Our son's wedding....

Ben and Mary joined their hearts and families together on August 14th in Steamboat Springs, CO.
The locale 

Meet Mary Gross Blakekey

Meet Kade, Mary's oldest, and hangin' on to her flowers.

This is Kameryn (Kami), all girl, creator of 'the dance' and going into the 4th grade!

Jaxon, the youngest of the group and he did an awesome job straighten out Momma's train. Too cute!
These are our new grandkids :)

Unfortunately I wasn't allowed to have my camera during the ceremony so we go straight to the afterwards.

This is 'the dance'

Gross's cattle ranch beef was served. Melt in your mouth!

When I grow up .... I wanna wear high heels...

Let the dancing begin... DJ said he'd pay my 3 girls to start a party anytime!

92 year old Grammy is givin' the dance floor some leg!

Boys CAN dance!

So can the bride and groom.

Summer Doldrums....

My Grandkids from London are here. It's 115 degrees!! We've done lots of swimming, gone to the movies, cooked, drawn, played cards, yada, yada, yada.... What now. Thanks to a 'blog acquaintance', Angela Cartwright, Zoe, Chase, Grace and I made SOCK Dolls. I had needed to clean my sock drawer. Awesome idea, Angela, thanks!

While we have been busy creating, grandson Jack is quite the 'dog whisperer' and is getting along well with our hound Angie. They have a wonderful bond.

In 115* it's always nice to cool off...

Phoebe was toughing it out despite her Jump Street ankle sprain...

There are several creative minds out there, I hope this sparks some creativity, whether you need ideas to babysit with or clean your sock drawer have fun! Check out Angela's creativity at: http://acartwrightstudio.blogspot.com/
Thank you, Thank you Angela for some summer fun!

My first attempt....

I followed the directions in the previous post, went to the dump, since the park was full, set up my camera (bulb setting) and had fun. This is what I got.

If you have fireworks in your town tonight, try it! Happy Birthday, America!!
