time travel tuesday ~ to grandmother’s house we go!

Travel back to grandmother’s (or aunt… or ?) house.

What are the smells you remember walking in when you were young?

What are things you remember seeing everytime you were there?

Any special things you always did with or at grandmother’s house?

I remember going to my grandma’s house on Sundays. Not every Sunday because it was about a 90 minute drive… but a lot of Sundays. We would spend the night sometimes on the weekend too. I remember tons of cousins to play with! I remember my grandpa always had juicy fruit gum in his pocket to give out and grandma always had vanilla sandwich cookies and coke. It tasted better at her house as did everything. She could even make simple things taste good! I remember there was always lots of food and running in and out playing and playing!

    What a sweet post! It brought back lots of memories for me! 🙂

    I’d love to do this one, but I don’t have time today! But hey, I’ve Time Traveled on Thursday before, so maybe I’ll just have to do that again! 😉

    What a fun post. I hope my grandkids think everything taste better at Grandma’s. (Both my grandma’s were deceased when I was born, but I love to hear my kids talk about their grandma–she is so wonderful.)

  4. This is a great TTT idea. I loved the chance to think about both the women I’m blessed to have as grandmothers. My only regret is that I don’t think I can paint a picture of how much they mean to me in one post! Thanks Annie!

    I enjoyed this one, too. My father’s mother was one of my favorite people. And somehow it is true, things always did taste better at Grandma’s!

    One of my gma’s lived in CA. The other was…well, not really the cookie baking type. Still, when they both died last year, it left a big hole in my life! Family is family!

    I love that you remember the juicy fruit! For me it is root beer! I just wanted to say thanks for TTT. It helps me with my whole mission of why I blog in the first place. To write down stuff about my life and my family, so that those to come can have access to those stories and memories. When I started this one about Grandmother’s house, I was amazed at all the little things I remembered.
    Thanks!

    Your memories of your grandparents are great. I remember that my grandma always carried Hershey’s miniatures in her purse.
