A Week at Grandma & Grandpa's!

Grandchildren Brayden & Sadie are here for a week! Their baby brother Ridge is only 3 months old but I am sure he can't wait to stay when he is a little older! Cousin Hailey couldn't wait to come see them and swim. We will have a houseful all week, then next month we will have all 12 grandchildren together again here! It's a great summer of family fun!
Our son Nathan is a pilot so he flew his own kids into our little airport this morning. It would have been a 3 hour drive, so flying was only an hour! Can't beat that!
 I see a bird, no it's a plane, it's Brayden & Sadie!
Coming in for the landing!
Perfect touch~down!
There is my boy! I have flown with him in a smaller plane many times!
A big "Thumps Up" from Mommy, Sadie, Brayden & Daddy! A great flight.  
Brayden was excited as always being his Daddy's co~pilot!
The cockpit. I have actually taken the yoke (wheel) and helped fly to Catalina Island one day! Nathan was looking at the map, my hands on the yoke, and eyes straight on the island. Scared, oh yeah! It was only for a minute or two but it seemed like an eternity!
Darling luggage and pillowcases I made them. I make them a new one each Christmas.
What's the first thing they want to do at Grandma's?  
Swim of course, eat watermelon and feed the chickens!
We will cherish each day they are here at The Beehive Cottage.
Sweet babes!

Maryjane they are precious and I know how excited they were to see you and your family. You are making wonderful memories for them.

Becky from Tennessee said...

Oh my, you are brave! I am
terrified to fly and every
time I do, I must be medi-
cated....not proud of it but
it helps my family and the
entire plane full of people
to enjoy "their" flight! :-)

I have a question about your
homemade laundry detergent.
Where did you get your Zote
soap? I live in a small city
near Nashville,TN and am having
difficulty finding it. Any

Hope you are enjoying those
precious grandkids!


Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...


Not sure if you have these places in TN but this is where I have bought ZOTE:

99 Cent Store

Good Luck find some to make laundry detergent. You can always use Ivory, etc. ~Maryjane

Aw, such cuties!! I don't know who is going to have more fun... the babes or grandma? =] Enjoy it to the fullest!

Cheryl said...

What a great post. Your grands are beautiful and loved the music you played with your post...very appropriate! Must be nice to have a son who can fly. Our grands fly in today so we'll have a lot in common over the next week or two. Should be lots of fun. Have a great family time together.
