Birthday's and Motorcycles

 

May has a couple of birthdays and mother's day for us, however the focus was only on one birthday this year and that was our daughter's Jennifer. She turned the big 3 0 this year. We dressed up the sanctuary and pulled off a real surprise party for her. Friends all the way from Colorado came including local friends and family. She was very surprised! And we had such a good time everyone forgot to take pictures. 


The week after Jenn's surprise party we rode in a fundraising five-state poker run out of Guyman, Oklahoma.  It was roughly a 300 mile ride to Guymon, 300 miles during the poker run and 300 miles home. The airBnB we stayed at was top of the line - we're thinking on going back just for a get away weekend. 
The poker run was a big success with nearly 1,000 bikes. I'd never seen or been apart of anything that big. It was fun.











Jimi and I decided to go visit my girlfriend, Brenda in Colorado for an overnighter. We hadn't seen her in a couple of year and long overdue.


While in Colorado we also met up with a friend I haven't seen in more than 20 years. It was great to see Erin.


Aubree stayed with me for a few days and helped me get some accounting done.





She helped Grandpa repair a paper mache mask - so cute.

Relief

 

Having both my covid shots is such a relief. Life is opening up again. I'm able to see family, spend a lot more time with Aubree, go to church and more. Life is good!

Jimi installed the solar panels on the roof.


Aubree was on a soccer team, but really didn't want to play.




I had been saving my reward points and finally cashed them in to buy this Brother serger - no happy!

And after working hard and saving for months I was able to buy a larger embroidery machine. 
This machine will open to door for many projects. So  excited!!

Visitors

 

It feels like we had a busy March or at least I just got a lot of pictures. And we had many visitors. First on the guest list was this deer that seems to be hanging out in out back yard more often than not. 



Aubree came to stay with me for a few days and in addition my great great niece, just two months old came for a visit and Aubree got to hold baby Zayleigh. She was so excited.





Of course - puppy dog pancakes for breakfast.




Our new toy has something like 1800 games. So overwhelming, but so so fun.


I made birthday cupcakes for Aubree's birthday party and she helped me decorate them.



She liked her alphabet quilt.



I received my second shot. 


Over the past three years I've worn out the mechanics on my embroidery foot - no problem though - I just ordered a new one and it's on the way.

Jimi decided we should buy and install solar panels. He found an outstanding deal and drove to Texas to pick them up. Next step will be installation.




Jimi ordered me a helmet for our upcoming motorcycle trip.
