Two Loves, Make That Three!

The other day Joe took Stephanie into town to swim with the LOML. They had a fantastic time. I stopped by to pick up Steph to take her home after work. I was quite bummed when I realized that I had forgotten my camera that day. Thank goodness though my Stephanie had taken hers.

That one is a bit blurry but I'm not complaining. Abby greeted me with all kinds of 'tricks' that she had learned. Dog paddling, holding onto the side of the pool and kicking those precious little legs, throwing me the ball, you know, all things that are important to a 3 year old. Oh and last but certainly not least the big ole tube.

Hello you precious little darling! Who is that swimming with you? Oh, it's your Aunt Sissy .... aka Stephanie.

"Graaaaaaaaaandmother...Aunt Sissy is too much fun!"

I know she is my precious darling. I see your Papa Joe brought Aunt Sissy here. She took some pictures of him. He would be the second LOML that I referred to on the post title.

I don't know why he does that pose when his picture is being taken. He is just a large retard! But that's ok cause he's my big retard.

I told ya, there he goes again! What, pray tell is that on his head? And someone tell me where from where that hat came? It looks like an empty turtle shell! I have to get him out more often.

Of course the third LOML I mentioned is Stephanie, aka Aunt Sissy. She is such a joy to have. Yes, she is 16 and knows everything. She is moody and sometimes quite bitchy but being a 16 yr old female she is entitled to that, well sometimes anyway.

All in all I am one lucky woman. I have a family that loves and supports me, I have a great job, I have a nice home (like Abby would say, hehe), my beloved Boxers and my 2 yahoos that stay in the pastures. OH, and a car that is paid for and gets 25mpg. A good item these days, especially since my daily commute is 40 miles.

Life is good. I just have to keep telling myself that and how lucky I am. Like Helen Reddy said "I am woman, hear me roar." Oh my, did I just post that? Say it isn't so.

One more picture of my sweetness. What's wrong Abby? Are you cold darlin?

Looks like she was having fun in the pool!

Now I know her, Abby's the one with the pink.

Joe does strike an interesting pose. Does he do that at Olan-Mills, too?

That is the biggest inflatable pool I have ever seen! Is that Abby's parents?

You have such a wonderful attitude towards life!

Yes So, it is an inflatable pool but it stays up all summer. There are lots of ppl around here that have them in their yards. I was just noticing that this week. They are affordable and nice for someone who doesn't want the hassle of a "real" pool.

Bill, I think Olan would be laughing too hard to actually take a picture of Joe if he were to act his normal self. Although that would be a site to see!

Thanks Heidi, I try to live my life being grateful for what I have, not wishing for more.
