Our 1st Visitors!

Grandmommy and Grandad were our first visitors.  We had so much fun having them here.  We explored Grass Valley, did some shopping, ate some yummy food and enjoyed each other.  Rhone warmed right up to them and with a little time so did Sylvie.  Rhone loved playing with Grandad and he did a craft with Grandmommy.  We had a fantastic time, but I did not do a great job at taking pictures.  I guess they will just have to come back.

This mine was so interesting and the grounds and original cottage for the owner are magnificent.  I learned a lot about hard rock mining too.  It's so fun to explore new places.  It's one of my favorite things about moving.

The house we were hoping to rent in Grass Valley was right next to this mine turned state park.  It was gorgeous.
For lunch we had a traditional Cornish Pastie (say Pass-tee).  The miners would take this meat and potato filled pastries into the mines and warm them with candles.  They were yummy and filling.

Rhone loved having Grandad read.
