Papa’s World – trip to waterpark with granddaughters and grandson – Ida Lee waterpark – Leesburg Va.

Sherry with Bode – Taylor – Sarah and in front Cassidy – grandkids!

As promised for the twins birthday celebration – their cousin Sarah would stay overnight and we all went to

the waterpark the next day. Ida Lee Waterpark and since it was Labor day weekend –

hardly anyone was there!

This sits just outside Leesburg Va.

Bode was with them but had to use the restroom!

The only way for him to join up with them again was to get a tube and get in as they passed him on the lazy river.

Sarah Cassidy and Taylor

The water was a little cold but okay after they were in. The temps had cooled down to mid ’70’s!

All in all – we were there three or four hours!

The park itself is not that big and lots of lifeguards – making it easy for us to sit one place and watch them!

Since it was a holiday weekend – most people had gone out of town – it was not crowded at all!

They had a blast on the slides and pools and lazy river – a obstacle course and a place to snack.

Sarah about to go under the water fall! I would bring them back again and we had shade to sit in!

LAZY RIVER – IDA LEE WATERPARK , LEESBURG VA.

Papa’s World – Twins birthday – MARLEY puppy – and cousin Sarah comes to visit!

The twins turned eleven years old – Cassidy and Taylor birthday!

Yes – they are twins – and they had to be taken out early because Taylor was taking all the nourishment!

Today – Cassidy is normal for her age but Taylor is going to be real tall – like her MORMOR –

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Sherry is 5′ 9″ and she will be taller than that.

Bode – who turns eight is also going to be tall and here is cousin Sarah – who at soon to be 15 – is gaining on Sherry!

We went back to NVA to watch the little ones and the puppy Marley – and Sarah came for overnight!

MARLEY at six months old – a puppy who likes to play keep away and run and run.

She is adorable and is a Goldendoodle – judging by her feet – she will be very large! She is so friendly and loving.

But – you must make sure to keep things out of reach as she tends to chew – thus she stood up and grabbed the hat of our son in law and that became history! LOL

And at night – after all day with MARLEY and the little ones – sleep was welcomed! LOL
A very proud grandmother – Sherry with all four – missing the two oldest who are in college – best birthday among

the cousins celebrating by a road trip with Debby and Sarah into Washington D.C. to the city ZOO!

ME – I GOT TO HANG WITH MARLEY!

Papa’s World – graduation – party – family!

Ella’s sisters – Maddy and Sarah at the graduation – hard to believe that come fall – Sarah is the only one left at home – she enters H.S, in the Fall and Maddy enters her Junior year and plays and starts soccer for Lynchburg University. She will play against Ella.
Ella’s number one fan – her nephew Bode who adores her – here he is wearing Ella’s old sweatshirt she gave him!
After the game – he ran to her and she picked him up – he adores her and she is so good to him. That is our Ella!
The Three Sisters – Maddy – Ella and Sarah.
Ella’s mother Debby – Ella – her best friend Olivia and her mother Amy – they have lived beside each other all their lives and the mothers are close friends. What also is unique – they have Sarah from Debby and Justin from Amy who are also the same age and in the same grade who are as close as Ella and Olivia.
Sarah and Justin – same age – same grade and close friends – neighbors for life.

Papa’s World – Star Wars – Hollywood Studio – Disney – a dream come true!

Outside the entrance to Hollywood studio’s – where we took Ella for her 16th. birthday present.

She opened the envelope at her birthday party in July!

There was a picture of Star Wars and the attraction in Florida at Disney World.

“You will spend one week with grandma and grandpa in Florida!

You will ride down with them at the end of Jan.

and go to Holly Wood studios to see Star Wars

and at the end of the week – for the first time ever

They will put you on a plane and you will FLY back home!

Bode – who his World is Ella – and she is so good to him.

We had done something special for Maddy when she turned 16.

Her wish was to be able to swim with the Manatee’s!

So – in the winter – she and her mom flew down –

and she did just that – and then we all drove back home!

Ella – her little buddy is Bode

He follows her everywhere and she just laughs!

She is so good to him and when she goes to college next year

She wants to become a Phys Ed teacher to the little ones!

She will be excellent – so kind – so much of a good heart.

And a very good soccer player.

We spent the time touring with her also – showing her where my brother lived

and the three town centers of The Villages!

Brownwood of the villages.

We went to see the Manatees and the beach on the West coast

We toured the town where we were staying – and stopped in the coffee shop

to get her a chocolate chip cookie each time – she loved that!

Soon it would be time for her to FLY!

Standing in line as we all watched – her forst time and she handled it like a pro.

Tears welled in my eyes –

my little Ella ( tiny) is what we called her

all grown up and out on her own.

Now – be careful – don’t mix with strange people I worried.

When she was small – she would always come to me – clutch my leg –

climb up into my lap.

I cherish those memories – “IS HE OKAY” she said to her mother

when I had my heart attack.

YES I HAD A LUMP IN MY THROAT

as I went from vantage point to vantage point watching her in the long line.

Ella and Sherry – a trip she will always remember.

Papa’s World – our granddaughter – Ella Myers – senior night soccer – honored!

We made the trip back to NVA to see Ella play soccer for her senior recognition night and picked up the three little ones so they could cheer her on! Taylor – Cassidy and Bode.

Ella will continue on in college playing soccer for Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

She lost two years with injuries to her feet breaking a bone in each one.

But – she was determined and it paid off.

Her team is now 8 – 0 – 2 and headed to states.

They have five players continuing onto the college level!

Ella number nine – entering the field to play final game of regular season at James Wood H.S. Winchester Va.
Olivia holding the picture of Ella as a little one – have gown up together as neighbors and best friends.
Proud parents – Mike and Debby
Being escorted by her parents and honored on the field.
All family – friends and neighbors who came out to support Ella and her being honored pregame.
The only boy in the grandchildren with Ella’s Sister Maddy – they will compete against each other in college soccer!

They ended up in a double overtime tie for the game – 0 to 0!

They moved onto the districts –

But we were able to come home and watch four games.

Papa – Ella – Sherry proud grandparents – TINY as we called her – has grown up!

ELLA MYERS SENIOR JAMES WOOD H.S. WINCHESTER VA.
With two foot injuries – broken bones – losing two years of competition – she overcame and is playing college soccer!

ELLA MYERS – our little TINY – PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – random pictures – kids – golf – and a rainbow in the fountain on the lake.

Today – I post some pictures – just random pictures – but ones I have close to my heart!
Taylor holding MorMor’s hand – in turn MorMor also holding Bode’s hand.

They adore Sherry – whom they call MorMor – Swede for Mothers Mother!

When we walk with all three – it usually is Taylor who loses out to the other two in holding her hands.

This time it was Cassidy – who with each passing day – is becoming more and more independent.

These two are coming closer and closer together as they grow up.

They are twins – but had to come early as Taylor was taking all the nutrients.

Taylor is going to be really tall – close to six foot while Cassidy will be like her mother 5’6″.

Taylor loves to ride horses – Cassidy has a variety of interests –

but will sit for hours drawing off her computer and is really good!

I thought this to be funny – it brought a smile to my face!

We moved south to find more time to golf – warmer weather and being close to our friends!

Sherry and Cindy – we have been friends with the McBrides for almost 35 years.

They moved about 25 or 26 years to the Wilmington N.C. area – and we would spend time with them once or twice a year.

Then we moved to NVA and they would do the same.

Now – we are building a new home about 40 miles away from them –

and if the weather is nice – we golf once a week with them –

always on a new course – could be on the weekend or a week day.

They can and do stay with us and we do the same with them.

If our new home is not done on time and we have to give up the condo – they have offered us a place to stay.

FRIENDS! GOOD TIMES! LAUGHS!

This is what we have wanted to do for a very long time – it was too expensive in NVA and down here so many courses to choose from.

We both have a love to golf – one of Sherry’s highlights in golfing came with the day she broke 50 –

and it was a day she was golfing with her father!

A memory she shall always carry with her on the course. Now – she beats me! LOL

The view we have almost every morning when we wake up – the master bedroom has a big glass sliding door on her side of the bed – where all she has to do each morning is open her eyes and see this.

I see it each morning also – but I always am up before the dawn – have been that way all my life.

My favorite time of the day – writing my blog – sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise –

listening to the sounds of nature and just enjoying morning time.

Now the sun shines – causing a rainbow in the mist of the water fountain!
A peaceful setting we shall miss when we leave – but we have had by the end – nine months.

A memory we shall carry forward into the new home.

You can hear the pounding surf a half mile away –

We walk there almost every day –

the water fowl – geese – ducks – mallards – swans – otter – turtles – snakes

and really huge fish we can see when we look down onto the water.

Storms blowing in and out – rain and wind – nature at its best.

It would of been nice to have lived to the left of the picture – single family homes!

But – they were way too expensive – and the condos here – not enough space and no garage.

We have a storage unit – not a lot – but enough so that it would not fit.

The town houses here besides the condo’s – were out of our price range –

plus the one we looked at – needed a lot of work.

This is a beautiful area – one I shall remember –

We were blessed to have spent time here – but it also was expensive!

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 – 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!

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

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa” World – looking back in time – THE TWINS – Taylor and Cassidy – such sweetness!

A little over 10 years ago – they came along – so tiny – early – because they determined one was taking all the nutrition.

And – the day they decided this – just happened to be their mother’s birthday!

That is right – mother and daughters now celebrate the same day birthdays!

IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME!

Cassidy and Taylor – they were so small with Taylor weighing some 13 oz. more!

Does not sound like much – but they both weighed some 3 lbs. plus oz. !

Through out life for them – Taylor has always been the bigger of the two.

They were so darn cute – playing hide and seek!

Cassidy is a little spit fire – Taylor more laid back!

They continue to grow this way – my thought is – Cassidy will end up taller than her mother who is
5′ 6″ tall – and Taylor is taking after her MorMor ( Sherry 5’9″) and will be close to 6’0 when all is said and done! She already is over 5′ at ten years old! Look at Cassidy’s socks!
Taylor and Bode with MorMor( Sherry) Bode is going to be tall also as he is only six years old!

Sweetness – Taylor rides horses – Cassidy is the more serious type – she teaches the other two crafts.

Taylor is always ready to help her in schoolwork –

Cassidy the more daring one – you can just tell that by the picture!

Both love their MorMor and both will call her!

The little SPIT FIRE! Cassidy – ” Someday I am going to be big” she says!

She has the biggest heart – always watching over the other two – her and Bode are two peas in a pod!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – She will turn 18 this summer – it seems like yesterday she was Tiny – Ella College – Randolph College Va.

Ella – our second oldest granddaughter – enrolling in Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

We called her “TINY” as she was growing up –

Her father came up with that nickname –

Today she stands 5′ 8 1/2 ” –

Our little girl is all grown up!

Along with her entrance into the four year program – she will also play college soccer – being recruited – she had two schools to select from – and it just so happens to be cross town from the University of Lynchburg – where her sister starts on the soccer team there – and yes they will compete against one another!
Ella with her mother Debby – all three granddaughters are as tall or taller than their mother. Debby’s mother – Sherry – is 5′ 9″ – so they are most likely inheriting the Swedish genes from her.
It is a beautiful campus – nestled in the foothills surrounding Lynchburg.
The soccer field a easy walk from the dorms.
Ella with her father Mike.

She endured two injuries during her Middle school and H.S.

Both were broken bones in her feet.

One she was stepped on with a cleat

and the other she just landed wrong on it.

She lost two seasons of playing soccer

but when she did – was recruited by two different colleges.

Today she walks the path to her future!

Due to the Pandemic – her H.S. soccer season was moved from the fall to the spring.

She is about to begin playing –

Her travel soccer was played although the number of games reduced.

She competed and will move onto the next level in the Fall.

Ella and Sarah – sisters.

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Crooked Hammock Brewery – Deb and girls.

We ventured out and drove to Barefoot Landing – to let Sarah shop!

That is what she wanted to do the most beside walking the beach.

Sarah – Debby – Ella discussing which shops to go to – just outside of the new Brewery – Crooked Hammock!
We had walked by here dozens of times – and were waiting for it to open up – at last – it was open!

But – we decided since it looked really busy on the inside and outside

We would pass on this trip and go to a place that was not really that busy!

So we walked around and came upon this alligator in the water – below us as we stood behind the railing.

This was my first time seeing one here.

There were signs for this and snakes –

And at first we did not think it real as it was very still until it moved!

Hoping when the little grand kids come – we can show them a “GATOR”!

Ella Debby Sarah

I actually like Barefoot Landing over Broadway on the Beach

which is in Myrtle Beach Proper.

We did do some shopping – well they did – I walked in – took a look around and went back outside to find a place to sit!

Papa – checking out the “BEER GARDEN” notice all the
GARDEN TOOLS” hanging on the wall!

Sarah loved it here – her place to be – store to store!

Papa’s World – Bode – will you walk with me? Twins – Blue glasses and desks.

He quietly came down the carpeted stairs –

and walked softly over to me where I was writing my blog.

Bode – six years old – our only boy – five grand daughters!

“How many sleeps are left Papa – before you go away”? he asked.

You see – every morning when we stay with them – before 6 am. down he comes.

“Will you walk to the bus stop with me Papa”?

He started a week ago going to actual school twice a week.

Three days at home virtual learning!

Bode – walking to the bus stop with Papa – MorMor and Daddy!

Two sleeps I answered and yes I will walk with you!

” I LOVE YOU PAPA”!

The twins – Cassidy and Taylor – have been in virtual learning the entire time

Making the choice not to go back to school –

They are thriving and doing really well!

Cassidy and Taylor – twins – ten years old – at Taylor’s desk in the basement near our room.

They both are in the basement only in different rooms –

they help each other out – Cassidy will always go to Taylor if she does not understand!

I had no idea what the glasses were for – but was told –

“They are BLUE GLASSES Papa – to protect your eyes from the screen on the chrome book”!

WOW – they look so old in them!

Bode – leading the way to the bus stop – love his back pack!

He told us he liked school – does not know how many are in his class –

Does not know how many boys or how many girls are in his class!

” But Papa , I am the fastest one in my class”!

BODE RUNNING TO THE BUS STOP – I UNDERSTAND WHY HE IS THE FASTEST!

These three are anything but this!

They love playing games – competitive games!

The youngest is into dance – loves the arts – and wants to go to NYC!

I will sit that one out – her mother can take my place!

as a Freshman she played in 13 games at the University of Lynchburg – Va.

And has maintained a GPA – over a 3.85!

Ella will finish her H.S. soccer this Spring –

She had two colleges to pick from and choose Randolpf College in Lynchburg Va.

Just across town from her sister and they will compete against one another!

Maddy Ella Sherry Sarah

Sarah is all about fashion – no interest in soccer at all!

Although when little – she played as well as her older sisters!

She loves to dance in competitions when younger and shows.

Her goal is one day to create fashions and design – produce movies – acting!

All three are like this – beautiful on the inside – smiling on the outside – living life to the good.

Papa’s World – a little lunch-dinner with grand kids at Local on the water!

We all were hungry!

So – where do you go during a pandemic – social distancing?

We had been hiking the trails of Vereen Memorial Gardens!

The little ones had some snacks but it was not enough.

So – we decided to take them to “LOCAL ON THE WATER”!

Cassidy Taylor Bode and Mormor in the background!

There was one other couple there – outside – so we had the entire place to ourselves!

The kids loved it – swinging – sand pit – corn hole – and watching the boats

go up and down the ICW!

Cassidy – Bode – two peas in a pod!

Here came a tugboat – leading a flotilla of telephone poles!

This caught the eyes of all three!

There were three tug boats with all these poles in the water between them!

One after another they passed – the poles had cables attached –

the lead tug guided them – the middle tug kept the front and rear poles in a line!

The last and third tug boat!

The third tug brought up the rear – all in all it stretched the length of at least a football field!

We were all just watching it pass by!

We have been here before – at least three times!

And have found that during the afternoon –

hardly anyone is here – making social distancing perfect!

Bode and Cassidy!

Bode – walking into the Heritage Reserve – Cherry Grove – S.C.

The little guy learned that not hiking is in the mountains like he thought!

Crossing streams or climbing rocks – that is all he had ever done on a hike

Showing him nature – the marsh – water – sand – scrub trees –

He learned that there is more to this Earth – hoping to bring him back

in warm weather as we were told you could see “GATORS” then!

Taylor walking the path through the trees!
Taylor Cassidy Tammy Sherry ( MorMor) making their way into the preserve!

They were excited – walking into the trees on the sand path –

looking for birds – snakes – spiders

hearing the sounds and the marsh views!

FAMILY – MORMOR – MEMORIES!

Papa’s World – a walk along a deserted beach with grand kids!

Often times you look on the other side of the fence – and then there comes a time you get a chance to walk at a place that would look the same 300 years ago! Here is that place at the far end of Cherry Grove – S.C. where no houses are built – no piers or docks – just sand – ocean and trees and shrubs – a deserted beach!
This I think is what the coast line looked like long before the settlers came here. No buildings – just raw nature – surf – and sand!
First – you have to find the path through the trees and shrubs to get to the beach!
Finding a very large tree washed upon shore – perhaps 60 feet long!
Sherry Tammy Cassidy Bode Taylor

Walking along the surf – no one in sight – imagining that this is how nature looked centuries ago!

And then we turn around and in the distance the pier – broken from the last major storm! Mother and daughters – solitude – listening to the surf – and time to turn around – head back to the houses.
In the background – the end of the buildings – the broken pier and a deserted beach – and looking ahead into nature what it looked like all those years ago. Tammy – Cassidy – Sherry (MorMor) Bode Taylor

This is a place where the past meets the future –

and we had the pleasure to bring the family

to see – hear and experience it!

Walking back to the future – Bode and MorMor!
Walking to the past from the future!

Papa’s World – crafting with MORMOR!

MORMOR – Swedish for MOTHERS-MOTHER – that has become her name for the three little ones!

Sherry has introduced crafts to all the grand kids –

and to this day – the three older ones still do crafts!

Taylor Bode Cassidy 10 6 10 years old.

All you have to do is say craft and the go right to the table – no fuss!

Busy once again – crafting – she teaches them and now Cassidy helps the other two. She is the one who texts – calls or zooms her MORMOR every day!
Cassidy – who can do any craft by herself – and often sets by herself with her IPAD – listening to instructions and creates pictures and drawings that are much larger than what she sees on the IPAD – drawing freestyle!

The older ones have that same talent – Ella has won awards for her creations.

Taylor – whom loves her alone time – building farms – houses – horses out of LEGO’S!
Bode -the one who is hard to slow down – always on the move – loves his craft time with MORMOR!

She teaches them – one at a time – not only crafts – but life itself!

Here they are after creating their make a shell wish – and MorMor helping to hang those wishes!

Papa’s World – Papa – when are we going on a hike? PAPA? PAPA?

Our young grandson – five granddaughters and then Bode!

From the very moment they pulled in – he asked that question –

PAPA – CAN WE GO ON YOUR HIKE?

To him – a hike is like back home – rocks – hills forest – streams!

I tried to explain to him it is different here –

But PAPA – That is not a hike – we have to go to the mountains!

Bode – entering the forest for our hike – along the ICW and the marsh land – no gators – at least we saw none!
“FOLLOW ME GUYS”!

He is a leader – and always out in front!

This is him to a tee – always staying ahead of the game – his own mind.

We walked a good mile and one half through the woods –

although he was out in front of me or alongside of me –

he never sought to run off –

staying close to me!

There were many intersections going in different directions – which way do we go PAPA he would ask – I had a map so I could tell him – he always listened to what I would say!
The twins – Taylor and Cassidy stayed close to their MORMOR ( Sherry)

We spent the better part of a hour walking the marsh and the woods

I want to come back here in the Summer so we can see more wild life!

Papa’s World – find a seashell – write a name and date – and then make a wish!

There is a place – next to the ICW – in Vereen Memorial Park – where you find a shell – date it and your name – hang it from a tree – and then make a wish – hundreds of the hang and this one is from our Taylor!
At ten years old – she already is five foot tall – she will someday be taller I think than her MorMor( Sherry) who is 5′ 9″ must be the Swede coming through!
I am little – some day I will be bigger – so she says – but every day she either calls or texts her MorMor ( Sherry ) and that sweet little soft voice – “I love you MorMor ” here she hangs her wish!
Cassidy showing her shell for a wish! I think she looks just like Taylor in this picture!
Bode – hanging his seashell wish – the only boy out of six grand children!
I have said – Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins – they are two peas in a pod!
Bode Taylor Cassidy

They came to spend a long weekend with us –

seeing where we live and where we are building our new home!

They were so excited – and hiking was on our things to do!

We had told them there was a place to make a wish and hang the shells from a tree!

But first you must search for the right shell

then date it and put your name on it!

MorMor – leading Taylor – Cassidy and Bode on a search for their own perfect sea shell!

We had driven past this park dozens of times as we went to golf and also after we bought our lot!

Always saying – we need to stop and check it out –

might be a good place to bring the grand kids as they all

like to hike and explore!

Papa Cassidy Taylor and Bode

So – we did and then when they came down – we went for a hike –

out through the marsh – into the trees – a sand trail – pathway –

I had a map as it splits off several times!

I guess in the warmer months you will see gators in the marsh!

The little ones are always curious – exploring – seeing and asking questions!

But – they also stay close – ever watchful –

and tend to hang with MorMor!

Sherry – ( MorMor) Swede for Mother’s Mother – loves to lead and show them – explain what everything is!
They also listen to her!

The first thing they wanted to do was walk the beach!

Now – wouldn’t you know it that it got cold and windy the day they arrived!

It was so warm the day before people were sitting on the beach and wading in the water!

So we pressed on and walked down and onto the beach.

The wind was the culprit – making it very cold.

Even Bode has enough even though he had no shoes on!

Cassidy Taylor Bode after he put his shoes back on!

We walked to the next beach entrance and exited!

It was a very short walk – but they got to see just how close we are!

Tammy said the kids were great – she had told them she would not stop and she didn’t making the seven hour drive in a little over six hours and they never complained!

Papa’s World – BODE – only grandson – birthday – age 6!

Cassidy BODE Taylor

Our daughters gave us five grand daughters –

family dinners were 8 females – 3 males!

And then – along came BODE!

The first grandson in our little family!

BODE

Even when he was too little to walk

I would push him in the stroller

and one time we passed a open garage door

and he became very excited – pointing to a car parked there.

It was a antique Corvette!

He is all boy – trucks – bikes – helmets and no shoes!

Turning six years old – Bode – as he always is – no shoes!

Off he goes outside – no snow – no ice and no shoes!

Riding his bike – playing baseball – chasing his sisters or running away !

He has this thing of bare feet!

Every morning as I drank my cup of coffee –

when we stayed with them before we moved South

Down the stairs he would come

early – 6:00 am.

And “Hello Papa” !

And climb up into my lap as I wrote my blogs!

Mommy – and Bode – mother and son

First boy in the little family.

He and Cassidy are two peas in the pod!

Yet – he loves Taylor – calling her name.

Cassidy is the protective one – always watching over him.

All three together excited – I can not tell who is saying what

if I am not in the same room with them.

I am hoping to have them here – on the beach – in the sand – running – laughing!
Daddy and Bode – going golfing!

For his Christmas – we gave to him – his first little set of golf clubs

a bag – balls and tees.

There is a video of him his daddy took

Hat on backward – ball on a tee in the fairway

stepping up – the ball falls off the tee – he picks it up

places it back and steps up to the ball

His stance perfect and all of a sudden he swings

You hear the club hit the ball – and his daddy laugh

It leaves the tee and sails down the fairway!

“WAY TO GO BODE” his daddy says!

I think we have a soccer player and a golfer!

I am not too old to enjoy what the years will bring!

First grandson – all boy – yet sentimental – caring for his sisters.

One day he will be the one protecting them!

Happy birthday little one – BODE – six years old – first grandson!

Papa’s World – hiking the trail with the Myers family – grand daughters!

Debby Sarah Sherry Maddy Papa Mike Ella

I love this picture – I told Sherry we need to get it blown up and framed!

And – it all happened in a space of two or thee minutes!

Maddy took her phone – while we all just sort of found a place –

put it up and braced it on a tree limb –

set the timer for 6 seconds and “BOOM”

there it was!

We went back to the new trail – but this time – the whole family went!

This family hikes all the time – that is their form of family time together!

Mike will take the older two – Maddy and Ella – overnight hiking!

He would take Sarah – but she is into more like N.Y.City hiking!

Sarah – but she is the adventure type – always climbing – swinging from vines – exploring woods and meadows.

She is the one I think really likes it but has aspirations of one day dancing – acting – fashion –

But once you do get her out there – no boundry is off limits – being the free spirit she is!

Ella – come on – follow me!
Ella is 5 ‘ 8 1/2 ” Sarah who just turned 14 – I think will be taller – both taking after their grand mother Sherry – who is 5’ 9″

We made it a family day hiking – where Debby – Sherry and I had gone the day before!

A new trail within the city limits of Winchester Va.

When it is completed – with all the side trails and loops

you pretty much can get a easy five miles in!

YEP! there are also pastures and cows!
Walking the trail – Ella Maddy Sarah Mike Papa the trail is made of crushed limestone the whole way! Easy to walk on and not trip!

This day was somewhat cool but warm in the Sun!

And we made a day of it as long as we could.

Many volunteers keep this project going

helping to clear out brush

and maintaining the cut area’s!

There is a farm silo – which you can walk into – and look up and see this. A hand crank on the wall – makes these turn in opposite directions – providing the look of birds soaring in the clouds!

Sherry – who stands 5′ 9″ with our three oldest grand daughters!

Now – Maddy is 5 ‘ 6 ” Ella is pretty close to Sherry and Sarah is 5’ 6 or 7″

Sarah has started to get taller like Ella did – and I think will be taller than Sherry!

Plus – one of the twins – Taylor – well she is 10 and comes up to just under Sherry’s chin!

Must be the SWEDISH heritage coming out!

Debby – our oldest daughter – and her three girls

They all went into town to get their ears pierced again!

All except Debby!

Every time she is with them – laughter prevails!

She showed them how when you put our car on cruise control

The radar activates – and the car will almost steer itself!

She took her hands off and it went around two slight bends in the road

They were amazed and then all burst out laughing

as a message came across the screen in the car

“PUT YOUR HANDS BACK ON THE STEERING WHEEL”!

About to get their ears pierced!

A trip with grandma – “ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS GRANDMA – IS YOU !” says Sarah!

Well maybe a few other things! LOL

Our plan is to spend three days with them – and then head back to Tammy’s

as they have school and jobs.

Then we will all spend Christmas day together at Tammy’s

at least that is the plan now and could change during these trying times.

Ella and Maddy – Ella may be playing soccer against her next year in college! She has to select between two colleges.

Grandma and Grand Daughters – LIFE IS GOOD!

AT OLD TOWN – WINCHESTER VA.

Papa’s World – Once in a BLUE MOON!

Our little grand daughter Cassidy

texted a message-

” I think it is so COOL that you and Papa are going to the beach –

to take pictures of the full MOON”!

Sherry said did you forget you told her that?

Well – I did – and she did not forget it!

So – off we went in the dark – into the car –

and drove the half mile to the beach entrance!

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

We made our way along the walk way to the sand

and I captured the moon

on a very dark night

I could hardly see the other people who

had made their way to the beach

to do the same thing!

The only light we had was the street light!

We could hear the surf but could not really see it!

Then the full moon lit up the ocean

and the crashing waves on the sandy beach!

This once in your life event of a blue moon on the beach

was worth the effort to bundle up

and hit the beach in the dark.

My little grand daughter –

“THAT IS COOL”!

And then it was back home

to go out on the Lanai

and snap a picture of the Full Blue Moon

coming up over the small lake of Ocean Keyes!

Paps’s World – missing the little ones!

We have been gone from their home two weeks.

Yet – almost every day – one of the little ones

will face time or call.

Cassidy loves her MORMOR

she is the one who I think misses us the most.

She would come down those stairs to say good night

give hugs and this would happen several times!

She was always asking when we would come back.

Bode – so much like Cassidy but all boy!

Every morning without fail

from 6 to 6:15 AM.

Down those stairs he would come or if I were on the front porch

climb up onto my lap.

” I LOVE YOU PAPA”!

As simple as that!

Taylor or “T” as I call her

so mature – so kind – who only wants to ride horses!

She takes lessons once a week –

She knows how to groom them and saddle them

how to clean their hooves.

“T” who just wants her ALONE time-

in her room reading or playing with her horses and lego’s!

WHEN THEY WERE YOUNGER!

We spent almost three months with them

One time they spent a year with us.

Sherry is their “MORMOR”

Swedish for MOTHER’S MOTHER!

That is all they have ever called her.

Bode at five is now golfing with his daddy!
“T” is so fast growing up!
Cassidy is the one who teaches the others crafts – just as her MORMOR teaches others!
Cassidy is her MORMOR’S SHADOW!

Yes – missing the three little ones

The older three are growing up

one in college – one about to graduate

and one who wants to be with grandma!

The three little ones – who are young enough

to see we are now at a distance and call all the time.

And then there is Tammy – their mother

who in all her life has never lived more that two hours away

This is where the little ones get it from

MORMOR – MOTHERS MOTHER

Tammy – Sherry’s daughter

The family lives on –

“WE LOVE YOU MORMOR”

Yes LITTLE ones – she knows with tears of joy!

Papa’s World – a little place to eat on the river!

MERROIR

Not sure just how you say this name –

I think it is French!

And it sits on what I think is still the Rappahannock River

or one of the many inland bays of the Chesapeake Bay.

My son in law had eaten here before.

But – where ever it is – I want to go back

As I had the best AHI TUNA I have ever eaten!

AHI TUNA

It must of been the seasoning – and it was done just right!

We had gone off the resort of The Tides –

because the day we arrived – their dining room was closed.

And Marcus and Tammy had been here before.

Not many people at all – we almost had the whole outside to ourselves!

And you could not sit inside.

SHRIMP & LOBSTER ROLL!

The little ones all had the shrimp and lobster roll along with Sherry.

She said it was very good!

Tammy and Marcus had the oysters as a appetizer

Now – I have never had a feeling to eat oysters

and I think that goes way back to my father

every Friday night – he had oyster soup!

And it just did not look good to me!

Bode almost made it

Bode wanted to try one –

but at the last moment gave it up to Taylor

and she ate it and gave it a THUMBS UP!

The view from our table

I think there were three other people there

but they also were doing a good take out business.

You could walk over and look into the kitchen from three sides.

And two ladies were busy cooking in there!

I recommend this place!

Sherry taking the three little ones to look into the bay where they saw a dolphin up close!
On the other side was a marina with tons of docked boats
Bode Taylor Cassidy

I would imagine this being a very busy place

if it were not for the pandemic

Marcus and Tammy said when they were there last year

it was packed.

I hope it stays – I most likely will never get back there

BUT MERRIOR on the bay – remember that

and if you have a chance – stop in –

The pan seared AHI TUNA was out of this world!

And the sunsets weren’t bad either!

Papa’s World – cruising the Rappahannock – family.

While staying at The Tides Inn on the Rappahannock river

For the birthday’s of Tammy – Cassidy and Taylor

We decided to rent a electric boat

called the Duffy 18.

We were told where we could or could not go –

Stay in the large bays and not the main river!

The combined bays are really large and provide a lot of scenery.

The electric boat was quiet – large and comfortable

affording all of us room to sit

a table and places to put our numerous coolers and snacks.

We had the boat reserved for three hours

and we used every bit of that time

we had a roof to keep the hot sun off

and all the plastic sides were lifted up

so we had a breeze!

My son in law Marcus was the captain

but he allowed each of the three kids turns at driving!

I just relaxed and enjoyed the cruise as they all drove.

Sometimes we had a breeze

out in the open bay –

but once we went up the coves

it disappeared!

OSPREY NESTS WERE EVERYWHERE!
Everyone moved around to different seating

At one point we came across a couple dolphins

and we would tag along with them.

Here the twins are on the lookout for them.

This went on for about a half hour and made for a exciting time!

Cruising the RAPPAHANNOCK BAYS with a electric Duffy boat!

A Certified Health Coach – A Lab Tech – Payroll – Traffic –

Logistics – Supervisor – Manager – and now a Senior Sales Crodinator

for the Juice Plus Company – HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERRY!

The many professions she has held in all these years.

The respect of her peers – the leadership – she is the one

they all came to for advice – skill and being capable

to accomplish whatever she set out to do.

Mother – grandmother and MORMOR

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Daughters Debby & Tammy

The grand children adore her

The daughters respect and follow her.

To these three – the youngest – it is MORMOR!

Bode – Taylor ( who I think will be taller than her) & Cassidy

Her grandmother immigrated from Sweden –

The proud heritage passed down through her mother

herself and her daughters to the grand kids.

They all seem to have inherited being tall like her

5′ 9″ to be exact.

Sarah – Debby – Sherry – Maddy & Ella

So far Ella has come the closest at 5′ 8 1/2 “

But I see Sarah and Taylor catching her and beyond.

She is my soulmate – my mentor and the reason I live today.

We have been married 38 years.

Today is her birthday –

and we have started a brand new adventure together

We have bought and sold FIVE homes together

And now we are free of ownership

Free to travel where we want

and no worries of a house – taxes or HOA!

So – today – to you my love – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The road awaits us – another dream begins –

and one more birthday is here

but you continue to amaze me – you are just as beautiful

as the day we were married.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERRY!

LOVE PAPA!

Welcome to Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
