A little trip

Blogger hates me.  I just feel the need to say it ONE more time! 
Last week Dh was gone to see his mother and a friend and our precious Tinkerbell.  We miss her so much.  It was good for Dh to go and hang out with his mom too. Dh took this pictures.  Here's the highlights of his week.
Isn't this an interesting cloud whatever. 
So cool!
A tractor up a pole.  Why?  I don't know!  It's at the tractor store I guess.
Our Tinkerbell.  She turned 6 this month. SIX!

Up on the slide. She has her Papa in the palm of her hand. 

Great Grandma and Papa and Tink.

Dh's Aunt and Uncle.  No matter what I did this would not turn.
Dh's Grandmother.  Again, it would not turn.

Dh's sister and mom. Not sure what Sister is doing in this picture.

Dh and his mama.  She is 96.  He had a good week with her.

Sunday Dinner

I'm not sure if anyone remembers, but Monkey had a little friend named Kitty.  He loved her and had her from the time he was very little. He almost always had her with him.  One day we could not find her.  She was just gone!  We have ripped our house apart trying to find her. He has another cat named Carnation but she wasn't the same.  Quite a bit of time has gone by and he still talked about her and missed her very much.  I have looked at places that sell Ty babies and could not find another one.  On a whim last week I went on Amazon and lo and behold there she was.  I ordered Monkey a new Kitty.  She came this week.  This boy is so happy.  I think the only time she hasn't been with him is when he was at school.  Anyone else think of the scene from Toy Story 3 when the bear and doll finally got home after being left at the picnic only to find they had been replaced?  YIKES.  BUT a long time has gone by.  He's a happy boy.
See his smiley face!

He was sleeping on the couch.  See how close he is holding her?  He says it's not quite the same but very close! 
It has been a very beautiful weekend.  It actually made it into the 70's.  I have a red face from working in the yard.  I got 3 flower beds done and a start on the 4th.  That 4th one is my nemesis.  I love it when I'm done though. I probably should have done it first so it would be out of the way.  But I figure if I get side tracked at least I have 3 done, right? 
  I texted T2 yesterday on our way into the grocery store and said I needed an idea for dinner for Sunday.  He said BBQ.  I think that was plan for 9000 other people in the area.  It was so pretty out! 
So T2 and Kevin came early to make sure the grill was clean and that it had gas.  Our whole neighborhood smelled like BBQ.  And the air was humming!  Everyone was either mowing their lawns or power washing. 

A Princess and a pickle. 

Buster the little goofball!

Bugs and his new cool glasses.

Skater the Chef!  He did a good job.  It's been a while and he might have been out of practice. 

Sitting at the table outside looking up.  Just a beautiful day.

Beautiful DIL and Bella. 

T2 and his favorite Buster.
I had told Drummer that the yard needed mowed and I wasn't going to get to it.  He came and made it happen.  Isn't he a sweet Yard Boy?  I love him and appreciated it so much.

Weed whacking.  I hate that job but love the way it looks.

Styling T2.

On to the mowing.   While he was mowing he found an egg!  LOL  There is always one isn't there.

Sitting at the table talking with the boys and the sunset in the distance.

Walker got locked off the deck so we could eat without a hairy rug laying under the table.  He was telling me he was really ready to come up now.  Skater had dropped a burger while cooking and I gave him the hot dog Buster didn't eat.  He KNEW there was good stuff up on the deck. 

Sunset from my deck.

Mt. Baker in the other direction from my deck.  I live in a beautiful part of the world. 
Dh has been with his mother for the past week and he got home just in time for dinner.  That was nice.  He got a lot accomplished with his mother and spent some time with a friend that was also in town.  So onto a new week we go.
Have a blessed week.

The Zoo

I took Monkey and Princess and Buster to the Zoo. We had such a good time. The weather was beautiful! I thought Princess would give me a run for it but stuck to me like white on rice! She was worried about getting left. I couldn't have lost her if I had tried. Buster on the other hand was a straight up RUNNER! I finally just had to put him in the stroller and buckle him up. Oh he stuck his lip out so far! It was funny. He did have a good time and I did get him out and help him see the animals and stuff but he did have to sit in the stroller.

At the jaguar. He's off to the left. I could just tell you he's in the picture. What? You can't see him? :)

We could have sit there and watched the gorilla's all day long!

Isn't he cute WAY up there?

Just so majestic! I love them.

My trio!

The hippo up in the sun. They are so big looking on land.

The Queen of the jungle. The King was laying in the deep grass and you could only see the top of his head.

They loved this little elephant. We had to wait our turn to get to him. VERY hard for Buster. I think he was in several other families pictures. LOL

Such a pretty monkey.

She came right up to the glass and looked and Princess and Monkey. Not sure who was checking who out more.

Everyone was enjoying the sunny day.

Look at all the monkeys!

We have been many times and not always seen the wolves. They were out and so beautiful!

We don't see this guy very often either.

I can't remember what kind of Eagle this was.

The Elk.

There was an aviary with lots of birds. You can buy a little stick with seeds on it and hold it out and the birds with come and sit on the stick and eat or lean from a branch and eat the seeds. Well no strollers allowed in there. WALL TO WALL PEOPLE! So Buster is loose, and I'm trying to help 2 short people feed the birds. I got told twice that Buster wasn't allowed to climb the trees or throw rocks. REALLY?? LOL

My hand helping Monkey, Princess's hand and Buster escaping in the background.

There is a cougar under the 3 of them. Honest.

On the ride home. A good time was had by all!

A Sunday Recap

This has been a long week!
Back to reality is always hard! It's much nicer to play all the time.

Thursday's Hummer. I know this looks like all the other ones but I swear I get a new one each week. I'm not sure what I'm hoping to change by taking pictures of the same birds with the same camera but I just love them and don't think you can have to many pictures of them.

Are you looking at me?

Bugs caught his first frog of the season. Oh goodie! Pudgy little thing.
Our wonderful DIL offered to have dinner at her house today. It was so nice. She fixed a wonderful dinner and when I was hugging Princess hello she was telling me Mama made a cake. I asked her if she spoiled a surprise and she said OH!

T2 and Buster snuggling.

The cake! Wasn't that so sweet!

Our anniversary is tomorrow but we started celebrating last night. T2 came over in the afternoon and asked to take The Littles to his place for the night so Dh and I could go out on a date. We just went up to where Heir works and hung out and had dinner and listened to the band. We had a good time. It was very nice to stay out very late and not worry about anyone or being home on time. We even did a Walmart run in the middle of the night. It was a very nice anniversary.

after dinner snuggles.

Us and our 29Th Anniversary cake.
Heir made a joke that we needed to light the candle so everyone could sing. I asked sing what? so Roommate started a little diddy about anniversary to the tune of Happy birthday. Everyone kind of picked it up. Weirdo's!

Blowing out our candle.

Our Drummer and The Littles in the background.

Princess and I moments after she headbutted me in the chin. LOL It was an accident.

Buster putting himself to bed.

I jest I JEST! He was playing in Bella's kennel. He's a silly ham bone.

I hope you have a blessed week.
