Dutch Wonderland

We had been told that we should take Beka and Kate to Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA.  It is only 30 miles from our house but we decided to stay at a Harvest Host on a farm.

Christina and Maria went with us too.  It was tons of fun!

Kauffman’s Barefoot Acres

The kids, I mean the grown kids, wanted to go to a mystery dinner date.  It was in Lancaster so we decided to use our Harvest Host and find a place to stay close.  Oma and Grandpa could watch the girls while Mom and Dad had a date night.

We headed to Bird in Hand,  PA where we stayed at Kauffman’s Barefoot Acres.

Camping For Easter

This was our maiden voyage with Merida, Winnebago Brave.  Well that is what we have named her.  She is just what we wanted.  Merida is just the right size for David, Harrison and me, 29 feet.

David drove me to rehab so we could head right over to the kids to head out when it was over.  I jumped out and got my rehab over with.  I went back to the motorhome and David informed me we were over heating.  We tried to find an auto parts store but nothing was close.  David opened the hood and we could see the hose that was cracked.  David and I reverted to our Alaska ways.  I told him I have duct tape in the RV and water.  David let it cool down before he could apply the duct tape.  We didn’t have a funnel to get the water into the radiator, so David went into the store to see if they had one.  He came out with a plastic cup.  I had a pitcher we could use to pour the water into from the 5 gallon jug.  We were then off to the kids house.  Dan had David go pick up the hose.  Then Dan replaced it.  Thank goodness that boy loves cranking a wrench.

We finally go off around 4:30pm on Thursday April 1.

A Morning at the Park

Heather called me one Sunday morning and asked if I would like to go to the park with the girls.  I told her that there was a nice park by us that had a nice playground.

As Heather, my daughter, pulled up to the park the girls started yelling we want to go to the red one.  We couldn’t get the girls out of the van fast enough.

February Birthdays

Yes I am really running behind on my blogs.  Here it is May and I am still blogging about February.

February is a big birthday month for our family.  My youngest daughter, Sarah, was born on the first of the month starting the birthdays.  Next is my son in law, Dan, on the 13th.  We can’t forget the girls, Kate and Beka, who celebrated their 3rd birthday with us.  Last of all on the 26th is my birthday.

Since the Mossberg’s were here visiting we had a party at Heather and Dan’s to celebrate all the February birthdays.

My little Kate is such a ham.

Christmas in York 2020

It just so happened that Santa rides his horse right down the street in front of our house.  The twins were here to see him.

My son, Cade, and his daughter, Brodie came to visit us for Christmas.  Brodie was hoping we had snow.  Well she was lucky and got to build a snowman with the help of Daddy and her new friend, Maria.

Crazy Life

It has been a long time since I posted.  I guess it all started when I decided to make everyone’s gift.  I should have started a lot earlier.  I have learned from this Christmas.

Anyway David and the girls got all the leaves up during the fall.

The girls even got Dad in the leaves.  Kate thought it was fun to sit in front of the leaf blower.

Thanksgiving 2020

Even with Covid-19  causing many to think this year is the worst ever we found things to be thankful for.  In fact, we found a lot; no one in our family have contracted Covid-19, we have a loving and caring family, we are very lucky to have 12 beautiful grandchildren, we have portal to stay connected to our family which seems to make them seem closer and many more.

David and I are lucky that we do have some family here.  That means that we went to Heather and Dan’s for dinner.  Heather and I split the cooking which made it easier on both of us.  I did cheap on desserts by buying the pumpkin pie from a local bakery and the Lemon bundt cake from Maria to support her school.  They were both delicious and I didn’t have to cook them which was nice.

When we got to their house Heather and the girls already had the table set.

Flinchbaugh’s Orchard & Farm Market

Once again we head to a farm that we have been wanting to check out.  A lot of people told us about all the things that go on here; like summer programs, corn maze, straw maze and more.  We were a little late for the season but we still had a great time.  The girls had a wonderful time playing.

I figured to start the day we should do a family photo of Heather, Dan and girls.  Check this out MeMe and PopPop!
