Grandma's House

Okay so these are a little late coming but here they are anyway. I took a few days off about two weeks ago. Hubby, the kids and I went to visit my grandma up north. We only had a few hours but it was still great. She was so happy to see us. All of us grandkids (all 29 of us) just love her to death but we all get busy with our own lives that she rarely has visitors. It made me realize we should appreciate the time more the lord gives us with her here.

We arrived right before lunch time. Good timing for us because we received the royal treatment! She made us homemade mashed potatoes (no boxed stuff for granny!), homemade chicken and noodles and fresh homemade apple pie. Mmmm, Yummy!

We went to a park to let the kids play right around the corner from Grandma's house. It was a really nice park for being a itty bitty town. Then we let the kids play in the playroom while we talked about things of spiritual nature with Grandma. Then as we had to leave we were sent home with about 10 bags of pears! Mom canned some and since I don't have time to can I've just been sharing with friends, co-workers and anyone else who'll take the stinkin things!

Here are some photos of our visit:
