A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AND A TOUCH OF SPRING

On Sunday we celebrated our oldest granddaughter’s 21st birthday.  She didn’t want a party, all she wanted was to go out to dinner at her favorite seafood restaurant with her family, boyfriend, and Papa and Grammie (that’s hubby and me).  We took two cars and were privileged to have Alexis and her boyfriend ride with us.  She has been a delight her whole life and it has been such a joy to watch her grow up.

I was enjoying myself so much that I didn’t take many pictures and the ones I did take didn’t turn out very well, but I have a couple to share.

Alexis, the birthday girl.

They went for a walk on the beach and her Dad got a beautiful picture of them with the sunset in the background.

SPRING HAS ARRIVED

The calendar says it is officially Spring, but we have been experiencing Spring weather for weeks.  We have begun planting annuals, pruning trees and shrubs, watching caterpillars turn into butterflies, and enjoying this glorious weather.

To welcome the first day of Spring I thought I would share a Touch of Spring around my house.  I’m just going to let the pictures do the talking.

Wishing you all a blessed Spring,

Beautiful granddaughter Sue. Your spring displays are so pretty. Spring is here too. I am always ready for spring after winter. I love winter too, but like it when you just can throw on a pair of shorts and a shirt and NO shoes!lol

Happy Belated Birthday to Alexis. She is a beautiful young lady. Love all your touches of Spring. The little metal tree with the minitures is so cute. Hope you are having a great week.
