A Weekend Full Of Parties

This past weekend was filled with 2 birthday parties for 2 of my grands, our granddaughter's birthday is the 8th and our grandson's is the 9th so there have been times when I could only attend one party. This year I made it to both!!!
Mackenzie turned 6 and her party was friday, at Bay Beach, an amusement park with lots of rides (mainly for younger children) for .25 you can't go wrong with that!
The big slide is a hit with everyone. The young parents took the little ones down.

The little girl on the right is not our grandchild but the others I will claim -from 14 to almost 4.
Everyone gets along good and everyone had a great time. The weather was perfect, not too hot and not too cold.
 Big brother talked his way into getting let in line so he could ride with his little sister. 
 Jessica, Amy, and I took the 3 youngest ones to the wading pool. I'd just the right depth for their big kids in there to cause trouble. Can you tell they were having fun???
 Dad took his youngest on all the kiddie rides.
We ran out of tickets after 6 hours.............everyone had a great day!!!

 Saturday I stayed home.
Sunday Grandson J and I went to another birthday party. Thank goodness for Onstar....we found it.
Tyler turned 11 and his aunt & uncle hosted the party.  None of his school friends came but the 4 kids had fun. The boys were in the pool (or hot tub) all afternoon. My grandson even fell asleep on the way home. 
 Tim & Lana have a nice place in the country, not far from town though.
Checking out the horses.

 Laughter in the pool
It was another great day, the weather was perfect, food was yummy, and the conversation good.
Per doctor's orders I stayed out of the sun. The sun does not agree with my chemo.

Today it is really gloomy.
I WISH it would rain, we need it.
I have plans for the afternoon and am looking forward to a productive week before my next chemo on Monday.

Hope you have a great week too!!!


  1. Great pics! The pool looks inviting and I would have wanted to go in with the kids! I am glad you had a good time and were able to make both birthday parties!

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend! That is a great place to celebrate any event and you had great weather! No wonder you were tired yesterday.

  3. You have had a lovely time spending time with your family. xxx
