Spring Break Blue

We had a super fun Spring Break trip.  My daughter, granddaughters and I drove to Buena Vista Colorado and spent some time with my Son and family.

Here we are just getting started.

The weather was really exceptional for Colorado this March, it can be the snowiest month of the year.

Our grandchildren spent many hours jumping on the trampoline.

We took the cog train to Pikes Peak and there were so many pretty blues around.

I just love the blue trim on the depot.

Today I just back from our Spring Break trip to Colorado.  This week is the letter J and a big part of my grandchildren activity during the week was JUMPING.

My grandson has a trampoline in his backyard and it was used a lot. My granddaughter and I made a video of us on the trampoline. JUMPING ON A TRAMPOLINE.

Hope you enjoy us having fun.

Happy Pi Day

Visiting PINK SATURDAY today for Pi Day.

I heard this on the local news this morning and had to find something PINK so I could post about it!!

The first 5 digits of pi is: 3141592653--the next time it happens will be 3-14-2115.  So at 9:26 at the 53rd second  this morning it was officially was Pi Day.   I do not claim to know all the significance of Pi but WICKEPEDIA sure does. Check out all the information.

The US House of Representatives passed a non binding resolution recognizing 3-14 as National Pi Day a few years ago.

Quite a few people celebrate having pie, there were so many images on google today.

However this is the pie we had recently. One of my granddaughters LOVES the little apple pies at McDonald's  You can get two of these delicious little pies for $1.00.

We had a sleep-over and made a McDonald's run at night.

ABC WEDNESDAY stretches our minds and keeps us studying our world. We look for ways to share knowledge and what we find INTERESTING.

I saw this picture a few weeks ago and it really INSPIRES me. We go to so much work to get a tree to grow. We are so careful where we plant it- does it have the right sun or shade, is the soil just perfect. What about climate, will it thrive?

Looks to me that an IMPELLING force just willed this tree to survive in the worst conditions.
IMAGINE what we could do with that kind of IMPULSION.

Thanks go out to Roger and Mrs. Nesbitt for their work for us all.

Good Samaratin

We have arrived at the letter G this week in the ABC WEDNESDAY round.  My G word is Good Samaritan.

The Good Samaritan receives it's phrase from the story that Jesus told in the gospel about the stranger laying at the side of the rode beaten and robbed and left for dead. He was passed up by a Priest and a Levite before he was helped by a Samaritan. The Samaritans were despised by the Jews at the time and it took great courage for him to approach the stranger and to aid in his situation. I'm sure many know the parable how the Samaritan  took him to a town, paid for his treatment and came back to check on him thereafter.

I have thought about this often, how would I react to such a situation. Would I cross the highway to help a stranger? I pray I would.

I have passed this Good Samaritan Ranch many times traveling to the country to see relatives. It is situated in Southern Missouri and I have often seen boys working with the horses and working the ranch.

It is such a beautiful setting, large white fence bordering the entire property. I'm so thankful there are places like this for our troubled young boys.

My sister just returned from Africa, where her and her husband spent a month working with orphans and children in need.

What can you and I do today to be that "GOOD SAMARITAN"?

Our 10 year old granddaughter has the sweetest spirit.  She wanted her Nana and Papa to get a valentine from her.

She brought this over yesterday for us:

She is a big fan of the minions from Despicable Me.

I stopped by a "Smallcakes" today and bought my hubby a chocolate fudge cupcake!!


Hope everyone is able to be near their "valentines" today!!  Linking with the ever lovely Beverly @
