelete
rest up!! :)
nice pictures of the kids have a fun time and I bet you did too. But you know you would have won a award for the harpooned hippo on a wet banana tree picture.ReplyDelete
Those beautiful children...wow. Aren't they just little peaches?ReplyDelete
Looks like ya all had a blast.
PS My aunt live in Brownsville for a few years.
I'm longing for our grandsons to have a first camp out at Grandma camp. They're still young, so I'm going there next week - first time I'll have seen them since April - can't wait!ReplyDelete
I loved this post.
Oh what fun Nezzy! You are blessed with 4 beautiful and healthy grandkids!ReplyDelete
I bet you are a super fun grandma to have, looks like a trip they will always remember!
I love the little one without the front teeth, that is just the cutest thing!
Now rest up a bit girl!
2 girls and 2 boys - just perfect!ReplyDelete
They are all lookers and so nice that you have a variety of personalities. I would have LOVED Camp Grandma and I'm sure they did too. You're a RICH woman with all those sweet, adorable, Grands!
What a great adventure for the kids! Love your story and of course the quip! LOL. Get some rest and get ready for Monday! LOL. LoveReplyDelete
No wonder you are feeling a little tired out there with camp and a workcation on top of it all. You really do need some plain old relaxation time. Maybe things will slow down now for a bit for you but those holidays are coming at us soon...I loved seeing your grandchildren. What a great time you all had! One of my grandsons is missing his two front teeth too and they are so cute...but new ones are breaking through so by Christmas I'm sure he'll have those two front teeth back again.ReplyDelete
Lots of Love and hugs!
Our workcations often turn out just like yours. We need another vacation just to rest up!ReplyDelete
Glad you managed to have some fun too, though.
God bless. ♥
That song evokes such great memories of trips to see my grandmother. I bet your kids will be taken back in time whenever they hear it!ReplyDelete
I'm thinkin I want to come to Camp Grandma's. That was a wonderful post and some great pics to go with it. Rest assured the kiddos will remember it forever.ReplyDelete
You may not have gotten a lot of pictures but you sure got good ones. What a cute bunch of campers you had, and how lucky they are to get to go to your Camp Grandma! The kind of fun they had with you can't be beat and will be remembered always.ReplyDelete
Oh Nezzy! You were busy! They are absolutely beautiful younguns'ReplyDelete
Oh, we had the same week. I had my 4 oldest grandchildren. By Sunday night I was ready to sit down and cry I was so worn out.
I love the little one who needs some front teeth for Christmas!
They are so sweet. I bet they had such a good time on the Ponderosa.
You are a wonderful grandma!
These kiddos are adorable...Each one with their on sweet personality that just shines right through them...ReplyDelete
Don't they just make your heart beat strong and proud..
that's all there is to it!
Those younguns are as cute as a litter of pups! I know they had a great time at Camp Grandma. My youngest two are coming at Christmas and we plan to show them all the Arizona wildlife.ReplyDelete
Glad you liked the photos of the Three Amigos at lunch yesterday. We had a blast! Thanks for your sweet comment!!
Well, you made up for not taking pics until the last day with some really sweet shots!! I'm jealous of all those beautiful, handsome grandkids. Worth dragging your feet for a while after they leave, that's for sure. ;)ReplyDelete
Your grands are beautiful and very handsome! What fun for you to have them all to yourself!ReplyDelete
I hope you recoup after your workcation in Texas...stress can make you tired...and it is quite a drive there and back.
My brother and I used to sing that song all the way to our Grandmothers house for Thanksgiving.
Take good care of you! :)
Oh what a wonderful time at Camp Grandma - I am sure you made many memories! You sure do have some cute grandkiddos there! Just caught up - thank you for posting about Angel Dawn - glad to see and hear that things are going well!ReplyDelete
What a great time all seemed to be having at Camp Grandmas! I bet they never ran out of things to do and I'm sure the words "I'm bored" were never uttered from their lips! I bet those memories of their fun times with last many a long time!! Beautiful/handsome grandchildren, truly you are blessed!ReplyDelete
Your grandchildren are wonderful, but then aren't grandkids just the best reward for being parents! Sounds like you all had a wonderful time and made many memories.Love that song!Take care and God bless.ReplyDelete
Nezzy, I bet the g'kids are always having fun when you're around! Looks like a good time was had by all! Love that song, it was always one of my favorites. In my case, it was over the creek and thru the woods...LOL!ReplyDelete
Enjoy the rest of your week!
I love that last picture of the kids walking away, arm in arm. That's what it's all about.ReplyDelete
Oh, beautiful friend, I FEEL LIKE A SMASHED BUG TOO!!!!!!!! Work this year is FEROCIOUS and I need another summer vacation. But thank GOD for a job, and off I go to do that very thing....everyone is just gorgeous, AnitaReplyDelete
What a wonderful time, thanks for sharing it with me:) Great pics of everyone having SOOOO much fun! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!ReplyDelete
What cool character sketches you painted of your grands. I love brother giving tired sis a ride. Mine would have poked me with a stick to make me keep up.ReplyDelete
What fun! You are such a cool Grandma, your children as well as your grandchildren are very lucky indeed!ReplyDelete
Y'all did all my favorite things. I'm sure they have pockets full of good memories from this visit.ReplyDelete
Precious post, all round. :-)ReplyDelete
Sorry you are all tuckered out, but look at the memories made... Which you know. And now, 'tis time for some sittin' back and puttin' your toes up and just rockin' for a while. "Auntie" sezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...
"Nothing beats a haunted moonlit night on All Hallows Eve.... And on this fatal night, at this witching time, the starless sky laments black and unmoving. The somber hues of an ominous, dark forest are suddenly illuminated under the emerging face of the full moon."
Look at those sweet little faces. I am so far from my daughters and grandsons, I long for these moments. Hug yours for me.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing these happy pictures of the grands! What a huge blessing they are and sounds like such a great time together.ReplyDelete
Oh Nezzy! Those kiddies are gorgeous! And what a great Grandma you are; I'd have loved mine to feed me worms and frogs eyes, etc. You make me long for grandkiddies of my own ..... but I think I'll be content to wait until my own kiddies get married!ReplyDelete
Love ya, sweetie!
What a wonderful post and I'm sure memories were created that will stick with them forever.ReplyDelete
You know how I love to come and read you; you have a talent for making anything so interesting. Great photos of your advetures with the grandkids; enjoy my friend. First thing you know they are adults. I would have done everyting with yougyes except teh reptile thing...not me.ReplyDelete
Keep blogging and thank you for your kind visit to my little corner of the world.
Such a fun group. I love pictures like this. I bet you did have to rest.ReplyDelete
Looks like so much fun!! Can I come to Grandma's camp too? LOL I miss those days of spending all day outside and having a blast!ReplyDelete
We live across a mountain and everytime we ride with our grands to my house we always sing this song. We don't know the words but we make our own up. Now we can learn the right words. And your Grand are precious!!!! I enjoyed Camp Grandma!! See I told you that I would be back!!!ReplyDelete
Seems you all had a fun time. You've got terrific grandkids, Nezzy, but I guess you already know that.ReplyDelete
Thanks for popping over to my blog and your lovely comment.
Wonderful pictures of the grandkids! Thanks for visiting me today! Enjoyed my time here on your blog!ReplyDelete
I wish I was one of the grand kids, sounds like so much fun. Rest up Gal, the holidays are just around the corner. Loved the photos, such cuties.ReplyDelete
beautiful beautiful children, every blessed one of them.ReplyDelete
Nezzy, thanks so much for visiting my blog today! Always fun to meet new folks online. It looks like everyone had a wonderful time at Camp Grandma. Your grandkids are sure lucky, and you are one blessed woman!ReplyDelete

looks like you have a great bunch there...
You are my kinda gramma and I especially would love to come home to your house for dinner of frog eyes etc... It sounds like a delicatessen people would kill for lolReplyDelete
Camp Gramma??? Love it!!
Hi-I popped over from PW's blog. Looks like the kids had a great time at camp! You are helping them create lifelong memories, and that's fantastic! I'll bet they think you are one cool Grandma :)ReplyDelete
Your grandkiddos are so cute, Nezzy! I'm glad you all had a fun time. Sounds like you had lots of good food to eat too. Nothing beats a good mess of shriveled bat wings! :)ReplyDelete
Hi Nezzy, thank you so much for coming by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment:-) Such a wonderful time you had with the grandkids, I so enjoyed looking at their pictures and reading about all the fun you had. I say grandkids make you realize why we have our kids when we're much younger! lol They will certainly always remember "Grandma Camp" and all the delightful memories you've given them. xoxReplyDelete
Oh Nezzy......you have a beautiful family. "Camp" Grandma" sounded like a blast.ReplyDelete
Wonderful post, gal.ReplyDelete
Oh, they grow up all too soon.
Precious, Nezzy! The kid-lings are darling. I know you had to be tuckered out, but I know you had a blast also. Glad you were able to visit Mother, how is she doing?ReplyDelete
Well, FINALLY! I should have known to ask you about that corn row. It is so pretty standing all alone ... Harold thought maybe it was a government thing, but then he would. Thank you so much for sharing ... now we can tell anyone who ponders & look smarter than we've been. Chuckle!
Have a beautiful weekend ~
Hi Nezzy, you do have lovely grandchildren. It looks like Camp Grandma's is the place to be. I would enjoy it there too. Wonderful post and photos.ReplyDelete
OH how I love to come here to get a feel for some good literature, Ozark poetry at its finest, and a dose of LOVE from Nezzy girl!ReplyDelete
Oh dearest, thank you for feeling my "poem"....and teaching is an amazing thing. Just about this time of the year, in October, I am still not sure of WHO these kids are, and they are still not sure about who this dark-haired, wild and energetic 53 year old with high heel shoes is, teaching them in French how to make an electrical circuit. But the DANCE of hallelujah strikes up when I can make a certain connection, FINALLY, after weeks of doing my best to keep order and work with some individuals who are simply broken. But God gives us what we need to make the difference, day by day.
You are an inspiration to me sweet Nezzy, and I wish I had a grandma like you.....
BISOUS MON AMIE! Anita
What cute grandkids -- and looks like a whole lotta fun at Grandma's house. Great photos, Nezzy. :)ReplyDelete
They are gorgeous! Wow. I can see how they would wear you out, but my heavens girl, that is a passel of fine lookin' young 'uns.ReplyDelete
What happens to my speech when I visit you?
Such sweet, sweet kids they all are. So nice of him to give her a lift when she got all tuckered out. I hope that many, many treasures were unearthed!ReplyDelete
Camp Grama sounds just wonderful! I can't even imagine what it would be to live on a place like the Ponderosa and have such fun with my grandkids.ReplyDelete
I do hope, though, that one of our next generation carries my dad's grin.
His eyes would be nice, too.
This was such a great post.
Oh Nezzy, how precious are all your grankiddos. What fun they muust have to be with you. I really enjoyed reading their adventures with grandma, so entertaining! Such cute pictures too!...ChristineReplyDelete
You are blessed with such lovely grandchildren. Looks like you all had a great time at Camp Grandma. Sweet!ReplyDelete
I think you all had a great time. I bet they love Camp Grandma.ReplyDelete
Those are the most adorable pig ears I've seen in quite sometime. :) Can I come to Camp Grandma next summer? :DReplyDelete
Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow
So happy for you, as well as for them--So much love...ReplyDelete
What lovely pictures : and a style that is as fresh as a prairie daisy (not that I am sure that there is such a thing as a prairie daisy, but if there isn't there should be).ReplyDelete
Precious children. Each and every one of them. Camp Grandma sounds like the perfect place to visit. So much to do, so much to see, surrounded by love. They grow up so fast. Enjoy these special moments. Hugs to all.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog !! ....have a nice day....and so sweet your grandchilds all together in your post !!...nice to see and read......love form me...xxx..ReplyDelete
He he he! Very nice post! And the shots of your grandchildren are wonderful! And your grandchildren are lovely!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing;o)
Have a nice and happy weekend****
Oh, I'm totally in love with the grandkids! That last picture is adorable. Hopefully, you'll be able to rest - if those wild-eyed cattle let ya! - and get some much deserved energy back!ReplyDelete
Wow, they sure are cute! Camp Grandma is a great idea - I'll send mine over next year when you run it ;-)ReplyDelete
Thanks !! but i really like if you follow me too ??? hahahah!! have a nice weekend...love from me...xxx..ReplyDelete
Glad you got away. Hope you recover from your squashed bug status soon.ReplyDelete
Love those darlins--especially the missing tooth sweetie!
Love it Nezzy! I'm plumb worn to a frazzle when my grands come stay too. My kids have the audacity to remiind me that I'm not a spring chick anymore. What do they know! Our grands are precious little gifts from God, here on earth to make us happy and proud. Enjoy your poop time and hopefully you are full of energy again real soon.ReplyDelete

Oh, what cute and happy children, the little girl in the pink dress is a darling.;)ReplyDelete
Seems like it was a great trip, these images bring summer to my perception. Here we are in the midst of very late and foggy fall.;))
Thank you so much for always stopping by and having something nice to say.;))
What a sweet, wonderful post! There's nothing quite like having the grandbabies come for a visit! I love the saying, "I thought I was too old to fall in love. Then I had GRANDCHILDREN!"ReplyDelete
Following you now - we ranchers have to stick together . . .
What a fun thing for the grandkids to get to do!! I have such great memories of spending time at my grandma's house during the summer. Lucky kids:)ReplyDelete
YOU are the BEST GRANDMA EVER! I want to come to your camp!!! :)ReplyDelete
Just wanted to hop in and say thanks for visiting Bears at Home.ReplyDelete
Camp Grandma!!! AWWWW! This post was so great!!!ReplyDelete
You are a blessed woman.
have a pretty day!
Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my blog. We are getting ready for some early snow which is coming my way this weekend.Richard from Amish StoriesReplyDelete
Hi Nezzy! Looks like a pretty marvelous time at Grandma's! What cute grands too!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for popping to see me.
be a sweetie,
What charming grandchildren. And what a five-star grandma to have camp for them. Rest up. I know you need it.ReplyDelete
They are adorable, and sounds like a fun time! What wonderful memories you are making together. They'll never forget going to Grandmother's Camp. laurieReplyDelete
Grandma's Camp did I get that idea from you?ReplyDelete
Must have--- because this summer I had a grandma's camp too and we had a blast. Can't wait to have one again next summer. You had lovely weather for yours!
Awww...I just know that you made many, many sweet and precious memories for your adorable grandkids at Camp Grandma's, sweet lady! It sure looks like they had loads of fun! It made me miss all of my grands...big time! They are all in Texas and I'm clear up here in Colorado. I bet you passed right by a few of them on your way to Brownsville. All 10 of my sweet babies live in Corpus Christi!
Well dear lady, it was so much fun...and soooo sweet to get to look through all of your photos! Thank you for sharing them with us! Hope you're getting a bit of rest now! wink! Thank you so much for coming by for a visit, dear lady...I sooo enjoyed your sweet note that you left for me!
Warmest autumn wishes,
What wonderful photo's ... I think the Ponderosa sounds the perfect place for kids, and they are all just gorgeous. The first and last picture of them all together is just so lovely :o)ReplyDelete
What a cute vacation story. Beautiful children. You crack me up: "I've had the energy of a smashed bug since we returned." Lord knows I feel the same. Been terrible at keeping up with blogging, so I feel like a smashed bug too. Always great to have your visits too.
All the best,
Aren't grandkids the BEST!ReplyDelete
YOUR LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE PHAMILY SO MUCH AND I WOULD LOVE TO VISIT YOURS! YOU ARE ONE BLESSED LADY! PRAYERS FOR NICK AND TEAM MATES PLEASE AS THEY RUN AT ONE P M MST TODAY. I WISH THEM LOVE AND WINGS UNDER THEIR FEET. I KNOW THE GOOD LORD COULD SPARE A HANDFUL OR TWO OF HIS TOP SPEED ANGELS! HUGS ANNEReplyDelete
Oh what the good life you are living Nezzy. I love those pictures. There's love written allover. So nice that you got away for a week.ReplyDelete
I just wanted you to know that I don't have followers anymore and can't access my gmail account as it has been deleted by Google as they said that there was some illegal activity or that I violated Google terms of service??? I don't know what I did wrong but I couldn't access my account and post on my blog.
Since I couldn't access my blog I had to create another account and I was setting up my second blog and the next day it was gone, just like that. I tried to retrieve that one also with no success.
They said that I could get back my password in the email they sent me but there were no email.I tried new password with the same result. It was a viscous circle.
My old blog is still able to receive comments and I can post comments through Firefox server but I can't do blog post without the gmail account. I'm not computer savvy enough to know what I did wrong. It baffles my mind.
I hope that you have wonderful weekend back at the Ponderosa. Hugs. Julia from the lost paradise Of Petals and Wool.
How wonderful that your do that for your grandkids. All those memories made :) Great job, Super Grandma!ReplyDelete
I'm coming to Camp next time. Looks and sounds like a lot of fun.ReplyDelete
I read some of your one liners to Mr. Ken and he cracked up!
Have a wonderful Sunday.
Such sweethearts you have...hugs dear one...may joy follow you all week long. xoxoReplyDelete
What a wonderful post! I enjoyed meeting you and your Fab Four. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting during the week.ReplyDelete
Unless vacation means a spa and someone to pamper ME, then vacation just means same chores, different view.ReplyDelete
What beautiful pictures. I love hiking with my children!ReplyDelete
Written like a truly PROUD, fun loving, pooped Grandma. It is so fun to spend time with the grands, and nothing makes me happier then when they come visit me....and we have all our country adventures.ReplyDelete
One of my grandgirls was upset when she got scratched with barbwire....so we made it a game. I told he she just passed a "country girl test". so everytime something seemed difficult, or she hesitated about, we said it was part of the country girl test. She became very PROUD of herself after her visit, and my hubby bought her , her very own cowgirl belt with buckle.
....to grandmothers house we go......
for the best times ever
Oh Nezzy, it looks like they ALL had an awesome time at Camp Grandma...that little Laura Ingalls is a sweetie, but they are all as handsome as ever. Thanks so much for sharing with us...ReplyDelete
All that fun will wear you out.ReplyDelete
Nezzy, what precious children. Thank you for sharing. Blessings.ReplyDelete
Great looking grands! You sure have a lot more energy than I do. :-D Made me tired just reading about you keeping up with them. :-DReplyDelete
Have a great week.
Oh these beautiful children and a grandmothers joyful blessing! Thanks for your sweet visit -- I always smile to see that you've stopped by.ReplyDelete
Nezzy, you have beautiful grandchildren. I know they must have had so much fun! The children are lovely!ReplyDelete
You Rock!!!! It sounds like a trip to heaven to me, to come to Grandma's house.
Nezzy, those are 4 great looking kiddos! Love the toothless wonder...and what a fun time I be they had. Those are forever memories and I think it's great to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and spend it in the country. You're the best Grandma around!ReplyDelete
Looks like a good time was had by all! And such great looking kids! Happy week!...hugs...DebbieReplyDelete
I bet the Fab Four would always have the most wonderful memories of their stay at Camp Grandma!ReplyDelete
Reading this made me smile... big! =)
I found your blog through The Pioneer Woman. Love all your wonderful photos of your lovely family. Camp Grandma will be cherished by your kids forever. For my kids their place of wonder is Grandad's Farm, across the great pond in Ireland. We love to go exploring there whenever we can make a summer trip. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Your posts always make me smile!! And you have to know that the Fab Four will have so many treasured memories of being at Camp Grandma's for years to come! All the pics are so sweet...so obvious they enjoy their visits with you.ReplyDelete
It kind of makes me sad that my kids don't have grandparents who appreciate them as much as you seem to appreciate yours.
You can see from all those smiles what a great time they had. They'll remember that forever!!ReplyDelete
Give me a call next time Camp Granny starts up will you? I want to go!! You may be worn out Nezzy but I can feel the warmth in your heart!ReplyDelete
Love Di ♥
They're gorgeous Nezzy. And lucky for having a grandma like you!ReplyDelete
I am having a total cow looking at all these comments. It takes a year for me to get that many..maybe even more! :) I know what it is, (besides loving YOU to pieces..) everyone wants to be there...adventuring...rock climbing. To have a Grandma like you and a "Ponderosa" to visit...a child's dream come true!ReplyDelete
You are the dearest of the dear, Nezzy!
Hugs and love,
Sorry honey that trip totally wore you out but I know it is good to be there to help your Mom.ReplyDelete
Your grandbabies are all adorable. Love how you described each I felt like I was there meeting them.
I know when they leave you they are already thinking of their next visit.
Get some rest and I love you
What a wonderful time with Grandma! Your grandchildren are just precious. I know what you mean about the camera though. Sometimes you're just so busy enjoying yourself you can forget to take pictures! Oh well, the grandchildren will remember it well anyway.ReplyDelete
Thank you for stopping by and your sweet words of encouragement.ReplyDelete
As soon as I read the word "Ozark" in your comment I had to come and check out your blog.ReplyDelete
Surprise! Surprise! I know some of your grandchildren...actually I know their mom better from the home school skating we go to.
Nice to "meet" you and thank you for your lovely comment!
Dana~a fellow Ozarkian
Wow - - you have some energy! By the time my grandkids (not born yet) get that age, I will be pleased if I am not in a wheelchair! What a wonderful week and if they are like me, their memories of Grandma's house will be the highlights of their growing up years..ReplyDelete
Possum Poop. That will now be on the menu at our next lunch -- when the kids wanna know "what ya cookin gramma?"ReplyDelete
