We had an adventure last weekend that was the most precious gift God could have given us right now. Eclipse 2017 began its journey across our country at the Oregon Coast just ninety miles from our home. We wanted to do something special to be part of the event. Our son and daughter-in-law live about forty-five minutes south of us and we got our heads together and 'cooked up' a gathering of grandparents to share the event with four of our grandchildren. I made some changes to Daffodil, my little vintage trailer, to accommodate comfy sleeping arrangements for my sweetheart and I. She usually has a twin-size mattress but this time we added a full-size mattress that belonged to my dear mother. We packed our things for an overnight excursion and headed south to join them for a sleep-over! We parked in our son's driveway and had our own little guest house!
The grandkids' other grandparents live near them but they were invited to spend the night, too. What fun we had! After a potluck BBQ we celebrated our youngest granddaughter's fifth birthday together. Brynlee (we call her Bryn) is the sweetest little girl. She has a loving heart and is full of fun. Cake, ice cream and gifts and then some fun games.
