Grandson Elijah and his Vision Basketball team played their last game of the season this morning [a bright and early 8:00 a.m. game]. That’s him in the blue holding the ball.
He really enjoys the game and played very well this season. Made lots of points today.
Elijah’s biggest fans: his Grandpa, cousin Knox, his mom, sister Shelby, aunt Kelly [and me, of course].
We all enjoyed breakfast at Hardees after the game.
Another beautiful day to be outside. Knox had a great time bouncing on the trampoline.
Neil is in the process of tearing down his shed/man cave/RC airplane hangar/former woodworking shop. He made lots of progress on the roof today. He can’t wait to get a new building for his airplane and woodworking stuff.
I could not have ordered up a more awesome day than it was today.
The geese were circling over our house, trying to find a leader. Headed back to Canada, maybe? They think it’s spring.
A day like today calls for blowing bubbles.
Knox is starting to get the hang of it. Bubbles = smiles!
Neil has run across some of our children’s toys as he’s cleaned out the attic in the shed. This Snoopy dog pull toy originally belonged to Knox’s mommy, Kelly, and he fell in love with it. Its ears are long gone, but its legs still work. Grandpa attached a string to it so Knox could pull it, and off he went up the sidewalk.
There’s a big patch of these pretty crocuses sprouting in our neighbor’s yard across the street.
Knox and Snoopy are buds now.
He took this toy home with him. I’m glad Snoopy could find  new love in his old age.
Kelly treated us to supper at D’Angelo’s [Authentic Wood-Fired] Brick Oven Pizza tonight. Neil and I enjoyed this place a few years ago, and then it closed, much to our disappointment. But it recently re-opened in the same little place and is just one of the many mom and pop restaurants in our neighborhood that we really enjoy. Delicious! Even Knox loved the half of the pizza with the spinach.
Kelly made treats again and brought them over to share after we stuffed our faces with pizza ~ chocolate covered strawberries, oranges, bananas, and peanut butter filled Ritz crackers. Totally yummalicious! Loved spending this gorgeous day with my sweet peeps! Happy Saturday, y’all!!


  1. A great day start to finish!! Enjoyed every minute!! Love the HUNKY DORY scrabble pic :)

  2. I like the banner, too! Looks like y'all had a great weekend. Would love to have seen Elijah's game. Looks like it went better than the one we saw. :)
