Happy Father's Day & The start of Summer Vacation-

Today I say Happy Father's Day to this wonderful man in my life for the last 22 years. He was able to go and play golf this morning, but we were rained out at the pool.  Tonight I am fixing Flank Steak, Fingerling Potatoes and Grilled Brussell Sprouts (will have green beansalso in case he doesn't like them) tonight for dinner and then watch Battle LA after our son gets off work (He got it for him)

I called my Dad this morning to wish him a Happy Father's Day, he was relaxing because it was raining so he couldn't go out and putter in the yard.  He was also admiring his new mackdaddy grill my mom bought him.  It took two people to get it up onto the deck.  Bob called his Dad and made the wishes there.  His Brother and family are coming tomorrow for a week so that will be fun. 

In other exciting news Friday was the last day of school here in Va. Beach, so my summer work begins with all the places Megan will want to go.

I am off to tend to dinner, I will be back tomorrow with pictures of a swap I participated at on Amy Powers blog.

Have a great rest of your Sunday,

Well it is definitly Summer here in Va. Beach. Last week we had 90-100 degree days and the humidity was aweful. We went to the neighborhood pool both Saturday and Sunday, but you definitly had to stay in the water.

Here are a few things i have done that I have not posted:

I participated in the Petite Inspiration Box Swap Spring Edition with The Speckled Egg. These are the boxes that I made for my partners Kathy and Michele.

These are the boxes that I recieved. This one is from Kathy.

This box I recieved from Michelle.

Then I was in a private swap with Ann. I sent her a box of fabrics and goodies and she sent me this Pinkeep that she makes. I had sent one to my mother for Mother's Day and now I have one too.

I love how she printed out the two classes I was taking from my blog and also added a little Boston Terrier to her also. If you want one contact me and I will get her your information. She doesn't have a blog or Etsy.

Thanks for reading and have a great week.
