My new babies...

I am a new mom...actually grandma...wait< I like mom better! The sweet kitty that adopted our family when we moved had a litter of adorable kittens. She is such a good momma kitty...She had her litter under my daughter's bed and then moved them to the closet where I prepared a box with a soft blanket for her...The kids are loving it! Even my 16 year old son has already found a soft spot for one special kitty and I often find him sitting in my closet these days...precious!

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to enjoy a couple of days with some friends at the beach! We had so much fun...just talking...walking the beach looking for shells...and of course eating lost of chocolate and doing a bit of shopping in the little beach town. I feel so refreshed!

I even had a chance to snap a few photographs while I was there...I just had to share them! (at the bottom of my Blog!)

A "Berry" good 4th of July!

Had a BLAST on the Fourth of July in our new community! My family enjoyed Fireworks over the water! We had a great spot in the grass on the bank and watched two beautiful displays on either side of us!

Earlier in the day we picked over 20 pounds of fun! I admit I have never picked berries before...I even remembered to bring my camera and got some fun shots of my family in the fields. When we got home... my daughters and I had fun making some Strawberry Jam and shortcakes for Strawberry Shortcake...The downside however, is that I have been eating Strawberry Shortcake almost everyday...even for dinner! YUM! Oh well...Berry Season only happens once a year...

Now I can't wait till the Raspberries are ready!
