Labor Day Weekend Family Time

Lauren surprised us and decided to fly home with the girls for Labor Day weekend and of course, we were very excited she did.  It's always great to have those baby girls home, the little ones and the big one.  They are growing so fast and we want to treasure every moment of their little lives.  Parker is now 2 and 1/2 and Iris is just over 4 months, so I wanted to share their visit with all of … [Read more...]

Charming Apalachicola, FL

As a final part of my recent coastal vacation, today I'm sharing the charming town of Apalachicola, FL.  As I mentioned earlier, the only time I've visited this town was 5 years ago with my friend, Vicki and it was a quick drive through the little coastal ton and a drive out to St. George.  It has always stuck with me as being such a quaint town and I can see why people love it here.  It doesn't … [Read more...]

Have You Had Your Colonoscopy?

I hope that this subject won't cause my dear readers to completely lose it on me and not stop by to read today, but I thought the subject was important enough to talk about. The older I get, the more that aging and health issues become even more of a priority to me and my friends, so I figured it might be something you'd all be interested in as well. My real life friends and I talk about these … [Read more...]

Family Time in New Orleans

Last weekend, my sister and I took mom with us for a visit to see Lauren and the babies in New Orleans before she had to go back to work.  Let me just say, thank you all for enjoying and liking my family.  It sure makes it easy for me to share this personal family stuff on my blog when you all respond so well to it.  I don't want to bore anyone with family pictures and all, but you all seem to … [Read more...]

Great Southern Roadtrip: Marietta, GA

It's summer and traditionally that means that people travel.  A lot.  I have been on my share of road trips over the years and there's really nothing more exciting to me than packing my bags, hopping in the car, and heading out on a fun road trip, to a known or unknown destination. I tend to like to travel just a few hours by car and if it's over 8 hours, definitely prefer to fly, but going to a … [Read more...]

Zoo Atlanta: A Family Visit

It's been about a 100 years since I went to the zoo here in Atlanta.  I'm not sure it was called Zoo Atlanta the last time I went, but Grant Park zoo was what we called it growing up.  It's changed. A lot.  I'm one of those not-born-here Atlantans, who considers myself a native by the fact that I've been here since I was 6 years old.  That's a long time.  Anyone that's lived here since the 60's … [Read more...]

Family and Baby Time

For those of you still experiencing problems viewing my blog, with the skinny column to the left, we still haven't found out exactly what is going on. I have a tech guy that helps me with problems and it seems to be only happening on some versions of Firefox and on Chrome.  Have any of you tried clearing your browser cache to see if this helps? Sometimes that resets things back to the way they … [Read more...]
