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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Covid-19 and Easter

I know there are tons of grandparents that didn’t get to spend Easter with their grandchildren. I know some of you have done like my brother and sister in law who delivered things to their grandchildren as they watched from across the road as the children looked at all their goodies.

I took some things over to our granddaughters on Friday and left them on the porch.

This is how we got to do Easter this year with them via photos.

Girls are eating the chocolate sucker that Oma and Grandpa left for them.

We also got to use our Facebook Portal to visit with our grandchildren and children in Gig Harbor, Washington.

It was hard not spending Easter with our family but we all made the best of it. Covid-19 will not beat our family!

Let me know what you did for Easter.

Thanks for stopping by!

Things That Aggravate

There are things that aggravate us in this time of a universal crisis. There are some people and business that are sticking to the rules of social distancing and covering our face while others don’t.

First I will talk about business and people who abide by the new rules to try to stay safe from Covid-19.

We had to take our Harrison back to the vet for a recheck for his ear infection. I want to say that East York Veterinary does a great job of social distancing and the wearing of a mask. We arrived at the clinic and called to let them know we had arrived. Then when it was time to bring Harrison in I placed him in the between the two glass doors. After I was out the nurse came in and got him. Dr Gale called me during the visit to tell me what was going on. He still had the ear infection but it was getting better. After talking to the doctor we get a phone call from the office to pay by card. Harrison is then brought back and put between the two glass doors with his meds. There was no contact with any person. Great job done by our vet. If you live in York, PA and need a vet I highly recommend our vet.

Hanging with My Girls

Mom and Dad left for Hawaii on Wednesday and we started our babysitting of our granddaughter’s, Willow, Meadow and Brodie. Brodie is my son’s daughter and he will be home from work on Saturday.

We will see if they still like each other after spending 13 days alone. They have never been on their own this long before. Hopefully, they will both make it home safe and sound.

Valentine’s Parties

David and I made it safe and sound to Seattle on the 12th of February. My daughter, Sarah, picked us up and by the time we got to bed we were worn our from the long flight and all the time changes from one side of the country to the other.

It was so nice to see our granddaughters, Willow, Meadow and Brodie, when they got up for school the next morning. They are all in elementary school, 5th, 4th and 2nd. Of course they were having Valentine’s parties on the 14th.

We started off in Meadow’s 4th grade class. They had to make Valentine Boxes that had moving parts. Meadow made a giraffe with a moving tongue, neck and ears.

February Birthdays

David and I are leaving February 12th to go to Seattle to take care of 3 of our elementary age granddaughters, so we had a early birthday celebration in York on Friday. Dan’s birthday is on the 13th, Bekka and Kate’s is on the 16th and mine is on the 26th. My daughter, Sarah, in Gig Harbor had a birthday on the 1st. I have plenty of birthdays that is for sure.

Of course Oma had to make some birthday hats.
