The Count-Down has Begun!

The count-down to the Rooster's Return has begun.  We aren't 100% sure when he will be home but we have a round-about guess and so we made a trip over to Savannah's downtown to The Paris Market where they have all sorts of fun things to look at and want to take home with you.  The jar on the right (the tall one) is one of the things that wanted to come home with us and I could not tell it no! So basically we are moving marbles from one jar to the other with 2 big ones for the 2 final days of the count down.  We did end up making an afternoon of the trip and wandered around for a bit and stopped and got coffee and a snack at a coffee shop down there.
The marbles that were picked from the buckets of joy.
A view from the top. The top of our parking garage, the kids always want to park up here. Quite frankly I don't mind at all, I like the view as much as they like the idea!
I discovered this store (The Paris Market) has a few bucket-fulls of marbles, or as I like to call them 'buckets of joy'.
This walking elephant was quite cute, we sent him down probably 15 times before we got enough of him.  I could have adopted him and brought him home with us.

A Saturday Afternoon Picnic

When asked by her friend what is your favorite thing to do? Ruby replied, "I don't know, right now having picnics on a Saturday Afternoon."

A Picture

Every time I see this picture I can't help but smile, thought I would share

Happy Sunday!

Aunt Mary and Uncle Jeff's

We were lucky enough to be close to Aunt Mary and Uncle Jeff this summer too.  We weren't there very long but we managed to pack as much fun stuff in as we could!
We spent the 4th of July there (when I think of the 4th I will forever think of Mary and Jeff and Lander, I can't help it, Mary and Jeff are part of what makes our 4th of July the 4th of July).
Uncle Jeff took the kids fishing where they both caught their very first fish, and 2nd and 3rd and 4th and ... the fish were apparently biting faster than Uncle Jeff could get the worms on the hooks!
We (or rather Ruby and Aunt Mary) made cupcakes.
We did some front porch sitting.
Played at the park where we saw that crazy moss growing in the river there and took a walk around the park on another day right about the time the sun was going down.
And of course there was lots of talking and coffee drank. What can I say? It's what we do, it's what we enjoy!

At the end of the summer we of course had to go home, but this summer was spent with people we love and enjoy being around.
