For this week’s post I asked Go Grandma followers where they would take their littles if they could take them anywhere in the world. The response was wonderfully overwhelming! THANK YOU!! I loved hearing about all of the places that hold warm spots in the hearts of so many grandmas. Here are some of the places they’d like to go:
Paula J. (Canada) – New Zealand – The people were so loving and there’s so much to do outside every day. It’s beautiful and green.
Eva W. – Mustus Lake, Saskatchewan – it’s where my brother’s family and mine took our kids camping when they were younger
Frances J. – Prince Edward Island and the east coast of Canada
Sarah L., – I would take them to San Antonio, Texas. We went there every summer with my family.
Norma A., – On a picinic in Mowhawk Park, Brantford Ontario Canada.
Barbara B., – Upper Michigan
Sandra G., – Yellowstone
Lynnette J., – South Dakota Black Hills or Hawaii – loved it there.
Val O., (Minnesota) – Back to my childhood Island home of Whidbey, Washington to play in the minus tide pools and to dig in the mud for clams
Martha L., (Minnesota) – Disney Cruise
Kimberley F., (Canada) – Disneyworld
Mindi (Colorado) – Puerto Vallarta – to just chill! No one uses their phone there!!
Andrea G., (Minnesota) – On a cruise with the kids and grandkids.
From a trip to Hawaii to a picnic in a park – our Go Grandmas are adventurous but I’m guessing they just really want to show their littles the places they love and that bring back fond memories for them.
I got to do exactly that this weekend! As you know, I’ve been missing my littles like CRAZY!! since they moved away. I finally got an opportunity to go visit them and, given the location of their new home, we decided to make it a double adventure and go back to a few places that hold warm places in my heart.
We spent 10 years in the Southwestern Ontario, Canada area when our children were young and have so many fond memories. I wanted to share some of the memories with my two daughters-in-law who are always up for a Grandma Adventure (bless their hearts)!
Our first stop was a historical one in a little town outside of Rochester, New York. We visited some religiously significant sites for us and then topped the evening off with an amazing outdoor performance – Hill Cumorah Pageant. So many memories of taking our young boys to this area. It was pretty nice to be back!
In London we stayed with old friends who were always so good to our little family. It was nice to sit around, play games, and just visit. It was probably pretty boring for my daughters-in-law but they were good sports about it! They loved hearing stories about their husbands and seeing the places we lived and schools they went to.
Where would you take your littles on a Go Grandma Adventure?
