Tomatoes, Nail Polish, Knitting and Owen!!

What an awesome Saturday I had!! My day started out with John and I having breakfast with our friends, Melvin and Roxanne. What a nice catch up time that was! I had blueberry pancakes, which are one of my favorites! Then for our anniversary (which is Thursday #32!) John gave me an early gift of a spa manicure/pedicure at My Bella Spa! I haven't had either one of those in quite some time. I picked out a really bright pink, which you can see in the photo below!

Then I saw my Cherokee Red tomato plant had 2 ripe tomatoes on it. I was so excited because I love these heirloom tomatoes-they are sooooo good! I decided to make a tomato sandwich with one of them-it was so good!

Then off to knitting with my friends at Dillworth Coffee House! I stayed there until about 3:20 and what a great time we had. Those girls are the best!!

Drove home, picked up John and we headed up to Jenny and Kevin's to watch Owen!!! I couldn't wait to see him! It had been 1.5 weeks since we saw him last and I missed that little boy. He was awake most of the time and he was so good. Here are some pictures of our fun time!

That little baby loves his milk!!!

Owen spent quite a bit of time gurgling to us-just like he was trying to tell us something! Maybe he was trying to tell us what great grandparents we are-LOL!!!

Toward the end of the visit Owen was getting sleepy. He acted like he was really bored with all his little hanging toys.

We had such a wonderful time with him, I am so glad he lives close enough for us to visit often!! We will be watching him overnight so Jenny and Kevin can celebrate their anniversary in 2 weeks-I can't wait!!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Sherri, I haven't been blog hopping in a while and when I came over here, I just said "ahhh" when I saw your header. It so fresh and cool and summery. Pretty!

Your grandson is just beautiful. Congratulations!

Owen looks adorable! And Sherri, your hair looks great! How nice of John to give you the spa certificate. I love the color of the polish. Fun! Sounds like you've had a really nice weekend.

Sherri, sounds like you had a perfect weekend. Your grandbaby is precious! I have been super busy and have not had much time for blogging. I still can't believe that the summer is almost over. I have that same watch! Love & blessings from NC!

You make me laugh at your silliness.

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!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
