Beautiful Day...

Nephew with his two pretty daughters
Sunday was beautiful here in south Florida. The weather was mild and partly sunny, but what made the day perfect was a day spent with family.

Our nephew, his lovely wife and their two daughters came to visit for the afternoon. The girls went swimming and their parents, Handsome and I had a grand time catching up.
The girls with their mom.
I know you aren't going to believe this, but I lost a photograph. Poof! Gone! I took a picture of our nephew's family with Handsome before we ate dinner. When I went to download the images into my computer, the only group picture was missing. There's a lesson to be learned about going back and forth between taking the pictures and reviewing the pictures. I didn't realize the group picture was gone until after they left, and I have to say I was pretty p.o.'d mildly peeved to find it gone, so I'm sharing these instead. It's a good thing I still have my memory. We'll be talking about our visit for a long time.

By the time you read this, they'll be back home, but we're so glad they took time from their vacation to visit with us. We really need to do this much, much more often!
Handsome has begun playing with the Port Charlotte Concert Band and his first concert with the group in tonight. I'm really looking forward to sitting in the audience. No video recording tonight. Just the pure pleasure of watching my husband make music.

Thank you Donna, you are very kind & I have sent you an email. I learnt the hard way with the photographs and try to always download a copy now before I edit or delete. I also learnt to always carry the spare battery, especially while travelling! Hugs, Tracee xx

Tina Eudora said...

I just sent you an email Donna as it seems somehow you have the wrong address for me. I hope you get the email in time...:)
You are such a generous and gracious person and I am so grateful to know you!
I hope little Tag is feeling better? I will be watching for his post tomorrow...
