Family Time

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses. ~Joyce Brothers
Last weekend we went down to Greene County to visit our families. Jeremy went to Redbird State Riding Park to off-road at a Hi-Lift sponsored event. ( for those of you who don't know, Hi-Lift jacks are the only thing manufactured in our hometown of Bloomfield.) While Jeremy was wheeling with his dad and family, the kids and I hung out with my parents and niece & nephew. The kids we were thrilled to be able to have a slumber party with their cousins at Nana & Pop's house.
It was a weekend filled with snacks, frog catching, barbie playing, more frog catching, swimming and even more frog catching! ( those little frogs were everywhere and the kids just LOVED catching them and putting them in their new home-- a storage tote with rocks and a little grass. The Newberry Festival was going on while we were there too. So took all 4 grandkids down to the festival to play at the park, get balloon animals from Wacky the Clown and watch a parade. Little festivals have the best parades, they aren't too long and you leave with a bag loaded full of candy!
The weekend was one of many memories for the kids and grown- ups alike. :o)
