Before more time slips away, I wanted to share my Independence Day. I had thought that, since my daughter would be working and my son and his family would be up Bangor way, I would spend my day alone. Nope! I spent the day with my sister and part of her family.
|A 4th of July Welcome|
One niece spent her time hiking. Hiking? Who hikes on the 4th of July?
The rest of us were far more sensible and stayed home eating and holding the baby.
This little girl was the center of attention. She's two months old now and staying awake longer and longer.
|First Cousins Once Removed|
Laurel was on her way to work an overnight shift and had just enough time to hold the baby.
I really like the photo above and below. The one above shows my sister looking on all smiles and the photo below shows where her lips usually are when she's holding her grandgirlie. ☺
I did not snag a picture of my brother-in-law Steve (who did all the grilling) nor of Anneke's big brother. That I will remedy by popping in a video of him meeting and greeting a turtle, shared by his mom. I have never seen a turtle run so fast!
It was a wonderful, enjoyable day. God is good.
Twelve years ago today, John and I eloped. He was one of the best decisions I ever made. After he passed away, after only such a short time, I questioned myself. Today, I can smile and thank God for allowing John to be a part of my life. He was a love and so very good to me.
Thank you for your visit.
