June ...

can you even believe it's June already
seems like it wasn't that long ago we were all putting up
snow pictures and talking about how cold it was!!
now here we are half way through the year
"they" say time goes by faster with each year you get older
and it's so true. Just seems to fly by!
here's my June chalkboard
and pictures from a visit from Declan........

the grandkids like to play in the phone booth that is in the office

First cookout .....

Even though Jacquelyn and Bucky have been in their
house for a number of years, they have never had a grill
Now they have a grill and invited us over for their very
first time of cooking on it.
We had steaks, pasta salad, grilled corn on the cob
and chocolate cake!!
and they did an awesome job. A very good friend of the
family also came over with her little boy Zane who is only
3 months younger than Declan so they had fun playing together.
We were setting up the corn hole game and here's Declan
helping to measure the distant of the boards....haha

Alyx and Zane

Declan and Zane had a good time playing at the new water table

Richmond Zoo ...

On May 23rd I went with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson
to the Richmond Zoo. Had never been before and was pleasantly surprised
at how nice it was.
Declan is starting to making a lot of animal sounds now so it was fun
to hear him imitate the monkeys. And any animal he saw that stood on 4 legs
he made the cow sound! Funny.......he was very fascinated by the
giraffe and maybe that's because it was the animal he
was able to get closet to.
here's some pictures from our day.......

No bloggin ...

I have not blogged since May 22nd
and I was reminded of this last week by one of my friends
thanks for the reminder Robin :)
then over the weekend I was reminded again
thanks Jacquelyn .... love you!
I haven't been taking many pictures and that's pretty much
the main reason I haven't blogged. I always feel like I have to
have a bunch of pictures to go with a post.
but I also like bullet point post so here you go .....
  • in late May I went with Jacquelyn, Bucky and Declan to the Richmond zoo. I'll do a post on that
  • Memorial weekend Johnny had to work so I just did a few things around the house, did some shopping.
  • the first week of June Johnny and I went down to the beach for 4 days. I took my camera and it never left the bag I put it in. I did take some cell phone pictures...ha! We had a wonderful time just relaxing, going out to eat, enjoying happy hours.
  • I finally went back to Jazzercise after a 2 month absence due to my foot surgery. I basically lost all of my stamina so now it's time to build that back up!
  • then Johnny ended up in the hospital. He had been having stomach pain and on Tuesday I took him to the ER per our doctors instructions. They admitted him and he had diverticulitis attack. He was able to come home on Thursday evening. Boy I sure do hate us being apart!! Thankful for the wonderful company I work for because each morning I went to the hospital and just worked from Johnny's hospital room while he watched TV and slept
  • and Sunday was his birthday and we went out to dinner
and pretty much that is it! Just staying busy........and I do have another project I'm working on. Redoing my sewing room so I'll post pictures on that whenever I get it finished.
