Bill and I took a few days to get away to Lancaster and Lititz, PA. The Amish Country is so restful and the quaint little town of Lititz was so cute. We visited Wilbur's Chococate Factory where I do believe the best chocolate in America is made. I guess Obama visited this factory on his campaign tour. We walked the streets of Lititz where time appears to just stand still. The old church is Moravian and quite beautiful. The colors of the trees were bursting in reds and oranges. What a great time to take a breather from the rat race. We also took in a show at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater. It was really good. We really needed these three days.

Papaw Davis, affectionately known as "Pops" passed away on Oct 6. We loved him so much. He always had a smile especially for the grandchildren. He was a war hero decorated with a bronze medal for his work as a medic in the Campaign on Rome in WW II. He was a coin collector collecting some amazing old coins. He loved his cigar and nightly wine and we will miss sitting with him on the back porch as he enjoyed his cigar. He was always so appreciative of anything you would do for him saying "I thank ye" I loved being called his favorite daughter in law. (I know, I was his only one) He never made a difference loving everyone equally. He never had anything bad to say about anyone and really seemed to like Baylee. Baylee, of course loves everyone and is quite a good therapy dog. She always made him smile when she would stretch out on the couch without a care in the world. We will miss him, but we can only imagine the great reunion in the next life with his wife of 60 years, Mimi. Bye Pop's. See you later.

Rylie is now off to the fourth grade! She was ready to go back. She get's a little bored at the end of summer. Evan looks like he is enjoying posing for the picture. What kind of face is he making? He looks a little ornery. Rylie looks so pretty. I wish she wouldn't grow up so fast.

School Shopping trip to Tangier Outlets . The kids got new Converse Tennis Shoes. They are so cute. Here is Evan sporting his new shoes sans pants of course. I will add a pic of Rylie modeling her new shoes later when I can get a good pic of them. They are bright yellow with purple strings.

Wonderful day for a picnic! Rylie's Gymnastics group and family gathered together for a picnic at Rock Lake near Valley Falls. A day full of swimming, eating, volleyball and playing in the sand. The kids had a great time. Afterwards, everyone went to Valley Falls to watch the kayaks go over the falls.

Took a day to take the kids to Kennywood Park in Pittsburgh. It was so much fun for the kids! Here are just a few pics of the fun! And yes.....I actually rode three rides including two roller coasters. I can still do it! Love that Jack Rabbit Roller Coaster! It feels like it jumps the track. They say the secret is the double dip with "air time".

My blog is now four years old. It started with me turning 50 years old at the beach and I proudly published my first pic of me at the beach. Since I celebrate my birthday each year at the beach, it is only fitting to commemorate the moment with another beach pic with my favorite hobby...knitting. We had a great week of rest. Lots of reading and knitting accomplished. Steve and Kristina were able to come this year. The only thing missing were Stacy and Brad and the grandkids. Hope they can come next year.

Stacy called me and asked me to check out her facebook pics. It seems that Evan was entirely too quiet in his room coloring. When Stacy and Brad went to investigate, here is what they found. Evan was coloring all right....coloring himself! And quite proud of his handiwork I must say. Can you say ornery? By the way, the marker was washable ink and removed nicely in the bath. Could have been worse. Could have been a permanent Sharpie.

Mothers got in free at Pittsburgh Zoo on Mothers Day. It was a fun day. Evan was amazed at the animals and Rylie enjoyed scaring Mamaw with snakes. The polar bear exhibit was really nice. If you ask the kids what there favorite thing was to see as the zoo, they will tell you about the amazing rhino pooping. It was impressive I must say.

Stacy celebrated her 31st birthday with a pedicure from Body and Balance. Brad made her dinner and she enjoyed the evening with her family. Her birthday present? A Vera Bradley purse! I want one! Stacy you are still so beautiful! Happy Birthday!

What fun we have when sleepovers happen at Mamaw's and Papaw's. We went shopping, did crafts, and played and played and played. Evan loves his Matchbox cars and Rylie decorated a whole new binder for school. Evan loves his "sissy" and wants her to rock him when it was time for nap. Rylie complied while still watching "Jonas Brothers" new TV episode. Baylee is recovering from the increased decible levels. She has to make sure Papaw knows she is still the "baby" of the house.

Evan is two and now knows the age old grandparent's secret.....Mamaw and Papaw's house is awesome fun! Evan had a sleepover with us this weekend and enjoyed the warming weather with a tour of the area parks. We really hated for him to go home. The cutest thing he did this weekend is sit immediately on the floor when we commanded the family dog, Baylee, to sit while waiting for a treat. Evan sat beautifully. Baylee.....not so much.
