I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, I just haven't been blogging.
But I figured I better get up to speed here and get caught up.
So here's how everything has been going.
Work is going great. Staying busy there.
It's seems like the summer is going by fast. Can't believe that June is almost over.
Last week Maddie started her swimming lessons. She loves them. She loves the water, so it's a perfect match. So far she has been doing wonderful. She has almost mastered swimming under water. So proud of her.

We've been getting some rain this past week. But I'm not going to complain, because we needed it.

The other day I was on my way home from work and had the pleasure of driving home in a nasty rain/hail storm. Luckily I didn't run into too much hail. It wasn't fun.

Last Sunday we had a cook out at our house for Father's Day. There was on moment of excitement. We had a small fire outburst with the grill. That's right, I said FIRE.
It seemed that there was a good amount of old grease in the bottom of the grill and it didn't take much for it to ignite and cause flames to shoot out from the grill, and almost causing the back deck to set a blaze. Didn't get any pictures of the action, but trust me it happened. We were just lucky that it was caught in time before tragedy struck.
That about sums up our week. Hope all is well with everyone else!

Better late then never.....

Well it's official. I have a 5 year old.
Last Sunday Maddison celebrated her 5th Birthday. Where has the time gone?
Soon it will be time to take her to Kindergarten. But we need to get through the summer first.
She had such a wonderful day. We had a party with all her "girl" friends. She told me that she only wanted to have the girls come. Why? Who knows. But they sure had a blast.

They played for a while, then Maddison had plenty of help opening all her wonderful gifts.

Then it was time to sing ♪Happy Birthday♫ and dig into some ice cream and cupcakes!

Then since it was VERY warm outside, we had a pool party again this year. The kids loved it. And who wouldn't? They managed to get all the adults wet with water too. My Dad got the brunt of the action.

Thank you to all who were able to come and celebrate with us. It was a fantastic day.
