Our Day with Stella

Our mission, was to let Stella watch us yesterday!


After staying inside for an hour it was time to put on shoes and go outside.


We first cleaned and washed a rock. Then Stella applied a couple coats of gold paint to place at Sir Logan’s garden.


She was interested in the section of culvert pipe, but didn’t want to get too close until SHE HEARD THE ECHO of her name when I called. Then we spent some time ‘echoing’ each other.


Then it was down the hill to finish painting the GAS sign. BUT going down the little hill YOU MUST jump the small ditch (526 times, I think) Below is Grandma and Stella jumping it.


In outlining the G-A-S letters there were a couple extra lines accidently on purpose, that became small snakes



Leaving the back ‘40’ you cannot use the wooden steps, but climb the dirt steps (653 times).


Then it is time to swing. Grandpa can’t push because he allowed Stella a boo-boo once. So Grandma must push.


Then there is time in the sand box.


And the bridge over the little ditch you must cross (several times).


Then inside for snack and a nap


And you would be surprised how many things you can do with a feather you find in Great Grand’s motor home. You can tickle noses and laugh for a long time.


Another photo-op at Sir Logan’s flower garden.


And then end the day sitting in the ‘big people’s swing waiting for mama to come home from work.


The day ended at Chuck E Cheeses. We had a full fun day.

Stella can also entertain herself with the little guys from Frozen!  Ever hear of that movie, Frozen? (LOL)

I believe Stella would have liked this 1951 Studebaker.

What a great day you had with Stella! I enjoyed sharing it with you and Sherry! She seemed to be very curious and creative with her play :) And of course she is so adorable! I think all young ones like the movie Frozen :)



Stella is one sweet little girl. Looks like the three of you had quite a day together exploring and playing. You can never go wrong by taking a little one to Chuck E Cheese.

I think every little girl needs and G'pa Jack and G'ma Sherry in their lives! Precious memories.

Love the say Sir Logan's resting place turned out.

Stella is a sweet little girl. She
has such grown up conversations.
She enjoys everything new that is
happening with the Family. Very
good pictures.

I think a day spent like that is really something special for both grandparents and grandchildren, in your case great grands. Children do tend to look at things differently than we do and make everything an adventure and fun. Glad you had a great day !
