More vacation pictures

 The first night we were there we had one son and his family that hadn't arrived.  We took this picture that night.
This was taken when everyone was there.  Not sure why the old folks looked so washed out.
And here we all are.  Each little family in it's own little group.  Every night we got the kids out of the pool or home from the beach and took showers to head out for dinner.  One night we grilled and another night we had fresh fish tacos made by our SIL the chef.  We ended up eating out early every night and found that was a great time avoiding the crowds. 

You may note that our youngest son isn't with us.  It would not be a pleasant trip for him or us if he did go.  He has his own schedule and needs his own space.  Not to say that he wasn't calling three times a day with his current drama.  On Sunday we had a major blowup and we are still rebounding.  He couldn't understand why we didn't want him to move a girl he just met into his condo that he just moved back in.  We are talking less than 24 hours of knowing her.  She is still married and has a 2 year old.  So he has moved out of the condo again and has moved in with her parents.  She still lives with her soon to be x in another town.  Does that make any sense.  No it doesn't.  He is so uncapable of making good choices.  But, I must say this time we are going for the tough love for sure.  He is on his own.  We have talked to him but we are backing away. 

We have had some positive showings.  Just wish I had some news for you.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods with the crazy weather.

Meet Hank the Tank

Can you see him.  He's not very big.  This is his second full day of living with us.  How do you think Piper likes him.  They are having so much fun.  He is rough with Piper.  But Piper is such a gentle soul.  So far Hank is quite the pup.  He potties outside.  When he can't he potties on a pee pad.  He did that all on his own.  Sleeping is going well.  I couldn't take the howling  when I put him in a crate, so he sleeps in a post office bin.  Hah.  We had so much mail they put it in this big ole plastic bin.  So I put a blanket in it.  He never cried when I put him in there last night.  A couple of times during the night.  Soooo....I tell him he is okay and I put my arm in the box.  He licks my hand and goes back to sleep.  He has gone all night both nights without an accident.  I know that this all could change.
He is two months and a Chorkie.  His mama was 6 pounds and a Yorkie.  His daddy was a four pound Cihuauhau .  I didn't see his dad.  I asked his owner if she was tricking me and he was a Dobbie.  She reassured me , hah
I couldn't wait to share the news any longer.  Yep, we are crazy.....our adult kids think so anyway.

Do you like the way we blocked the staircase.

Back from the beach

The title is a little funny, considering I never went to the beach.  The house that we stayed at has a private beach that you can walk to.  All the kids and grands went almost everyday.  Hubby and I never went.  It's not that we don't like the beach.  We got to enjoy the water while dining out and on a pirate ship.  I have tons of photos to share of our trip.  I will post a few here and there so I don't bore you.
We had a great time.  The house is perfect for our family.  My SIL and BIL are part owners.  If you ever need a great home to stay in at Hilton Head, I can give you info.  This is our families' third visit.  Thanks Mary Ann and Bill.
The pool in the back yard is always the center of all the fun.  We had some major water gun fights.  They blasted me in my clothes.  So I got my suit on and blasted them back.  Yep, I got in the pool.
Eating out every night except for one was fun for everyone. 
  I guess Blogger isn't going to let me post my pictures today.  So more another time.  This is our crew, minus the little guy on the right, before we boarded the Pirate Ship.
I'll be back later with lots more.

Grammy Time

Going to be on a bloggy break for awhile spending time with my littles. So excited.
I want to apologize that I haven't responded to all your heartfelt comments.  When my Kindle was working I could email you.  It won't charge up.  And since someone else has my new Kindle it is too hard with the computer.  My computer won't let me email back.
But I do appreciate all your happy thoughts.  I may be able to stop in but maybe not.  I will be back online in a couple of weeks for sure.
