Alaska Bound

Saw this pair of motorcycles on July 2 somewhere in Alabama.  Florida plates and you could tell they were packed to travel. I have often thought of this couple since then....wondering how their trip was and if they arrived safely.....wondered about all the sights and things they saw/did on their way.  Wonder what it would be like to be that free?  Don't suppose most of us will ever find that out.

I liked their little dog sitting behind the man!  what a trip!

More Catching Up

Emily earlier in the Summer...had out the totes of Happy Meal Barbies...would line them up and knock them down!

The twins had fun playing on the atv...no doubt imaging some fun adventures.

Finished my grapevine tree a week ago. not real happy with the top, but it'll be alright, at least for now.


More atv fun!  they got these paper bags out of their van and a couple of them went around collecting things from the yard....hickory nuts, seed pods, etc.  fun activity.

Random Pictures

Groundhog that terrorized our garden a good part of the Summer....even chewing up gourds and pumpkins.

I had a clock/radio thing that quit working last June and I opened it up so Tyler could see what all was in there....Ha! He had fun seeing the insides of it!

Ben thought it was amazing too!

Rush hour in Birmingham  late in June.....as bad as this was it got worse due to an accident was ahead of this.

Summer on the River


Every Summer there just seems to be never enough time to spend on the river with the Grandkids....this year seemed more that way than usual.  Seems like the Summer just slipped by without taking advantage of all it had to offer.  We will still go out some this Fall, but never as much as we think...our attention turns to other things and life just goes on.  Here is Emily on a sandbar upriver

Tyler got so much better at his swimming this year...they both did, but he really was improved.  Next year I will take them to swim lessons again.  That was so much fun last year and they'll learn even more.




We had fun with them!

Star of the Yard

The star of the yard last week and this week are the two Elderberry bushes we have.  Both volunteers of  course, but they have bloomed wonderfully this year.
