We've been to soccer games where I got to watch Kiersten be the goalie for her team. That is one tough little girl. I'd be scared of getting kicked in the face. It had been raining earlier (seems to be normal where ever we go lately) and she managed to get pretty muddied up. But their team won so we celebrated by going to Cherry Berry for self serve frozen yogurt, one of my favorite things to do.

We've been able to get to know our neighbors much better as we've had some downtime to be able to visit and the weather cooperated to allow us all to be outside.
Last Wednesday we had a gathering at the pavillion so many of us could connect and share a potluck supper. It was also a surprise birthday celebration for Doug who will be turning 62 very soon. I've been told that I will have the same thing the last Wednesday in July but to be sure and act surprised. Heck, with my memory I probably will be surprised.
We shared a yummy lunch with our daughter, Stephanie, at a Thai restaurant to celebrate the hiring of her new assistant. Any excuse to gather for food works in our family.
The family is off enjoying their vacation in Yellowstone now and Left Brain and I plan to do some work around the house for them while they are gone. The kids bedrooms need painting before their new beds arrive, and it's much easier to get things done while they are away. So, we'll go hang out with Zeke the WonderDog do a little painting and such.
Since we have decent internet here in the park, I took the opportunity to file for my Social Security retirement benefits. It's still hard for me to believe I'll be 62 in July...I look so YOUNG. My theory is if you believe it, it will be so...regardless of what my mirror indicates.
Long Live the Queen of Good Times
