Random Stuff

I haven’t been able to sit out on the porch much lately.  It’s been way too hot and we’ve also been way busy.

Today is Sunday and Katie played in her last tournament of the summer (thank goodness).  I am looking forward to returning to a normal routine.  And more time to spend sitting on the porch with a glass of sweet tea.

I did, however, get out on the porch for a few minutes the other morning before the scorching heat took over and I found this guy flitting around my phlox.

We got together the other day to celebrate my niece’s 17th birthday.

We cooked hot dogs on the grill, played frisbee & threw the football around and of course, it wouldn’t be a party if we didn’t dance on the Wii!

Look at my step-son, he’s totally doing the wrong move.

Again, completely clueless.

Why so serious?

There, that's better.

This is the card that Hannah made for Maryka and told her she would look like this when she got older.  Such a charming daughter I have.
