YORK, PA

I do really enjoy our new home in York.  There is so much history here.  Going downtown is always fun to look at the old buildings and see what is new.

I bet most people don’t realize that York was the first capitol of the United States.  If you would like to learn more about York check this out.

Anyway, back to my story.  We went to look around with our son, Cade, and granddaughter, Brodie.  We checked out some to the old buildings.

LaCrosse’

Our son, Cade, and his daughter, Brodie, moved to York when we left Washington to come home.  After Cade got her into school, Holy Trinity, he told her to pick out a sport to play.  We suggested all of the regular sports and she wasn’t interested.

Then one day she comes home from school she shoots upstairs where I am where she tells me about a new game they played at school.  It had something to do with catching a ball with a net.  I ask what it is it called; she says she doesn’t know.  Then she tells me she has a paperwork on it.

The sport was called LaCrosse which none of us from Alaska never had any experience with it.  Now though we are all getting into it.  Cade has become the Most Valuable Dad.  He brings snacks and drinks to all practices.

Brodie loves playing goalie.  She can really toss the ball.  Her team knows she tosses it really far and are ready for her toss.

GO IRISH!

We are now a LaCrosse family.  Brodie told us we will be going to a lot of games for a long time.

Heading Home

I am finally back after a long break.  I will fill you in on what has been happening here but I think we need to get back from our trip across country first.

After spending Christmas with our Washington family and getting snowed in once again we finally are heading home.  Our son, Cade, and his daughter, Brodie, are moving to York to be closer to us.

We left trying to outrun the snow.

Trip Across the Country

There has been a lot happening here since I last wrote.  I went to Friday morning mass to see Maria serve.  I bowed in front of the alter and went to turn.  As I turned my foot came out of my sandal, then down I went.  It all happened like I was in slow motion.  I was trying to grab the pew with one hand.  The other hand went behind me to try to catch myself.  I fell on the ball of my hand.  I went home and David left for work.  I took the neighbor shopping but when we got home my hand was killing me. David got me to the doctor.  I broke my wrist,  to be exact it is a scaphoid fracture in the wrist.  I had to wear a splint for a week and a half.  Now I am in a cast that keeps my thumb from moving.  It will come off on January 12 when we get home.

I had to finish making the Christmas presents which was kind of hard with one hand.  They are all done and ready to go.

We went to pick up our motorhome, Merida, and it wouldn’t start.  David ended up replacing all 3 batteries.  What a difference it made.

I got her loaded up yesterday with some help from Christina and Maria.  We just have a few things to load today before we leave on our trip to spend Christmas with Sarah and Steve’s family.  Also, Cade and his daughter, Brodie, will be moving back to York with us.

We are excited about our long trip.  We will be making some side trips to checkout different things.  The first main stop will be Mount Rushmore.  It will take us a couple days to get there.  We don’t want to drive to long, 6 to 8 hours a day is what we are trying to do.  Of course, if we see something to go check out it might be shorter or longer.

We will be leaving this morning.

I will try to post when I can.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mister Ed’s Elephant Museum & Candy Emporium

Our friend, Christina, had told us about Mister Ed’s Elephant Museum & Candy Emporium located on the other side of Gettysburg from our home in York, PA.

When our daughter, Sarah, and her family visited in February we stopped by when we were out checking out Gettysburg.  We didn’t get to check out everything outside because of the snow but the store was worth the visit.

Christina tells me she read that they had opened up a shed that is full of teapots and she would like to go check it out.  She then proceeds to tell me that she has never taken her daughter, Maria.  I told we needed to go then.

Off we go on a beautiful summer day.

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.

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.

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.

Yellow Stage

Our county of York, PA has gone into Yellow stage, which means we can spend some quality time with our twin granddaughters, Bekka and Kate. They came over to spend the day with Oma and Grandpa.

Bekka got right to work sweeping the deck.

Kate on the other hand was excited about seeing her horse again.
