070713 Independence Day, Birthday, Date Day - all rolled into one post!

Big doings this week:
Thursday, July 4th - Independence Day!
And we celebrated Greg's birthday while we were all together.

A little kiddy pool fun before dinner...

Grandma makes a great pacifier...

 The rest of the menu? 
Grilled hot dogs & hamburgers, sweet tea, potato chips, deviled eggs, 
macaroni salad, tuna salad, jello, watermelon, and home made ice cream.

Best birthday present this year!

 Always fun having time with my little man :~)


 Rounded up the evening with a few fireworks - Lincoln's first. He had mixed feelings!

Saturday was Greg's actual birthday, so we took a walk up in the Shiawassee Nature Preserve.


Furniture for the new screened porch, and such a good deal! Thanks, Martha Stewart at Home Depot.

Plus a fun new accent fountain (we've named it Fin)


I'm thinking his eyes need some enhancement!

Here's to enjoying more fun, family & friends. 


  1. What a star-studded, action-packed, fun-filled weekend. Loved seeing the little previews of the porch and the screen door. The little fountain fin will add such serenity to your space. Wowwwa! You take some amazing photos. Really fantastic. I like the composition of the one of G walking down the lane. So glad you had so many fun moments this weekend.

    1. It was a great time :~)
      Can't wait to have the porch finished, furnished & find ourselves out there with a tall glass of sweet tea!

  2. Looks like you had a great day, love the dragonfly photo :)

    1. Thanks - you cannot believe how much I zoomed in on that in the post-processing! My little Sony Cybershot is unbeatable for a carry around camera.


Would love to know you've been here! Feedback most welcome
