Birthday gifts

LiLi had to show off her new sandals

Mark made this out of an old bed
It took me a while but I finally decided it would look good here

The enamel bowl came from Popster's grandma

This was so big & heavy that it had to be delivered by trailer
There was no changing my mind once I picked out a place for it

Father's day

I am so behind posting pictures on my blog........I keep getting shut out of my google account & it's the most annoying when it comes to being able to reset passwords etc.
Anyway enough said & here are some father's day pics
LiLi & Popster have found a special bond through music so I thought I'd look for some earlier pics of them.  I think this was taken when she had only been home a couple weeks This was on father's day

LiLi came up with the idea of making this as an end of year gift for her teacher

Flag Day Parade

Popster & Mollywere invited to march in the Burnt Hills Flag day parade so I went as well
 Molly decided to dress for the occasion

It was a beautiful night & so many people out watching it.  Molly strutted her stuff & loved every minute of it.

We marched for about a mile & then they had school buses to take us back to the parking lot.  Molly was not thrilled about getting on!
She did decide to sit back & chill once the ride started:)

Never forgotten

Not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts.............

Mother's day & rollerblades

It was a very quiet mother's day this year. Popster was still sick & the weather was cold & windy.  Jessie, LiLi & Tyler are playing a very competitive game of Sorry
There may have been some elbowing & yelling involved
I do believe from that expression LiLi is winning! The following weekend was much nicer & we were able to get out to do some much needed yard work.  Jessie stopped over to pick up her birthday present....only 2+ weeks late.
She wanted rollerblades so she could take Luna on the bike path

Whoops a little wobbly take-off!
& we're off
Don't take my picture
She has been going a lot with Luna & they do about 3+ miles every time.....Luna loves it.

The long, long, long ride home

Sunday morning we hung around drinking coffee & then went to breakfast at the diner down the street.....great food.
We decided to take a leisurely, scenic ride home & stopped in Poughkeepsie to do the walk across the Hudson.

It wasn't a very nice day with a cold wind coming off the water

See all the sculling boats.....they must have been cold
That is the longest freight train I've ever seen

No it's not......this one is!
I want to buy this house
We headed over the bridge to 9W which was going to be our scenic ride home
That's where we were walking
This is our second trip across the river(fourth if you count the walk) however, we had been riding for quite a bit when I commented that the places we were going by were not familiar.  Then I spotted a road sign that said 9W south!  "Ahem shouldn't we be going north"  Yes the driver......who shall remain nameless but it wasn't me......had taken a wrong turn!
This by the way is the Rip Van Winkle brid…
