I took tons of pictures of her and these are my favorites



these are precious of Hailey and our son Tyson .. these 3 are my favorites .. they bring tears to my eyes when i look at them .. the love a father has for his daughter is breath taking.

Monday we spent the day with our grand daughter and later our son Tyson stopped by to visit.  We’ve had a great busy weekend and more to come with our granddaughter.



I’d like to thank all those who have served our country as we do not forget the true meaning of why we celebrate this holiday.  Happy Memorial Day to you all.

Family and Friends

We’ve had a busy week.  Watching the grand daughter play softball, spending time visiting with friends and spending time swimming, fishing, bike riding, playing at the park and having too much fun with the grand kids. 

Other then that not much is going on in our lives right now.  Just busy enjoying friends and family and enjoying the wonderful temps.  It has finally gotten warm and stayed warm.  I’m back to my desired clothing of T-shirt and shorts.  Although i have not lost any more weight lately but i have not gained any either.  I’m proud to say I am maintaining and hopefully soon i can get back on track to losing some more.

Happy Mother’s Day


to all you mothers.  My back hurt all night long and so I had a ruff night sleeping from the long day i had yesterday so i spent my entire day in bed nursing a hurting back.

My kids called and i thanked them but ask them to not come see me as i wasn’t up for company.  I spent my day laying in bed watching Hallmark mother’s day movies.

Happy 75th birthday to my Mother in Law .. love you

Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day
