Sorry about all the beach scenes.... but it is my saving grace this summer.  It helps with the move : )
My grandson is here visiting with us for a couple of weeks and we HAD to take him to the beach.

My boy, his friend, and I went on a bike ride at Red Rock Canyon.  It was a 15 mile bike ride.  We went early to beat the heat but it was still hot!  The first 6 miles is up hill.  Ugh! It was hard.  At about mile 5, I am asking myself "why?" We did this bike ride last year, but he wanted to do it again before the move.  So, out of a little mommy guilt and because I love him so much, I did it with him.  It was a challenge and great exercise.

On the road a lot this summer.... My girlie girl took these from the back seat of the car.  I thought they were interesting perspectives.  The second one was taken from the back seat with her point and shoot. The third one is the inside of her water bottle. Creative....

I will be leaving this tree behind when I finally leave my house for good.  : (
That makes me sad.

365-192 & 193

What a good sport my boy was.  My boy and his friends decided to get buried in the sand. YUCK, is all I can say.

The last picture is of the crowded beach.  Everyone decided to come out on this day.  We still had fun though!

365-185-188 Celebrations!

We had a celebration yesterday for the Fourth of July!  We had a blast!  We had a couple families come over  for food and fellowship.

Some of you had mentioned in your comments about my move.  We are still divided between 2 states.  We are going back and forth until the end of summer.  It has been hard and I sometimes just want the move over.

BTW, this is Denise from "The New Yorker that Loves Jesus."  She does not live in New York, she is from New York but she is still so NEW YORK!!! :)
