Summer Time Fun !

Our Cabin away from Home!

At Murrels Inlet

Relaxing at the Beach!

This summer we spent 10 day's in South Carolina it was a Blast! We went to Myrtle Beach for the week of 4th of July.While we were there we took a day trip to Charleston. The kids had never been to Charleston so they really enjoyed going. We had a wonderful and relaxing time on vacation it was hard to leave. When we got back I repacked and went back to my mother's to help her pack up her Home of 20yrs so she could move into a New home.I was there 2weeks and it was all work and no play.But it made me glad to get home.I only wish I had taken Pictures of all those boxes we packed it was unreal at how many we packed! Now, it is back to band practice and camp and getting ready to start the new school year next week. BOY, the Summer has gown so fast!

Sylvi and Jon dressed and ready for this years Band Banquet! It is a semi-formal to formal event. And it is something they look forward to every year. This year was Jon's first time going and he was so excited to get to dress up! They had a great time and Sylvi even won the musician award for the 10th grade! (This was voted on by all the band members) So she was excited as well. They looked so pretty and handsome that I had to take lots of pictures after all if any of you have teens you know it is not every day you can get a picture of them much less dressed up! my babes are growing up fast!

"SWEET 16"

Sylvi turned 16 on Monday . It is so hard to believe it seems like yesterday we were celebrating her 1st birthday. Time really does fly bye in a moment. We had a family celebration on monday all thought as you can see even though school is only 4day left she had homework and test to study for.(Chemistry,and Algebra 2 what for no one!) I think the Birthday presents help to ease the pain. Of course Cake and Ice cream did not hurt!

Well, we ended up falling upon a litter of Golden Retrievers with the herding rescue and Sylvi having her love for animals and my weakness got one! And she is so cute! Sylvi named her 'Marley" and she is so far living up to the name.

Snowing in the Pines!

This Morning We awoke to Snow on the ground.So, I grabed the camera and took some pics. One good thing about Alabama Snow is it is usually melted by Noon time!

A Night At the Ringling Bros.!

For Family Night We went to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. It was a wonderful Show and We all enjoyed it.
I was only able to get a quick shot of Jon in our seats and Jones in Line to go in to the Show. But Sylvi was not going to have her picture taken! She was not to happy about the Animals being used
in the Show ! But that is our family Activist. I was glad she did not see the protesters or She would have wanted to join in! Jon on the other hand really enjoyed the show and was really into the people
being shot out of the rockets. Even Jones enjoyed the Night!
