It's to quiet !!!

The girls left Tues. morning early, I kept busy all day so I would not think about them being gone as much. Why is saying "goodbye" always so hard? The house is back in order and the laundry is all caught up and it is very QUIET around here.

This third picture is taken with our oldest cat, Sarah, she is 23 years old, the last of her family. When we lived in the Keys I rescued her mother from the shelter, she found a few lovers before I could get her to the vet....she had 2 boys and 2 girls, one male went to a cousin in Miami, we kept the rest. Now Sarah is the last one alive.

The fourth picture was taken at Wild Adventure, after the train ride through the part of the park where they keep the animals you can feed the giraffes, they love carrots. You really need to hold them up a little higher unless you want giraffe slim in your hair. Can we say "Yuck" here?

We went to the park two days in a row, first day was to ride the rides, see the animals, go on the nature walk. The second day was spent at the water park and on one ride that we all voted to be our favorite, rode it several times, a log that went up high and then down through water and into water that sprayed real high and then fell down on you, needless to say we were glad we had our swim suits on. It was fun watching "first timers" hit the water.
Blogger did not load the pictures in the order that I wanted so the second two should have been first and the first two next, oh well ! The first two are M. picking blue berries with grandpa and M. and myself on our way to church Father's day. Of course the BEST PART for M. was she was able to go back to the stables and ride "Goldie" and this time the man took the lead rope off, talk about excited----that is all we heard about and probably all anyone else will hear about when they ask M. about her vacation. But then isn't that what it's all about, making great memories. No wonder the bible says, "Blessed is the man whose quiver is full", speaking of having Lots of children. CHILDREN ARE A BLESSING FROM THE LORD

I was thinking about you yesterday and wondering if the girls were still there. Great photos! I love those water rides, too. Especially if it's a really hot day.
