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!

Butcher’s Family Fun Farm

Heather and I had been wanting to go to a corn maze since we have moved here.  We finally got to one at the end of the season.

We found the coolest swings made out of tires which the girls really enjoyed.

Trip Home from Disney World

We loaded up and were off by 10:26am.  At 12:15 we had to stop so Dan could check on the trailer.  We ate lunch in the truck and were off again by 12:30.

We had to make a pit stop in Georgia for 10 minutes at 4:30.  By 5:10 we hit South Carolina and were at the Whipperwill Farms by 5:36.  Dan got us parked up while we took the girls to look at animals.

Our Last Day at Disney World

Our last day was spent at Epcot.  We arrived there and made it through the entrance one last time.

Of course, the first thing you see is the big circular structure.

I thought we needed a photo of the kids here.

The Covid-19 look with masks on.

Universal Studios

Heather had planned our trip so well but this was something she didn’t plan.  She didn’t know that her big brother, Jared, had connections to Universal Studios.  She had always wanted to go to see Harry Potter land.  Jared has an older gentleman that lives with him who is the father of his best friend, Justin.  Justin’s Mom, Karen, is a witch at the Squeaky Cauldron and she got us free tickets.  Justin is also one of my adopted sons, so I really wanted to meet Karen.

We were supposed to just hang out at the hotel by the pool for the day while Dan went to car museum he had been wanting to visit.  He dropped the rest of us off at Universal Studios where we met up with Karen.

Karen didn’t get to stay with us long because she had things to do and has a hard time wearing the mask.  To say the least she hasn’t been able to work because of this.  It was really nice to get to spend a little time with her.  Her family think so highly of my oldest son, Jared, which makes me very proud.

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.

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.

Beautiful Twin Granddaughters

David and I enjoy watching our little girls, Bekka and Kate, growing up. The new things they do everyday just amazes us. We have many wonderful days with them.

The girls love hanging out on our stairs with Mom.

They really enjoy being outside and learning all about what you can do with a stick.

I hope you get a little joy out of these photos because they sure put a lot of joy in our life.

Thanks for stopping by!
