ride to the park

The kids picked me up on sunday and we headed up north.

It was a warm day,near we had to have the air on.the boys were in funny mood.they were talking up a storm.I had to stop at the store to get some thing.and desided to pick up some candy,bad Idia!!!the boys and candy do not mix.they turn into moter mouths.and they already was funny cause they had already eaten the candy when I reilized what I had done.

I said Oh noooo I forgot they shouldnt have candy on long rides.its too late now mom my son in law said!!!so we listened to two mouths run like a wiperwills butt in a wind storm!!!!poor Anna was in the back with them.

we went up the river road and saw a eagle on a tree.I spotted it and yelled and pointed it out.the son in law said geez mom I almost ended up on the graud rail.they were laugthing cause he was playing like he was bouncing off the rail.
Anna said yes mom he streers where he is looking.I kept my mouth shut then so we didnt end in the river.

we got to the park and we drove over so I could show them where I want to park when I camp.they showed me the one they wasnt to far from where theirs was almost empty in the camping area just one camper.

we pulled down to the north camping site and the guys went and Anna sat in the van and just talked.the boys had left poor Dad as he was talking to them.he comes and says mom do you feel like your talking to your self?i said all the time.I just talk to the Lord then I dont feel so bad!!!

the breeze was cool under the trees so I didnt need the air.if its too hot I get sick,but it was just right. Anna busyed herself getting pic,s of the guys as they I watched and thought about the boys were getting bigger and soon they would have familys of their own.and bring their own kids here.I felt like I was getting older by the minute.I remembered when mom use to go with them for rides.I missed her and the times we went to the place where the swans and geese where.

Anna is a good mom,she does nice things for her was her Idia to go for the ride.she packed a lunch ,but the boys were too hungery when they got home from mowing they had to eat before they came.she fixed a sandwich for me and I eat it while they fished.

the river is so pretty here where we sat.its one of the most lovely parks I know.I have come here for most of my mom and Dad use to bring me up there.the kids love to camp here every year at lest once.they go other places to.

we drove along the the other side of the river and then headed home the way we was a nice ride.we came close to town and the boys were looking for I told the son in law to stop and Id get us some cheese burgers and frys.we filled our faces on the way back.

the kids dropped me off and I went up and put my night gown on and eat my cheese burgers.the sky was getting darker and a rain storm moved in as I watched TV.the lighting flashed across the sky and the smell of rain filled the room.I could hear thunder off in the was a good day.I layed in bed and listened to the rain and the thunder ,I fell asleep .

Hi Leann ~~ I am so glad you had such a happy day with your family. It is
so important to spend time together.Glad you liked the story of the Ant and the contact lens and that the Lord helps your family to find things. I don't get to go out very often, so I enjoy even the shopping days each fortnight. Take care, Leann. Love, Merle.
