Julia and Adelynn behind the Saddle Ridge Ranch sign...They love to help me make fruit smoothies...and sandwiches.

Last week we were blessed to have two of our youngest granddaughters with us. They spent the week going to Vacation Bible School at our oldest daughter's church. It was a cowboy theme and on the last day they got to ride horses.

Several days we also had our oldest grandaughter Bailey here too, as she was working in VBS, and likes to spend time with her cousins.

We took them out to lunch or dinner a lot...but I did cook a lot too. We went to the movies twice, and took them swimming several times. And then mid week we also had one of our grandsons, Caleb here too, and he also helped at VBS. He gave us a scare of Friday when a horse stepped on his foot and broke his little toe and bruised his foot. He is doing ok now though. (:>)

Sunday they did the VBS program and gave out some awards, and they showed us a video of everything that went on all week...and also told us of the 26 kids that accepted Jesus into their hearts during the week. Our granddaughters were among that group, and we were so excited to find that out!

What a joy to see Christ at work, drawing children to Himself. We are so thankful for VBS and for all of the workers who played a part in their professions of faith.

The weather has been hot and humid, so they really enjoyed the time they spent in the pool and also in the cool movie theater. A couple of times they even laid down and rested and watched TV.

But the girls did have to suffer through the heat as they played softball two evenings. But they did a good job none the less. And we enjoyed watching them play. Ironically, the name of their team is..."HEAT".

I am posting some pictures of our week with the kids. This post will help us remember the fun times we had with them. They are really growing up and before we know it they will be too old to go to VBS. But hopefully they will still like to come and stay at Grandma's.

Since we were making memories last week, I am using this post for my Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane today. If you would like to join in the fun with your special memories just click the button and link up with Jenilee. She will tell you how to do it.

How nice you got to spend time w/ your Grandchildren. I remember staying w/ my Grandparents and going to Bible school. I loved staying with them anyway. I remember when I used to wish Bible school would last all summer. It was always so much fun. We had VBS here last week and my crew just loved it. It's always nice to see kids all get together in the summer to worship the Lord.

Thanx for sharing this and the pictures were great !!!

Our VBS was just a couple wks ago. Anthony helped out with the games. I went one day and then stayed home. The heat and humidity was a little too much for me on top of chasing Kyndra around!

Our VBS just finished tonite.
We celebrated with homemade banana pudding and cookies.

What a fun (and busy) week! Looks like the girls had a great time. I pray they will find a church to get involved in to keep that fire alive! :)

Poor Caleb - accident prone huh?

Great memories and photos! We loved Vacation Bible school and then our children loved being the Camp Counselors during Children's Church Camp. (Our "baby" boy, said after his first time as a camp counselor..."Whew! Now, I understand how you and dad feels when you had to correct us...tough love, huh?" He has in his heart to open or help run an orphanage in Africa one day.

Blessings & Aloha!
Hope you get a chance to come by my place...& if you do please, leave a comment so that I know that you were there :o) Oh...and you do not look tired :o) My hubby and I can't wait to be grandparents!
