School's Out For Summer

Are you singing the song now, too?! Yesterday was finallly our last day of school. We celebrated with family friends. Ashley is now officially a Senior, Jake and Emily, Juniors in college, and Lexi 'passed' to 3rd grade. Grandma will celebrate a 'big' birthday in July.
We made pizzas on the grill. If you have never tried it, I highly recommend it. This was our 2nd attempt. Last summer, we rushed the process and some were burnt. Last night was much better.

Kari was in charge of dessert. She brought the sweet little waffle cups, ice cream and a variety of toppings. I hope this is just the first of many summer get-togethers.

Thanks for coming by my page. You seem like my kind of lady.
My son Rian is a chef and being from the South cooking is must. I look forward to visiting you again.

Happy Sunday!

Love pizza on the grill! What's you favorite toppings?

Earler this year the power went out right before dinner so I grilled the pizzas. Next thing you know we had a little party as the hungry neighbors came over to see what smelled so good :D

Thanks for stopping by my blog with your kind comment!

Yippee! Free for the summer. Thank you for visiting my blog. I have been super unorganized and a bit off kilter moving, or I would have been here sooner!

Congrats on making it through another year!! Schools here are still in session for another week. To answer your question, yes, Twitter can be accessed on your cell. I have never done it but many do. Internet access on my phone just goes beyond my tech abilities! We kept accessing it by mistake and getting charged so we've had it blocked. Maybe one day, I'll be that coordinated!
