This and That!!

Hi Everyone!! The weather here in Ohio has been so beautiful for days now. Sunny days and cooler nights. It has been gorgeous!!! I've been busy with lots of things. We are finally getting somewhere on our backyard project, all the pavers are here and ready to go and I am looking at having a pergola put up to get a little shade during the day. We get direct sun in the backyard so it would be great to have a little shade. I also planted some Mums and cleaned up the front yard. So here's some photos of the grandkids over the past few weeks. Every week my Dad takes all his girls out to lunch one day and breakfast one day and we always go to Frisch's for breakfast. I think breakfast is Maddie's favorite thing to do, she loves to get cupcakes(pancakes)!! So I took her photo with the Frisch's Big Boy. LOL
I think Maddie actually took this photo of Sydney one day at the Zip Dip(creamy whip ice cream). It makes me sad the Zip Dip will be closing for the season soon!!! :-(

And these are a bit blurry but here's Cameron playing in a pine tree. It's always amazing to me that a little kid can have so much fun even with a pine tree!!! Hey I'm on a roll here, two posts in a week!! LOL Happy Thursday!!!

Has it really been two weeks????

First off has it really been two whole weeks since I last posted something on my blog??? I am becoming a bad, bad blogger.........LOL But I've been really busy and the weather has been gorgeous here in Ohio so I've been taking advantage of that and getting out of the house(alot). But I really do miss you guys and hope to have more time to visit soon. :-)
Saturday morning I did the Race for a Cure walk with my sisters and niece and two of my brother in laws. It was more of a stroll for a cure because there were so many people walking there was no way you were going to race but they had a great turn out and the weather was just the best. This first photo is at the ballpark here in Cincy, it was open for the race. Thank goodness because we could actually use real potties instead of those porta ones(that is a big deal to me). LOL

So many pink items were for sale but I thought this one was cute "real men wear pink"

Here we are right before the race started at the ballpark. From left to right, it's my sister Gail, my sister Judy, little old me, my niece Allison and my sister June. Yea, I have alot of sisters.......LOL

These next two shots are to show you how big of a turnout it was. Look at this!!!!!

This is the bridge we call the Purple People bridge here in Cincy! It is purple and no cars drive on it only people. It's one of the bridges that connects Cincinnati to Northern Kentucky.

We made it across the finish line!!! Yea!!! The breast cancer survivors got medals as they crossed the line. It was a wonderful walk and a good cause!
I hope you all are well and I am really trying to get my act together and post more and check in on everyone more. Happy Monday!!! :-)
