After our visit to the farm we were home from Sunday-Thursday, and then we packed up our three little ones once again and headed for Swift Current, SK, home of Josh's grandparents, who were celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary the May long weekend.
I had a couple new tricks up my sleeve for the 7.5 hr car ride, like an old calculator for them to play with. Joy "texted" on it for quite a while!
We all had to laugh - in their 17 hrs of driving (coming from Denver) they stopped three times for a total of 54 minutes, (thank you, Daniel, for the stats) whereas in our 7.5 hr drive we had stopped four times for about 40 minutes each time! Ah, the joys of traveling with a nursing baby and driving through Llyodminster at noon hour on Friday of the long weekend! Eeks! :o)
On Saturday morning most of us went to the church, enjoyed brunch together, and set up for the anniversary party the next day. It was so good to be with family!
Orange + orange, love it!
She still puts in a large garden, even in her golden years.
Someone was happy about something.
Guess which treat Joy wanted - chocolate! Ah, "you can dress them up but you can't take them out" as the saying goes. Thankful for good spray and wash to get the stains out of pretty dresses!
And they thought that was great. :o)
