Family Day

Yesterday we had a BBQ for my daughter at my place - it was nice having most of the family together - my son that was in Calif. has now ventured to Flagstaff so he was MIA.

It was an afternoon of swimming and eating with only one injury. My granddaughter Madison ended up getting hit in the nose with my grandson's head. We thought her nose was broken, but thankfully it's just bruised.

The plan for tomorrow is to go to the fabric store so they can begin designing and sewing - should be interesting!

After the BBQ my husband and I stayed at The Pointe for the night (a gift from our kids) and I ate my favorite food in bed; french fries along with the best carrot cake, and of course, we sipped on wine.  

Now it's time to focus on my laundry - have a great Sunday!

They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
