Headed for home....

10 days away from home is a lot.
Family reunion was great.
Temperatures were great.
I loved seeing the color GREEN again.

I loved spending time with family.
Time to say good-bye.
See you next time.
I can hardly wait to get off the plane and see this face!  :)

Family Reunion

This weekend was the White/Hipp Family Reunion.  There was a lot of food, fun and silliness! Our first event was on Friday night.  We had a picnic in the park.  There was a blues band playing at the park that night.
Brother and Sisters!
Mark, Marlene and Karen
Quilts were used as backdrops for everything.  This is one that my late grandma made.  As you can see, we can never stay serious.  :)

Second event was a cookout at another park.  We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers at this one. 

Love this veggie idea!
 Final event was an afternoon to look at family heirlooms and pictures.  The day ended with a banquet and a time of sharing stories.

 My mom made this quilt.  We used it as a backdrop for family pictures.

We can NEVER stay serious!
My aunt was a workhorse!  Fran was the main planner for this family reunion.  Lots of work!  Thanks Fran!  :)
Uncle Ray's t-shirt pretty much sums up the weekend!

Why is it so hard???? (Rant Warning!)

One year ago today I started this blog. 
One would think after a year that I would have it all figured out. 
I don't. 
Lately all it does is make me feel guilty for not posting on a regular basis. 
I keep telling myself that I will do week when my schedule eases up. 
Next week comes and goes and nothing changes. 
I am a stay at home mom. 
Doesn't that mean that I have lots of time on my hands?  (I get that a lot.) 

One year.
365 days. 
91 posts.
Averages out to once every 4 days.
Not great.
Not terrible either. 
Next year's goal?
How about once every 3 days?
(Baby steps.)

Thank you to my faithful readers!
You make me smile.
You've encouraged me.
I'll see 3 days.  ;-)

The End

Summer is Here

Arizona dust storm.  One minute the sky was fine and I was getting ready to head to the store.  Before I even got out the door everything changed.  And yes, I know my photography skills are sketchy sometimes but the sky was REALLY this color!
