Family, Friends & VGNO


I hope everyone had a great week! We had a blast with a lot of old friends over the 4th! The neighborhood parade was as fun as ever. Delaney & the neighbor girl decorated Jake's stroller, Delaney's bike and even Dave's bike. We were all so festive!

I picked up my niece on Monday, so she could stay with us a few days. My sister-in-law came the next day, to stay for a few days, then take her wonderful daughter home. They'll be back in a week & a half. The Wonderful Niece is coming up to attend the University of Portland School of Nursing in the Fall. There are all sorts of college related things she's doing this Summer, so we get to see her more than ever. We're very excited to have her closer to us. We all went to the zoo again this week. It's so fun to see Jake enjoy the animals. And this time, Sam the baby elephant was much closer, so Jake got to laugh at him as he walked around. I guess that little toddler stumbling is even funny to them!

We've got friends coming over tonight for dinner and then I'm working in the morning at the scrapbook store. I'm excited to work since we have a digital camera course starting tomorrow and I can listen in & hopefully learn a lot! I'm stopping by Ann's Virtual Girls' Night Out as soon as she's ready to party! I may not be able to visit a lot of you until Sunday, but look out for a late comment or too, that will be me!

Enjoy your weekend!

Aww, I bet your little munchkins just loved the parade - I remember neighborhood parades when I was little and I adored them. Unfortunately, we don't seem to have them in the neighborhood I live in now, boo :( Oh well, happy VGNO to you all the same! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
