Autumn is here and I am thrilled! It's cooling off outside, football is back, fall decor is beginning to beautify front porches, and Christmas adornments aren't far behind! Life is gooooood!
Our summer was great! It wasn't quite as hot as usual (Yay!), and we attended some very lovely and fun events. As an official end to summer, I want to share some additional events that were never posted for one reason or another.
First off, our sweet niece Brandy graduated from the University of North Texas. Yay, Brandy! Congrats to her.
Here's Brandy playing with a California Chrome hat that her Mom made for a Kentucky Derby contest. Turned out, California Chrome won the race and Linda won the contest!
Brandy and her Mom--my sister, Linda.
(Most of you already know Linda is my sister.)
Geo and I also stopped by Lake Murray in Oklahoma one day. We wanted to check it out because some friends had gone RVing up there. We weren't able to go though because we were out of town. Much to our surprise, several of our friends were still there so we ended up going on a boat ride!
Here's 1/2 of Geo, and all of Joe and Tom
Talk about having your ducks in a row!
Well, almost, I see a couple rebels on the end.
A cute name for a boat that's obviously
owned by Oklahoma and Florida fans,
Sooner or Gator.
The water in Lake Murray is beautiful!
On the 4th of July, we took Preston to the Cheesecake Factory for his birthday dinner. Actually, it was a birthday lunch.
He turned 15!
Later that evening, we
headed out to watch fireworks.
A selfie while waiting for the fireworks to start.
Preston, Triston & Geo look good
but what a goofy face I have!
And I was born with it!!!!
Last, but not least, a long-overdue, get together with the girls! I haven't seen some of these running buddies in ages!
Cindi, Faye, Me, Suzette, Karen & Linda
We met up for lunch at The Greenhouse Restaurant and Bar in Denton, and ended up having a spur-of-the-moment slumber party at my house! Linda had to go home, and Karen could only stay for a little while, but the rest of the gals spent the night.
Unfortunately, we did have an injury. Faye hurt her foot. I'm NOT saying that we were dancing and carrying on out back in the RV at the time because, according to George, "What happens in the RV, stays in the RV!" (and he was there) but I will say that we all had a VERY GOOD TIME!
Faye went to the doctor a couple days later, and it turns out that she broke a couple of bones in her foot. OUCH! That was the beginning of July and she is better now but still recovering!
George had to pull her back to
the house in the garden cart.
We hope you finish healing ASAP Faye!
Now, on to Autumn!
See ya soon folks.
