Pippa Lou ....

Our sweet Pippa Lou turned 6 years old 
on May 10th.

She is by far just one of the sweetest little dogs ever
and she gets bullied a lot!!
Bella earned the nickname of Bella the bully from
her picking on Pippa so much

And now Khaleesi picks on Pippa. She is def not 
the alpha dog in our pack

She loves to lay on the top of the patio wall and guard
our home. If anyone dares to walk past our yard she races
so fast to the fence and let's them know this is our yard!

Now if those same people were to actually come in to our yard,
she would take off for the deck and scratch to come in....haha

We took her to the vet the other day for her annual check up
She weighed in at 14.7 lbs and the vet said she
is in excellent health

here are all 3 dogs enjoying vanilla frozen 
yogurt from Sweet Frog....Pippa's birthday
treat that she shared

38 years ....

On Friday Johnny and I celebrated 38 years of marriage

and when I say we celebrated, I mean we sat on the patio

and drank a couple of beers, ordered some take out

and watched a movie!

haha.....well normally we do go out for a nice dinner

but I was having issues with my eye so we decided to stay in

We just have a good time doing nothing but hanging

out together. I guess that's why we are looking

forward to retirement so much.....just hanging out together!!

My sweet hubby sent me this beautiful basket of flowers.

they are in individual containers so after enjoying it indoors

for a little while, I'll plant them outside. I have some that came

back from last year's birthday basket. This is my second basket

this year, he gave me one for my birthday this year.

Irish Festival ...

well here I am....over a month ago with no post!

Back on March 25th we went to the Irish Festival here in Richmond
that is in the historical area ... Churchill

My sister lives down there so we go there before the festival for brunch
what fun
then walk just one block over to the festival

The weather was great this year so the crowds were big!

Declan had the perfect view on the shoulders of his Daddy

St Patrick's had a booth for alumni to sign up for updates
My husband went to school at St Patricks so he was excited
to see this....and yes, signed up for updates for events, etc. 

We walked down Taylors Hill to head down to Station 2
for an awesome hamburger

Jake and Kayce 
aka...bride and groom

my darling and I ....
