Yours, Mine, and Sweet 16

We had a very productive weekend celebrating my nephew John's 16th birthday. He turns 16 on the 9th of June and I'm sure he is looking forward to the freedom of driving a car.

Pizza deliveries are uncommon way out in the country but Dennis my brother-in-law was more than happy to bring us some much needed refreshments!

All the younger kids enjoyed snacking and watching a movie.

Dad can usually be found setting out on the porch when he's not fishing.

We spent most of the day working on a couple of projects at Mom and Dad's house. We built them some new back steps and made a flower garden out front. My sis "Jane" was trying to be the boss.

Bobbie was soon worn out from all the hard work. I have to admit she probably worked harder than anyone then again she's the youngest of us girls!

Sherry enjoying a break!

After we finished our work day at my folks house we went for supper over at Danny's folks. Glad we all live so close.

It was one of those rare times when all of Danny's brothers and sisters were all over. We enjoyed a great meal of spaghetti and garlic toast.

The original "Jackson" gang!

Happy Trails....Ginger

What a great day you had with your family! Isn't it wonderful to have them close by?

I am loving your alphabet doodles, and although I haven't sitched any yet, I have saved them all to my computer.

Wooly hugs,
