Thursday 13-Gramma’s house

Here are 13 things that my younger cousins never experienced at Gramma’s and Grampa’s house after they moved to Florida.

    1. Rolling down the hill.
    2. The backyard that went on forever.
    3. Taking a nap in a basement bedroom and upon awaking, not knowing it’s it’s AM or PM.
    4. Begging an aunt or uncle (usually and aunt) to take us to the park down the street.
    5. Being old enough to finally go without an aunt.
    6. Spending the afternoon at the park playing nothing in particular with cousins.
    7. Lawn darts and horseshoes.
    8. Not wanting to go into the laundry room because it was scary.
    9. Visiting and wondering if the house was arranged the same or if there was a new room/wall somewhere.
    10. Playing hide and seek in the basement.
    11. Sliding in the basement hallway.
    12. Christmas gift exchanges.
    13. This wallpaper in the dining room

  1. Awwww. Those sound like good times. *smile* What did the wallpaper in the dining room look like? I’m curious.

  2. yep, just even a few years makes a big difference in our experiences. special times huh. before the internet also!

  3. Oh, it’s sad that life changes and good times become only memories. I just cleaned out my aunt’s house and I remember a lot that will not happen again.
