July 4th celebration.

Happy 4th of July everyone, I bought this cake and ended up dropping it. Thank God it stayed in one piece, just became a little lop sided is all....lol



We were able to bring my parents home for our July 4th get together with Tito's family. This is JP, Tito's brother, talking with my dad.
The kids got out the slip & slide and this is Adrienne taking Joel down the watery, slippery hill in the backyard.
This is a picture of Tito's niece Haidee and myself. She is such a sweet niece. She will be moving to Vegas with her husband Ray and her parents. They will be truly missed. Ray got a better paying job.
Ray & Haidee.

Joel with his Uncle JP.
Joel and his Uncle Jet.

This is Tito's sister, Jean on the lower right, and her husband above her, daughter Haidee and her husband Ray.
This is a little plant that Emily brought home from school her last day. She said it was a radish plant and needed to be put in a big pot right away so that we could grow some radishes. Well, I do not have a green thumb but seeing these little radishes bloom makes me smile.
This is also our future pumpkin patch, in October we may have some pumpkins for sale if we have extra.

Last but certainly not least, my parents were able to join us. We are dog sitting their dog and she was so happy to see them that she never left the spot in between them. They both had a very nice time and Tito's parents have always been so loving and caring to them that I am sure it was great therapy for both of them.
My sister and my dad.
It was a little bit like old times even though my parents health has greatly deteriorated, they were both here and had a good time. I thank God for moments like these and I can't wait for the day we are all in Heaven together with no sickness and no end to the wonderful world in eternity that those of us will have that believe.

Oh Lisa, I can sympathize with you on the cake. I recently posted on my cake disaster. A girl after my own heart! But it's the thought and motive behind it that is important, right?

So glad to see that your parents were able to come to your home, even if only for a day. You are such a good daughter and you have such a loving heart. I enjoyed each and every photo you posted.

Happy 4th of July!
