Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

27 Days of Fun



We have had a busy, busy month here at Mimi's Cottage. One of the
reasons we've been so busy is because
these two little sweetpeas came for a visit.

 The mister and I went to southern California to pick them up.
Then we put them in the backseat of my VW Beetle and
drove across the desert.

For twelve hours.  In the heat.
AC is the greatest invention ever!

We had a great time.

See, they're still smiling.




While they were here we went to the Tree House Children's Museum
in Ogden, Utah, where they milked a large plastic cow.


And they rode a bucking bronco with their cousin.


And made refreshments for all.


We loved the child size potties at the museum.


We spent many hours at the park.


And we got all dressed up and went to church.




We swam...

We made s'mores...

We slept in a tent...


Mommy flew out just in time for her birthday on July 3rd.



They went home last Thursday.

Now I have plenty of time to clean house, go to
the gym, or blog.


All is calm.


Mimi sure does miss them.

Aw, how cute they are. I know you had a wonderful time. I read the story of a man that was born at the turn of the century. He was in his 90's and was asked what he thought was the best modern invention of the century. He said he didn't have to think about it at all. It was definitely air conditioning!!

There is nothing that can compare with time spent having fun with grandchildren. It sure looks like you had a wild and wonderful time! Now you can take a well-deserved nap.
Happy Sunday Sue!
