Around the World in a Heartbeat!

The Milan Library had a music concert as their grand opening for the Summer Reading Program. The lady did some geography with a stuffed globe, sang songs & used instruments from around the World.
Elianna was excited to be so close to a harp before the program started!

Until after the show, when she was the first one picked to actually play the harp.

Then she was very, very excited!

Selah was one of the children picked to play a maraca during a song!

She walked right up and played in front of the crowd with no hesitation.

A couple other instruments.

Broken Car!

As we were driving home from the concert, Elianna yells from the back seat, "Grandma, Grandma, did you see that broken car?" I explained that the car was called a convertible and you could drive with the top down. She then exclaimed unbelieving, " So do they break it before or after they buy it?" "That would be really cold in the winter!"
I didn't even begin to tell her that people pay more for a "broken car".

Boys' First Grandma Day

Levi & Micah had their first Grandma Day.

Yes, each child gets started younger & younger!

Actually the girls had a playdate so I watched the twins so Angela could go too!

I took pictures, fed, diapered, held , and played with them.

I was rewarded with tons of smiles, coos & a little spit-up.

It was a great Grandma Day!!!!

First time Bowling

I took the girls bowling for their first time. I had signed up for this program where the girls can bowl 2 free games every weekday this summer. (Thanks for the info Melanie!) All I have to pay is $1.99 each for their shoe rentals.
Interesting note this bowling alley has some zones that are always smoke free and the whole building is smoke free from noon to six every day.

Elianna sporting her fancy special shoes. She loved them and asked if she could keep them!

Ready, Set, Roll!

Elianna was very excited whenever she hit pins. She rolled a 58.

After several times of the lane not scoring Selah's downed pins, I went and asked what I could do to put them in the computer manually. They said her ball was rolling too slow. So they brought out this ramp for her to push her ball down. She scored 46.
Both girls had a blast. We will definitely be doing this again.

Health Exploration

Selah crawling through the ear.

Elianna's favorite was climbing through the digestive tract. Here she is in the stomach.

Winding her way through the small intestines.

Elianna laughing hysterically when I told her she was poop coming out.

Selah's favorite was picking the nose. If you stuck your hand up far enough you would get a very loud sneeze.

Wild Life

Saturday, May 16, 2009


This was a wonderful event with many trucks and vehicles for the girls to explore. All of the trucks had lines for the children who wanted to sit in them and pretend to drive.The girls stood very patiently in each of the lines until our last one the K-9 unit. We still had about 4-5 families in front of us when Elianna asked if she could go ask the police officer the dog's name. Next thing I notice, He is putting her in the unit, in front of all these kids waiting in line. Dear Elianna, she is so convincing she can talk a police officer into breaking the law!

The Garbage Truck was the first one they wanted to explore.

These pictures were a case of me telling them both to run over and stand under the H on the bus so I could take a picture. Well somehow Elianna thought I just meant her. As her face shows she was mad that I said Selah could be in the picture too. But I love the body language of Selah when she found out.

Elianna is talking on the radio and Selah is checking the inside mirrors to see the passengers on the bus.

Selah was afraid because of the height of the moving truck but Elianna loved running around in the back of it.

Selah inside U.S. Mail vehicle. Elianna was driving. We were also allowed to go into a Mobile Post Office used for emergencies.

Harley Girls told me they were going to get Little Gene! (He is the son of Chad's friend that lives in Florida.)

New Playground

We went to a new park today.

It now holds the title "Best Playground for my Grandchildren!"

After 3 years of holding the title, I'm sorry to announce the park in Md is now the runner-up.

Elianna is such a good big sister!

Selah in the wind.

Elianna said, "Now I look like cousin Aby!"
Selah asked, "Where we going ?" "Where am I driving you?"

Elianna aka Lioness

Elianna was sad a friend had to leave.

Normally I don't let the girls play on the swings when we go to a park. #1 I would rather they be running around playing. #2 My chest hurts to push them. But because of the springs these swings were easy to push. The girls enjoyed this unexpected treat.

This climbing wall was made of a flexible material.
