Still Alive And Kicking

It’s amazing how much energy our four granddaughters have.  It’s even more amazing how much energy we don’t have, trying to keep up with them.  But it’s worth every second.

We’ve been here in Missouri visiting them for over a month now and have seen them almost every day.  The older two, Taylor and Kierra usually sleep over with us on weekends.  We’ve made great use of the campground’s pool, especially during the week.  The girls are home schooled so they’ve been able to swim in an almost empty pool on weekdays after their lessons have been completed.  You’d swear they’ve become fish.  Although Taylor jokes that they are “Dahl-phins” (dolphins).

It’s not been all swimming, though.  I did help Ryan in his search for a new motorcycle.  Like me, he’s been riding since he was a youngster.  He picked up nice Triumph Tiger, a sweet ride.  Hopefully one of these days, he’ll be stationed close enough to us so we can ride our motorcycles together.  Some of my fondest memories are motorcycle trips and rides I took with my dad.

Miracle of miracles, our missing mail package finally showed up, over a month late.  I’m happy to get it, but not happy at all about the terrible service of Dakota Post.  I’ll never recommend them to anyone.

We’ll be here a few more days, we’re going to roll out on July 6 and head to our NJ granddaughters, with a brief stop in Ohio to visit one of Marti’s sisters.  Sad to leave the Missouri grands, but looking forward to spending time with the Jersey grands.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  1. I just can't believe how fast they're growing. Pretty soon they'll be ' Little Women'.

  5. Energy or not to keep up, you're having a great time ... in the end, that's what counts.

  10. I hadn't seen you post in awhile. Thought you'd set out on a journey around the country to track down your missing mail.

  12. It's always fun to make memories with the grands.
    Glad your mail issue has been resolved but it might also be time to change your domicile to Florida like you mentioned in the past.
    Heading up to NJ take your time as there has been lots of flash flooding. Give it time to dry up.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  14. Isn't it wonderful to be able to move our home just on a whim? You can visit whoever you want and nearly whenever you want. Of course, when the weather is nasty it's best not to travel in it at all. Enjoy those kids. They grow up pretty fast.

  15. Love Taylor's joke!! Great one! You are making priceless memories by moving from grands to grands! We all knew you were alive and running around like crazy after those girls.
