New Website!

Not for me, for my parents! They have been working on it for a while and it is finally ready. It presents itself so much better. The cabins are now named for grandkids or family and it makes it much more personable. Be sure to check them out !

4th of July

We made last minute plans for the 4th with my brother's family. We didn't plan an elaborate menu but made what we wanted to eat and shared it. It turned out to be a wonderful mix of picnic food. Soooo good!

      The kids went swimming. The adults played pinochle while the kids all napped and badminton.

     We had popsicles for dessert. With the heat they were the perfect treat!

     The kids did some early evening sparklers and threw snappers in the driveway. After dark we did more sparklers and Howard set off small (legal*) fireworks he had bought. We then all trooped to the back yard to enjoy a neighbors fireworks display. *It is illegal in our state to set off fireworks that go off the ground.

      He celebrated his first 4th and seemed to have a good time. He ate, slept and played in the grass. :) He got his first tooth on Saturday which made him feel much better too!

Summer Blooms

My sister-in-law brought me this beautiful bouquet of flowers for the 4th. It's brightened every one of my days since then. I'm sure it wasn't a big deal to her but it is a very big deal to me. :)
