Happy Mother's Day to all you Mom's & Grand Mom's out there! Hope you have a relaxing day! We have a busy week ahead of us. Hopefully, a estate auction with lots of toys, some toys coming in that we purchased from people through the mail, and our "grand daughter" weekend coming up.
Every year we take each grand child on an over night trip to someplace special. The older grandson we have taken to Gettysburg PA each yr. The oldest grand daughter, Sturbridge Village, Vermont (Teddy Bear Factory & Ben and Jerry's Factory), Concord Mass., and this year over to Corning NY to the glass factory. Well, we just discovered Western NY has quite a few flea markets by Corning! Our grand kids love to look for toys too! (Imagine that). So we hope to find some nice treasures. Hope you all have a great week!
