Joe's mum and step-father came to visit.
They were here for Joe's birthday on Sunday
and they left on Tuesday afternoon after I went to work.
It was wonderful to visit with them!
We don't get to see them very often as they live in Florida
and we are up here in Massachusetts.
I made strawberry shortcake from scratch for Joe's birthday.
I made the biscuits and I even whipped the cream!
Joey had never had it before....he liked it!
It's not very often that Joe and I get a picture of us together.
Joey took this one while we were walking the beach.
I got a new haircut and a color on Saturday.
I hadn't had it done in quite some time.
A few weeks ago I picked up a braided rug at Target.
It fits perfectly under my new kitchen table.
Verne loves playing on it.
The wild beach roses are in riotous bloom.
The whole island smells like roses and the salty Atlantic.
