Drying Time

We seem to be into a drying spell from the monsoon, but higher temps again. Come Wed. we will be at 105. Oh well it is summer in the desert.

Haven't been doing to much. Did give the house a good cleaning up. 

Today besides our Sunday breakfast we had a double birthday party to go too. My granddaughter Amanda and her first born are the same day. It was quite a birthday gift for her 6 yrs ago. It was a day of lots of kids running and having a good time. They have a pool where they live so they took all the kids to the pool and I helped my grandson clean up the food and drinks from lunch. He then took off for his swim and I relaxed in the nice cool club house. My ex SIL and his new wife came in and we sat and caught up on what has been going on. It didn't last long as the little ones starting returning and one not so happy and screaming her lungs out. They brought out the cake and something didn't go well with that but I didn't see quite what happened but it looked like one of the kids pushed the birthday boys face in the cake. That sure didn't sit well with some of the adults or my grandson. Of course the cake was ruined. they moved on quickly as quite a mess was made and they needed to have it cleaned up before they left the room that they had rented. Gifts were opened and we headed out the door. 

Tomorrow I have to take the truck for emissions testing the first time since I bought the truck. I have no doubt it will pass. Then order my new tags online for 2 yrs. It sure was nice not to have to do this for 4 yrs since I bought the truck but I don't know if I can do it for that long again but will check.

In the back we have Eric with his niece Miliani, baby up close is Armani

Way in the back is Jazz, but we were trying to get Miliani  to turn around but when she did the phone wouldn't take the picture

I had stopped at Walmart after breakfast to see about a new phone and the one I wanted was out of stock. I'll have to keep checking with them this week to see if it came in. But I'm pretty proud of myself that I finally bit the bullet and downloaded these from my phone. 

Good Night All


  1. Family fun always involves some fun and some chaos too, as is expected when children are present...
    Hope you find the phone you want. The photos are great!!

  2. Hi Sondra,
    Yes I just sit and watch them run all over the place and the little ones chasing after them haha it is really to funny. I was hoping the pictures would come out OK since I used my phone and figured out how to transfer them to the computer and it only took me what 2 - 3 yrs

  3. Cool pictures! Looks like everyone had fun! Too bad about the cake - I would have still eaten a piece. I'm glad you all could catch up on times and things went well.

  4. Hi Brad,

    Thanks we did have a good time and having it indoors for the non pool folks was great. It was a small cake that had matching cup cakes so at least that had those.
