Fall is here.....

We fed the ducks and had fun walking around the pond and looking for the first signs of fall, and we found it. Ethan found leaves and walnuts that had fallen to the ground. This area is not only pretty in the summer but in the fall as well.

And found just the right one...

Happy Grandparents Day!

Our Grandsons
Never knew how happy these two little people could make us feel. It's unbelievable the joy they have brought into our lives. We love their smiles and laughter, the breathing on the phone, the little hugs and kisses, and yes...even the screaming that sometimes takes place. They are what keeps us feeling young. It's funny to feel the unconditional love that they have for you, they look up to you and somehow know that grandma and grandpa love them. We long for the visits that we have with them and enjoy every minute. Eli and Ethan.....Grandma and grandpa loves you so much and can't imagine now our life without you. We love everything about you two and love our time spent with you!

A nice day to take a ride to the Apple Berry Farm

I thought this was cute when he looked at this and then pointed to the scarecrows feet, it had boots on. It was a nice day to go and pick apples and check out the new things they have displayed in their shop. John loves to bake and so he went and picked cortland apples to make some apple crisp and a few pies. They had told him that those would be the best baking apples to pick. It was very warm and the bee's were hanging out in the grass near the tree's, so we didn't let Ethan play to long near the trees this time.

He was able to pick these pumpkins up. They were just the right size for his little hands.

He does pretty well in letting me take random pictures of him.

A Grandchild
feels a space in your heart that you never knew was empty.
We went to Des Moines to see the new Bass Pro Shop that was built in Altoona. This place is huge. Ethan loved looking at the BIG fish that was in the aquarium that was built in the wall. It had a water fall flowing down into it.
Ethan was watching the ducks.

Labor Day Weekend

What a handsome boy!

John and I made this Mickey Mouse blanket for Ethan. We didn't have a place big enough to spread it out on, so we were on our knee's on the floor making it. By the time we were done, both of us were saying to each other "Oh, my knee's hurt bad" But we both said at the same...We would do it again! Our next blanket that we make will be for our other little grandson Eli. His is going to be Curious George. He loves monkeys and ducks.
