I need to post something!

For heaven's sake! I mean...I do HAVE a blog!! :-) I just haven't felt like blogging lately and then there are several things that I could blog about but for some reason feel a bit overwhelmed when thinking about blogging about them! Help. :-/
What is WRONG with me?!?!??!
We had a really great time with Daniel, Erin and little Jaylon this past weekend. We left Sunday morning at 8 o'clock and headed for Dayton. We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Columbus and it was delicious, as usual!
Here's Ed and Daniel playing their customary game of checkers! :-)

Oh and here is Jaylon enjoying HIS breakfast! :-)
And here is Erin and Jaylon enjoying the rocking chairs while the guys finish their game of checkers:

I found two lovely books in the "sale" corner of the gift shop! 70% off!!
They were "Blessings for Your Home".

I've already given one to a dear friend as a gift but I think I'm going to keep the other one for ME! :-)
And what a surprise we had at the Air Force Museum....
Oh, and that is why we went to Dayton in the first tour the Air Force Museum!
My oldest brother, Bill and his family were there, too! Amazing!! We had a great time visiting and such. We all went to the cafe and got a snack and visited some more! We only live about 15 minutes from eachother but we don't see one another very often, so it was a wonderful surprise! We do talk every week, though, usually during America's Got Talent! We all eachother during the show to discuss the different acts! :-) AND my twin brother, Johnny and I do the same! :-)

Anywayyyy.....I didn't get any good pictures inside the museum because it was so dark and I didn't know how to adjust my camera for the lighting. :-/

Sunday evening, we ate at one of the most unique restaurants I've ever been to! Quaker Steak and Lube! It is a take off of Quaker State Oil and Gas Stations. It is so neat!

AND the food was delicious! I had the most delicious fish sandwich I've ever had! They have a restaurant near Polaris in North Columbus and hopefully we can go there sometime...soon!
On our way home Monday, we went to Jeffersonville Outlet Mall and shopped for awhile! It wasn't too crowded when we first arrived, which was before noon, but by the time we left it was teaming with people! I was glad to get out of there! :-0
I'm not one who likes to shop unless I have to but we knew the kids wanted to stop by the mall while we were in the area, so I did take advantage of the opportunity and purchased a few things while Ed relaxed on one of the benches with a good book, watching the crowds go by. By the time we left, I was worn out! Shopping does that to me! :-)
Daniel and Erin got a new car last week (2006 Chevy Impala)and Ed and I rode in the back seat wtih Jaylon! He acted like he was happy to have the company! You know how we grandparents are! We can be so entertaining! :-) It was nice to "ride" along for a change and especially so because of little Jaylon being back there with us!


Today I am endeavoring to freeze the better part of 20 lbs. of potatoes that were given to me because I don't want them to go to waste! It is quite a bit of work but will be worth the effort, I'm sure!
Hope you are having a great day and enjoying beautiful weather, wherever you are! It is a gorgeous early fall day here in SE Ohio! :-)

I love D. Morgan -- I wonder if our Cracker Barrel has that book. I received a gift card there for my birthday -- I should go check!

Jaylon is so cute.

yes you should go check Barbara, because I was just at Cracker Barrel about an hour ago and they still had some at 70% off!!
And thank you!! :-)
