Good evening all!!

I finally downloaded all of my photos from our trip to NY. We had so much fun being Grandma and Pa to Julie's kids. I'm not sure who tired whom out, but we had fun. I think the best part about being around them was their sweet spirits (yes, Julie your girls!!). We took out a couple CD's of kids songs that we played while traveling. What sweet voices the girls had. They each had a favorite and of course they were on different discs!

We went to the Lolly Pop Farm which is an ASPCA facility that has all kinds of animals. We thought there was a petting zoo, but the goats and sheep didn't want to be petted. Never fear, the horses wanted to be fed so the fearless girls made sure they had a snack or two.

Inside the building where they have the cats, dogs, goats, sheep, birds and rabbits is this mosaic horse. Of course the girls had to ham it up around it.

This was the entrance to the 'petting zoo'.

The only animals in the petting zoo were goats and sheep and they sure didn't want to make friends!

These horses didn't bite and were real friendly.

This guy was camera shy. It is a Llama inside a barn. Every time I lifted my camera it decided to step back inside. The markings on this animal were so cool. The right side of the face and left front legs were white and the left side of the face and right front legs were black. I just wish the snot would have been bolder and shown off a little bit for me......

The girls are fearless around horses and ran right up, pulled grass and fed them. We had to practically beg them to go to McDonald's with us to get them to leave.

These are 2 of my favorite pictures of my girls. We were waiting for every one to show up for the wedding rehearsal so we played on the park equipment. They didn't slow down for anyone or anything that night.

I am so thankful for the time we were able to spend with our granddaughters. I hope we were able to make some special memories together. Now, I just wish they'd talk to me on the phone!!! Can you imagine girls NOT wanting to talk on the phone??? Yeah, me either. I have a feeling that when they do get the phone bug Mom and Dad will have to have another phone line put in.........

Never fear I have more, but, alas, it is bedtime. Maybe one day I'll be able to download pictures on here without it being a major task.
