yesterday was fun

grab something to drink and have a seat. Yesterday was so much fun for us!

I some how managed to get all the stuff done that I needed to get done....and I got it done very early!

I went to pick up one of Ambers girlfriend. I am sitting at a stop light trying to light a smoke and talk on the phone when the light turns green. I happen to look in the rear view mirror and saw a cop. I so hung up the phone and watched my speed.

I get to the friends house and five cop cars go flying past us. So we decided that it would be a good idea to follow them and see what they are up to. Once the cops turned onto the dead end street we stopped, and just watched them raid a house!

Then I came home and decided that we needed to go to the lake. I called a neighbor down the street to see if her daughters wanted to go. One of her daughters has c.p., so I know she does not get invited to go out very often. It was so nice to just float in the lake. It has been a while since I took a break, and did something for myself.

Then we came back home and I was able to finish up some quilts that I had been working on. As you can see the kittens were so willing to help me! I had enough scraps that I even made a little girl baby quilt. I do not know anyone who is having a girl, but I will be ready if they do!

Amber, Sam, and Jessica ( Ambers friend) decided that they wanted to go to coldstone and get some ice cream. The only thing is they had no money! So they scrounged for all the money they could find. Then Jessica grabs a cup and walks up to some of the marines and asks for donations. One of the marines pulled out a jack daniels bottle full of change. I told them that if they went and paid for their ice cream with they money from the jar that I would give each of them $3. Then I added that they had to have pictures! They did it.

Yesterday was filled with laughter and relaxation. I sure could use more days like that!

The picture below is an actual picture of our children walking on the beach by the lake. I so love our lake!
