Jason's Deli

Every Tuesday night Elwood rollerblades down to Jason's Deli
for supper with some guys.  
It's a nine mile round trip.  He loves it. 

On certain Tuesdays, I can join him on my bike.  
A great ride and fun time together.

Weekend Sleepover

Bryan & Eraina were in Florida for 4 days
 and we enjoyed these treasures!

Luke is growing so fast! 

I love, love, love the cousins reading to their 
younger cousins & siblings.  
Thanks Lucy! 

Luke was enjoying playing with Liv & AJ  
and Grampa!

It's been amazingly warm and so the kids have still been swimming. 
Middle of October.  

I will admit they don't stay in all that long. 

Lucy & Anders with their amazing tower & Road.

Louisville, Kentucky

The MOPS convention was held in Louisville this year. 
I decided to go.

I started out my weekend visiting David & Susan.
 Such a fun afternoon with someone who has know me my whole life.... and isn't related!  

Then on to the Convention where I met these wonderful gals
 from our MOPS & MomsNext in Frisco.

One of the gals made all these smashing bags for us!  
Love them! 

Eraina's friend was doing one of  the workshops.  
Kay Wills Wyma talked on " Taming the Youth entitlement" 
A good course. Now to read her books.  :) 

Of course we did see a bit of the sites of Louisville
The Colonel was so real looking as
 he welcomed us to Kentucky!

Our last evening ~ with a lovely supper out. 
A wonderful weekend with some wonderful women.

Sunday, my flight did not leave until 6pm
 so I spent the day exploring Louisville. 

Saw the Gallop to Glory  

Tribute to the Kentucky Derby Jockey Winners

Loved being on the Ohio River.  

The River has flooded to this level!  

 Just Beautiful!

Visitors to Louisville. 
Charles Dickens and me!  

Incredible stonework.  

I loved this staircase. 

The troll under the bridge.  :) 

There were statues of horses everywhere.

The wonderful roses Elwood had waiting for me when I returned.  

It's nice to be home!

Happy B'day Elwood

To my Amazing Husband! 

Today is for him ~ an amazing guy.
For stuff that he loves and still wants to try

For goals that he's reached and things that he's done. 
For what makes him laugh ~ for ways he has fun.

For how hard he works and how much he cares
For being a man who's honest and fair.

For all that he is and all that he can does
Today is the day we celebrate him!!!

This 'n That

Karin & I are hanging out on Thursdays. 
This week we went to Denton to see the American Brides Dress Display. 
from the early 1800 - 2014.  

Soccer takes up a lot of Saturdays
 We are thankful for our tent so we can have some shade. 

Moving from one field to another. 

Abby's on the Pink Lemonade Team and Lucy is on the Lions. 
Way to go girls. 

Then we watch baseball.  
Larson has gotten the game ball a couple of times 
because of his great playing. Way to go Larson

Sometimes we just play board games.

If you are in Kelowna, check out the sign at the Orchard Park Mall.
Yup, that's Yuriko!

Or in Winnipeg, buy these chips. 
Yup, my nephew Kyle took that picture.  

Our famous relatives! :)
