Everyday Happenings

With each passing year the summers go faster and faster.  Here is a snippet of what we've been up to.

**Most importantly, my Dad turned 80!  We all went out to dinner at our hometown restaurant, Pica's, to celebrate.

Happy Birthday Dad!

**Time at the pool:

**Mary had her silks team over to practice:

**The 4th of July:

**Vacation Bible School:


Neither meal got eaten, by the way.

**Washing windows: He's thrilled.

**And finally, dress up and selfies:

They made me promise not to post these. 

Don't tell them, okay?
