Found it!!!

Posting to my blog from my lap top has it's downsides. I carry the thing from room to room and sometimes I've been known to loose track of the cable to my camera , which makes it extremely difficult to upload pictures. It took me 20 minutes of searching this morning, but I finally found it. Yippee!!!

My parents recently arrived home from their winter hiatus to Arizona and Mexico, so last night all of the family got together at their home for dinner. My assignment was to bring a salad so I settled on one of my favorites; tortellini salad. Very quick and easy to make. It was a real hit and my bowl came home empty.

The grandkids had a great time, as always. My dad broke out the paper rocket launcher, which we all pitched in and bought for him last Father's Day. It's a great thing for one of those men who loves gadgets and it's always a hit with the kids! Here's a picture of my dad, who rarely actually uses the rocket launcher, but loves to see the kids have a great time, and DD2, who is getting ready to send her rocket into space. It's amazing what 30 lbs. of compressed air can do. These rockets will shoot 100 to 200 feet into the air. The weather was great...not too breezy. Only a few of the rocket landed on the neighbor's roofs and in their backyards. LOL!
Here's a cute picture of my mom. We were teasing her because she was finishing off the last sliver of pie from the pie tin, while holding cotton candy between her legs. Can you ever have too much of the good stuff?!


  1. Hi, thanks for calling in and leaving a comment. Great rocket launcher! I have a 6 year old who would go to town with that little toy!
    The Spring fling quilt looks great. I hope you kept all those inch or bigger scraps to make crumb quilts with! Look at Tonya at Lazy gal to see what I mean! Cheers, Tracey

  2. Looks like you all had a great time, Kairle! Bet you're glad to have your folks back, and I'm sure they were glad to see all of you!

  3. Looks like a good you have a recipe for the salad that you can share? :o)

  4. Cool rocket launcher! Just watched a great, inspirational movie,based on a true story, about a boy who learned to make his own rockets: October Sky. Highly recommend it!
