OH -- that's right -- GRANDCHILDREN. Of the 15 things, there are 6 CD books for me, two regular books (also for me), four picture books for Warren, a CD book for Lilly and two DVD movies that we all might enjoy when they spend the night.
(Some summer movie favorites: Fly Away Home; the Karate Kid; the Goonies; Pan; We Bought a Zoo; Dolphin Tale; Zathura; Because of Winn-Dixie)
In the interest of fairness -- I use all the branches of the Scott County Library system. I AM THEIR BIGGEST FAN. I have always loved to read, and I have developed some excellent reading habits which I want to pass on to my grandchildren. I consider it a gift I am giving them -- a love and comfort with books and libraries and the people who work there. When we stop into the little Princeton Library branch -- dear Dawn says, "Hello, Lilly!"...or "How are you today, Warren?"
|This year, my library card became a powerful partner for Grandma Camp!!|
|Of course, we went to the library every week, and did the normal things people do at libraries...|
|And we also checked out a lot of CD books, Lilly enjoys anything with a DOG in it!!|
|Our first outing was to the Figge Art Museum.|
|Warren does EVERYTHING Lilly does.|
|There was a special Wizard of Oz exhibit this summer.|
|This is Lilly, using our special Library Pass to go to the Botanical Center...|
|One of our BEST days of the summer was our trip to Niabi Zoo.|
|The pass was good for two adults and four children. (that's a $45 value)|
It was a GREAT day!!
|Sitting in the butterfly chairs, Lilly said, "I'm flying." Warren said, "you are not flying, Lilly." And she replied, "it's called using your imagination, buddy..."|
|It was sooo hot that day...but we did not miss a thing. Lilly loves animals so much, we had to meet every single resident.|
|And Warren was just happy to be with Lilly ...|
