Summer Pickin'

(photo credit: Shutterstock)

It was decided late Saturday night that having a family outing for blueberry picking the following morning would merit a Sunday morning. Mom, Sarah, Shawna and I picked three delicious gallons whilst Shannon and T.J. ate their fair share..
The end of summer I believe is here and we had a good run for the last weekend. We picked up a dear friend, headed for the beautiful North Georiga mountains, enjoyed great food and time with family and celebrated Clayton's birthday!
And now we will be enjoying fresh blueberries for days to come.

Oh girls!

Friday is finally here! I'm sitting downstairs in my favorite chair (that Blake hates) with Lilah by my side. Chess, our stray dog that is still visiting, is sitting at my feet destroying a toy that Lilah has not played with since she received it for Christmas last year. And Shannon...

Shannon is not allowed to play her radio without closing the door. Blake just walked into the family room and asked me if her radio was up all the way... I'm so sure that it is. What's priceless though is hearing the foot rythm to her dancing her heart out. I love it.

I would join her just for laughs but I'm remembering my favorite quote from her this week after I had asked her to do something. What, I don't recall, but typically she would do the activity on her own:

Shannon: "uggghhh. Why do you always have to tell me to do things that I like to do?! It takes all the fun out of it!"

Oops :)

Lilah's Look-Alike

Lilah Grace

Yancy/Max (the jury is still out)

Nap Time
Yancy/Max/Peanut/Little Boy wandered into our backyard last Thursday night. Shannon and I walked house to house and met many of our neighbors, trying to find his home. Well, you know you're not going to have any luck when more than one person asks, "Which dog is yours? I can't tell." And I politely answered: "THE ONE ON THE LEASH..." 

Well, for the meantime, the little guy is sleeping at night in our bathroom as we are trying not to become too attached. It's quite difficult though when he shares all the same mannerisms as Lilah.

Let me know if anyone ones to adopt him. Warning: we are screening applicants.

The hills are alive with:

Blake's birthday gift finally arrived! We attended the Fox Theatre last Sunday and saw "The sound of Music"and it was absolutely wonderful, enchanting as always.  We have all remained in song this week and am ready for a corresponding movie night soon..
