A Busy Week


I have been a bit down on my posting this week . . . it’s been a a busy week!

Last Sunday was our son Ryan’s 21st birthday, and we took him out to lunch after church to celebrate.

Wednesday was our son Robert’s 24th birthday. We also spent the day with Jeff’s dad who was in town for a visit. We cooked out burgers and hot dogs, went to the park in the afternoon, and then out to dinner to celebrate Robert’s birthday.

The next day (yesterday) was our 26th anniversary. Jeff and I spent the afternoon at the movies (Star Trek) and then went shopping in the historic downtown shops that we love, followed by dinner out at Chilli’s.

So, you see why I haven’t been posting very much! Actually a few times I sat in front of the computer, just staring as I couldn’t come up with anything to say – I guess my brain was occupied everywhere else! And I didn’t even think to take pictures other than a few at the park, such as the one you see at the top.

Today I will be making a quick run to the grocery store for ingredients for a meal for our friends at church who have a new baby son. After I deliver the meal this afternoon, we will all be relaxing in the pool for awhile – maybe I’ll find my brain again floating around in the water – if there’s not too much yelling and splashing that is!

I love Friday nights because I just prepare something easy for the kids (sometimes I call an FYO night and they “Fix Your Own”), and then Jeff cooks out steaks or chicken for the late night crew after the rest are tucked in bed. Jeff always gets to pick the movie on Fridays, which we watch while enjoying our meal.

I’ve just been summoned to view the latest critter finding in the pool – a baby turtle.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
