Dom's Birthday

We had a get together for my son last weekend.  (I am behind on posts).

It was his 24th birthday and since he just bought his own home, we don't get to see him much. (sad face)

My daughter has just made me a Pinterest account and next on my agenda, is to learn Tumblr.

I would like to learn both of these and use them on my blog.  I am also getting a Smart Phone (probably an Iphone as I am an Apple girl!) in July.

Woo-hoo-----Maria is coming into the 21st century!  I guess it is about time!

College Graduation

It was my nephew's graduation from Trinity College this past weekend.  It was a beautiful ceremony and the rain held off.  But as soon as we got to his tent, the skies opened up.

First Trinity has the graduation ceremony.  Then there are literally about 100 tents down on the soccer field and kids/families get together to rent a tent/tables/chairs and have food brought in.  This way, all the kids see each other and their families and it is one HUGE party!

Thank you, Thomas, for inviting me....it was a great day.

Prayers for Moore, OK

Here in CT, we don't know exactly what is going on, but it is not going to be good.

God Bless those people in OK!

And Kansas (yesterday) and whatever happens with these terrible tragedies.

Again, no words..... just prayers....

And it is a WIN....

....For Merida (Brave)!!!!!  (My fave Disney Princess)

You can google it if you don't know what I'm talking about it, but Disney heard the backlash from parents, etc and decided to change her back to her original, wonderful, spectacular self!!!!!    So Happy!!

I can't wait to see her in September!

We are home

Obviously, we are home from our vacation.  It was a great time, even though hubby got sick at the end.   Naples is such a beautiful city and we really love it down there.

I am not sure if you can see some of the dolphins that swam by Lowdermilk Beach one day.  They stayed around for about 7 minutes!

It is hard to see them in these pictures.  My i-pad doesn't zoom (at least I don't know how to zoom).  

Kentucky Derby

The hubby and I went to bet today!  It was our first time actually going to an off track betting center to place a bet!

I have:

Normandy Invasion
Lines of Battle
Java's War

(I went with a theme!)

We shall see how I do.

I won't tell my hubby's picks, unless he wins!

(Thank you, Big Dick, for getting me interested in the Kentucky Derby, years and years ago!)
