My yard is all planted with flowers!!! I am so excited and happy to be done!!! I will update this blog with pictures as soon as I down
load them....the front planter garden with light post is really nice and colorful!!! I will make sure I take pictures as they grow and fill up with color....all the planters are full too.....soon the roses are going to bloom....I cut snowballs to put in a vase in the kitchen....I had lilacs earlier, but they are all gone now....I love this time of year!!!! Oh and the tomatoes and green peppers are doing good too....this means salsa!!!

We had a GREAT TIME with the Taukinukufili's in Las Vegas

We had so much fun with our
favorite friends the
Taukinukufili's in Las Vegas!!! We stayed with them from Saturday thru Monday....Sierra's Birthday!! Staci, Kristi and I went.....We, of course had to go visit the "strip" and see the few places we love to visit....the Aladin and the Hilo Hatties store ... this is a Hawaii store....but to our dismay, the Aladin turned in to Something Hollywood and Hilo Hatties is gone!!! We also visited the Rio Casino so we could watch the Marti Gras action....well, when we finally saw it, it was at 9pm and was a little risque for our liking...Luana, Staci, Kristi and I talked until 2am...more like laughed until 2am....what we laughed about will remain a secret between us...ha ha ha....went to church with the family sunday, had a nice sunday day then went to the Belagio to watch the water show...we met up with some of the rudest people on the street...I think it was the weekend for rudies....anyway, the show was of course really good. Next day, monday, we met up with a rude lady who wanted our parking spot and acted like a dope because she didn't get it....we were kind of "kicked" out of Denny's Restaurant....all we wanted was to go to breakfast, but again, rudies....then on our way home we were flipped off by some men because we didn't move over out of their way on the freeway...oh brother...more rudies...anyway, we really did have a great time and it was so good to see the family....we already miss them!!!

Our Favorite Friend ... MOCKEY

I just about forgot to include one of the most important our home!!! This is our little dog who will be turning 16 years old this July!!!! He is a great friend and we love him TONS!!! He is very healthy for a 16 year old, a little slower in his walk, but aren't we all.....he even escaped the other day,,,something he hasn't done for a long time,,,the neighbor a block away called to let us know he was walking down the road....he is a lot easier to catch these days..

Adventures to Las Vegas to see The Taukinukufili's

Kristi and hopefully Staci and I are heading off to the big land of Las Vegas Memorial Weekend to see the Taukinukufili's!!!! Hurray, we haven't seen them for over a year...........seems like longer of course.....We are looking forward to seeing Bryce, Luana, Joey, Vaughn, Sierra and Cheyenne and of course laughing and talking for 2 1/2 whole days!! Wow!! We will take pictures and put them on this blog site as soon as we get home.
We have been working on our yard this spring.........we put in a garden with a front yard lamp....It's really nice....we planted the front yard, still need to plant the back yard and the pots.................more work to be done.....I will take pictures and put them on the blog for fun!!!
