Granny Daze 2012

This past week was so much fun, as the cousins got to know each other better.

One day we went to the beach.  I didn't get photos of the older two as they took off for deeper waters.

Another day we took the atv's along the Wolf River.

We just had to get rides on "Big Bertha"

We saved the best for last.  On Friday we all went to Green Bay, namely Bay Beach Amusement Park.  It is part of the city park system, and most rides are only 50 cents. Again, the older two took off for the Zippen Pippen  (a wooden roller coaster that the park system purchased from Memphis.  It has been said that it was Elvis's favorite roller coaster, and rode it often)  The younger grands were very photogenic on the Merry Go Round!!

Friday afternoon brought tearful good bye's as they got in their parent's cars and went home, hopefully remembering all the fun we had this past week.
Whew................ I'm wiped!!!

And that's the way it is............................

    "One ought, ever day at least, to hear
    a little song, read a good poem, see a
    fine picture, and, if it were possible,
    to speak a few reasonable words."

  6. Cousins are the first friends we have as children. It's great that they can stay with you all at the same time. I'm sure your grandchildren will be talking for a long time to come about the fun they had at grandma's house.

  7. What a fun week making memories! You will need to rest up now:)

  8. What a wonderful gift you gave your grands, quality cousin and grandparent time!

  9. Sounds like a wonderful visit -- those lucky grands!! Can't wait until mine are old enough for such adventures!
