A little of this...a little of that.

Wanted to share a few photos from my birthday celebration....a day of work for everyone that loves me...LOL.....here is hubby, sons-in-law, and oldest daughter helping pull out (with a large chain and the 4 wheel drive pickup) 2 bushes that started out very small about 15 years ago. What a job...bless them.

Here are 6 of the 9 grandkids....what helpers they were also. It was fun for them, especially riding in the big wagon that attaches to the garden tractor.

And little Oliver wishing Grandma a Happy Birthday!
We have a trailer up by Lake Erie that we can go to between April and October. Hubby and I went up there for a couple of days, came home to mow, have appts., and do laundry. Then went back up on Saturday and returned today. It is so nice to get away, but equally nice to come back home. Here is a gorgeous sunset out on the dock the first night we were there.

I have lilly of the valley planted there also and figured it was a good bouquet for my birthday.

This is a robin's nest that hubby found in the boat yard....on the back swim deck of one of the boats...wow, right out in the open. I couldn't get a good shot of the 2 babies, but they were there, sleeping. Don't know where Mom and Dad were, maybe finding worms.
