Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: Week 32

Cee's Odd Ball Photo Challenge“Odd Ball Photos are those great photos that you take which really don’t seem to fit into a common category.” Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge


My 2 y/o great-niece Finley and I were playing in my parent’s backyard when suddenly she said “Ooh noo he’s crying!”.  I quickly turned to see that this is “who” she was talking about!

Do you see it?

My parent’s swingset in the backyard!

My parent’s have had this playset many years. She is the first to notice the “sad face “!  Of course we think she’s brilliant!

God bless, and have a great week!

The Celebrating: For Britainy!

This past Sunday Aug. 10th we celebrated my niece Britainy’s 29th birthday which was on the 7th! Each person on their birthday get’s to pick their meal and their “cake”.

Britainy requested “Grandpa burgers”, (which usually the grandkids do), Bob Evan’s mac and cheese, jalapeno & cheddar mets and a dirt cake!  The rest of the meal she didn’t care.

“Grandpa burgers” are sirloin patties from a local market near my parent’s, Lehr’s Prime Market” and grilled with another local’s, Montgomery Inn, bbq sauce on them!  Then topped with cheese, if you want, and whatever toppings you like! Nothing fancy, but very delicious!

I got a little sidetracked again, so I didn’t get a lot of pictures but here’s a few!

Usually after our meal we do presents then cake! Today Finley was wanting “cake” so bad we went ahead and did the candles, singing and eating cake first!

Here's her dirt cake!

Of course Britainy needed help with the candles! Left to right: her sister Avery, her daughter Finley, Britainy and her cousin Janie!
