Day 118

This was supposed to be a picture of Ryan at his book signing and poetry reading.  Unfortunately, the picture I have of Ryan has his eyes closed.  This is Jack at Ryan's poetry reading.  Apparently, three year olds aren't interested in poetry.

Day 113

This is how our yard should always look.  Adorable, laughing children with a beautiful golden retriever at their side.  Now, if I can just convince someone else of this.

Day 111

The new shirt and the new glasses for the 2013 season.
The picture doesn't do the glass justice.  It has really cool holograms.

Day 106

Watch out if you play frisbee with Jack.  He comes loaded with frisbees and his aim isn't great.

Jack had a great time opening presents.  He was pretty entertaining.

Day 103

Even though there were snowflakes in the air, I found some more blossoms.  They give me hope that it really is going to warm up one of these days.

Day 101

Natalie is going to be the best cousin ever.  She is already in love with Aunt Katie's baby.  She talks to her tummy and tells the baby she loves him/her.  She melts my heart.

It was awesome to have the little guys running around the yard again.  Maybe spring really is just around the corner.

2013 Ultimate Blog Party

It's that time again.  It's time for the........
Janice and Susan, the twin bloggers behind 5 Minutes for Mom are hosting the 7th annual Ultimate Blog Party.  It's a party on internet.  It's a place to meet new friends and find all kinds of new blogs.  There are even presents to win. 

The premise is very simple.  Write a party post on your site, sharing a bit of what you and your site are all about, and then add the URL to the party post to the applicable linky list.  So, with that in mind, here's my party post.
My name is Nancy aka Bacardi Mama.  I have been married to my husband Dick for just shy of 40 years.  We have four beautiful daughters.  Cindy is 38.   Katie and Sarah are our twins and will be 30 on May 1.  Abby is our baby at 25.  We also have three wonderful sons-in-law and one more to come in the next few years.  We love them all.  But....the absolute lights of my life are my beautiful grandkids, Lizzy, Jack and Natalie.  They melt my heart on a daily basis.  If you've never been here before and look around, you'll see they get a lot of my blog time.  We got some very exciting news last month.  Grandbaby #4 is on the way and due on November 2.  This makes me beyond excited. 
I love taking pictures.  I am defintiely an amatuer, but I still love it.  In 2011, several people talked me into starting a picture blog where I post a picture a day.  I love it!  Below, you will find one of the pictures that won me an honorable mention at a garden show photo contest.

So, take a look around.  Hopefully, you will like what you see and visit again.  Please leave a comment so I know you were here and I can stop by and visit you too.
