Precious Time

The kids are getting older.

It is good, but it also
reminds me that there is coming a day
when we will be in competition with
in-laws to enjoy the Holidays together.

Shame on me!

However, I was delighted yesterday
to walk outside to this...




Warren is hiding behind this tree.




To see Warren playing frisbee with the
kids blessed my heart.

Then this happened...

Crazy Mikey, like a bullet, right
through the frisbee game! LOL


I think Jonathan was catching the
frisbee intended for Chelsea.
She is not afraid to tell him
what she thinks!



Kimmy loved the time outside!


Chloe was sleepy...she wanted up!


The weather was so perfect.

I caught my Mother-in-law taking down her
laundry. Just had to shoot!


It took her a while to fold this shirt...
hmmm... I wonder why....
I know, I am bad!
It was just too fun!
Then I walked around the house and took
pictures of the end of summer flowers.
They did not complain!
They have been so nice this year.










Soon, Mikey was back from his little
ride.



We grilled last evening.
New York Strip Steaks!
YUM!
The Moms joined us and we
had an early birthday celebration
for M-E.
I requested and enjoyed Mom's awesome
potato salad. Love it sooooo much!

The Moms will be away
on my birthday so Georgia baked a
scrumptious Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake
and Mom brought Chocolate Peanut Butter
Ice Cream....Sigh....there were a lot of
candles on that cake!

Sorry, no pictures.
It was just too pleasant to sit on the
deck to get up to retrieve the camera.

We sat and soaked in the evening until
about 9:00 pm.

A very special day with family!

Another memory made and treasured!

You are right about building memories - so important to tie those heartstrings!
