Happy Birthday Stefanie!

Family life is many things
And one of the nicest joys it brings
Is having a daughter as dear as you
Who's thought of in a special way
Not only on a special day
But warmly and with love
The whole year through!
Happy Birthday Stef!

Oh what a perfect day!  22 preschoolers, an Easter egg hunt, friends and family, prizes and treats, the warmth of the sun, bunny helpers and 'Big Bunny'.  A perfect party!

St. Patrick's Day!
A wee bit o' corned beef on a green hard roll! Bryan's doing it right in SLC! He's cooked his corned beef, made his colcannon and carrots and feeding his friends a wee bit o' Ireland
on Spring Break!
He's making his Irish Grandmother proud!

Roger's Sister, Susie, came out from OH for the weekend. We had a girls' night sleepover! Linda, Susie, Stefanie and me! It was so fun, Rog bought us dinner and made sure our glasses were never empty. We watched old family movies (my father-in-law narrated the best family movies). We ate 'Grinders Keepers' grinders and
'Wings over Bristol' wings.
We laughed and cried, and laughed some more!

Jasmine has bronchitis ...
but she seems to be on the mend! Poor puppy ...

Jasmine's cousins, Callie and Jack,

came to visit her!

"Jack, where are your eyes?"

Back yard stuff ...

It's hard to see in the above photo, but that is NOT a pile of snow in our back yard. It's a Red-tailed hawk lunching on a Seagull. Tried sneaking up on him instead of getting the telephoto lense, but you can't sneak up on a Red-tailed hawk! The Seagull was bigger than the hawk and he carried it away. And all that was left was ....

Have a great-rest-of-the week!

Where in the world is OS Man?

"Where in the world is Old Saybrook Man?" He's so darn cute! Rog found him in some of Auntie's treasures and he made the trip this weekend to GHB to check out the dock that needs to be replaced on Buckingham. You'll be seeing a lot of him this summer. He's very vintage (solid cast iron) and glad to be back amongst family and friends. Stay tuned for more Old Saybrook Man adventures. Oh .... and by the way, he needs a real name .... Rog thinks it should be "Norman", but I'm not lovin' it! Got any ideas?

the dock sure does need replacing ...

i think we're missing a step here ... EEWWW!
