Goodbye Animal Kingdom

It is getting close to the end of our trip.  One last day at Animal Kingdom.  I said before this is our favorite park.  We were hoping to ride the Banshee again but with it being a weekend the line was too long.  I guess it will be on our list next time we go.

A Day in Animal Kingdom

This is the day that we went to Animal Kingdom which we were all looking forward to going to because of the opening of the ride, The Banshee.  If you watched the Avatar movie you will know that these are the animals that they flew on.  We had to do a baby swap for this ride.  David and I went first.  I have to say it was the best ride of all and we rode it twice.

I always say that everything happens for a reason.  Heather thought that she had ruined everything yesterday by her error. I believe she didn’t because the line wasn’t bad and as we found out it is too long on the weekends and this was a Monday.

Kate was being goofy with her hat.  I think she had her nimmie, sea anemone, under her hat.

The Magic is Back

Heather planned our first day at Epcot.  We took the monorail to the Grand Floridian Resort.  Before you could get on the monorail you had your temperature checked.  Due to covid-19 we got a car to ourselves.  We could roll the stroller straight on without taking the girls out.

Also, you have to make reservations for the parks because they are limiting the people they allow in.  You must wear a mask at all times except when you are seated and eating or drinking.  You can’t walk around with food.  Reservations have to be made for restaurants too.  This is one of the ways Disney is trying to keep everyone safe.

We had reservations for the Grand Floridian Cafe.  The breakfast was so good.  We really enjoyed it.  The magic has started.

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”

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.

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.

Backyard Granddaughters

Last weekend Heather wanted to see her brother, Jared, before he headed back home to Sterling, Alaska. We are still under lock down and social distancing. We know we can visit in our backyard with making sure to stay 6′ between us. It was hard to not touch the girls though.

Keeping Busy

Well I have been doing all kind of things around the house to keep busy. We have been having some nice weather, so David and I took advantage of it. David takes very good care of the lawn. We have found one big difference is that it needs to be mowed once a week. In Alaska it was every two weeks to a month depending on the rain. I have been working in the flower bed and trying to put a garden in. It is a lot of fun planting all the different flowers and there are so many more things I can grow in the garden here.
