A BIG Surprise

While we were out walking on the beach this morning my cellphone rang.  It was our granddaughter Laci telling us she got married yesterday!!!  Talk about surprised!  We wish she and John all the best.

Laci's wedding

Happy Valentine’s Day!  


A sunshiny morning had us heading for the beach after breakfast.  I found a tiny sand dollar, Emmi ran and ran, we walked and walked.  The perfect morning! IMG_6015 It was time for lunch when we got back—peanut butter and jelly for Michael, ham and cheese for me—big dinner planned!  Mike was then off to Lowe’s to purchase lumber for his project—new steps for the trailer.

IMG_6019Current step for getting into the quilting studio trailer—it’s a big step up into the trailer and hard for Mom.  So my handy/dandy husband built us new steps:

IMG_6020What a difference it makes getting into the trailer now!

Mom’s husband Chuck celebrates his birthday on Valentine’s Day—so tonight we had a birthday party!  Pork tenderloin on the grill, potatoes, grilled asparagus, pinto beans and Mom made him a chocolate pie!  A delicious meal!!  Rollie joined us, a perfect ending to our day.  Happy Birthday Chuck—we are glad you came into our family!

While Michael was building the steps I decided to get some sun—something I don’t do very often—just sit and enjoy the sunshine.  Rollie took notice and said he had to get a photo of me doing absolutely nothing! Smileme being lazy

Angel and Zoey found laps when everyone gathered for the party:


A great Valentine’s Day!
