Vacation 2010 the 6th day (again posting about yesterday-thurs- the 12th)

Everyone up early to go watch gabby at the middle school volleyball try outs. Won't know if she makes the team untill next week ~ got my fingers crossed. She sure doesn't like all the picture taking.

From the school,went to the salon to get our hair done~yep, even me! Got the split ends removed, and hair thinned out. Feels so much better and lots lighter.

Gab got her's to look like "Bella" of "twilight" (check out the pictures in the FB hair cut album) with the purple high light.

Jaz got a lot cut off with a streak of purple. Jamie got a trim.

Layer in the afternoon, went to the elementary school which my youngest grand will be starting kindergarten (a 5 year old rite of passage!) Also ran into a old childhood friend of jamie's- "Faye" and her family.

Home for dinner and fell asleep in front of tv!

Vacation 2010 5th day Wed- 11th (yesterday)

Again, to tired to post last night~so here is yesterday's happenings

Man these all day shopping trips really tires a person out. I always like the window shopping at a few stores ~but almost every store!

Was something to watch my 12 year old granddaughter do her own bargain hunting and interacting with the sales people~and they weren't even looking over @ momma anytime during the sale! This girl knows just what she is looking for and wants. Even the youngest is a pro~will carry ALL her purchases all by her self. Would always pipe up with a "NOPE" when grandma offered to carry some of her bags!

Did do some bargain shopping at the local GoodWill down on August Rd and had lunch at "Sarah's Kitchen" this pace has good home made food~I and lots of other taxi drivers eat there. (I did a lot when driving a cab years ago)

Then spent most of the day at Heywood Mall looking around, never did make it to CherryDale Mall, but had fun doing a all girl's day!

My favorite store had to be the "Build A Bear" where both girls got new bears.

All in all we had a good day! Now this morning is off to watch oldest grand try out for school volley ball team

Vacation 2010 4th Day (YESTERDAY-the 10/Tues) 7am

Was really worn out yesterday, never got to post the day's activities , but did get loads of photos up on my FB page. UNFORTUALY was having trouble with the BlackBerry and couldn't get connected to FB or the blog (untill now~just got back up and running.)

Lets see, yesterday was one long day with the two granddaughters. Son in law Mike drove the three of us girls to downtown Greenville, dropping us off at the Children's Museum Only spent afew hours there before heading out to downtown (check the middle photo~we crossed that bridge! )

Falls Park

Falls Park on the Reedy River offers an oasis in the heart of downtown Greenville's historic West End. The park features a one-of-a-kind curved suspension walking bridge, scenic overlooks, outdoor amphitheaters, world-class works of public art, picnic areas, nature trails, garden areas, and of course, the beautiful Reedy River and its impressive series of waterfalls. It is a beloved destination to all, especially on sunny days, and features numerous events and festivals throughout the year.

After crossing the river bridge and playing in the water, went to do some mini golf. Did start raining so stayed till Jamie and Mike picked us up for dinner and the Drive Game celebrating Greenville's 179th Birthday.

Still have lots more photos on the camera....yep, grandma brought a backup! Can't get those up on FB untill I get back home to fla.

Think we are going shopping ~ a girl's day out....so will see you later!
