Our Second Rose!!!!!!!

We have our second Grandma Smith Rose!!! It is so beautiful and the Pink is so vibrant.
We thought we were just growing some pretty green sticks for a while ( the Deer seemed to like the taste of the Grandma Smith Rose leaves). Love to all

A Tour Of...


What a fun time Dan and I had visiting Chicago, we packed a lot in our long weekend but it was well worth it!
Here is a view of some of the awesome buildings downtown:

The "bean" sculpture in Millennium Park - so neat you can see yourself in the city.

Gorgeous weather called for a trip to Lincoln Park Zoo where we saw animals and also The Air Show that was in town for the weekend.

Finally we spent Saturday at Wrigley Field watching the Cubs win and then celebrating in Wrigleyville afterwards. Here we are before the game, taking in the sights and smells of Wrigley.

We met a lot of new friends after the games at the bars around the stadium, here's Dan with a baseball fan!

Take Me Out To The Ballgame...

We leave this Thursday for our annual baseball trip. Dan and I want to take a few trips each summer and eventually see all of the baseball stadiums. We leave Thursday morning and are going to see a game at Wrigley, we're excited to see Wrigley as well as the city of Chicago!

Sending love to my sister Caitlin are the pink Gerber daisies I planted this spring for her, her favorite flower and they are beautiful.

Love to Dan for being so supportive over the past few weeks as I work marathon days! He surprised me last week with these amazing pink roses. They were truly some of the prettiest roses I have ever seen, light pink with darker pink around the edges.
