Family Left

This is my oldest son
My son David and his wife Cathy
The Grand Canyon!! They just came back from a trip to the grand Canyon. They loved it- who wouldn't!!!
They spent the week-end and the visit was really great. We went out to dinner Friday night. We spent 3 hours doing that!! Saturday we had our Thanksgiving dinner. We had it out in the yard. It was such a beautiful day. We all helped so it didn't turn out to be too much work.
They loved the garden and of all the time that they have been here while we have had the garden this was the first time they really looked at it. They went home with a stevia plant and were so happy we gave them a natural sweetener plant!!! They need to get off sugar!!! That plant has helped us do just that!! We have been off sugar for a year next February.
It was a very enjoyable week-end.

Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! Happy Thanksgiving.


  2. I wonder how many dachshunds it took to dig that big canyon thingy????
    You asked about posting for your Adoption/Rescue story. Just go ahead and post it on YOUR blog like normal.. then be sure to go to Minna and tell her so you will be in the big drawing.

    We put the tomato sauce over the sticky rice and it's still STICKY. Maggie does like it but I guess there is nothing you can do to loosen up the sticky rice!
