Our Fourth Celebration!


Our big celebration every year since 1998 (Audrey was one year old) has been the three of us and our four-legged children having a day of fun, sun, lounging in the Step 2 kiddie pool, grilling corn on the cob, garlic potatoes & onions in foil and porterhouse steak! Well this year was no different! Brought some snacks, my phone, regular digital camera and my little pocket one too (in the purple case), and my inhaler incase my asthma acts up!

Got he necessities ready!

However this next picture is really the only picture I’m suppose to post of her… her hands. Really, that’s it, she’s 17! Those with teenagers or has had teenagers need no further explanation, right? To help you that haven’t been there yet… I was “informed” (picture me doing quotie marks) that I can’t post any pictures of her, ever, on my blog. When I asked “but I’d like to include you when you’re with us too!” She replied “Okay then, just my hands” so seriously. So here she is! Isn’t she cute!

A lot of my pictures have Audrey (the girl that shall not be photoed) in them, but here are a few random ones that don’t! Lily

On this next photo pay close attention to the 4 stems sticking straight up with NOTHING on them (oh and there’s more than 4)! They were sunflowers! That’s right, we should be enjoying big beautiful yellow flowers (Audrey’s favorite)! Guess what happened? It was a deer buffet! They just strolled right down the line biting the flowers off! The first year that happened!

Audrey of course had this close by! Do you know what the quote on her case is from? It’s a TV show! (I’ll tell you in the comments)
