Fun at the Park

This lovely little being is our Grand daughter Siobhan. We were privledged to spend a glorious afternoon with she and her Mom Rebecca in a great park in Portland. We ate fried chicken, potato salad, cherries, grapes and sponge cake. We checked out the duck pond, wading pool, jungle jims, teeter todder and watched Siobhan wiggle her next exiting tooth. She's a joy to behold, in all her 7 years of exhuberance.
It was terrific to get to see her. We all had a great time! Long live summer and the memories that we are gifted with!!

She lives in Ohio so we don't get to see her very often. Maybe next summer she can come and visit with her Ernst Grandparents here in Drain. That would definitely be something to look forward to!

Who knew that one day could bring such joy. I do hope that we will have a chance to see how she grows and watch her turn into the young woman that she will become.

I hope that your summer days are filled with love, family, friends and mates. I hope that these days will cause us all to stop and remember just what is really important in our lives. This day certainly did that for me.

Rebecca looked beautiful and it was good to see her smiling face and to enjoy a beautiful day in the park with both of them.

Ah, life is good!!!! ;)

What a wonderful day in the sun with people you love. The warmth of the day carries though in your writing :-)

Gorgeous. Aren't grandbabies the best, no matter how old they are? Siobhan is just adorable and how great for you to relive the fun times spent with her mama, now again with the babe.

Dang! I need another Shnicklefritz fix!!!
