Grandma's House

Grandma's House!

Last week we spent a few days at Grandma's house! ...the "Grandma with the Orange Trees" :)

Grandma has lived here forever.... see. This wall is where we measure ourselves every year. FYI I haven't grown since 1995. :) If you snuggle up real close to your computer screen you can see how tall Sierra was in 2009, 2010, and 2011. :) You can also see Michaela in 2009 and my little brother Kevin from 1989. The wall has been around a while.

I'd take Grandma's house over Vienna or Rome any day. My Grandpa built it and it's on a huge piece of land surrounded by corn and watermelon fields. She has orange trees, lemon trees, plum trees... :) It's a fun place to explore and she always has a fridge full of cold drinks that we love to help ourselves to. :)

My mom's kitchen wall has a height wall too...any house where you find a height wall and cold drinks in the fridge is the place for me. :)

So much to read and so little computer time!
I totally understand Grandma's house must be paradise for a child!!! And of course it brings up memories to you! I feel a bit sorry for not giving our children this experience of ONE home where they can come back and remember for the rest of their lives... (I KNOW we give them something else instead, but still.)
LOVED the bottle wrap in the text below!!!
Miss you and like to see what you do over there! (BTW it is totally different to what we did in US, ha ha.)
