The continuing drama of Michael Drive...

What a busy weekend around the homestead. Emily came to visit for the grand opening of the pool.
She brought along her grandfather, Sid, who is the best neighbor ever. He can fix anything.
I love a good birch tree. Matt insisted this tree had to be slaughtered because it put, "too much crap in the pool."

Emily is just glad she can stick her feet in the pool and can't wait to go swimming.

She insisted I take a picture of her new Hannah Montana fur lined crocs.
The Hog came out of hiding. It's for sale, by the way, my internet friends.
We want a camp instead.

I was surprised this weekend with a new ride of my own.

Matt found me this new bike at a yard sale. I have been looking for a new bike for a couple of years. I wanted a classic beach bike with gears. Most beach bikes have no gears because they ride on a flat beach. This baby has seven speeds. The previous owner bought it new last year for over $200.00. He thought it would help after his heart surgery. He rode it three times to Dysart's Restaurant for breakfast. If you have ever had a Dysart's breakfast, you know that biking there defeated the purpose of the ride.

To make a long story short. I have two new rides.

These are the trees our new neighbors cut down over the weekend.

I raked and was glad to see green stuff.

Sid and Jackie have the best garden in the neighborhood, as always.

Annie was just happy to get outside.

A sleep over!

Rusty came to stay! We all acted like a puppy.
Ebony and ivory sort of. Rusty just wants to play, play, play and Annie wants to be Queen Bitch. They are cousins and I think they will come to love each other?

Matt gave me the most thoughtful Easter stuff!

Rusty loves crocs!!!
In support of the arts, Matt read aloud from Uncle Henry's.

Easter party!

We had our annual Easter party at our new offices today. Of course Butch had a front row seat by the DJ.
We had a great dinner and then proceeded to get down to some serious dancin.

Our new office space makes for a great party hall.

Dancing up a storm!
We have such great parties!!!
Rock on!!!

Latest addition to the family.

After a busy shopping day, Matt and I stopped out to see Johnny and Kim for happy hour. We were just in time to meet their new baby.
Kim found him in Uncle Henry's of course. He is about three months old and 100 percent pure lovable.

Name that puppy? Since he just came home, he is still nameless. We tossed around several possible names today.

For the first hour in his new home, he appeared quite well behaved, had some fun, cat food, photo ops, and loves his crate. What a good boy!
I'm in love!!!

I found this little guy roaming around the garage last week. He was starving and had a gimp leg. Since I brought him inside and have been feeding him a nutritous, well balanced diet, he has been doing great! I call him Phil Philbrick.
April Fool.
