...busy, busy, busy! You all know what I am talking about right? Of course you do.
So much to do around the house and yard, so many sweet things to take part in!
And add in a busy 12 year old's schedule and you have...well...you have one pooped old Mom! But I love it...I DO! Just ignore the bags under my eyes and the annoying yawning...
The last 2 weeks have been such a joy. We celebrated my Mom and brother's birthdays, the end of elementary school of Grace & the end of the college semester for Dan. I had lunch with dear friends on several occasions, dinner with our oh so special neighbors and dear friends, several sleepovers, trips to King's Island, an end of the year school party, a Sheryl Crow concert, 3 graduation parties, the start of Summer School and Summer Strings Camp and...um...okay. We get the point Susie Q! It's been busy! Sheesh!
This is my sweet Mom and my kids on her 83rd birthday!
We had a *week of Mom* with dinners out and at home, a trip
to a local dinner theater and another to a great restaurant in Cincinnati!
This is our wonderful nephews, (Bill's brother's sons) Chris and Nate, with Grace. Chris graduated from High School last weekend! He is entering Wright State in August to study Law Enforcement.
Nate will begin HS in the Fall and Grace will start Middle school. Wow. Where does time fly? *sigh*
Mom's cake at the La Comedia dinner theater. We had such a great time,
the food was so good and the musical, Church Basement Ladies, was lots of fun.
That Sunday we all took Mom, and our friends Julie and Kelly, to
The Grand Finale near Cincinnati for Sunday brunch. It was delicious!
The decor is such fun and so pretty and warm.
Julie and her daughter, Grace's BFF, Kelly!
Grace and her Uncle Jim! Jim took Grace to see the Sheryl Crow/Colbie Calliat
concert this week! It was a surprise to her and they had a wonderful time!
My Mom with her two kids!
Don't Bill and Jim look like the *Champagne Brunch Bouncers*?
I love this picture!
The Grand Finale is in Glendale and the area is
both historic and beautiful. Truly lovely old homes...
Several gorgeous old churches...
...and a beautiful town square filled with shops, cafes, pubs and
this old train station museum.
I have also had such fun over the past 3 weeks meeting friends to see two great local bands, The Stumps and White Rabbit. Each plays classic rock and are so talented! The bands have one other thing in common, their drummer! I went to High School with Gary and it has been my honor to be asked to take a band photo for each one, images that will appear in the newspaper along side their recent interviews.
Just a glimpse into the Summer craziness at Rabbit Run Cottage! It is a busy season but we wouldn't have it any other way right?
I hope you are enjoying June and staying cool...the swimming pool is calling so we are off again!
Love to each one of you!
