6pm – It’s a long drive to Zanesville. But we made it in record time! Can’t WAIT to see Grandma & Grandpa!
7pm – Everyone starts to show up! Aunt Mandy and our cousins. Aunt Amber and Uncle Chris. Uncle Frank, Aunt Jacque and AJ. Deer in the woods behind the house. My Daddy’s godparents show up unexpectedly. That’s a nice surprise! He hasn’t seen them in years!
9:50pm – Daddy went to see “Indiana Jones”. Aunt Ruth Ann and her fiancee, Mike, were there also! The movie sucked. See Daddy’s review here.
Midnight – Daddy went to Uncle Frank’s house. He’s put a lot of work into his backyard and it looks great! Now…just have to find a place to put that swingset…
8am – Up and rolling with eggs and ham for breakfast.
10am – Grandpa and Daddy head out for 9 holes of golf. Daddy’s high school basketball coach was there to hit at the driving range! Daddy hasn’t played golf in a while. The skies were blue and the course was in great shape! Daddy didn’t play great, but he blamed the clubs. Obviously they are broken. Uncle Frank needs to buy some new clubs ’cause those don’t work.
2pm – Daddy took Grandma & Ava to the mall. Looking for some shorts, but Ava wanted something at the toy store. She got a water-coloring book and some bubbles. Christopher hung out with cousin Alerick.
4pm – Back home, Daddy and Grandpa hopped in the car and went for a ride. It’s such a beautiful day! They drove past Grandpa’s old house, and then into McConnelsville where Grandpa and Grandma used to own a restaurant. The old Blue Bell is still open! On the way back, they stopped out front of a business that has the old family car still out front. Lots of weeds and stuff…but it’s definately the old family station wagon!
5:30pm – Time for dinner! Pork chops, spinach and mashed potatoes! It’s the dinner of choice for us! And it’s excellent as usual! Thanks Grandma!
7pm – Bath time for us! Gotta keep us clean or Mom gets mad…
9pm – Everyone in bed, lights out! Cousin “Bear” (Alerick’s nickname) is staying the night!
9:30pm – Daddy hung out at Frank’s house. They ate meatball sandwiches by Jacque and chatted about music and movies and blogging.
All Morning Long – Did nothing but watch cartoons, went to the park and played kickball and climbed on the monkey bars!
Noon – Cousin Dia and Kaia came over. Aunt Kathy is into yoga…so Aunt Mandy showed her how it’s done. All the girls were interested…but the guys just wanted to play Dance, Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero! Okay…everybody wanted to play…and cousin Kacey kicked ALL of our butts!
2:30 – Went out and played in the yard. Blowin’ bubbles and wrasslin’!
5:00pm – Grandma & Aunt Jacque do the bulk of the cooking tonight. We love them soooooo much! And it was tasty!
8:30pm – We’re all in bed. Looking forward to tomorrow when we get to see Mommy again! But it’s been a blast here at Grandma’s house! Can’t wait to come back and visit again! Love you Grandma! 🙂
