Summer Fun!

I have always loved hydrangeas.   I was so excited when my next door neighbor's mother sent me a cutting from her garden last year.  I planted it and was so surprised when it produced this beautiful bloom.  Thanks again Deb!

I had the girls over for 5 days and we had so much fun.

Each day we had to drop off my son at the mall for work.  So we made some time to squeeze in a little fun since we were already there.  There was no problems with that!

Yes, and they still love riding the carrousel!

And they played on the slip and slide to cool off on these summer days.  Oh my, it has been so HOT!

One day we all met Popsy for dinner after work at the girls favorite restaurant.

We sang and danced until late at night! These those girls have some energy.  But Grammy kept up!

How beautiful it is, so glad it bloomed for you. It's not summer without some flowers growing somewhere nearby so you can admire their beauty.

Glad you had some good time with your grands!
1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
