Mabel & Mr Stinky

The other day I spotted something moving in the grass

Hello!  What is your name??

 HEY! Come back here!

Don't you want to play??

Mom says I was very lucky
 that Mr Stink Bug was feeling friendly 
and did not raise his butt to me

Thankful Thursday

Mabel & Hazel said I could have the blog today to tell you about the most amazing weekend.

We are so thankful that we were able to gather with family to celebrate the wedding of our granddaughter.

Cierra & Jacob are both in the Air Force 
and stationed at Travis Air Force Base in California

They chose to get married on Sunday July 1st
at Donner Lake, Truckee, CA

My son found a large cabin through Airbnb 
that was only 10 minutes from the lake
It was large enough for Stan & I, my son & wife, their oldest daughter Shea, youngest son Rob and son Bodie who flew down from Canada where he is coaching baseball for the summer. There was also the other grandma, an aunt & uncle, the maid of honor, and the photographer all staying at the cabin. It was so fun to all be together. 

Jacob stayed at place nearby with his Dad & sister that flew in from Pennsylvania, the best man & his wife  
and two of his good friends. 

We are so thankful everyone arrived safe!

Saturday evening we went to the lake
 to take some pre-wedding photos

Now let me tell you about the photographer
She is the daughter of my son's boss. 
A very talented and special young woman
she jumped at the chance to photograph
 this special weekend for us and flew into Reno 
with air miles donated by her dad. 
She stayed at the cabin with us and felt just like family
I am so thankful to have met this lovely woman

It was a beautiful evening 
as the soon to be newlyweds strolled on the beach

Stan captured this great photo with his phone

Then it was the big day

Hair and makeup done 

Her Mom helping Cierra into her dress

A hug from Dad and it is time to go

It was the most amazing day

Enjoy this short wedding highlight video!

 So thankful for my beautiful granddaughter 
and this wonderful young man who adores her.
May they have many years of happiness together

My heart is so full!

Flower Friday Remembrance

Yesterday marked one year ago

that our Mr. Bailey went to the Rainbow Bridge

We thought we would show you how our Memorial Garden 
is doing on this Flower Friday with the LLB Gang

We have had a very nice spring 
and the garden is all in bloom

All the plants mingle together

Some that have started in one place 
have popped up in other places

A rock for each one of our babies 
waiting at the Rainbow Bridge

We just love the delicate purple flowers, 
they are our favorite in the garden

Thinking of all our Pug Angels today

Thank you Rosy for hosting Flower Friday
