Turning back time to the 4th!

Celebrating Independence Day!
Happy 4th of July!!

 Ellie giving Grandpa (my dad) kisses!  She was so-so-so cute with him!  He just kept laying there, and she just kept kissing him!

We started the show!  FIREWORKS!
Hank pointing out the awesome fireworks.  He has witnessed the 4th of July show at my parents house 3 summers now, once when he was a baby, and the last two years- 2012, and 2013!
 Tallie and Nick just love Independence day!  Here they celebrate with a smooch!!
 Not everyone, but a good amount of the Hinkson/ Gifford crew!

It's bedtime!

Saturday is a special day it's the day we get ready for Sunday!  That is a song that some of you readers may know.  When thinking of keeping the Sabbath day holy, the song really should have including "Saturday is a day that we start preparing for Monday" too!

So- bedtime- it is sometimes hard to actually go to bed early on Sat. cause of all those things I should or need to do before Sunday!!

Well- tonight I am just going to actually go to bed!  Goodnight!!

Is it bedtime for you?

Here is Ellie amongst my lovely roses!
A close up on their beauty, that color Is fabulous!

 What is that oozing out of the bag- you may be asking yourself?

Yes- snails.  I found loads of snails in the bushes out front.  Hank and I collected them all, saved them and showed many people the obscured amount of snails, then got Mark to crush them up in a paper bag, so we could put them right into the green waste!  OK- have a great day!

Hot day solution- take a dip!

A few hot days came our way in June- our solution on this particular day was to blow up the pool.  We had a blast!
Here is Ellie!  She is so cute, even from the back.

Hank was telling me something!


 Smiley girl!
