It’s very noisy here today. That means progress! Yay! Should go to the lake but there are always questions to be answered so I need to stay around home as much as possible. They are putting in the insulation today so that we will be warm and toasty and working on the plumbing.
Speaking of warm and toasty:
It is getting hotter again. Not as humid this time which is nice just blue skies with puffy clouds and temps in the mid 80’s. Perfect.
We headed to the coast again this past weekend. We never tire of the scenery and of course the seafood. Burp. Sorry about that……
We met up with the Hubs sister, BIL and the triplets. It doesn’t seem possible that they are 18 years old. I remember perfectly the day they came into the world three months early. They were tiny, weighing in around a couple of pounds each. We drove to Boston to see them and SIL who was doing amazingly well.
Now they are college bound this fall and other then Charlie the dog it’s going to be a very empty nest for SIL and BIL. (I may have to send Noodles down to keep things hopping.) They turned out to be the nicest kids you could ever want to meet.
Lauren is a chip off the ole’ block like her Mom and me in the horse department. She is an excellent rider and does lots of things that I am afraid to do like JUMPING! I always enjoyed watching her lessons when we got a chance to go visit them in Massachusetts. She is a sweetie.
Brett is going into Christian Ministries at college and hopes to be a youth pastor when he graduates. He has a wonderful sense of humor and writes like a pro. I always thought he might go into sports journalism as he knows more about sports than just about anyone I know!
Neal is a runner and is headed to the Midwest to college. He takes lots of ribbing from his uncle the Hubs and can give it right back. We never got to see any of his meets in Boston unfortunately but kept up through e-mail and pictures. We are proud of them all!!
This is Charlie. He will now be the king of the roost. He is a super dog and has curly hair on his back!
Here is the whole family with Grampa, even Charlie down in the right hand corner. :o)
The Hubs with his bib on getting ready to chow down on that lobster!
The ferry was just coming in while we were there.
The tide was out.
When the tide comes in this is completely covered.
This is on the way home, part of the bay that runs into the ocean.
A lot of the granite used for counter tops comes from this area.
Got up the next morning and found these sleeping critters on my deck. They had pulled the cushions off the chairs and were nice and cozy!
Even Mom raccoon was there with them, that’s her in the background hoping for some peanuts or marshmallows. They aren’t going to know what to think when the old deck is torn off!
On Saturday we were at the lake and it was beautiful there. Friends dropped in and we were all sitting out by the water watching three boys having a ball jumping off the dock next door. All of a sudden they threw their swim suits out in the lake and proceeded to swim nekkid. The rest of the afternoon. In full daylight. With people all around. Good grief they weren’t toddlers either, they must have been around 10, 8 and 6. Too old to be swimming a-la- nu*de!!! The Mom came down and we all thought that would be the end of that but she was laughing and snapping pictures of them. I guess I am an old fuddy duddy but I don’t think that was appropriate. In this day and age with things being put on the Internet I wouldn’t want to take a chance that my kids would show up on there. You never know who is lurking around. There, rant finished.
Not to say that there wasn’t any skin*ny dipping back in the day, but never during daylight hours with an audience!! Good grief!
