Monkey see-monkey do. Victoria, my youngest great granddaughter sees the ladies of her family with fancy coffee's from starbucks, mocha's etc.  So while at a family picnic she filled a plastic tumbler half full of gravel, stuck a stick in it... 

 Handed it to me and said, "here's your coffee, Mimi." Of course I had to play along and said a quick prayer before putting my lips on the stick straw pretending a long slurp, then saying, Ohhh, thank you. This is delicious. Her comeback set me straight as she gave me 'that' look. "It's only rocks Mimi!" Love that kid!

 Great Granddaughter Julia, age 13 conquered her fear of singing in front of a group, and did a super job of singing in front of over two hundred delighted family and friends. Way to go Julia!

 Here Miss Victoria is running ahead of her grandma and I in the beautiful wooded grounds of her great grandpa an his wife.

 At this outing they hired a gentleman and his beautiful horses to give wagon rides around the property.

 This picture was taken at Boulevard Park here in Bellingham one evening when three of my girls and I had spent the day together.
Something so romantic about lovers in the sunset. 

 That same day we went to a bar in Old Town Bellingham for supper. I had driven past the Waterfront Seafood and Bar countless times but had never eaten there. This building is the last one in town that sits on piling over the water of the bay. I saw a very big seal while we were sitting at our table waiting for our order. It had long whiskers. Maybe it was a sea lion?

This is my plate. Prawns and salad instead of fries. I thought it would be a little healthier but believe me they loaded the salad with cheese, olives, croutons etc. It was all very good. I am hungry for prawns again and Old Country Buffet has a special...maybe I will get over there soon.

Here is my youngest great grandson, Colton Ray´╗┐ with his beautiful mama, Aimee. This little guy waved Bye-bye to me and he was only four months old then. Can you believe that?
That's all folks!
God bless

gettin' around

 For those who are interested, my friend John passed away on July 16th. Not from cancer but from an antibiotic he was prescribed. Please do the research before you take them.
My daughter Cyndra took me for a ride a few weeks ago to Oak Harbor here in Washington State. This picture is Deception Pass Bridge. The view is beautiful but the waters are treacherous.
 Another shot of the water and cliff side.
 This was taken at Fort Eby at the gun battery. It was a cloudy day but still beautiful. I love how the tall grass bends and sways in the breeze.
We had lunch at a nice  cafe on the water at Coupeville. Parking was non existent so we had to walk a ways.
 Cute little toadstool in my yard growing out of the beauty bark. Either this one is very poisonous or the mice haven't found it yet.
 I thought this was unique. When I first saw it I thought it had a bright yellow center but when examining it more closely I could see the sun was shining through the back.
 Here it is more closely.
 Three of my girls and I went to Wood's Coffee last week. We have done that a few times and it is so wonderful to have time with them. After the sun went down we came back to my house and had popcorn and a super visit with lots of laughs. The Lord only knows how much I needed that!
 Some of you may recognize the Lady Washington. She's a beautiful sailing ship and most welcome on our Bellingham Bay.
I haven't been blogging because I just haven't had the heart to do so. I will try to visit soon.
Love you all.
