3 Years of Blogging

Yesterday, July 27, 2014, was my 3 year blogging anniversary!  I've enjoyed blog land so much!  . :)  I would love for so many of us to meet up at a house at the beach or in the mountains and chat in person!  Maybe that will happen one day. :)

Son has been in Florida visiting his grandparents and friends, I've missed him so much!  We will be picking him up at RDU at 7 tonight, so happy!!!

I'll leave you with some favorites of mine. :)

Hugs to you all!

Colorful Backyard

When we moved into our new home one of the first things I did was plant flower seeds.  I took everything I could find and threw them into the built in planters on the lower deck.  We're finally seeing some beautiful blooms!  
I may have to beg MadSnapper to send me more Powder Puff and Poinciana pods, I'm not sure if I have any left.  My parents have Sandra's grandchildren down in Florida, hope they survive. lol

Happy weekend!

Roxanne likes flowers just like her mommy. :)
This pic was taken on Thursday (yesterday).

Our Life In Cary

We're really enjoying our new home in Cary!  It didn't take long before the neighborhood squirrels came by to welcome us look for treats. lol!  And as you would guess, it didn't bother me one bit!  They are so smart and so entertaining!   
I've actually seen a Bald Eagle in my backyard.  A bunch of crows were chasing it.  He/she landed in the top of a pine tree and talk about gorgeous!  Sadly, it all happened so fast that I didn't have a chance to snap a pic.  Those crows really work well as a team, quite impressive birds.
Son and hubby have been practicing archery, I've been planting flowers and the pups are enjoying their new playground. :)
It's a beautiful day here!  Hope you're day is beautiful in every way!

Happy 18th Birthday Son!

My baby boy is 18 yrs young!  It seems like just yesterday I was carrying him around on my hip and now he can pick me up.  ha! ha!  
My parents showed up at midnight to start Kyle's birthday celebration!  Hubby and I bought Kyle a pool table for his birthday and his grandparents showed up with pool table chairs for him as one of his gifts.  We had a great time playing pool into the early a.m.!

Happy birthday my son, I love you.
