I wish I knew where the days went and how they go by so, so fast! Whew! It has been a week since I last posted and I have, as usual, been an awful visitor. I am always truly grateful that so many of yo stop by and say hello even when I seem lax at making my blog rounds! Bless yor hearts, I love you all!
So, where did that last week go? It flew by in a cloud of softball games, a concert, a funbdraiser, 2 celebrations, every day errands and housework and, well, life! I know you all understand how that goes!
One evening our family took a little drive to enjoy the sunshine and sweet Spring temperatures. We ended up near Cincinnati and the Brazenhead Pub so we stopped in for dinner. I love this place...so much like a *real* English or Irish pub. Well, at least it is similar to some of the ones I was in!
This was so good! Grilled chicken and ratatouille! Yes! Ratatouille! A delicious French peasant dish, also a movie...an animated Pixar movie featuring the voice of one Brian Dennehy as Django the rat...but I digress. Ahem...
And we celebrated Bill's birthday! Uh huh,my handsome husband turned 54!
His party request? All the family over for chili, cornbread, salad and cake!
He got lots of gifts...
Yes, Kipper IS thinking, "Drop it...drop it...drop it pleeeeaaase!"
Oh, and uh huh. Kip IS sporting a banana sticker on his head. As soon as I come in from the grocery with a new bunch we KNOW Danny will be putting the stickers on Kip! It is THEIR little game...: )
On Mother's Day morning our knock out roses began blooming! What a pretty sight!
We enjoyed church and a nice drive then headed downtown to the Oregon District in Dayton.
Parmesan encrusted Haddock...can you say Mmmmmm?
The 2 reasons I am such a proud mom, Dan and Grace.
They are posing here with their Grandma, my lovely mom, Miriam.
The kids and the moms...that's me on the right. The chubby blonde with the wild hair!
And then...well, I don't want to bore you more than I already have so I will stop for now!
I will work at hoppin' 'round to see all of you during the next few days.
Enjoy the rest of your week...
Love to you all!
