Fun weekend...NO shoes required!

Mix water with grandchildren (2), family, friends, add some dogs (4), snails, exploring, puddles, & fishing with rain showers in between...I'd say it was a wonderful weekend! This was the first time our granddaughters came down to visit our new waterfront home... The first thing my oldest granddaughter told me was that she received a book in the mail that she had a drawing in. She was sooooo excited to share the book with her school teacher and classmates. And of course we were so very proud about it all! To read more about it please go to my Mud Puddle Girl blog spot here... You can read more about this wonderful book here. The rest of the weekend was filled with wonderful memories, lots of family & friends... The ducks on our dock were waiting for our visitors to arrive...And when they came they realized they had forgotten their shoes! But we told them that they didn't need shoes to..

Go crab fishing with their Paw Paw...


Climb the BIG tree in our backyard...

And you certainly don't need shoes to splash in muddles here and...

or here too...

And there are NO shoes required to find...

Snails from the water...

After all the dogs don't wear shoes...BUT you might want to wear shoes when the crab pot has a little visitor...


What's that?



A Maryland blue crab! The girls were thrilled. It was released back into the water...

Later in the day, after the granddaughters headed home, we met with the honeymooners and their family at a High Street festival... even a little rain didn't spoil some fun!

High Street Festival...crafts, food, music=Fun!


The honeymooners met us there... J & J (Joey & Jodi)

And to make the weekend so perfectly sweet our daughter in law's parents and grandparents came by our new home and gave us...


Jodi's parents gave us this beautiful water picture with some wonderful wine...and Jodi's grandparents Mary Ann & Howard gave us this beautiful flag with a pole we plan to display at our hew home....Such a warm, thoughtful, and wonderful family our son has married into.

We feel blessed....

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

That does sound like the best weekend ever! Pictures don't lie...you guys had tons of fun. Your granddaughters are so adorable!

How exciting to finally receive that book! :)

The crab is so cute, I feel bad about wanting to eat him.

You received such wonderful gifts; naturally, you deserve every bit of that love, and more!

Sounds like Heaven to me! That is so exciting about the book, that is something she could share with her grandchildren. I am off to check out your new soap shop so I will talk to you there.
