Can you imagine what it will be like with 5 granddaughters? :)
We babysat Bell and Em for Taf and Cory over the weekend. Crystal, Grant and Avery joined us Friday night for dinner and so we could watch the Tennessee-Michigan basketball game together. Saturday was rainy, cold and very windy. Emmaline (the youngest) wanted to go outside and kept pointing to the back door and then, of course, Isabella, did too. I tried to explain that it was too cold. Isabella said "but we can put on our jackets." And then I said it was wet and rainy too. Isabella said "but we can put on our hats". I kept trying to explain why we couldn't go outside and she kept giving me reasons whey we could. She almost had me convinced. :)
Sunday morning we got Bell and Em ready and, surprisingly enough, got to church a few minutes early. Chuck and I asked each other on the way to church how did we ever get our daughters ready for anything when they were little. :) Everyone was pretty tired Sunday afternoon because we all took some pretty good naps. :) Taf and Cory arrived back home that afternoon after a fun weekend.
We woke up to a cool but beautiful day Monday morning. Time to get some steps in and look for golf balls along the way. :)
The redbud trees were blooming...
...and the lake was calm.
Since it was such a beautiful day, Tafanie, Bell and Emmaline came to see us at Stone Mountain on Monday. Emmaline had a snack of some apples.
Bell practiced her photography skills by taking a picture of her apples,
and the latest addition to our motorhome, another 1/2 bath. We always wanted an extra bathroom. :)
Pa and Bell played cards for a few minutes...
...but then it was time to go to the playground. MiMa rode with Bell down the slide a few times...
and then a couple times with Bell and Emmaline.
Then, MiMa had to rest. :)
Crystal and Avery met us back at Tafanie's Monday night for some homemade lasagna. We got to play with all 3 girls after supper. Avery and I took this "selfie." :)
Since it was such a nice evening when we got back to the camper, Chuck and I enjoyed a campfire for a couple of hours Monday night.
Very peaceful! :)
Isabella spent the day with us Tuesday at Stone Mountain. She told us she wanted to "go to the playground, throw pine cones in the water, and watch the geese." We started our day with Bell by getting some of our steps in...
going to the playground, and then going to the lake to throw pine cones (and then rocks) in the water.
Bell always kicks up her left foot when she throws rocks or pine cones in the water.
After eating a very good lunch, we all took naps. After naps, we walked back down to the lake to throw a few more pine cones in the lake and to see the geese.
Chuck, Bell and I met Tafanie and Emmaline and Crystal and Avery at Panera Bread for supper. Isabella practiced her photography skills in the car on the way to Panera. :)
After dinner, we went back over to Crystal and Grant's for a few minutes before heading back to Stone Mountain for the evening. We had a wonderful few days of blowing bubbles, swinging on swings, sliding on slides, throwing pine cones in the water, and doing all the fun things that grandparents get to do with their granddaughters. :)
