Traveling to San Diego

Last week my kids were on spring break and I decided that this year we were going to do something fun!!  So at the last minute I packed up my kids and headed to San Diego!

Old Fashioned Game Roundup

I love games of all kinds. It’s the competition that’s so fun. I am a fan of many electronic games out there, board games, and have fond memories of the games I played as a child. I do worry about kids now days not getting the exercise they need because of TV and electronic games, so I gathered some of the old games that have been around forever that will give your family some alternatives and some great memories. Plus, I am always on the lookout for things to do with my grandkids and these posts helped me remember some I had totally forgotten about.

Summer Reflections

I can’t believe it’s October already.  I know everyone says “Where does the time go?”, but really….WHERE DOES THE TIME GO?

Warning:  This is going to be a long, photo heavy post. 🙂

My summer was lovely for the most part.  Full of family and great times.  It started out with a huge stumbling stone, though, or should I say a boulder, or maybe mountain, to cross over.

Ashley, her kids, and I had been planning a two week trip to Oklahoma to see family and then to Branson, MO for some fun.  We had just bought a new to us car and drove it to Kansas to spend a few days with Ashley and her family then head to Oklahoma from there.

History

Hello readers! Lately I have been working a ton, but now that it has slowed down a bit I have a chance to blog some more. I have been AWOL lately. I also have been really hooked on Ancesty.com and I have been trying to find out more about my paternal grandmothers history and man these ancestors of mine are sneaky!! But I did find this picture of my great great great grandfather Asa Moroni Beecher!
