Sunday I decided to take the Grandkids to ride the Carousel at the Mall.
Great Grandma went with us and though it was a quick trip it gave us all something to do and the kids had fun.
It is a great place with a beautiful carousel and an ice rink both built on the same end with the food court!!
Sylas was so excited, Grandma got a little dizzy!
We then hit up the other rides for little ones.
This was his favorite for some reason.
No stop would be complete without an ice cream treat.
Sunday Fun Day~
Going in my gratitude jar for one of my first blessings of the year.
Everyone was healthy, the sun was shinning
and it’s fun to spend some time with them even if it’s just a short visit.
It was a great day~
I realize my posting frequency has dropped.
But hopefully, I’ll get back in a rhythm again…. soon.
Tonight…… we’re having a Surprise 30th Birthday Party for my son.
Makes me feel old.
But why is it that when you look in the mirror you look older than you feel?
This weekend, I hope to start my fairy garden.
They have been popping up all over and I want to give it a try.
I plan on grabbing a partner, my grand-daughter and scouring for some miniatures to put in our fairy scene and getting it started.
Not sure what we’re going to use yet, but I’m thinking an old wheelbarrow, like this one.
I had the cutest visitor, my grandson, come and join me for breakfast.
He wasn’t very demanding, just wanted something to eat, something to play with and some hugs until his Daddy picked him up. Of course, he was dressed in kid friendly fatigues.
I was happy to oblige him.
So was the dog. Some fruit, cereal, turkey sausage and milk. Breakfast of champions. I think she got most of the sausage!
A fun interruption for the day.
He ended up getting to stay until after his nap. I really hate to give him naps at my house, I’d rather keep on playing but he was getting tired. Then his Dad finished up what he needed to do and picked him up.
One of the best parts of being a grandparent is that you get to have all the fun!
(Sorry for the eye squints, I had them stand in the sun, not such a great idea.)
This post has nothing to do with home staging, merchandising, decorating or anything else that you may have stopped by to read because……..
It’s our 30th Anniversary today! Let me say that again, it’s our 30th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!
I can’t believe it…. we’ve gone through so much, grown so much, changed so much, laughed and cried so much.
I am so proud of US!
We get asked what our secret is all the time.
So what is our secret?
Be careful what you say to each other.
NEVER call each other names.
When your really mad and starting to list out all the things that hurt you, irritate you and frustrate you….STOP and start listing all of the good. Seriously, you have to get off that train and think about the things that they do for you, with you and because of you. If you don’t get off the “bad” track it will take you places you don’t want to go.
Do unto him/her as you would have them do unto you, it’s not always about you.
Pick your battles
Laugh some more
Stay in it for the long haul, the next person will get old, on your nerves, forget to take the trash out, forget feed the dog and like above; the list goes on. Just like the person your with now does. The grass is not always greener.
Sounds like we’ve just sailed right through these 30 years without any problems, think again. That is not the case.
We have just made the decision to stay together which is really what the secret is.
Here’s to US!
