campingI realize that all children love theme parks because of the characters, the rides, the hype.  And that’s all great and fine. Trust me, I’m not against theme parks, in fact, I enjoy them on a limited scale!

But let me ask you, what are some of your most memorable vacations as a child?  If you were fortunate enough to have parents that took you camping, I would bet that those memories are at the top of the list.  Of course, times were different when I was a child, we didn’t take elaborate vacations and I don’t remember any of my friends that did either.

booksAre there certain books that your children or grandchildren want you to read to them over and over?

There is a set of books at Grandpa and I’s house that are just that!

They are nursery rhymes.  12 little board books that come in a box that looks somewhat like a book itself.  There is something about these small books that toddlers just love.  I purchased our set of books when our 7 year old granddaughter was 2 years old. She loved them, then the next one loved them, and the next one loved them and the next one! Read more….

homemade pretzelsMy grandchildren really like pretzels.  Do yours?  They like the straight ones, the curly ones and the large pretzel sticks, which we sometimes eat for lunch with peanut butter to dip them in!  So today when they were over we decided to try our hand at making homemade pretzels from scratch.

flowers

Yesterday was beautiful, sunny and warm; today we woke up to see snow flurries swirling past our window and covering the ground.  And a cold wind; can’t forget that.  Oh well, it is March and that means “in like a lion and out like a lamb”!

When I was planning for my grandchildren to spend the day with me, my mind went to activities centered around flowers because I had seen several blooming daffodils and flowering trees in my travels.  I decided to include planting flower seeds (to be transplanted to Grandma’s flower garden later), making a flower craft and reading a book or two about flowers to round out our flower adventures.
