We are back from the most wonderful long weekend ever.
We got together with both of our sons in Oregon.
They planned the whole thing and all Dave and I had to do was just go and enjoy ourselves.
I won't post all of the photos we took but this is more for my journal than anything.
We are on our way...A very long 11 hour drive but great car companions to be with.
We went to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn. Oregon.
The most amazing colors and sky that day.
My Hubby and I..the wind was gentle and no rain for this day!
Since we were at the Wooden Shoe farm we had to be Dutch for the day.
Our two sons, Steve and Mark.
Finally got to meet 2 of our granddaughters... we make one big happy family...
Son Mark and his daughter Samantha.
Today is her 16th birthday.
Love this shot of the girls.
I never saw such neon colored tulips before... jaw-dropping...
Gorgeous...God is the Master Artist.
To be continued....

Yesterday was such a warm and bright shiny day.
I sat out on our patio and read for a bit.
The first "Sit" of the year....
As I gazed up into the trees around me
I saw so much new life...in many different shades of green.
What a restful, gorgeous day....
Gray and the weatherman says rain by this afternoon.
I'm so glad I could enjoy the sun while it lasted.

Well the rain and gray blah is back again.
I yearn for the sun and not having to wear my sweater in the house.
Here are a few Spring-time flowers to brighten the day.
Our Wisteria is beginning to show its lovely lavender blooms to the world.
We have moss growing on our retaining wall.
I love the hairy sprigs of moss.
Enlarge the photo to get the full effect.
I'm not sure what this flower is.
I haven't seen any in our yard for several seasons.
It's dainty and I love the color.
Hope your day is full of sunshine happiness.

A few days ago our next door neighbor needed to come into our backyard.
He had been trimming his tree and the branches fell in our yard.
Mike and Dave worked to clean things up and then our neighbor Mike said,
Lets trim some of your trees and bushes in your front yard.
So Mike went at it
and worked so hard....
And now we have some much needed trim and clean up done.
When his wife came home she said ,
Here, let me help you make things neat and tidy.
We worked for about 2 hours chatting and enjoying the sunshine....
While cleaning up the mess.
What can I say?
We have awesome next door neighbors!!!

Today I decided to do THROWBACK THURSDAY.
The photo is of my husband's Mom and Dad.
It was taken in about 1935 ..... unfortunately , no date on the picture.
The place is Nicaragua.
Dave's Mom was there as a private duty nurse of a Downs Syndrome child.
Dave's Dad was an Army Engineer doing a survey to see whether a canal could
be done through Nicaragua.
The government decided to put the canal through Panama instead.
These two met at a church in Nicaragua, fell in love and were married down there.
In fact they were married 3 times,
Once before the Nicaraguan government, once before the American government
and once before the church congregation.
I would say they were married for good!

I hope all of you in the U.S.
Except a few states, survived the time change to Daylight Savings Time.
I have to admit that I feel rather Rummy today.
How about a bright little daffodil to help your day along?
I saw this pretty Daffy on our walk a few days ago.
Now I feel better...
How about you?

I thought I would share a few photos from the year 2005.
My Hubby and I were working a Trade Show in New York City.
The City is such a fabulous place to photograph.
Here are a few from that year.
Across from the Ed Sullivan Theater.
Fascinating architecture and fire escapes where ever one looks.
Reflections everywhere.....people everywhere...
This is one of my all time favorites.
Such a great advertisement on the wall of a building.
It's always fun to dive back into the archives.

Our oldest granddaughter was "home" for the weekend.
She and her sister invited Hubby and I out for lunch yesterday.
What a fun and precious time we had.
It was great to catch up on life.
We hadn't seen Lauren since Christmas, so there was a lot of gabbing going on.
Love these girls with all my heart.,
And I love that they want to be with us too.

I just learned 1 hour ago that my dear friend Josefina just passed away.
My heart is aching.
She leaves behind a lovely daughter Kaylene and a Downs syndrome son
Isai, and her husband Miguel.
Continued prayers for the family.
Josefina loved the Lord and we know she is safe in the arms of the Lord.
I thought I would post a few photos of our Almond tree blossoms.
It means Spring is on the way
Even when it doesn't feel like it!
Hope springs eternal
Through the harbinger of blossoms.
Don't forget to enlarge the photos,
they looks so pretty full sized.
