Ava's 12th birthday

Hard to believe that Ava is 12 years old.  We had a great time celebrating her birthday with the family and her friend Emma.  We had fried chicken, noodle and potato salad and a yummy cake that Anna baked.

Flower show my foot!

Well.....I was looking forward to this flower show in the Edison Expo center.  It was a bus trip sponsored by the Berkeley Twp. Rec. Center.  It is a wonderful program for seniors.  For $10 a year, they take you every Thursday to a different place.  From shopping malls to exhibits and then some. This week we took a trip to Edison to see the annual flower show. The whole thing should have been called flea market or craft show.  Most of the exhibitors were dealers.  Everything you can think of was displayed, from chiropractors to jewelry sales stands. 
Sure, there were a few flower displays, as well as garden furniture, etc., but I expected to see a lot of flowers and not people trying to push massages, or solar panels, as well as windows on you.  All in all....I wasted $12 to get in.
I took a few flower shots, but the place wasn't even well lit, and a flash would have been too bright for this micro shots.

New Hope

70 degrees in February?  Hard to believe, but that was the temperature yesterday.  We were planing on taking a ride to New Hope yesterday, but since it wasn't really sunny, we decided to postpone it to today.  I am glad we did!  Pure sunshine with 55F, which was fine!  Once we found out where to park, we walked through town.  Sure it's very touristy, but still interesting and fun.

Happy Birthday

17 year old!  Congratulations to our Anna!  It was an exciting morning for her, because she went to get her license. So proud of our oldest granddaughter.
We met for breakfast after it was all done and then they were off to get the actual 'proof'.

Anna's 17th pre-birthday party

Anna's birthday is tomorrow (2/13), but we had a little family gathering the day before.  Dennis, Chrissy and Boo stayed home, because they are sick.  We picked up Luke and he had a great time with Ava.
