A Day Late And A Dollar Short...

Okay! So I am always late these days and much more than ONE day!
(and let's not talk about how short those dollars are!)
But heck...can you forgive me? Please? PLEASE?
I have a lot of catching up to do so let's start here...Mother's Day/Bill's birthday.
The day was beautiful! Truly. One of those Spring days you long for all Winter.
We all went to church and after services we headed to Madison Bistro.
They have a yummy brunch on special days and yes. We all left feeling quite satisfied!
It was all you could eat...all kinds of breakfast goodies from omelets and casseroles to waffles and pancakes. There was fruit of all sorts, and do not even get me started on the luncheon part of the buffet! *sigh*
Mom and Grace...after lunch and just before Grace changed shirts in the van! She had to be attired in her Dragon's gear for a trip into Dayton!
After brunch we headed downtown to Fifth Third Field
to see The Dayton Dragons play ball!
Grace and Gem, The Dayton Dragon's Mascot
Grace and Heater, the Dayton Dragon's mascot
Gem is Heater's sister for those of you wonderin'...*grin*
Grace and her Daddy, the Birthday Boy
Dreamin' of the big leagues...
Hi Heater! After the game we all had dinner at Mom's. Lots of great food
and an ice cream birthday cake to boot!
Grace and her Auntie
Grace and Grandma
Dan's no surgeon but he cut pretty good chunks of cake for each of us! Dan isn't crazy about having his picture on blog, and I respect that, but
he usually allows me to add one now and then!
Notice the blue icing on his face and fingers? I think he liked the cake! My nephew Boo wanted to play outside so off we went...
Boo and his Mommy
Run Boo! Daddy's coming!
Havin' fun with Mommy and Daddy I know I am so, so late. Late in posting this an even later in getting around to see everyone.
I think about each of you all the time...and I know you understand
about life getting busy. Still, please always remember that each one of you is a joy to me
and I cherish your friendship. Thank you for being here even
when I am one rotten blogger...
*Oh, and Kipper would like me to tell you that he is late with his Ritter's Dog Night post but it is hard to type with little paws. He will have it up and ready to go this weekend!
Have a sweet weekend!
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q
