Lots of flat, open spaces!
Lindsay and I aren't big gardeners, though both of us wished Grandma could just impart some of her gardening genius DNA to us that my Dad also has.
We will see what comes up. She stood by and walked us through each step, and reassured us that the small seeds we were planting would indeed grow.
Isn't my sister beautiful?! Goodness I love her! While she was busy planting her corn,
each spaced out as Grandma had said,
and pushing the dirt back over it, packing it down ever so gently,
Grandma was busy making her cucumber hills. 7 to be exact.
By the way, I WAS working also, just took a couple little breaks to snap some photos :)
Our trip also included several games of scrabble. Grandma was happy to help us by looking at our letters and making much bigger, and more point-words than we could ever do on our own. :)
She wasn't very happy in game number 2 when I used up all my letters, getting the 50 point bonus. It must be all that practice playing wordswithfriends with my brother! :)
We had a great time with her. We made some of our favorite recipes, bought a lot of stuff at the Bird City second hand store, and had some great times together with Lindser.
What do you think of my $4 clearance sunglasses?
Tomorrow my Mom comes back to Kansas (!!!!!!!) and she even used hastags on facebook for the first time EVER! so proud of my hip Mom.
