Here I am again, behind. On a good note though, I've had a great time with my mom and her hubby, they came to visit for vacation from WA state and I'm pretty sad they've left.
Again, I will try my best to explain these as I load them.
My mom and I play Scrabble. It gets very competitive, and we will question (not challenge) each other words, look it up, and make each other take it off if we cannot prove that it's a word. I love this time with my mom, and I would not change my Scrabble partner for anything!
Blackberry Cobbler! Yes, the real berries. The tiny ones you have to spend hours picking just to get enough for a pie. My dear mom traveled 2000 miles to deliver them and bake this delicious cobbler. I think every time I have this, it's better and better. This is the best pie/cobbler in the world!
This book was required reading for a friend of ours. This in turn became the book of choice for the high school year for my daughter. Talk about sad, happy and thankful all at once at the end. What these boys endure as they are acquired as boy "soldiers" marching for a cause that was not their own.
Outside Trump Tower (yes, we visited again - that's twice in one week) were these beautiful water lilies in a gorgeous pond. It was hard to know where to look, point and shoot. The purple ones stole my heart, so I shall share these. :)
My hun! This is my husband, my best friend, my cheerleader, companion, rock and leader of our family. I love him! I loved this photo, it looks like he's modeling clothes. Our son should watch out, he will steal his job! The city in the background was just perfect.. okay, maybe I'm a little biased.
The boats were so peaceful to watch. Tons of activity were on this Chicago River, but it all seemed to flow so perfectly. I've always wanted to take a boat tour of the city. I will have to do this one day!
