You will read my thoughts, my hopes and dreams, and see some of my favorite things. I hope you will visit often. I will try to update it regularly and hopefully you will see an improvement in the blog along the way. Thank you for stopping in to see me as I travel on this journey called "life"!

It is PHOTO ROULETTE time over at MISCHIEF and LAUGHS.  I know that it technically says "Friday" but Cara is so sweet to extend the time to enter until Tuesday!  That is good for people like me who like to play but can't seem to get one posted on Friday.  
The theme for this week is the 3rd folder, the 25th picture.  I view all of my photos in Picasa and they are very disorganized.  I spend way too much time blogging to organize them.  That is a project for another day!  So having said that, this is the 25th picture in a folder that appears to be the 3rd one.

This photo is of my "baby", Connor.  The original photo was taken in color; but, I used this photo in a black and white photo collage of our kids.  

I took this photo last summer in the harbor in Sunapee, New Hampshire while we were visiting.  One of my stepsons got married last summer and we took the time to have a family vacation.  This was the first time that we had all of our kids in the same place at the same time.  Since we have a blended family and they are scattered in various locations, it has been difficult to get every kid together at the same time.
The weather was beautiful the week we were vacationing up there and we had rented brand new Mustang Convertible to drive around.  This particular day, the wedding festivities were over and my husband, step-daughter, Connor and I went out riding around and exploring the area.  It was a wonderful day of making memories.   I have lots of photos from that trip taken with my little point and click.  This is just one of many.

This morning, I peeked in over at MISCHIEF and LAUGHS to get the button code for the week and saw that there are several entries already.  I am looking forward to linking up and viewing all of the great entries this week.   

Have a great weekend!
