Family Weekend

This has been a fun family weekend. Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. Hard to believe it has been that long. Time flies.

I know it is a lot warmer in other areas but here in Oregon it is 90 degrees. That is really warm for here! So what have I been doing? Sitting in my cool house and relaxing. We don't have air conditioning (there is only really a few days a year you need it in Oregon!) but the house is well insulated and I close everything up, turn on some fans and it is pretty comfortable. 

I spent a little time changing my blog from a 3 column to a 2 column. I noticed almost all my favorite blogs were that set up and now I can make my horizontal photos bigger. I like it! How does it look? The pictures aren't too big are they?

We had a BBQ this weekend at Jerry's brother Shane's house. Their cat has the prettiest eyes! Janae's eyes aren't bad either:)

This picture of my husband, Grandma, and his brother Scott is a new favorite of mine. How precious is that? Grandma looks adorable! She is so spunky.

Gage had a good time visiting with Grandma Suzy.

I truly love my 4 legged Grandbabies--but sure would be fun to have one with 2 legs. Scott (Jerry's brother) is dating a girl with a young son...he is so adorable! I could play with him all day. What a doll baby.

Well, time to go start another gallon of sun tea. I am enjoying this lazy weekend!

I'll get my creative vibe back when it cools off:)

Thanks for stopping by!
