Getting Springy

We are having some beautiful days.  Sunshine and warm temps.  I just had to stop and get some flowers.
The above picture was a mistake.  I thought I was taking a picture of something else.  But, hey, I like it.

We had another birthday.  Our oldest granddaughter turns 11 this week-end.  She had a birthday party with her friends last night.  When we got to their house today Doodle was there.  They have been best friends for 11 years.  I watched them both as babies.
I haven't even covered what all we did last week-end.  Doodle's school had a carnival that the three girls and I went to.  We had so much fun.  The pictures are on my phone.  We also celebrated Doodles brother's birthday.  I will post about that later too.  And then my Mom turned 87 this week.  I meant her for lunch yesterday.  She drove to meet me.  She is amazing.
I just love snuggle time with my three girls.  After the birthday party Mr. Cozy and I went to Applebees.  We had to go let Rudy (puppy) out twice today as his family were gone all day.  Then we went to Goose's soccer game.  One of them.  She was asked to join a travel team so she had two games today.  I know I am her grandma but she is awesome.  It isn't just me other.  We try hard to be humble but the other parents are as excited as we are about her ability..  She is pretty tiny out there in the field.  The picture from the back doesn't look like it,  but she is small.  The one picture was taken at half time.  We looked out in the field and there she stood just starring at the ball and the goal.  No one else was on the field.  Hah, she was ready to go again.  Someone kicked a ball to her and she blocked it about midfield.  It was so funny because the ball went in the goal .  That's was after she had just made two straight goals.  She does pass the ball a lot.
While Goose was playing soccer her birthday sister climbed a tree and fell out of it.  She fell so hard that she totally ripped her shorts......from front to back.  It looked like  a skirt from the front but the back was gone.  She had to wear shorts of her sisters.  There were tears and some bruises but she held it together. 
This wasn't the only accident this week-end.  Miss Mabel was running from Rudy as he always bites her heels.  She ran full speed to the couch and her foot went down the crack of the sofa and she cut her foot.  She had to have stitches.    Never a dull moment here.
Meanwhile my Colorado babies are busy.  E. was dancing in competition all week-end.  Grammy is going out there in 10 days to watch her in a competition.  Her ornery brother caught a huge frog.  I will try to post that.  I sure have some catching up to do on here.  Maybe I will get more posted soon.
Yesterday I was gone from 11 til 11 driving all over the state.  So with that and all of this today, I am going to turn in.  Yep it's busy time and so thankful that I can be a part of it all.  Happy Palm Sunday my friends.

Golly, it IS Palm Sunday! This year is flying by. Spring has well and truly arrived in our yard--the only thing about Spring Break that wasn't perfect was no trip to see the Grands! Oh well--that's what summer is for ;)

So many fun adventures with your family. Love that picture of you with your grands. I'm glad birthday sister wasn't hurt when she fell. Yippee for spring weather. I'm so glad to have packed away the snow shovels.

You have certainly been busy and nothing better than time with family! Love the pink chair.

Julia said...

Oh my... all the birthday and coming and going does keep you very busy. You have an amazing mom, and you are probably a chip of the old block like they say...

I had to laugh out loud at your granddaughter ripping her shorts in the tree fall. I'm glad she only had her pride hurt and a few bruises. I'm so glad she didn't broke an arm or a leg or anything else.

Take care and have a blessed week.
