It has been awhile, March 4, 2012

It has been almost a month since I last posted and quite a lot has happened. We traveled from Bullhead City AZ to Sacramento CA area. The drive went well even with seven lanes of traffic Bob had to navigate in the last few miles, he was glad it wasn’t too busy for being around 4 pm.


Our first week here we had fun. Bob did his best to roast a fellow co-worker at her retirement party.


Does the five second rule work? Well our granddaughter Abby could tell you, here is her science project.


Was fun watching our grandson Zach swing on a vine near his school. Even grandpa tried it and the vine held strong!


All the grandkids we out of school (Presidents’ Day) so we all ventured to Coloma CA (Gold Discovery site) for a grandma and grandpa field trip day.


Inside a bark house.


But the most fun was climbing on rocks!


Zach celebrated his 13th birthday, he is now a teenager. He even help make and decorate his huge chocolate chip cookie.


We were able to see our granddaughter Lindsey playing fast pitch softball.


Also her sister Abby batting.IMG_3841


Last Saturday morning we ventured out to the local farmers market we used to go to all the time. Found some real bargains, even some small Brussels sprouts which Bob loves.

IMG_3832This past week we have been sorting and sorting at our stick and brick house. It has gone pretty well, but we are bushed when mid afternoon comes. This room full of boxes from his Mom’s house in Ohio will be facing us tomorrow morning. Last week we sorted five rooms plus did a little outside clean up.

The photo below shows a sorted room with items to sell.


Below is Bob with our son Rich and grandson Zach. Notice the rock in the back of Rich’s truck, it is a special rock he salvaged from our back yard before we sell it. He carried that rock for miles on top of his backpack to bring to his mamma.


In this special moment in time…have faith

Time with family is the best time spent of all. Very nice.

Fun, fun times with the grands. And lots of work done on the house. Two really great things.

Nice to be "home", good luck with the clean out. Just the thought of having to do that gives me heartburn!

Hope it goes quickly for you so you can get back on the road soon. We can't wait to meet up with you again and check out Bob's new hair. Did the brussel sprots cause the growth?? ;c)

Been thinking about how busy you and Bob must be! I'll bet you are discovering lots of forgotten items in all the boxes. Hard work, for sure, but getting to see those precious grandchildren makes it all good!
