Hello everyone! Whew, what a busy weekend we have had. Fun, but busy. Our son, Chuck, was married yesterday. I couldn’t wait to get home today and check out this picture. I have wanted a picture of all of us together for a long time. I guess it took a wedding to make it happen. And just look, we’re all dressed up too!
After the reception, we played in the hotel pool for a while before bed. We had to do something to let the kids wind down after being still for so long. Sam amazed us all by sitting still and quiet beside his Grace the whole time the ceremony was going on.
We stopped on the way home and enjoyed a picnic. The weather was cool but it was still nice.
Most things are green here now.
We have definitely been cool though. We have freeze warnings for tonight and tomorrow night. Hopefully, though, when this little cool spell is over things will warm up for a while.
Little boys wishing it was warm enough that they could get in that water. Well, I better get busy. I have lots to get done. I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

Chuck and his kids came over Saturday. He helped Hubby with some car maintenance. It was a fun day. He got here about 9:00 A.M. as he was wanting to eat breakfast with us. We had sausage and gravy, biscuits, fresh eggs, corn, canned apples and homemade waffles. We had a good day.
Grace was having trouble with her nose piece on her glasses so we made a trip to Rocky Mount to get it repaired. We did some grocery shopping while there. It ended up taking most of the day. We came home and worked on things that needed doing. We had planned on doing school today and then taking a break for the rest of the week. We’ll do school tomorrow instead and then break. I love the flexibiltiy of homeschooling.
Grace put one of our freshly butchered chickens in the crockpot today to cook while we were gone. When we got home it smelled so good in the house. We deboned it and make chicken and dumplings. They are delicious!! I think I am spoiled now to having our own chickens for meat. We plan on making stock tonight in the crockpot from the bones. YUMMY!
Well, I guess that’s about all that is happening here. My girls are wanting me to play a game of cards with them. Enjoy your evening and God bless.
I hope you all had a great 4th of July. This MawMaw was very happy! For the first time, EVER, all our grandkids were here at the same time. Chuck and his crew arrived first.
They managed to find a few ripe blackberries.
We did hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill and sit in the shade most of the day.

Everyone was very impressed by the little frogs that are in the “little pond”.
Sam, just being Sam.
The swings got lots of use.
I think the hammock was the most loved though. They spent lots and lots of time making the hammock into a big swing. After we ate, we all took a ride down the Parkway to Mabry Mill. I, of course, forgot my camera but Dave took a picture of everyone there at the mill. He is going to email it to me so if I can figure out how to transfer it over I will post it. I so badly wanted to get a group picture but the day just sped by and it slipped my mind. Then on up to a little place called Meadows of Dan. We ate pizza in a little gazebo there. Thanks Dave! The little boys had tons of fun playing with rocks that were there. We then came home and Dave and Chuck set off some fireworks Dave had brought with him. The first boom sent 3 or 4 deer running out of the cornfield. I guess they thought it was hunting season starting early. After that it was off to “little town” to see the big fireworks display. We all had a great day. From about 10:30 in the morning till about 9:30 that night, my entire immediate family was together. God is good. Now, I wonder when we could do it again!!
I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
