Hanging with the Granddaughters

Sorry I have been gone for a while but I am still recovering from my thumb surgery.  I have finally got my cast off and have been wearing a splint.  I go to therapy twice a week but I should be all done by the end of this month.  It is getting a lot better.

Anyway we have been spending a lot of time with the granddaughters.  They love to play in our backyard which has turned into Oma’s Little Tyke Playground.  They love their pool too.  They really like it when Oma makes bubbles in the pool.

PerryDell Farm

Heather called Friday night to see if we wanted to do something fun with the girls on Saturday.  We thought about several options but since Daddy had to go work on the apartments for a few hours we decided on something close.  We picked PerryDell Farm.  We had never been there before and the girls had never been close to moos.

This dairy is family owned and operated.  It was bought in 1923 by Howard Perry.  It was taken over by his two sons, George and Roger, who started bottling their milk.  It is now run by George’s 3 sons.  All the family pitches in on the farm and it supports 4 families.  For more information follow the link below.

Rocky Ridge County Park

We decided to go hike one of the many trails at Rocky Ridge County Park not far from where our kids live.  This was the girls’ first hike. Daddy brought their wagon for if they got tired.

Another Beautiful Day in the Backyard

Maria came over to help me with the girls today again.  They love having her over.  Kate says she is her best friend.

They played in the playhouse.

Bekka needed to sweep the floor in the playhouse even if it was grass.  The broom got stuck.  I really need to get this girl a little broom.  She is a real cleaner.

I guess they forgot what a door was because they used the windows to get in.  Thank you Maria for teaching them this.  lol

Yellow Phase Backyard Party

We had our first backyard party in our new house due to Covid-19. It was not a big party. Our daughter, her husband and their twin daughters and our friends we met in our neighborhood, which consist of Christina and her 8 year old daughter, Maria.

It was a beautiful day in York, Pennsylvania. We spent the day in the backyard watching the girls play.

Maria has been giving the girls toys she has outgrown like the little tyke car and trailer.

Seberg

The other night it was my turn to pick the movie. I picked Seberg from Amazon Prime. I usually do something while I am watching TV but once this started I had to put everything down and give the movie my full attention.

Jean Seberg a girl from Iowa who became a movie star. Her first movie was St Joan about Joan of Arc. She was burned at the stake and actually caught on fire. She spent half her life in Paris, France where her acting really took off. Then in 1968 she came back to the US to act in some movies, including “Paint Your Wagon”.

I am not going to go into this too much because I don’t want to ruin the movie for you but the this movie is about how Hoover’s FBI ruined her life. To learn more about her you can read these about her here.

Kristen Stewart played this part so well. I highly recommend this movie. If you watch it let me know what you thought.

Thanks for stopping by!

Yellow Stage

Our county of York, PA has gone into Yellow stage, which means we can spend some quality time with our twin granddaughters, Bekka and Kate. They came over to spend the day with Oma and Grandpa.

Bekka got right to work sweeping the deck.

Kate on the other hand was excited about seeing her horse again.

Our Backyard During Covid-19

Our little backyard haven is where we spend a lot of time. We might be out exploring now but have made the choice to stay safe at home. we have been having a good time there.

I work in the garden. I am so happy it is actually growing. I bought this cool seed sprouter from Amazon. I bought it to sprout alfalfa seeds but it worked great to sprout all the seeds for the garden.

Downtown York, PA

I just love showing off the downtown area of my new home, so before Jared left for home we had to take him there. There is so much history there.

I love all the old buildings. They remind me of the time I lived in England.
