Did you know???

...that we've slid full-speed into summer?


...that it gets kind of crazy around here in the summer?

So much so that I haven't had time to do a
halfway decent job of blogging about any of it.
Neither have some of my other blogging friends, I've noticed.

...that the flowers I whined about mentioned earlier are gorgeous right now?

...that July is National Ice Cream Month?

We get all happy about that even before we
get through the door of the ice cream shop!

Yes, we're sliding fast around here too. I am guilty of blog-neglect too.
Your grass is so green and your flowers so pretty. We are so hot and dry here right now, your pictures are refreshing.
Love the family picture of you all.

LOOK! AT! YOUR! GRASS!

We just don't see that over here. We get different shades of brown according to the seasons. We've been in drought for years and even though we've had some recent rain, we are amazed at your grass.

You can all come romp in our grass any day! In fairness, it got a little extra fertilizer this year because Lee was doing a major battle on the dandelions. It has been growing like gangbusters, but he did mow it shortly after that. :-)

And I'm just about to indulge in a big bowl of Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk, in honor of the month and all...don't forget the Ben & Jerry's Stressbusters Diet!

Could I be one of those bloggy friends who have Slipped away from blogging this summer!!! ;) Crazy times I tell you!

Your road trip sounds great! It will go fast for sure! Your kiddos will do great, I brought school workbooks with math and dry erase boards to practice writing words associated with each state...so Michigan would be Automobile, Lake Superior ect....

Yes! That Mickey is right out front of Comerica Park so you will get your wish! And the recommendations that I have, if you are staying in Downtown Chicago then for sure you should do a boat ride with them in the city! Those are such a blast!

Hope you have safe travels and look forward to the pictures when you return...and PS, those flowers are awesome!!! ;)

Oh the joys of slip and slides. If I wouldn't hurt myself I'd try it again. Have a great summer!

It was 106 on my deck yesterday Tracy and that's on the lake side of the house where it's typically 10 degrees cooler than the front side! Thank goodness there's a cool front coming. And thank goodness my grandchildren weren't here for this heat wanting me to take them outside! blessings, marlene
