Last Sunday for Mother’s Day,  we had a busy day.  The first part was spent with Thomas the Tank at the Medina Railroad Museum.  I’m really glad we went last weekend – we had beautiful weather, not the ark-building weather we’ve had this weekend…  This spring has been sooooo wet.  I really hope this isn’t a sign of how the summer is going to go 

The event was really well run and we all had a lot of fun.  That night, the kids were asking my sister for their train tickets so they could go again  laughing

My Happy Niece

The museum was pretty cool too.  I’ve been at the railroad station before, but I hadn’t been inside – the model railroad display they have set up is HUGE!!!!  I highly recommend visiting there if you ever get the chance  thumbs up


However, the whole day wasn’t all fun and games…

I thought I broke my camera.  I had banged it pretty hard accidently and wasn’t able to take any pictures after that.  Fortunately when I got home, after futzing around with it for a while, I managed to get it working again.  Thank goodness.  I love my camera.

After the afternoon in Medina, we went to my sister’s house for Mother’s Day dinner and picnicking – again, we couldn’t have asked for better weather… but in our horsing around, Casey put a hole in my favorite pair of jeans.

And I messed up my back.


Except this time it’s my upper back, not my lower back from before.

It’s a week later and my back is still killing me.

I’ve never had upper back pain before and this is just as bad as lower back back, except with different issues.

I really hope this is a fluke thing and my back works itself out and gets back to normal soon – well, as much as normal as it can get…  hmm

My Mittsy was a black lab.  She was the best dog in the world. 

I think she has come back reincarnated…



Yep.  That’s Mittsy’s spirit in another dog  laughing

Royal Wedding

I watched the Royal Wedding – not live, because of work, but one of the endless repeats being shown on a dozen different stations.

I consider it to be a historical event and it was fun to watch…

I haven’t really followed much about William and Kate, but they look good together.

I was fascinated by the hats of the guests.  I guess that if you are a rich or prominent lady in England, a hat is a necessary accessory – and the odder, the better.  There were a few I thought were very pretty and flattering, but most of them made me laugh…

I loved the carriage ride at the end – that was so romantic 

…and I couldn’t believe how old Charles looked!

Best wishes to the new couple
