I didn't get a chance to do a blog yesterday. I was the official day care person for the oldest great granddaughter while her mom and the Queen worked. We sure had a good time. We went for a short wagon ride in the morning to pick up milk at the corner store. The grandson's came over and raked my back lawn which I had not done last fall. The little girl helped by running and jumping in the piles of leaves. A great help that was. :) After the lawn was done we all had a treat of my cinnamon rolls and milk. The yeast less cinnamon rolls were a hi it and the dozen and a half I made quickly disappeared. I think I may have started a family feud though. The SIL remarked that the rolls were good, just like his mom used to make. When he went out again the daughter said " He shouldn't have said that because now I won't make them. :) You should never compare mom's cooking to the wife's. She did take a copy of my recipe though:).
When the daughter and her family left we had a picnic , eating our soup and sandwich out at the picnic table then I took Abbey for her walk with the little girl in tow in a wagon. I thought the 2.5 mile walk in new shoes might be a bit much for the 4 year old. On our way home we saw McCain's special little train they use to bring product and vegetable oil from and to the plant along their own line to the main line where the CPR drops off and picks the stuff off.
On our way home we met the Queen coming home from work.
The little girl sure enjoyed her day with papa and slept soundly after all the fresh air and activities.
