Our Summer So Far.......

There is this great Mediterranean restaurant in Temecula that has the BEST grape leaves and hummice YUMMY! My brother and I took our dad there for father's day. Dan had to work. Below is my brother getting Ryanne wound up so she can get in trouble. Sigh.....

We got to have BBQ and catch up with some long time friends who by the way now know how to find my blog so I will be the bigger person and NOT bag on you here in public Ralph just on the off chance you are reading this today. Ha! Mindy trains dogs for the blind. We call her the dog whisperer. Don't you feel more complete knowing that? :)

Our friends invited us to the beach and even though the sun never did appear we had a really fun time.

Why is it kids can have a house full of toys but give then a pile of endless sand to dig in and a mere hole can keep them entertained for hours. And I do mean hours! See Morgan to the lower right corner? See Morgan's lower back? Yes that is the one spot I missed with the sun screen and she knelt like this for hours. Ummmmm....just a little sun burned. Ouch!

Ryanne caught this little guy below. Lunch anyone?

Morgan's long time friend Jesse. I think between the 3 moms we had 10 or 11 kids. Yup everyone survived and made it back in one piece.

I was going to come on here and tell you all about my crappy blood work and how my Lupus test came back positive again; my hormones, thyroid and cholesterol were all dangerously low (who has dangerously low cholesterol anyways?) and how now I am rubbing all natural hormone cream on the "girls" and they are growing like I am eating Miracle Grow.
But then that all seemed silly and irrelevant after this last week.
Our friend Tony who works with Dan was rushed to the hospital and we found out later he has 40 swollen spots on his brain. They are not sure what exactly caused it and he is very sick.
Then a couple days later another friend from the department passed away. Our department is hurting right now.
Please pray for Tony and his wife as they navigate this illness.
Also pray for Dave's wife and family as they grieve. And for the department family as the funeral is Tuesday.

Ya' my blood worked sucked but the blessing in it and I know this will sound crazy to some, but God woke me up in the middle of the night and told me to get my blood drawn so I did. If I had not The Dr. said there could have been a hospital stay in my near future. I was really whacked out. Now everything seems to be getting back to normal. Well, normal for my body anyway.
Blogger freaked out so the photos below go with this post as well. :)
