Front Yard

Every year we gather with our friends for the three horse races. The Kentucky Derby, The Preakness and The Belmont. We share the race drink, The Mint Julep, The Brown-eyed Susan and the Belmont Bell. ANDDDDDDDDDDDDD - we play croquet, in the front yard (of a very nice neighborhood) We get lots of honks, stares and looks from passer-byers. BUT.WE.DON'T. CARE...we play in the front yard, drinking our drinks and it is AWESOME !!!

Till next year......



Growing up to fast

Jaycee - my first born grand daughter - will be going into HIGH SCHOOL this next year. Time is going too quickly and my grand babies are growing too fast....

Congrats to Miss Jaycee - we are proud of the young lady you have become. You will go far - shoot for the moon sweet girl !!



BS Weekend

This year Wheatie and I have decided to go another route with our usual "All Ball's" time and spend that week with just the kids.

So to have a little brother/sister (BS) time, we opted for a long weekend. We went down to Granbury and spent some quality time together.......fishing, eating, shopping, wine walking, laughing, eating, shopping, eating



March On

Wheatie aka 'Pops' and Annabelle have a very special bond. They are both my March 11th Birthday babies. Miles and years apart - these two know how to party!!

Mardi Gras

Each year around Chad and Jaycee's birthdays we get together to celebrate. This year we had a good friend invite us to stay at her rental home in Galveston. It was the first weekend of Mardi Gras and it was a blast.....the real party doesn't start till this next weekend....but we had a great time.

A quaint house built in the 1920's. Totally flipped and it was GREAT !!

Last spring Wheatie and I lost our hot tub and pool to a typical Texas storm. Insurance paid us for the damage and we opted not to replace the pool and to upgrade the hot tub. What a wonderful decision....
Wheatie has been working really hard - all by himself and did an UH-AMAZING job.....last night the hot tub was christened.
