Paint Ball Time

On July 7 we went to my brother’s place where he has several acres set aside as a paint ball shooting area. The whole family was invited but it was the younger ones who participated.e mask

 Terry took these photos while I sat in the cool log cabin with my nieces and sister-in-law.

Everyone was divided into two teams, given instructions and a face mask. Most of them wore camo clothing. How you could tell if you were shooting at friend or foe, I don’t know but several grandchildren delighted in shooting their grandpa.

Afterwards, we met for a picnic with lots of food and lemonade and tea to drink.

Girl's Day Out

Last week I was able to have a girl’s day out with my daughter-in-law Shelly and great            granddaughters Angelina and Mercedes.  

While in Pella each girl stood in one of the huge Dutch shoes by the Ver Meer windmill.

  They went on a tour of the windmill where I got a photo of them high in the air. 

They asked me to take this photo of them in the historical village.  

We were alone in the Scholte gardens so they decided to run along the sidewalks. 

We didn’t see any live butterflies in the butterfly garden in Knoxville but they posed for photos until they were all tuckered out under the gazebo.
