What a Wonderful Day


I had a HUGE surprise today. I recieved a birthday cake from a couple of blogging families! Now how sweet and thoughtful was that?? Thank you Cliff and Marilyn and thank you Ralph and Char. What a wonderful, thoughtful, and sweet thing to do. There is the picture and see.....it even has a tiny computer on it!! That was just the nicest thing to do. You sure are nice folks, no doubt about it.

Well, it certainly brightened my day right up and it is delicious. My husband and I both enjoyed some today and will enjoy it for days to come! I think I will freeze some for a wonderful treat later on.

This afternoon I went to my brother's cabin. I had not been up there since last year. So much has changed, as things do. It is about 26 miles from here. My nephew and his family were there too. We visited for awhile and then we decided to go 4-wheeling. I had never rode one alone until today. I loved it. I rode my other nephew's wife's Kawasaki and what fun, fun, fun it was!! There was 7 of us. Even the 8 year old has her own 4-wheeler, but a smaller one. They make sure she wears her helmet and chest protector when she rides. This is a picture of her. She loves it too.









On my way over there I saw a wild turkey but it wouldn't stop for me to get a picture. I also saw a snake a high tailing it across the road and he wouldn't stop either for a picture. Seems the critters were all in a hurry!


So I got to try something new and I really enjoyed it.
Here is what I rode.















Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there!
