Sweet little boys, a basketball game and some sister time

Lat week one day I went to play
with two sweet boys.

Carson and Toby!

They took me to the basement where the toys are.

It was all in order when we went there
but wasn't long before 
toys were everywhere!

He demonstrated how it works then
he took my blood pressure.

Then they both gave me shots
and I let out a little yelp....

This cutie giggled ♥

We read a bunch of books
and played with trucks and boats and cars.

What a fun time I had with these two precious grandsons.
We will do it again. Yes we will!


On Sunday we went to see our granddaughter compete 
in a championship basketball game. 

Interesting that the game was held at the same sports complex 
that the Night to Shine prom was held two days before.
We had never been there before that
and now were there twice in as many days ☺

There's our girl!

They played hard!

 She's got the ball....

 She shoots!
Unfortunately this one wasn't a basket
but she did score others for her team.

You win some (they won lots)
You lose some.
This game was a loss.

Basketball has ended, soccer starts soon!
This girl likes to keep busy ☺


On Saturday morning two of my sisters and I met for breakfast.

Sister time is always good!!

I didn't take any pictures so I'm borrowing
this one that Jean posted on FB.

Mary Ellen, me, Jean

We met at a cute little place called
Brickhouse Cafe
in the town we grew up in
and where we moved from 5 (almost 6) years ago.
Manheim still holds a warm place in our hearts!

We ate, drank coffee, and did a whole lot of talking!

Jean had a few things to do before the long drive home
so she left to be on her way.

Mary Ellen and I went across the street to
Prussian Street Arcade.

It's a new boutique in a refurbished potato chip factory!

It's amazing!!

I loved it and surely will go again!

Ellen has an appointment tomorrow before 9
so I had better get some sleep!

Ha! We were both blogging at the same time! Wow, I wish I had had time to go with you to the Prussian Street Arcade! Another time!

What a great space Greta has in her basement for the boys to play!

I know you had fun with the little boys, and also with your sisters. I love places like the old potato chip factory - remade. Have a good Wednesday.

What fun you have been having. Grandkids and sisters... nothing is as good as family. That Persian Arcade looks like someplace I would like. I'll have to check it out.

Mary Ellen said...

So happy for the good events in your life, and glad I got to be a part of one of those times. Paityn sure is an athlete!

Looks like a great time with those little fellas. Grandchildren bless us daily. Looks like a fun b’ball game and time with Sisters is the best. Oh and shopping:). Enjoy your evening dear Doris. Hugs

Cute pics of the kids. My grands always love playing Dr too.
Sister days are so fun! Glad you got to enjoy time with them.

You did indeed have quality time with grandsons, Caron and Toby, and a medical checkup as well with no extra costs, Doris. yes we know the brickhouse cafe well but that former potato chip factory looks like a new place for us to explore on a future PA visit.
