Catching Up!!

So much has happened in the last month!
My Mom moved into her new apt and seems to be setteling in.  It's been a big adjustment but being here and close to me is making her happy I know!  We are in the process of finding new Dr's and that seems to be going well.

Tiger has had a great summer!  Trying to write his name (not bad for his first time)

Hiking in the mountains with his Dad
He loves the outdoors!

Picking Blueberries
and eating ice cream are favorite summer activities

Swim lessons at the YMCA were very successful 
Along with lots of summer reading! 

I've been busy helping Mom settle in and trying to do more downsizing in my home.  I'm ready for a vacation!  So guess what?  I'm taking one!

My oldest daughter Ashleigh has to have her wisdom teeth out and I'm going to fly out to Cali and stay with her while she recovers and also have a few days vacation!  Betsy @ My Salvaged Treasures and I are hoping to meet for lunch while I am in Cali!  I love meeting blogging friends.

SPEAKING of meeting blogging friends....
on my way home I am going to stop in Denver, Colorado and spend a long weekend with one of my dearest blogging buddies
Kathe and I have been blogging friends for years now and have come to be close friends even though we have never met.  That will be taken care of soon!  I am so excited and so is Kathe!!  I've never been to Colorado so I'm excited about that also!  It's going to be so much fun!  You know there will be lots of photos!

I'll be blogging about my trip soon!

Joining Kathe for 

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

You are going to have a great vacation seeing your daughter and meeting up with Kathe. You'll love Colorado, if it wasn't so expensive to live there I think we would consider it. When do you leave?

PS- Tiger is adorable as ever.

Kathe said...

That sounds like a great trip (except for your daughter's surgery). I know you will have so much fun.

Enjoy yourself!

I'd say that is a great attempt at writing his name! I can't wait to hear all about your vacation! How cool to be able to meet with Betsy and Kathe! Have fun and be safe.

Hi Linda...

My GOSH, Tiger is growing up before our very eyes.

Hope you have a wonderful time in Cali----you will certainly have a better time than your girl (poor dear.) Removing those doggone wisdom teeth is a bear.

Take care and have a good week. Susan

What a darling! Love the photos, I really do! Makes me wish my baby boy was closer. He calls us today. AT 3 he doesn't say everything together. He gets excited and stutters. He said, "Call Grandy and Bon-Bon at home."

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Good to hear your mum is settling in and finding a good doctor can be hard so I hope she finds one she likes without much trouble

Nellie said...

This has been a very busy time for you! Enjoy your travels! xo

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Tiger looks like he's really enjoying his summer with so many fun activities. I'm really looking forward to getting together next week, it's always such a treat to get to meet blogging friends in person:-)

Jann Olson said...

Oh my, how lucky are you? Getting to meet two wonderful blog friends! So, so fun!!! Can't wait to hear about it. Tiger is one cutie and smart too! Any smart boy knows that two ice cream cones are better than one! lol! Have a fab trip!

Oh my goodness! Meeting two blogging friends on your vacation. I love Betsy and would love to meet up with her - she is only about a 5 hour drive so maybe that will happen.

Tiger is just the cutest! - major jealousy!

Jill said...

Every time I see a pic of Tiger, he's grown just a little bit more, it's amazing how fast time is passing.....

Hartwood Roses said...

Good to hear that Mom is settling in. Having you and the rest of the family so close by is certainly a comfort and helps ease the stress of the move and having everything new and unfamiliar.

Tiger is such an adorable little boy!

Blessings to your daughter and have a safe trip!

★Carol★ said...

Tiger is growing by leaps and bounds! Sounds like you've earned a vacation, so have a great time meeting your bloggy BFF in person!

Mereknits said...

Sorry your daughter is going through this, but as we have said it is nice to have Mom nearby when your wisdom teeth have to come out. Have a wonderful trip, have fun meeting blogging friends, and I almost forgot, glad your Mom is getting settled.
Hugs,
Meredith

Hi Linda! I'm so glad everything is working out so well with your little mother. I read on FB about your daughter and so glad you're able to be with her. I know she appreciates her 'mommy' being there. You take care.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
