Blueberry Pancakes, Bike Riding, and a Backyard Barbecue

Collin’s Ten-Year-Old Trip
Day 4:  June 14, 2013
Granddad whipped up a big batch of pancakes--regular and blueberry--to start the morning off right.  Collin prefers the plain kind, with plenty of real maple syrup.   (Having Collin around is proving to be a great excuse for granddad to work lots of sweet treats into every day.)

 After that big breakfast, we needed to burn off some calories, so we hopped on our bicycles and took a ride around the island.  Collin’s goal was to ride five miles, but in true Glover fashion he exceeded his objective and rode seven full miles.  Collin says this is the furthest he has ever ridden in his life. 


After lunch, Gayl went shopping for supplies for our cook-out dinner tonight, and Granddad and Collin did errands, including purchasing ice cream and three different syrups for our cook-out dessert--make-your-own-sundaes (this was Granddad’s idea).

 When we all reunited back home, Collin helped Grandma Gayl make chocolate chip cookies (and sampled just one for quality assurance purposes), and he helped Granddad shuck our fresh Georgia sweet corn (a skill we figured he had practiced a lot  at home with his Papa’s fresh Indiana sweet corn).  

Here we are enjoying our back yard cook-out with our friends and their visiting grandchildren, Brandon and Rachel.


  1. You are doing an awesome job on the blog Collin and Gayl :) I want to go back in time so you can take me on a 10 year trip too!
