Home for a day!

I just got back from Florida this morning.  Normally when I say that, I am just getting back from a glorious vacation hanging out at the beach eating Sonny's BBQ.  Those of you that know of Sonny's, already know that is vacation in its own.  I love that place.  My husband limits me to once a day!!!  I did get to go twice though. The other times, we ate hospital food.  Which actually wasn't that bad.  The visit for me was sad.  My father in law is not doing well and will be called home soon.  We did move him from the hospital to the house and Hospice is assisting.  What a wonderful program that is!  Please keep him in your prayers.

Before I left for the FL trip, I was able to create this card for a friend.  This is all that I have been able to accomplish recently and hope when things settle down, I can have more time for scrapping. 

As I sit here, listening the the washing machine finish my clothes, I need to re-calculate and repack for a trip to PA tomorrow!  We are supposed to head to Maine the week after that for a camping trip but that is not in stone yet depending on Randy's dad.  I would only be home for a day in between that trip too!  Sometimes I ask my self, "why do I have a house???"  But, there is nothing like coming home and sleeping in your own bed.

Notice my really cool card holder!!!  I just got it:o)

Hospital visits suck!

I have not disappeared off the face of the earth, I swear.  We (my husband and I) are in Florida visiting his father in the hospital.  He is not well and needs prayers.  Please keep him in your thoughts.

Watermelon and S'mores

Nothing says 4th of July like watermelon and S'mores.  We spent 5 nights in Maine with family and had a blast.  Even with 5 days we just couldn't fit everything in.  We swam, had bbq's, kayaked, sparklers, lobster, fried turkey and visited with family that we just don't get to see often enough.  Here are a few pictures that will show you just how much fun we really had.

Don't let this captured moment fool you!!!  He is only a foot deep:o)  I think we are in need of a larger vest.

She is going to kill me but, here I am trying to cover my sister's waddle!!!  She claims she has a double chin!  

Enjoying watermelon to the fullest extent!

His closest in age cousin, Tyler.  (Take note of the missing top teeth!)

S'mores!  Can you actually eat these without making such a delicious mess???

I added this photo, not for the food remnants hanging around in the teeth but for the great big fat blue eyes.  How could I say no to just one more S'more?  Flash those babies and he gets just about everything that he wants:o)  I am in love! 

My friend recently gave me some My Mind's eye "American Made" paper, I think I might have to use it for my 4th pictures.  I will share if I get ambitious!  

Peace out,
