Mother's Day at the Hilton brunch

I know. I know. Mother's day has come and past. And so has Father's day. Well, Here are some more images from Mother's Day. It was fun and the food was great. The day was pristine.

This first picture was from the decorations inside the Hilton. I loved the whimsical stars just floating about.

Marine Forces Reserve Show Band and Brass Band

The main music for the Evenings in Seville for Military Appreciation Week was the Marine Forces Reserve Show Band and Brass Band! I was really surprised. I thought it was going to be really ho-hum. But did they surprise us! Wonderful show. I would go to hear them again.

McGuires Irish Band

Part of the Evenings in Seville for Military Appreciation Month, was the McGuires Irish Band.

Not until this evening did I realize how a bagpipe effects me emotionally. When they began playing Amazing Grace, it brought tears to my eyes. Honest. It was so moving.

More Lulu's

I did a post in mid May from our trip to Lulu's, and it took me a bit to get back to the rest of my Lulu's images, but here they are!

If nothing else, Lulu's is colorful. Brilliant sherbert colors everywhere. I was really taken by these beach chairs.

Our beach...

Many of these images were taken last week and some from Mother's Day. I went out to the beach with Nikki after work. I had been so upset all day. Each time I took a break, the TV was talking about the oil spill being only miles from our shore. I had to go. And so did many others. To feel. To smell. To see. To experience.

For those of you that have been wondering. The tar balls have since started washing up on shore. Maybe I will go out today. *sigh*

I really hope to see many many days of this. People enjoying the beach. Relaxing. Splashing. Walking. Just soaking it all in. It is so good for the soul. It fills you up...

The Homestead

I enjoy our home. I find it peaceful and relaxing. I'm surrounded by things I love...family, plants, things that make me happy. Here is a sampling.

Step out my back door and you will find a mini garden. Included in the garden is my pot of herbs and my little "HERBS" sign.
