Taking a day trip to the park ................

Today hunny bunny,granddaughter and I took a little road trip.We went to Rock Island State Park near Doyle , Tn. This is about an hour from my house.We had such a good time.When we got there we found a nice picnic table, spread our tablecloth and fixed us a big ole bologna, cheese,onion and tomatoe sandwich.Yum-o-o-o ! Also had some Funyuns to go with it.It was such a beautiful day, the temperature was just right.We met 2 other people taking photographs also.It was so good and clear today.My g.daughter loves to snap pics,she took all of the pics you see here. Her name is Annisa and she is 15 years old.She is like my daughter, we helped our son raise her til she was almost 4yrs. old.
Hope ya'll enjoyed the trip, I know we sure did !

Morning, Theresa! Oh, my! What beautiful photos. Some look they they popped out of a fairy tale book! What a wonderful time you must have had. I just told my mother about the bologna sandwiches and she said, yum! I grew up eating those!!

Oh, you're a little techie, aren't you? I just backed up my blog so I would have it if my spiffing didn't work.

Thanks for the compliments on my new doo!
Be a sweetie,

Thank you so much for the trip! I would LOVE to travel, but we are just too far away.

You are great for sharing with us.

Theresa, Annisa (pretty name)is a photographer in the making. Terrific job with those pics. What a wonderful place to visit. I would love to go there too and have a picnic lunch with your same menu. Yum. I would add some sweet snack though, being the sweet lover that I am. I am going to check out that park on Google.

I know you must be very close to your sweet granddaughter because when you help raise a child that child is part of you. Even if she was only four when you stopped needing to care for her. Loved your post today my friend.

Love, Jeanne

Thanks for the visit.

Hi Theresa
Your pictures are beautiful. What a lovely picnic you went on. You saw so many beautiful spots they are just breathless. Wow.

The weather looks like it was cooperating so nicely too.

Thank you for sharing a lovely day.
Have a great one tomorrow too!

Tea Time With Melody said...

You have a great blog. I was captivated by your family history and hated to see "continued"...can't wait for the rest. I am fortunate that I can too pass on family history because someone took the time to track it down.

On a funny side note,your "Little Darlins Stopped By" caught my eye because my moms name is "Darlin".

Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

What a wonderful day you must have had and just beautiful photography. Your granddaughter has quite an ability to bring photos to life!
