Splash - July 2017

The splash this month is a little different.  I only had four kids, since Rachel is still in Arkansas.  Samantha was able to put Rachel's picture in JMichael's "hands" through Snapchat.  The bridge is the Chesapeake City Bridge over the C&D Canal, where we went for fireworks.

They are here....

Rachel and Evan are here in Maryland!  They arrived late tonight after a two day drive.  Whew!  All back under one roof.  Yay!!!  Now it's time to move them in and hit the beach!

My salad

I was at work today and my family was at the grocery store.  They texted and asked if I wanted something for a lunch and I said, sure; I'd love a salad.  (Our local grocery store has a salad bar.)

A salad is a personal thing.  You can put on it what you like; and in the proportions that you like.  My family made me a perfect salad.  I am happy and proud to know that they know me so well that they made a salad that I would have made myself, with no direction from me other than, sure; I'd love a salad.

And on a side note, I'm so happy to live again near a town that has a salad bar in the grocery store!  My kids have never seen this concept in Arkansas, and it has been a hit with them, too!

The little truck that could....

 There's a little town to the north of us, "up the shore" and as you come into town from the south, you pass a yard with piles of various types of dirt and gravel.  If you look closely, you can see in this picture that the owners have a sense of humor.  The next picture is a close up of the first.

Country living.  It makes me smile every time.
