It was the Marine's birthday. Grandson helped his Uncle open his gifts.
We couldn't wrap this one! The Marine's Bichon was stolen several years ago. We finally decided to replace him. We got him a Rat Terrier. The Marine has named her "Baby".
She loves to stand up and push the swivel chair in the Marine's room and make it go round and round.
I think she is going to make a good companion dog for him.
The weather finally cooperated for the Marine to have his beach day so off we went. Our niece held on to him while wewent down the bumpy road.
This year we went to Sharky's. The Marine enjoyed a few sips of a frozen strawberry daiquiri.
I didn't have the camera with the group shot but there were 10 family and friends who joined us.
Earlier, we harvested our first honey from one of our hives. First you uncap the wax.
The frames are placed in the extractor and then spun.
The beautiful golden stuff begins to flow. I am giving away a jar of this sweet goodness next Saturday. You can go to Our First Blog Giveaway to put your name in the hat.
The week ended with a beautiful bouquet of roses from the Marine, a sweet card from my daughter-in-law and calls from my daughter and younger son. I hope all of you Mom's had a great day as well.
