Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

A Trip Uptown

One recent summer day, Gloria and I had free tickets to a show at the local children's theater.  We attend shows there quite often, but I decided to make a day of it.  

For one thing, it's summer time and we needed an "adventure."  

For another thing, auditions for the next season of American Idol were being held across the street from our destination and there were lots of warnings about parking and traffic woes.



Step one of the adventure:  Avoid traffic and parking woes along with steep parking fees by riding the light rail uptown.



Step two: Read every word of the family guide before the show begins.  Then enjoy the show.


Step three:  Fill Momma's pink Vandy tote bag with library books to fill one's time for the next few days.  Then play on the letters outside.




This quote is so true for both of us..."If reading one good book is fun, reading four must be quadruple the pleasure.  Two hard covers and two paperbacks carelessly snuggle about me in the hammock."  Just wish we had a hammock...

 Step four:  Enjoy a yummy lunch before catching the light rail back out of town.


It was a perfect day...just the kind of day I enjoy with my girl!
