Happy Easter!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you have had a very blessed day! It's very quiet at my house since there are no family living close enough to share the day. I really miss those big family dinners.

It is finally a little warmer here, although it is still cloudy with some rain!

I would like to welcome and thank all the new followers! I am glad that you stop by to see what's going on here in central Pennsylvania. I have been trying to catch up on reading some of the blogs I follow. Wow. some of you really lead busy,interesting lives!

My hubby and I had a chance to get away for a few days last week. My favorite place in the whole world is the beach! Rehoboth Beach Delaware to be exact! I would move there in a heartbeat. It was much more quiet than when we go for our summer vacation. I was surprised to see so many people on the beach Wednesday. It was very warm. but too cold to swim. There were lots of people in the water though!

Here are a few pics!

Looking north on the boardwalk. Most of the shops on the boardwalk were closed.

This view is looking south on the beach.

The Bandshell on Rehoboth Avenue. They have absolutely fantastic free concerts every weekend during the summer.

We are planning another trip to Rehoboth some time in May........I can't wait! Well. it's time for me to start getting ready for bed, I have to get up really early for work tomorrow.
 Have a great evening.

My "Baby's" Birthday!

Hello Bloggers!

I hope you have had a wonderful day! I am still waiting for Spring to arrive! Cold and rainy here today.Oh well, it can't be too much longer till warmer weather can it?

Today is my baby's birthday! He is 20!!! I can't believe it. Where did those 20 years go? He has been such a joy. I tell him all the time that he is my favorite son! (He is an only son!) I must admit, when I found out I was pregnant I was less than thrilled!  I was 42, my hubby left a job of 25 years for a new one. We were in the middle of selling our home, building a new home in a new town and here I am...pregnant!Whew, not only am I oldest child  was 25 and my youngest was 7! We have three daughters and I was convinced that the baby was another girl! I had girls names picked out too. Well, let me tell you, when the doctor said "it's a boy" I was in shock!  Oh, and the kicker... my second daughter that was 22 at the time was also pregnant! So my grandson was born two months after my son! So now we had a son and a grandson!

I have so enjoyed having a son finally! Raising a boy was a whole new experience for my husband and me. We were used to dolls and all the girly stuff. Now we had to shift gears and figure out  what little boys actually are made of! He has turned out to be a fine young man and we are so proud of him.

So Happy Birthday son! Love you!

This is a picture from our trip to New York in November.We take all the kids every much fun!

Well that's enough of my rambling, thanks for letting me share.

Have a terrific week!
