Saturday Mumblings.

Up about 06:00AM with my bride, had our coffee, and looked at the blogs.

We have all three Grandkid’s for the whole weekend so I said I would take them someplace for a day out, they all wanted to go to.


                                   Planet Fun.

Once we got there they were off like a flash, through all the tubes and labyrinths that make up the place it is huge so they can run and climb and  get all sorts of exercise, Nicole met a girl she knew who was having a birthday party there, so the three were invited for cake.

Even though we had pizza night at home last night they were up to share a pie and had that, Nicole was a regular pizza face before it was all over.


                              The Pizza Face.


                             Nicole & Adam.


                             Chris & Nicole.

After pizza it was three more hours of running the course and playing with friends. Then it was time to drive  home and Grandpa had coupons for a free Blizzard at Wendy’s on the way home. Smiles were evident all around.

Grandpa will be smiling latter when he has a frost glass of High Life Light.

Grandma Donna had to leave for the restaurant as we were getting home but got to say goodbye to the kid’s, They don’t have school Monday so they will be together until then when Adam will go home to Warrenton and Chris will go to his Dad’s.

That’s about it for today, hope everyone is having as great a weekend as we are, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..


  1. Your patience is amazing. I don't think I could last that long in such a place. You deserve your frosty mug.

  2. I agree..Kudos to you and Donna..I love the grands, but when they go home, I enjoy the quiet..Maybe that makes me a bad grandma, but I hope not.

  3. I apologize for this, but I don't remember Chris coming to visit you before. Could you refresh my memory on how he fits in the mix? Sometimes I must miss a post. Don't know how that happens...

  4. Chris is my Son Andy's girlfriend Samanthas son, Nicoles older brother,because of some behavioral problems he lives with his Dad, Nicole lives with us, Adam is my Son Andy's son and has lived with us and his Mom.As far as Grandpa is concerned they all have equal claim as Grands and a space reserved in my heart.We don't see Chris as much as the other two but when he is here he is a pleasure to all of us, There is always a place for a kid here at the Ranch. Sam & Donna.

  5. What a busy day. Do hope Donna is feeling completely fine by now.

  6. Congrats to you and Donna for taking the kids to another 'planet'.

  7. Sounds like Grandpa was a hero this weekend!
