Grandchildren Vacations!

In August, we were blessed to be given the opportunity to go on 2 separate vacations, with 2 sets of grandkids! The first part of August took us to South Dakota (a road trip) with my 2 granddaughters, Tessa (age 9, almost 10), and Kendra (age 7). She is my daughters children and full of life and joy!

Out adventure included seeing Mount Rushmore…


Swimming and meeting Taylor, a favorite friend from back home!


Going on a Chuckwagon dinner ride, they even got to sit up front with the driver on the way back! And what appetites! Kendra downed TWO hot dogs AND a steak!


We went horseback riding! Tessa on YouToo and Kendra on TJ, and we panned for gold!



We climbed Devils Tower in Wyoming


and slid down into Devils Bathtub after hiking there.

The last part of the month, we flew to San Antonio, TX, to be with Gregs daughters children, Carmen (age 11) and Nick (age 9). Krisi had to attend a class in Kansas, so we watched the kids.

While there, we were busy swimming…


and visiting this great water theme park called Schlitterbahn. Even grandpa and grandma had a blast there! Unfortunately, because it was a water theme park, we didn’t get any photos.

Carmen and I went to 3 yoga classes,


and I took her to an Essential Oil “Make and Take” class! The class was going to be on the news that night (KENS5 from San Antonio), and after the class, the man videoing the class presentation, asked me for an interview! So Carmen asked if she could have my autograph since I was now “famous”! LOL!!!

We went to a “make your own” pizza bar!


Seems like we were busy every day while there.

We were so blessed to be able to spend this unforgettable time with the grandkids. What a precious, unforgettable experience! We had so much fun with both sets of grandkids, we just wish we could have gotten all 4 of them together, they would have had so much fun.

Next blog…what has been going on since our return home. We close the sale of the house on Sept 1, so ALOT has been happening! So stay tuned!
