A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A MEMAW

Beautiful Daughter and most of her family went to Dallas for a hugh motorcycle race....her littlest daughter HATES motorcycle races........too dirty....too loud....


Soooo.....guess who got to share her time all weekend..... blessed MEMAW.......

.......that's who!!

The park close to my house is always a MUST, if the weather permits......


Today was windy, to say the least but not TOO windy to PLAY......NEVER too windy to PLAY.....



And, not to windy to fish, either.....

These two young men were catching fish every time they threw their line into the water.

Needless to say, the next time we visit the park, we'll be bringing along our


fishin' rods !!

(I am pretty sure she was wondering WHY I didn't have our rods in the back of my car, just for such emergencies!!!)


Tiny granddaughter is a pretty good photographer, too!




She took this of the old trees around the lake....they haven't turned green yet...it fact, I am wondering, looking at these pictures, if they are dead!?!!

All the Red Bud trees are blooming and casting a purple hue to some of my pictures.

(Well, actually, now I am wondering if I had some sort of filter going on while we were snapping pics..??)



We took sand toys and toys draw other kids like a magnet....


It didn't take long until she had a little sand-digging friend......:)




She's 6 now and you know what happens to TEETH around 6 years old....

They start "dropping like flies" and I just had to get a close-up of this!!


We had a good time at the park...didn't get to stay near long enuf because MOM and DAD, BROTHER and SISTER got home, called us and they were so anxious to see their baby, we had to cut the park trip short and......GO HOME ~

What a precious little granddaughter! I remember when my girls were that age, oh how dear that age is! I am sure that she will rememeber the times that you have shared with her with so much love when she grows up:>)

Sounds like a fun day for you both! Love the picture of her smile. When my daughter started to lose her teeth all we could get from her was a kind of smirk - she never opened her mouth to smile!

I know what a special time that was for both of you. I spent two days last week with my little grand one. It was full of wonderful memories and hugs.

Thanks for pointing everyone over to the parade. I just don't know what I am going to do with all these feathers.

What a beautiful day at the park - I will soon have one of those - a grandbaby that is!! very exciting.
I don't have one rooster in my house - and didn't realize it until the parade started - oh, this just will not do!!
You have been such an inspiration to me - I check your blog everyday - but I'm not so good at commenting - but I will get better!!
thanks BJ

What a SWEET Memaw you are & what a fun day that must have been! The simplest things make the happiest memories & there's nothing more fun than the park!
Thanks for visiting my rooster & I would be thrilled to have Butterscotch enter the rooster parade if he's not too late!

What a beautiful day to spend with your grandaughter :) She's just precious! You are so beautiful Bj, inside and out.

By the way, did I tell you I gave you an award? I didn't know if I did or if you saw it there because I've posted twice since then.

BJ: I love spending time with my little grandbabies. Just tonight we ate out with our little twins Taylor and Jackson...we can't get enough of them.
I enjoyed participating in the rooster parade and it was so sweet of Beverly to say such nice things about my roosters.

Take care my friend!
