Time keeps on slippin, slippin, slippin.....

Can you believe that it is almost the END OF JULY!?!?!

Do you remember those days, ( back when you were a kid), that time seemed to move at a snail's pace?  The school year lasted FOREVER, when you were anxiously awaiting summer vacation.  Summer vacation dragged on and on when you couldn't wait to get back to school to see your friends again.  Sunday drives with the family seemed an eternity when you were stuck in a car with your 3 brothers, mom and dad and it was raining outside and stuffy in the car.  (Had to add that one in there for YOU mom!)

Welcome to adulthood.  Where time moves at lightening speed.  You blink your eyes and 1/2 of the year is GONE already.  Where. O. Where does the time go?

July has been a super busy month starting off with the happy occasion of a wedding.  Our family has known Oliver since he was just a little guy.  We were honored to be included in the celebration of his marriage to Kim who is beautiful both inside and out.  Here they are taking their very first steps together as husband and wife.  Don't they look happy?

The other major event in our busy month was the
1st birthday of our precious granddaughter Mia.

Mia and mommy were so excited for the party!
We were so blessed to have 53 people in attendance to
celebrate Mia's 1st birthday.

Rafael and Jenny decorated their house so nicely.
Jenny made delicious pulled pork sandwiches, pasta salad, fruit salad
and a tasty watermelon punch. 

This is a picture of the Watermelon cake (s)
that Jenny and Rafael made. 
Pretty clever!

Mia polished off her little watermelon cake in a matter of minutes.
She looks like she is watching out for someone to come
and take her little cake away.
She truly enjoyed her first taste of SUGAR!
Must take after her grandma!

Another notable July event was the big Haboob
that hit Phoenix!
We get dust storms all the time, but this wall of dust measured
one mile high and about 5 miles wide.  
It was a monster.

This photo is a picture of our back yard and
 a baby haboob that hit
a few days later. 
My picture is not as dramatic as the ones shown on tv!

Time to end this little story for today.
Tomorrow I'll catch up on all of the crafty things
that have been happening in July.

Here's a picture of my favorite little "blogger in training".
Is it any wonder that the kids nowadays know more
about computers than we do?

Love, Piece and TIME,
