Owen, Sunflowers and Peaches

I had a wonderful birthday yesterday! Jenny, Kevin, Megan, Ken made me a great dinner. I got to hold Owen alot and he even woke up so we all could see his eyes open. Today John and I just chilled out. I read, did some knitting, took a nap and just plain relaxed! Life is good! The other day I bought some peaches that were just picked that morning and I have got to say they are wonderful! I have been eating one or two a day-they are awesome. I was watering the plants in my garden and containers and I noticed the sunflower that grew from our birdseed was flowering. It brought a smile to my face! Sunflowers are such a happy flower. I thought I would share some photos of Owen, the sunflower and those wonderful peaches with you:

Owen is like a sleeping angel.

Smiling Owen

My friend saw this picture and said Owen was trying to say his name! He actually wanted his bottle, but he is extremely intelligent already so maybe he was trying to say his name-LOL!!!

Here is the sunflower that grew from the birdseed in our feeder. Doesn't it just make you smile!

Peaches, peaches everywhere! These peaches are huge, sweet and wonderful!!

Here are the luscious things right before I ate them-yummy!!

I visited your blog today. I have to say...your blog name caught my eye. I'm Sheri too! I also have two grown daughters. Your photos are so pretty and charming. Those peaches look yummy. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your creative ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

What a beautiful baby Owen is! I know how much delight he must be to hold and touch and just gaze at.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
