Cousin Felicity???

 Freda:  "Floyd.  FLOYD.  Wake up you old goat!"
 "We have a visitor"
Floyd:  "What's up woman!  You know I need to see the insides of my eyelids in the afternoon."
 Freda:  " This is Felicity.  She's from cousin Fergie's side of the family.  I think that makes her our 2nd cousin twice removed.  Or something like that!"
 Felicity:  "Oh hello Floyd.  It took me ages to get here.  Somehow I managed to get stuck in New Orleans during Mardi Gras!"
 Freda:  "Well I never!  I find that hair-do quite interesting!   What do you think Floyd?"  I don't recall anyone in our family having "dreadlocks"!  Is that what they're called?"
 Floyd:  "Freda you need to stop being judgemental.  I find her quite refreshing!"

Blustery day

 More pics found on my camera.  These are from the Colonie park on a very windy day.  We were bundled up as the wind blew us around.

 There's a little green showing on the trees

 The river had whitecaps that day!

 I love looks like a painting!  It's taken from the little covered bridge

Saratoga Park

 These were taken on a sunny but cool weekend a couple weeks ago.  We're in the middle of one of the coldest springs ever.  It came early & we've had some beautiful warm days but then it turns so cold & windy!  Very extreme changes......Thurs we ate dinner on the patio & it was 75 degs.  Sunday & yesterday it was barely 50 degs with 20 mph winds & we were bundled up in layers, gloves & hats trying to play golf!  Crazy!

 Every time we go to the park we find a different area to explore

Random photos

 I started going through my albums & found some that were never uploaded
 See the woodpecker busy at work

 One of those shots I take & am not sure why so I play with the post processing

 I just love the sky in this one

Mother's day bike ride

LiLi had a bad fall from her bike while learning to ride when she was younger & didn't want to try it anymore.  Jessie & I have been working on her the last couple years to get her riding a bike......every kid should know how to ride a bike!
On Mother's day we started our usual "spiel" & what do you know she said she would try it.  We made her sign on the dotted line & we were off to the store in the blink of an eye before she could change her mind.  We picked out some really cool bikes but she wanted this "plain jane no frills" one.  She even took the streamers off the handlebars!
Thank god for Jessie & Tyler running along on either side of her so she didn't fall

She's getting it!
"By jove I think she's got it"

This look on her face was worth every penny I spent!
We had resorted to bribery when she was getting frustrated.  Told her we would all ride bikes over to Marcellas for ice cream.
What a motley crew we were. Mark, Tyler & I were riding bikes.  Jessie, with Molly on a leash, was running along LiLi so she stayed out of the middle of the street & didn't fall.  Popster & Dani drove over.
Here we were. Wearing a couple layers because it was so cold & windy ordering ice cream?
We were the only ones sitting outside eating ice cream cones
Yes.......she ate the whole thing!!!  Bike riding is a lot of work!

Jessica's b'day

Last weekend we celebrated Jessica's 21st birthday.....can you believe that?
LiLi had to play the piano
I spent forever trying to upload a video but I gave up!

Can you tell this girl does not like to be the center of attention

 LiLi wanted curly hair for school so Meghan french braided it for her
