happiness is....

Charlotte Claire with Little Miss Sunshine, Sunny for short...also dubbed Jubooboo, Ja-boo-boo, by Miss Char. Char LOVES her Bunny-Boo-Boo, she talked me into the bandana thingy, the other pups have them as well. We also bought them new reflective collars...oh, what a great day for the dog loving little girl!

From the yard, red raspberries.

Enjoying the new deck!

Yesterday didn't go as planned...for one, it took forever and a day to get out the door to Walmart with the two princesses.(Then we had to turn around after driving five miles down the road, one of them had forgotten See, the boys had a change in plans...why go to a crowded state park for a hike when you can invite your friends here, instead?! There's a pool, a trampoline, a big yard to shoot airsoft guns, and the deck...and a mom who will make good food. So instead of just being Paul and I and the two little girls, now it would be Joe, Sam, Jon, and four of their friends. Paul and Sam put the ribs in the oven on low, and we headed to the store.

Walmart...we tried to hurry, but how can anyone NOT dawdle in Walmart? The variety of shoppers intrigues me in itself, but then there all the things to look at, too! We needed dog chow and pool chlorine tablets. We bought new collars and bandanas, then got in line before we looked at any other things we just had to have.

The next store, Wegmans, is the best grocery store...we got a watermelon, some strawberries and blueberries, salad stuff...then I let the girls pick out a donut or muffin. We bought burger and cheese and butter and drinks, and some snacks. cream for the boys for later. I also bought some no-sugar Outshine bars, which are super yummy popsicles, 25 calories each. So yay, I can eat two or three, ha. I did have two on the way home.

Going out and about with just the two little girls: priceless. Char acts all grown up, but Cam still spins and dances down the aisles. They wanted red, white, and blue nail polish...and they got it. They chatter and exclaim and enjoy my full attention.

Margaret came over for dinner with her two puppies, then Ashley and Anya came for a visit.

And today....Mali and little Lydia are coming over, and Emily, and Ashley and Anya's supposed to be 83 and sunny....what's not to like?
