Fun times with Granddaughters

Gettysburg,  PA

On Tuesday we took a ride to the outskirts of Gettysburg to Adams County Winery.  We remember this winery from our last visit to the area.   After sampling a few, we picked out two we enjoy - one red, one white.  Leonard says the red wine reminds him of wild muscadine grapes that he used to pick and eat in Louisiana.

On Wednesday we drove the 59 miles from Gettysburg to daughter Amy's house over in White Hall, MD.  After having dinner with the family, we brought Charlotte back to the campsite with us.

Thursday we were a little disappointed.  We had told Charlotte we were taking her to the Boyds Bear store.  We rode around and around and could not find it.  We had been there twice before.   So, I called daughter Terri who was at work.  I had her search on her computer.  The store closed January 1, 2011!   What a surprise.  When we had been there it was always crowded and seemed to have a good business.   I need to remember to Google it and get the scoop.

After dinner we drove over to the camp playground.

Shortly afterward, a group of riders came back to the stables from their ride through the battlefield.

On Friday Abby had her two-year old doctors appointment.  We had made arrangements to meet Amy and Abby over in Hanover after the appointment to bring Abby back to the campground until Sunday.

This is Charlotte on the lookout.

In the afternoon we all took a dip in the pool.  In the evening it was back to the playground.

Today we got up early and took a walk around the campground.   The girls got to pet lots of dogs also out taking their owners for a walk.

Then we went to The Land of Little Horses, right outside Gettysburg.

The big attraction was the resident donkey who appears to have free run of the place.

Charlotte volunteered and was part of the act in the Arena.  She assisted in leading one of the horses around to meet the crowd.

It was a busy morning and all was exhausted.    Abby fell asleep in the truck on the short drive back to the campground and took her one hour nap.  Charlotte is napping now.  

Here is wishing each of you a great weekend with mild weather.

It's always nice when the young ones take a nap so you can regather your strength for the next round of fun. :)

Oh, I so envy you having time with those little ones - our grands are about growed up or too far away! Now we have great grands and we're not going to see much of them as they grow :(

Have a wonderful weekend - that is one of my fav places, Gettysburg :)
