Happy 4th of July....

HAPPY 4th of JULY !!!

Hello everyone! Yes, I know it's been quite awhile, and I do apologize. We are all fine here and I thank you all for the comments and emails of concern. Things have just been busy... it started with the wrapping up of the school year, teacher gifts(which I will share in another post), field days, concerts, etc. Then trying to clear out the house for a major yard sale(which I'm still clearing out) that will be on July 16th and 17th(let me know if you want directions). Doing yard work, making presents for a friend's daughter's wedding(you will see in a later post), rearranging rooms yet again(yes, I know, I'm crazy). And most of my time is spent with my sweet baby who has acquired "mommyitis". I know I am biased, but he is the happiest baby I have ever seen and oh so cute. He can now roll himself across the floor and is beginning to tuck his legs under his bum when he's on his tummy, so I know crawling isn't too far off. Oh, and yet another reason for my absence is that we switched internet providers and it has been uber slow and loading pics is a nightmare.

But here I am, and I'm wishing you all a glorious 4th of July!!! It's also my son's 7th birthday. He came into this world with a bang, that almost took both our lives, and he still is a little firecracker.

We spent the day at a state park beach, it was hot, but the water was cold and refreshing. We then came home and grilled, and in a few minutes we will be heading out to watch the fireworks.

Here are some pics of the day...

The Birthday Boy!!!
We couldn't do beach excursions without our beach tent. It keeps Mason out of the sun and lets him have a place to hang out in his swing.

And just a quick shot after we got home and showered, he was enjoying some tummy time.
And last, these 3 little babies were discovered yesterday under our deck. We can watch them from the french doors in the daylight basement.
I'll try to be better about posting now that things are a bit settled down around here and hopefully the internet will cooperate.

With Love,



  1. Happy Birthday to your young man! Tummy time photo just precious. Happy 4th to you & your family too!

  2. Hi Tiff, Great to see you back writing the Blog. I've really missed catching up on all the things you do. Love Catherine xxx

  3. Tiff, so great to hear from you - glad you are all doing wonderful! Hope to read more posts from you soon -I was reading your old Type Pad today and enjoying every minute :)

  4. Looks like a fun day at the beach..enjoy your little ones now...they grow up and leave the nest real fast. I raised 8 sons and 1 daughter and now our lives are wrapped up in 4 dogs and 3 cats (they don't take the garbage out...but they don't ask for allowance either :)
    Hop on over to my blog and leave a comment for a chance to win a $30.00 grocery gift card :)

  5. I'm glad all is well. I figured your little one was keeping you busy. What a cutie. Happy Birthday to your sweet boy.

  6. Have missed your blogging, but it's certainly understandable with all that you have going on. Wish I could be at your yard sale, but I don't think you live in Northwestern Pennsylvania. Maybe it's just as well - I'm sure I'd want to buy most everything! Good luck with the sale.

  7. So happy that all is well! I've missed your posts, too ~ but happy to see that all is well. Your Little Mister is too cute! Are you in the HEAT WAVE up in Maine, too??! We are here in CT it's WICKED HOT!! HAPPY SUMMER!!
