Doing a whole lotta dancing!!

So my granddaughter Maddie had her first dance recital this weekend!! Oh boy, it was alot of fun. She was just out there having a good time and waving to her adoring fans(all of us) and I swear we were the loudest people there cheering her on. Hahaha......One of these little girls balloon went up into the rafters and that was end of dancing for her after that. LOL It was a great weekend. Here's a few pictures of her dancing!

Also just wanted to tell you I am very excited because I am going on a journey soon!! Yea!! it's been so long since I went away and I am a person who has always loved to travel but this past year kind of put a hold on all of that and for a long time I didn't want to leave my familiar surroundings. So I'm going a cruise with my best buddy Vicki. It's really kind of a working thing for me. It's a seminar at sea for travel agents but I love the cruise line we are going on(Royal Caribbean) and I love learning new things about the travel industry. They give us plenty of time to see the sights and most of the class is spent when the ship is at sea. Not sure if I'll be able to blog or twitter or facebook while I'm there because I'll be out of the country(they have internet on the ship but will have to check out pricing, don't want a surprise high bill at the end of cruise)! Haha.....I'll probably have some kind of withdrawal from being so connected all the time!! Hope everyone is doing well! Happy Monday!! P.S. Totally off the subject but does anyone have a flip video camera? I'm thinking of getting one to take with me and just to have for when the grandkids come over and was wondering if anyone had one and what you thought of it!! That's it for me today, off to get some work done and meet some old friends for dinner tonight!!

If you are thinking of getting an IPad.......

This is too cute! I haven't looked at the Ipad yet but this kitty seems to give it a two paws up!! Hahaha...... I know this is a little long but watch it to the part where he plays the virtual piano! Have a great Sunday!!

Spring Snapshots!!

Spring is in bloom here in Cincinnati!! I LOVE it!! Here's a few photos from the past few weeks. My yard is still a work in progress but the steps to the new back patio are coming along nicely. Yea! No more step ladder from the back door to the new paver patio. Haha.... The grand kids are excited for the new pond/fountain to be put in. I promised them that I would get a fish for each one of them to put in the little fountain/pond. Maddie says her fish will be named "silly guy". I have no idea why but every fish she has ever had is named "silly guy". LOL I am getting some Koi fish but have never had them before so if anyone has had any experience with Koi fish, I could use the advise! Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Just a few Easter pics.......

It was a beautiful day here in Southwest Ohio yesterday and I had a wonderful Easter Sunday! Here's just a couple of pics after our brunch yesterday! I took so many photos yesterday and I'm still going through them all. LOL My little granddaughters were so cute in their Easter dresses! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and I really am trying to work my way around blogville but this beautiful weather keeps calling me to go outside. Haha.... Today it felt like it was early Summer around here but I'm not complaining, I love the warm weather and tonight we have tornado watches in our area. I hope everyone is safe and happy!!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!! I hope you all have a wonderful day with family! It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day here in Ohio. I am heading off to brunch with my Dad and family and the kids and grandkids are coming over later today for a grill out and Easter egg hunt. It should be fun. Last night I went to an early Easter service at our church and was so moved by the service. I love Easter and what it means! Have a great day!!

Beautiful day at the Zoo!!

What an absolutely gorgeous Spring day it was in Cincinnati today!! So I decided to tag along to the Cincinnati Zoo with Madison and Sydney. Here's a few of our photos:
I love the way Sydney carries her baby doll around. She has to have her by her side always!
And I got a half way decent shot of both the girls sitting in this fake tree!
And this is my very favorite shot of Sydney! Isn't she the sweetest little thing in her pink sparkle hat?
I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Easter!! Happy Easter bloggy friends!!
