Papa’s Word – when your kids finally buy the boat after sixteen years – BOAT – BOAT – we are coming home!

They have lived in a lake community for sixteen years and recently one of the boat slips

became available and their name came up to have it!

For years and years, they have wanted to have a boat but would have to tow it

down to the marina to launch.

Mike and the new boat.

So – they decided to go ahead and buy this boat and surprise the kids!

DREAMS do come true – keeping the FAITH! Debby!

With the two older girls in college playing soccer and one as a freshman in H.S.

It was time to take the leap – summer is going to be so fun!

Papa’s World – North Myrtle Beach Saint Patrick’s day parade and festival.

The parade had been canceled due to weather – rain and strong winds.

Our granddaughter was leaving that afternoon to go back to the Unversity of Lynchburg, Va.

So we made an early trip to NMB with her to take in the parade and see some vendors.

Maddy with some of the spoils thrown from the participants from the parade.

Everyone was throwing candy – shirts – hats – beads!

Sherry coming back from a golf cart dispencing Margaritas!

It was a fun time – and lasted over an hour!

A Statue of Liberty and a hat were given away!

SAINT PATRICKS DAY PARADE – NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.
PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Family memories of back home!

Madison Margo Myers – our oldest granddaughter – today she is 21 years old.

Maddy as we call her – has been with us all week for her Spring break –

this makes me smile as she chooses to spend it with us.

She has been named one of four captains for the fall soccer season

at the University of Lynchburg in Va.

She will be a senior and made the all-conference third team as a Sophomore

and second-team all-conference as a Junior.

This summer she will travel to Costa Rico with her team to play three scrimmages

one of which is against the National Olimpic – World cup team!

She was about ten years old in this picture –

today she carries a 3.80 GPA in Engineering Science!

Tammy – Marcus – Cassidy and Taylor before Bode.

We stayed with them for three months after we sold our home and moved to N.C. – S.C.

They are twins – not identical – and born early – three-plus pounds each!

Today they are 11 years old – and Taylor has shot up – almost as tall as her mother.

Cassidy plays soccer as does Bode – Taylor rides horses!

Cassidy makes things – really great things by watching UTUBE!

Taylor reads tons of books and her favorite is Harry Potter – she is at the 11th. grade reading level.

Tammy Taylor Cassidy and the witch for the Halloween party.

The innocence of youth in this picture!

They will all be coming down next month ( April) for Spring break

and trying to find a way for them to spend a week here in the summer.

It will all work out as they did last summer and they had such a good time!

Marcus Tammy and Sherry and I at a Jason Aldean concert a short distance from where we lived

We do miss these times but more than makeup for it when they come to visit.

Family is and has always been important to us.

As they all come to visit – smiles and hugs make the distance shorter.

Papa’s World – through time – family pictures.

We have at times had group family pictures – not often – but a few!
The family is outside a fence in our yard in Brambleton, Va.

This one was taken right after our little Bode was born – the first grandson on this side of the family.

It was also the same time I got a haircut – scalping from a lady – before I could stop her – she just started to lop it off.

I had not had my haircut that short since my father cut it while I was young!

This one was taken at Debby and Mikes’s house at Lake Holiday – Cross Junction, Va.

It was a themed red dress-up for Christmas – we always spend Christmas together at one or another’s home.

And that still is the case even though we are far away – we travel back to their homes.

Living life to the plus – family – always tight – always sharing memories.

Papa’s World – Memories from a tight-knit family!

A word of wisdom I follow above – enjoy Papa’s World!

We are and have been a tight-knit family – mother and daughters – admiration – close – loving.

Tammy Sherry Debby

Both daughters follow in their mother’s footsteps in Health and Nutrition –

Tammy has her own consignment business for children in name brands only.

She also runs two internets at home businesses –

Debby is a leader and Certified Health Coach and has her own internet stay-at-home business.

She is a QMND for the Juice Plus Company and a leader in Team Generations.

Sherry and Papa with the kids of Tammy and Debby – our grandkids.

The family concept is born from Sherry and her parents whom she was very close to.

She is much like her dad in his dreams of having his own businesses throughout the years.

She has his smile and tall thin build – she has her mothers youthfulness –

and growing up – they looked like each other when she was young.

Sherry – her mother Barb and her father Bill – her sister Debbie next to me and her uncle Rusty.

The girls were small – Tammy was just five and Debby ten-

second marriage for us both.

Here Tammy second from the left and Debby holding her nephew, Cousins Kristie, and Bethany & Natalia.

Aunt Ceil on the end.

We were married on June 25th. 1982

being engaged for one year.

A family to this day very – very close.

They all are!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Past memories – making new ones.

Side by side – over 40 years – making memories together.

The time has rushed by – youth to middle age to now autumn years – together as one.

Here we are today – but we were there 40 years ago – starting a journey – bound by love – together in spirit.
Spending time with family in those early years – continues today – although they are gone – memories still exist of the good times – the fun times and the love of each other. Sherry’s mother and father – Bill and Barb.
Today we have become what her parents were to our children and now us to their children.
All of the grandchildren – Christmas at our home in Brambleton, Va.

Past memories – past family gatherings – looking to the present and future of family times to come.

The present – doing what we love – golfing together.
Just the two of us during the week – afternoons – we are right in the middle of 20 plus golf courses.
The present also brings us to a small bar 1 1/2 miles from the house – watching the BILLS with friends.
A step outside of this small bar – to observe the sunset next to the small airport of OIB.

We are here now in OIB – making new friends – members of a church – exploring the area –

doctors are here now – life is going on – making new memories – but never forgetting the past ones.

We have managed to be 6 to 8 hours away from the family – but we have room for all of them.

Beaches – golfing – hiking – entertainments – venues – shopping – we are excited to share all of that.

Papa’s World – Why I write my blog – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog – the creation

PAPA – Tom

I have always been a history buff – ancient history – but also family history.

My sister and brother were fifteen and ten years older than me.

So when I came along I had missed the family fishing trips to Canada each year.

And my sister became the family photo taker and camera buff.

All the family history was passed down to my sister’s daughter and then suddenly she passed away.

Unknown to me – a friend of their family cleaned out everything and threw it away.

Everything was gone except the few pictures I had and my brother had.

I decided that what happened there would not happen for me and my family.

So – by being encouraged by my wife Sherry – we set up this blog – where all the family history and pictures can be in one place for all to see and read.

Sherry and Papa ( Tom)

She has encouraged me to write it down along with pictures for future generations to look back on.

Our family before Bode

I have two sons from a previous marriage – Troy and Shawn who still live back in NWPA.

Shawn runs an energy company contracting out to the state and large power companies.

Running state audits and working through state grants to insulate senior citizens’ homes from the harsh winters.

He covers the entire western part of Pa.

Troy – built homes from the ground up – anything you wanted he could do.

After years of doing this ( he was in high demand) Shawn talked him into coming to work for him –

His business has grown to almost seven days a week.

Troy runs the insulation and energy side while Shawn concentrates on the Audit side.

Troy is learning that side and taking tests and courses to also step in and help.

I am very proud of both these boys and trying to talk them into taking a break and coming down for a visit.

Shawn and Trisha ( our daughter-in-law)

Winterizing homes in Eastern USA for the elderly has become big business – conserving energy

on the power grid for major corporations in order to provide heat and electricity –

He has tapped into a business that for him is seven days a week.

He constantly is looking to hire people and train as auditors.

Troy started working for him a couple years ago.

If anyone is looking for a career out there – contact me – fitztdf@aol.com and I will put you in contact with him – he travels the whole western part of Pa. North to South.

Shawn ( young one ) and Troy – my sons back in NWPA!

For them I write – post pictures and give them memories that I still have in my head.

Ryan – our oldest grandson

Ryan lives in Tenn. and we have stayed in touch with him – he manages a hotel

and recently opened a bar – restaurant business with two other partners.

We attended his wedding a few years ago in Nashville, Tenn.

He has visited us once a few years ago – he served his country

and is like his father(Shawn) making his own way in the business world.

Dylan Shawns youngest son

He just spent four years in the service and is now out – living with his mother or in that area.

He reminds me so much of Shawn.

While we do not often get to see either one – both are in our memories and hearts.

Hoping they can come and stay with us in the future.

Bode – the youngest grandchild from Tammy – is the only boy with five granddaughters.

He is all boy – cars – trucks – bikes – and always without shoes and socks – even in winter! LOL

Bode’s parents and sisters and their puppy Marley.
Debby and Mike and their three daughters – Ella – Sarah and Maddy

This is my “WHY” for writing this blog – my memories put forth in words and pictures for all these grandkids and our children to read in the future.

Life in pictures in words – memories – past – present and future to come.

I want to thank my wife who is the driving force behind this blog.

SMILES – LAUGHTER – PEACE – HARMONY and POSITIVE THOUGHTS!

That is WHAT PAPA’S WORLD is all about.

Papa’s World – Family past and present!

WE ARE HERE!

Family is and has been our lives. Tight family ties – long distance now – but just a ZOOM away!

The twins when they stayed a year with us with their parents. MEMORY I cherish!

There was a time between houses that they stayed with us in Brambleton, Va.

Tight families do that.

Today – with their cousins Sarah and Ella and their little brother Bode – the twins!

They now are eleven years old – one taller – one who cares for her baby brother –

One who loves riding and grooming horses and reading –

one who is so artistic – making things like her MorMor –

One who is so gentle with the puppy and training her-

One that is in constant contact with us.

TWINS WHO ARE GROWING UP IN SEPARATE WAYS!

Family and Marley – who knows where Bode is off to! LOL
BODE and his MAMA
BODE – the golfer – soccer player and brother to his sisters.
Bode – the only grandson among the five granddaughters.

Today – they all are growing up so fast – where has the time gone?

Today – we are far away – but yet so close with zoom and calls.

Trips are made both ways – family bond – family tight – family!

Papa’s World – memories from the past – part one.

Next to the last time, I visited him for the Winter – my older brother Roger and Sherry.

Rog was ten years older than me – my sister Donna was fifteen years older.

Toward his last years of life – we would spend six weeks with him – end of January to mid-March.

We were retired then as he was by himself – his wife had passed away.

He lived in The Villages and really wanted us to move in with him.

But – we could not just leave all the grandchildren.

Those last five years were memories I shall cherish – golfing – riding the golf cart trails –

Happy hours with him – just hanging out.

Yep – I know all about this! LOL
Sherry and the twins – Taylor and little Cassidy sound asleep!

Before we moved and ten years’ worth of bonding – we were there for them as they grew up.

Fraternal twins – Taylor will be exceptionally tall – like Sherry her MORMOR –

She is the one who ZOOMS her MORMOR weekly or calls her.

She knows what days we will be home and how long.

Cherished memories are always with us.

Marcus and Tammy made a surprise visit with the little ones for a four-day stay!

Along the long walkway to the beach – this end of Sunset Beach has no houses and is the beginning of Bird Island.
People make wishes and hang shells on the tree along the 1/4 mile walkway over and through the sand dunes!
Sherry at the end of the walkway and if you turn to her left – nothing but sand – beach and ocean.

This is the start of the 1.4-mile walk to the Kindred Spirit mailbox –

No more homes – dunes with nature walks among them.

A place of solitude – walking in the surf – birds – sand – sea turtles.

Papa’s World – Debby’s birthday – family celebration

Along with meeting up for the college soccer game – it also was to celebrate the big 50 for our daughter Debby!
Aunt Debby and little Cassidy

We rented a AIRBNB so that we could all be together after months and months of seperation.

Along with meeting up to cheer on Maddy and Ella meeting for the first time on the pitch for a soccer game –

we also were having a celebration of a birthday for Debby.

A party was planned – dinner – and cake – masks – just a family coming together.

Mothers – Daughters – and Sisters

We strolled historic Lynchburg – and ended up at Bootleggers to have a special dinner.

Turning 50 is a milestone in life – and for Deb – she was mistaken by one of our neighbors

as being close in age to their 28 year old daughter!

She is a mother to three beautiful daughters and has a great husband Mike.

She is a CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH and QUALIFIED NATIONAL MARKETING DIRECTOR

for The Juice Plus Company.

A college graduate – a teacher in Health and Nutrition.

Surrounded by family – “A HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEBBY”!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS OUR FRIENDS

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

A tribute to Debby – as this is who she is – a gift to our family!

Papa’s World – the only grandson adores the three older granddaughters – Maddy-Ella -Sarah – being BODE!

Bode sitting on Maddy’s lap.

He has always adored Ella – but lately he has become close to Maddy – whenever he sees her – he sits with her.

She is the oldest and he is the youngest of the six grandchildren.

He seems to have taken soccer to heart and may be our next soccer player.

She – Ella – has always been there for him – no matter what everyone is doing – she finds time to spend with him.

He wears a sweatshirt to Ella’s soccer games with MYERS on the back – it was hers when she was his age!

A somber moment with the both of them – but in her lap he has been since he could walk!

He sits by himself and cheers for her when she is on the field – “ELLA – ELLA” !!!!

Lately he has become closer to Sarah – she is younger than the other two – but I notice him following here now that they are in college.
Sarah and Bode – I love this picture.

All three he adores – he wants to see them all the time and will ask if they are HOME from college.

It is neat to see him bonding with Sarah now – she has always been close to the twins.

The grandkids – Ella had soccer practice.

Papa’s World – Our family time at the airbnb and in historic Lynchberg, Va.

The grandkids playing UNO at the dining room table at the AIRBNB.

We all gathered at this AIRBNB for a family time together

as both older grand daughters attend college in Lynchburg Va.

A game of UNO – laughing – this AIRBNB is a 100 year old home –

that has been completly restored.

A true caption

This had been the first time as a family we were altogther –

Both family’s are back in NVA where we moved from.

MORMOR is what the little ones call Sherry – which in Swede means MOTHERSMOTHER!

Daughter Tammy is the mother to the three little ones is what I call them!

The other three I call the three older ones! LOL

To Bode – Ella is his Idol

Papa’s World – Sharing family time with MADDY!

Taylor Sarah Bode Cassidy and MADDY!

Soon – she will turn 21 – where oh where has the time gone?

I remember her little hands and fingers – locking her arms around my neck.

Picking her up from the babysitter and singing Ole McDonald Had A Farm!

Her first song she hummed to was Christopher Cross “SAILING”!

Now – she is a Junior at University of Lynchburg lady soccer team Hornets!

Starting at left front attacker – moving to right front in 2nd half and listed as midfielder in the program.

Ranked at number 22 in the top 25 in the nation in Division three soccer national polls.

THIS WOULD BE ME! LOL

We all came together to watch both Maddy and Ella play one another ( first time ever)

Ella held her own – as a freshmen –

playing almost all minutes in the entire games this season.

She lost 2 – 0 to Lynchburg –

who scored late into the second half –

the bench was the difference.

We had twelve of us – both families and all six grand kids in a air bnb –

just a few minutes from each of their dorm rooms and campus.

Tammy and the three little ones – Bode just may be our next soccer star!

We stayed four nights – watched two soccer games – had dinner both in and out –

and celebrated Maddy’s mother birthday.

While she is extremely busy – she carries a almost 4.0 in Enviomental Engineering –

She spent time with us on three different occasions.

With classes and soccer practice – that time was hard to accomplish.

Family picture – our son in law Mike had to leave to take Ella to soccer practice.

As you can see the boys are outnumbered by the girls –

We have eight ladies and four men.

All in all – MADDY got to spend precious time with us.

And we got to tour her new dorm house – three bedrooms – two bath and kitchen on campus.

Five ladies share it.

PAPA’S WORLD – LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS

Papa’s World – some random thoughts and pictures – “DAYS OF MY LIFE”!

Our granddaughter – number 13 – she deked this player out and went right past her!

She is now a Junior at the Unversiy of Lynchburg in Va. Starting the last two years – and only one loss this season – currently sole possession of first place in their conference.

Papa – Maddy Myers – Sherry

This young lady not only starts and plays most of the entire games – but is a ALL ACADEMIC –

Into hiking – sunrises – and her major is Enviromental Engineering.

And coming down the soccer pipe line – is the youngest and only boy – BODE!

Will soon turn eight and already golfs with his dad – is all boy – bikes – running –

always looks at trucks – barefooted while outside – cold weather and all.

Loves and adores his older cousin Ella who as a Freshmen at Randolph College –

starts at midfield and plays most of the whole games.

I believe Bode will be the same!

FAMILY
Beyond those protected trees is our backyard and our home!

This drainage ditch is at the end of the cul de sac –

and allows the runoff to make its way to a very large second pond in the development.

We have seen a gator in each pond!

And we found some unknown tracks in this ditch going back and forth.

I told Sherry not to get too close to the high grass as we also have snakes around here.

Just down the street – two houses – two pictures were taken in the road –

A small gator was on its way to a third pond up the road and a large copperhead was also there.

Not at the same time – but N.C, has them both where we live.

I have also seen a very large black snake – which are good as they kill the copperheads!

All part of living in the South near the marsh and beaches!

Cassidy and Marley on football game day!

At least three times a week – she either calls her MorMor or zooms!

Sherry is MorMor – Swedish for Mothers- Mother!

She is very close to her and is the one who does not want us to leave

or asks when we are coming again.

She is sweet – but also very determined and head strong.

Marley is the new puppy – a GoldenDoodle –

who judging by her legs and feet – is going to be very large!

She is loving – likes to run and pull her leash – Taylor – Cassidy’s sister –

is the one who handles her the best.

She nips and chases both Bode and Cassidy!

Our front porch in October – Low 80’s to high 70’s in the daytime

low 70’s at night – beautiful weather – slight warm breezes – why we moved here!

Front porch sitting early morning with my coffee on this glider!

Protected from the sun and rain when it blows the other way.

I told Sherry – we had to have a front porch and this is one of the models

along with a office room – that was available!

The office was her wish list!

Papa’s World – at the beach with the little ones!

Bode – heading out to Taylor and Cassidy at Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

They were so excited to be able to go to the beach each day – and it was hot – so we decided late afternoon

would be a better time to go – and they played the whole three hours in the surf – riding boogie boards

diving under the waves and getting us nervous as they would inch out farther and farther –

until I would wade out and move them back in.

“Papa – can you fasten this”?

Being young as they are is a exercise in pure energy – being old as I am – it was a exercise just to stand and brace against the waves!

But – I loved every moment of it.

Cassidy and Taylor – heading for the waves.

We did this for five afternoons – on the last night before the parents came – it was mini golf and Italian ice!

I – they – we had enough of facing the big waves and Bode wanted to play as soon as they arrived.

The twins actually ended up liking the mini golf and a lot of laughs on how each one putted the ball.

Both as different as they are but the results were the same.

The beach – we decided the last time for them – we would go to Sunset beach – and they loved it!

As did we – less commercial – more level and the sand more fine.

And it was not as rough as Ocean Isle Beach.

Calling them in for a break – away from the big waves which they were in.

Taylor would stcik more in and closer to us – these two have no fear and are so alike.

Taylor staying closer to us – Cassidy heading out to the waves.

Papa’s World – BROOK GREEN GARDENS – a must to see south of Myrtle Beach on rte 17.

If you want a peaceful walk – there are miles of trails and paths – among the old growth live oaks – the tall cypress and pine trees of South Carolina.
Along the way – a boardwalk – near the marsh – through the grounds of the old slave quarters – and see the history of this historic old plantation – and the huge rice fields – and wonder how these people lived – worked and toiled.
Scattered about over the acres and acres of the park – hundreds of bronze statues – depicting life of the world – by famous artists – some bigger than life – beautiful to see – and a story behind each one!
A building of hundreds of bronze statues – faces – animals – marble – stone – behold the beauty and capture the imagination of ones soul.
Carved out of wood – almost real like – exceptional artistic work.
Another work by the same artist – carved out of wood!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – I shall continue in the next blog with our walking tour.

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time!

Debby Ella Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy

On our way back home to NVA – we stopped in Lynchburg to watch Maddy –

Our oldest granddaughter – play soccer!

She starts as a Sophomore – and plays for the University of Lynchburg.

One thing she wanted to do – to get out in the fresh air and hike with her family!

Which we did on this paved trail that runs along the river in Lynchburg Va.

Gerhard and Jennie

One of our very first visitors after we moved to Ocean Keyes in North Myrtle Beach –

was the father and mother of our son in law – Marcus.

They came down and spent four days with us – playing cards – walking the beach –

and introducing us to a new game called RUMMIKUBE!

We have always gotten along with them and every Sunday – sat beside them in the pew!

A short visit – Sherry Sarah Debby – came to visit – Mike could not be here – Maddy was in college.

Debby and the two granddaughters came for a short visit –

and we took them hiking – which they love to do – at Vareens memorial Garden.

Walking along the ICW and over the marsh.

They will be back as we took them also to the new house build!

Carol and Mike – our close neighbors back in WNY for 12 1/2 years!

Mike and Carol – we lived next door to them – invited us and our friends – we have all been friends for years-

to their lake house in WNY -Lake Chatauqua – for a long weekend of riding the lake in their beautiful boat!

They have extended another invitation for this August – the same group – for four days!

They own a business that sends crews to do commercial painting all over the East Coast

and this year are expanding to the mid west.

Mike – started this when he was very young — and what a company he has turned it into!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

Cindy Papa Sherry Carol

On the lake in Mike and Carols boat!

All eight of us fit very comfortable – we spent three days cruising the lake for hours at a time!

All eight of us have been friends for years and years!

Memories of the past 16 months continues in the next blog! Join – it is all free!

Papa’s World – more memories of the past six teen months – living life one day at a time.

Before the Pandemic and while in Florida – met up with very old friends – Lynda and Fred – going back some 45 years!

I knew both before I met Sherry – Freddie and I went to 7th. grade thru 12th. grade.

We met at a place that was half way to where they live in Florida and to where we were staying!

Great time with old friends. MEMORIES!

We traveled before the Pandemic – meeting friends along the way.

And – – we were careful – as were some more friends we met.

Almost seven months after the start of the Pandemic – we met up with Pam and Bob – in Berkeley Springs WV.

Bobby and I go back to grade school – friends for life.

Sports – a few drinks – camping out – running the streets – never anything destructive – just boy hood memories.

By the time this blog posts – Pam and Bob will stop in on there way back to New England.

They have a drive RV towing a car.

We are all safe – testing and vaccinations.( except Sherry who is allergic to the vaccine)

It will be good to once again relive memories – Freddie – Bobbie and I had growing up!

Many memories – friends – family and life in general. The journey living life one day at a time.
John and Nancy – members and friends form our church – Community Lutheran Church in Sterling Va.

Fourteen years we attended services there.

John and Nancy moved to Charleston about a year before we moved.

On our way back from Florida – just before the Pandemic – we stopped in and stayed – regaling in memories.

They gave us a walking tour of Charleston’s waterfront and historic district.

A few months after we moved to Myrtle Beach area – we met halfway in Georgetown S.C.

And – about a month or so ago – they visited us at the condo.

Friends – MEMORIES!

Papa with son in laws Mike and Marcus.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

I will continue MEMORIES of the PAST SIXTEEN MONTHS in the following blog.

Papa’s World – finally – we got a warm day for the beach and water – FAMILY KROHN!

TAYLOR CASSIDY BODE

Once it was in the mid to high ’70’s and full sun –

Into the water they went!

Notice how protective Cassidy is of her little brother!

They fight and argue – but no one touches him according to her!

These two should have been the twins

they act and sound just alike.

She is so kind – loving and thoughtful.

Cassidy and Bode – two peas in a pod!
Taylor – or “TATTER TOT” as her cousin Ella calls her!

She on the other hand loves her alone time away from the other two! LOL!

She rides horses – and whenever around her MorMor – holds her hand.

She is the serious – studious one who quotes facts!

“AS AMATTER OF FACT” she says and then goes on to tell you!

BODE – after FIVE GRAND DAUGHTERS – he is the only boy and all boy!
Only six years old – and will be tall like Taylor!
Bode – cars – trucks – bikes – playing Army – running – riding – scraps – bruises – scabs – star wars – monsters – independent – never wearing shoes or socks and shirtless in the cold!

It was a very warm day in the sun – water to me was very cold – but they loved it!

Taylor is goin to be really tall like her MorMor – I think close to six foot!

They played and played in the water – coming out to run up and tell us something and then back they went!

For us – it was sit and take it all in – the sun was warm which is what I like!
Cassidy – small but a spitfire! Always calling her MorMor as does Bode! Love you Papa she says!

Yes – the sun was warm – the sand was also – yet the water was cold – but to them – it was their day at the beach!

Papa’s World – Alligator adventure – Family Krohn

One of the things they wanted to do was see alligators!

And here in North Myrtle Beach is a place called ALLIGATOR ADVENTURE!

There are hundreds of the reptiles in there!

The biggest being 20 feet long and weighing 2000 lbs. !

This is a picture of a alligator being fed by one of the employees! This was not the really big one!

They got to watch the feeding – I wonder how they feed all these alligators and how they make sure all get fed!

They even had a albino alligator!

They have other animals – birds and snakes!

These weighed 3 or 4 hundred pounds and there were three of them!

Papa’s World – just some random thoughts and pictures of the family Krohn.

The Krohn family and Sherry – granddaughters – daughter and son in law.

They have visited for almost a week.

The weather – bearable – low 60’s to low 70’s but with chilly wind.

Marcus and I took Bode out golfing on Monday!

He has pretty good form and Marcus is getting him lessons.

He is only six years old and I think the highlight for him is driving the golf cart! LOL

I told Marcus – you need to get him lessons plus doing cross country

He almost ran the whole golf course!

Taylor Sherry ( MorMor) Bode

They walked to the beach every day.

Most days I would drive the car down as we had all the chairs and beach stuff!

Some days – as in this picture – we all walked carrying the “STUFF”!

Daddy and Taylor – she is a little daddy’s girl!
Cassidy and Daddy – independent little spitfire – but very caring – for her brother and sister.
Bode and Daddy – all boy – trucks – tools – sports – running – full of energy – barefoot – coat less – teasing – BOY!

Yesterday was a full beach day – warm – sun – and kids in the water!

Too cold for me – but in the sun – hot!

Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – notice how Cassidy takes care of Bode!

Such a protective little girl – a heart of warmth!

Papa’s World – Coloring eggs on the lanai -exploring Barefoot Landing – LITTLE ONES!

One of the first things Sherry did for the little ones after they had a good nights sleep-

Was to color Easter Eggs!

So – she hard boiled the eggs – set up on the Lanai – and they got to it!

Taylor Cassidy Bode – on the Lanai overlooking the small lake at Ocean Keyes – coloring Easter Eggs!

This has been a tradition with MorMor – as they call her -Swede for Mothers Mother!

She has done this even before Bode – who is six was born!

Afterward – things were washed up and packed for Tammy to take back to NVA!

Cassidy Bode Taylor

I think Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins!

They are so much alike and act the same.

It is hard for me to tell the difference if I am not looking at them – to see who is talking!

Now – Bode is going to be tall like Taylor – who is so laid back!

She likes her “TAYLOR” time!

She also is going to be the tallest of the granddaughters

With Maddy being 5′ 6″ – Ella 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah pushing Ella at 14 years old!

We took the family to Barefoot landing in North Myrtle Beach –

We had taken them there before and the little ones love the playground!

There was a Easter Egg hunt – scavenger – find the different stores hunt going on!
Cassidy at one of our favorite stores!
Cassidy and Taylor with I think Frozen Princess’s

Then it was time for a late lunch – our reservations were ready!

Family time
