Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat

Every time we drive through Harrisburg we go over the Susquehanna River.  I always saw the paddle wheeler.  I checked into it and found that they have special events and a 45 minute river ride.  We thought this sounded like fun, so we got tickets for our family.

David and I rode with Christina and Maria.  Heather and Dan met us there.  I took a few photos while we waited for them to get there.

The other kids were running a little late because Kate had to go to the doctor.  She told Mommy that her ear hurt.  She was not running a temperature or acting like she felt bad but Heather thought she better get her checked out.  It was a good thing too because she did have a ear infection.

David went to meet them when they got there, so they could find us.

Due to Covid-19 we were required to wear a masks and there were limited people allowed.  I had made our reservations so we were good to go.

They might not look like it but the girls were really excited about riding on the boat. They couldn’t wait to get on the boat.  Of course, Bekka, didn’t think there was enough woggie, water, because she asked for more the whole ride.

We decided to check out the inside.

Then back outside for some photo ops.

Now it was time to head back to the dock.

After our ride I went home with Heather to help her organize her dressing room.  David rode home with Christina and came over to get me later.  We stayed to have dinner at their house.

While we were at the kids house Bekka started pushing her sister, Kate, in their car.  All of a sudden she stopped and ran into the house.  She came out with their twin babies, then handed them to her sister.  Bekka then continued to push her sister.

On Sunday Heather came over for the day, so I could help with Bekka while she took care of Kate.  Kate started running a fever and was really in pain from her ear.  She had been up all night and Mommy didn’t get any sleep.  Heather always tries to let Dan have Sundays off from taking care of girls.  David and I played with Bekka.  Mommy and Kate got a little nap which helped them.  Before they left though Bekka came running over to our couch and jumped up.

This is how she ended up.  Mommy asked her if she was comfortable and she said yes.  She stayed like this for a while before she decided to get down.

Stay safe out there and thanks for stopping by!

Creekside Farm

Well I have been so busy lately I haven’t taken the time to sit down and write, so I am a little time behind.

We took the girls to a tractor show at Creekside Farm.  It was time to play in the sunflower fields.  The farm is really cool and I am sure we will be back different times of the year for the different seasons.  I see that pumpkin season starts on September 4th.

This is their web page if you want more information:

Staying Busy During Covid-19

David and I are still staying home most of the time.  We figure there is no use taking chances with Covid-19, so we have been just staying busy at home.  Besides taking care of our granddaughters a couple days a week we have been working on crafts, trying new recipes and working in the yard.  We don’t go out to eat but we do go over to the neighbors on Fridays and sit in their carport.  We order out and our men go pick it up.  That is the one night a week I don’t cook.  Talking about cooking here are a couple photos of something I cooked.

These are Keto friendly recipes.  The first one is an almond flour dinner roll.  They were good.  I also made fried chicken in my Air Fryer.  The coating is ground pork rinds.  It turned out great. Continue reading “Staying Busy During Covid-19”

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.

First thing they saw really interesting was some Daddy Long Legs on a post.  They love itsy bitsy.

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.

Princess of York

Once upon a time there was a little girl, Maria, who was the Princess of York. She lived a quiet life on a quiet street with her Mother the Queen. Then one day as she looked out the window she saw a big, white animal walking down the sidewalk in front of her castle.

Maria tells the Queen, Christina, that there is a polar bear walking down the sidewalk. Her mother informs her that there are no polar bears in York. We live to far south for them to be here.

FestivICE

We have been checking out all the different happenings in downtown York. We went to checkout FestivICE.

The day started getting the girls dressed in their winter gear. I remember doing this with all my kids. By the time you got number 5 dressed number one was coming back in.

There were quite a few ice sculptures. They were so small compared to the ones in Alaska.

The girls enjoyed looking at the ice sculptures and even got to sit in an Ice throne.

Kate and Bekka loved the huge bubble.

The girls got to meet the local mascots. A Raven and the Abominable Snowman.

The best thing was the 40ft ice slide.

Bekka really enjoyed it so Mommy took her back for another ride while Daddy and Grandpa watched Kate. Mommy had to take her because Daddy barely fit on the slide.

I just had to get a photo of the radio DJ’s coat.

These were painted on a wall. They tell some of the odd history of York. Be sure to read what they say.

It was a small festival but we enjoyed it. I think it had a lot to do with watching the reactions of our granddaughters, Kate and Bekka.

Thanks for stopping by.

New Life

I know I have been slow about writing but things are moving along very well here. David and I have gotten our Pennsylvania drivers license. We are waiting on a new title from Alaska to register our car because ours must be in Edmonton, Canada. We both got a local number and registered to vote. I guess we are becoming real Pennsylvanians. I guess that is what you call someone from PA.

Thanksgiving wasn’t our norm. We ordered our dinner from Cracker Barrel. It was ok but not what we were used too.
