Feature Mom #4- Grandma Rose
Grandmas are one of the greatest things in the world – and I happen to have one of the best!
Grandma and Papa own a junk yard, which is one of her favorite places to be! She absolutely loves tearing small parts apart so that she can get the valuable metal inside. She also has a large garden, that she always seems to be weeding – but every year, she grows good sized veggies! Once year, she grew a Pumpkin that I believe weighed over 100 pounds.
I do have to say that Grandma has one of the best puzzle skills I have ever seen. She can put together any puzzle that you put in front of her. The hard ones may take a little bit longer, but she always gets them done.
Some of the best memories I have with my grandparents was while we were at the lake. We used to take yearly trips to Boysen Reservoir in Wyoming for my birthday. The whole family would join and they were usually about a week long. There was a ton of fishing, playing in the water, great food and so much laughter. Last year for the 4th of July, the entire family got together, and it was probably one of the best trips I have been on in a long time! We went on some adventures, did some good fishing, and always found ways to tease my Grandma. There are quite a few ornery people in the family, so it never fails that someone is getting scolded be her for playing mean, but hilarious, pranks on one another.
Ice fishing is also always a blast! One year, my sister and I asked my Grandma if she wanted a ride to shore on the sled behind the Four-Wheeler. For some odd reason, probably against her better judgement, she agreed, and we took her on quite the ride. Kim and I took her over every single hole that we could find with the biggest mounds around them. Needless to say, she looked like she was hanging on for dear life!
Grandma has been married for over 50 years, raised two amazing kids, was one of the best Grandma to my sister and I and is now a Great-Grandma - and absolutely loves it. She may spoil my nephew, Tryston, quite a bit but what else are Great-Grandma’s for?! My parents named me after my grandma, as her middle name is also “Marie”. I will always cherish my Grandma and look forward to making more memories together.
