It's A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood...

On the way back home I decided to take some pics because it is so beautiful today.  Hubby is frying a bunch of fish in celebration of my Grandmother's birthday.  She turned 83 October 2 and we're celebrating at my home today with family.  We'll all sit around stuffing ourselves with dinner and then cake and pie until we can't hardly walk...lol!  The best part is listening to stories my grandma tells about her childhood and raising my mother and my uncles.  There are some dandy stories and we never get tired of hearing them. :)
By the way, I really liked Mister Rogers and his neighborhood!  I'm guessing I'm not alone. :)
Keep your hopes high and have a fabulous Sunday!



This is the little lake down the street from our home where we escorted
Mama Mallard and her babies, most of you probably remember her. :)

Gotta love this sign. :)

To the right is our clubhouse and that is where my baby boy,  the swimmer, learned how to swim...precious memories. :)
There are two pools, one for adults only and the other for kids and families so, everybody is happy. 

Finally home and it looks like a busy day for everyone.

Love the trees along the street and the sign that you have ducks nearby, which probably means you have much more than ducks, I'd guess.

Happy Birthday to your Grandmother!

What a nice neighborhood you live in Marie! So much green grass! I took liked Mr. Rogers when the kids would watch him when they were younger.

Happy belated birthday to your sweet grandma! What a wonderful thing to get together and celebrate her special day; I'm sure her stories are so very special indeed!

Enjoy!

Like you said, the best part is listening to the old stories that they have to say.
Its never ending and sometimes it teaches us a thing or two.
