I actually had a wonderful weekend with my mother and oldest daughter. They didnt get here until about 9:30 friday night. My mother rented a cabin near where we wanted to do things. It was a nice cabin that had two beds and a pull out couch. We vivited a little bit when we got there and then went to bed. We woke up in the morning and made breakfast. The cabin had a kitchen so we didnt have to go out. Then we went to a place called the "litte red school house'. We had alot of fun there. They had all kinds of reptiles and some small furry and feathered creatures. The guy that owned the place was there and he let the kids and I feed the crocodiles. That was very interesting to do. Then he taped one of the crodiles mouths shut and we were all able to hold him. After that he took out the Boa contrictor that he had there an let us hold him. I was the only one brave enough to hold him. I let him crawl all over me. Snakes don't bother me at all. My kids wouldnt go anywhere near it. lol We also got to hold a bearded dragon which wasnt anything new to us because we used to own one. We also saw possums and a marmoset. We had a very good time. I will post pictures as soon as my daughter sends me some online from her digital camera. We had alot of fun in there. Next we went to the park so the kids could play. Of course it started raining for a bit so that cut that short. We went back to the cabin and made a fire outside and roasted hot dogs and marchmallows. I love the taste of a roasted hot dog. In the evening , my daughter ,my son and I went to see a movie. We saw "Made of honor". I thought the movie was very funny.
The best part of the whole visit was the box that my mother had brought me from Texas. There were things in it that belonged to my grandma who passed away a few weeks ago. She gave me her robe and slipper. I also got some old picutre of me and her when I was little. There were also a bunch of cards and letters that I had sent her. She kept them all!! There were stacks of them. I also got some knick knacks that belonged to her and the kids had gotten some as well. I just cant believe she kept all the letters and cards I sen her! There were tons. She even kept my birth announcement from when I was born. I really miss my grandmother.
All and all weall had a great visit.Time went by fast though. There werent any fights between my mother and I at all. My oldest daughter and I bickered but that isnt anything unusual. lol I really will miss them. I wont see them again until sometime in July. It kind of made me want to try to move down state to be near them again. I know we dont have the money to relocate right now plus I know things wouldnt remain so good between my mother and me if I lived closer to her. Well I have to get lunch ready for the kids and then I am going to take the dogs out for a walk.
