Summer days are just flying by! I can't believe it's almost the end of July! I have been busy the past few days. Yesterday we had kind of a little "Girl's Day Out". Laura and Lindy and I met Steve for lunch then we went shopping at Swoozie's. I got this lunchbox for school.
Lindy said it looks like her bedspread. Haha
After shopping, we went to see Mama Mia.
I'm probably in the minority here, but I didn't really like it???!! I loved the music and the scenery. And I thought the girl that played the daughter was good. But, in my opinion, Pierce Brosnan can't sing very well and he just seemed a little weird in that role to me. He needs to stick to being James Bond! And I'm really not a huge fan of Meryl Streep. I don't know...it just wasn't one of my favorites.
Last night was my sister-in-law, Debbie's 50th birthday. So we all met at Carraba's to celebrate. Here's the birthday girl with my mother-in-law.
Laura, Ashley, and Mark. (Lindy was on the other side of the table!)
Afterwards, we went back to Steve's parents house for ice cream cake. Mark taught us how to play a new game called "Mafia". It's too hard to explain here, but we played till really late and had a lot of fun!
Debbie is doing something really different and fun tonight for her 50th. We are all going to do it with her, so I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!
Today I met my mom and my friend Nancy for lunch at McAlister's. She goes to my church and has a such a sweet family. I didn't know she had a blog until recently! We had a good time together talking. We always see people we know there...it is a hot spot for lunch. I think I saw literally about eight friends there today!
Since Mark never takes a camera anywhere, I found a few pictures of Mark from Jamaica that other friends had taken and posted on Facebook. These were of a visit to a nursing home in Jamaica. Mark really enjoyed visiting with this woman. Her name was Mary and Mark just loved her.
I was just noticing in this next picture what Mark's friend Philip has on his shirt! These were just old t-shirts that the kids had or that they got from Goodwill. But it just struck me as a funny shirt to wear to a rest home! :) Mark and I laughed about it when I showed him. He said Philip and no one else even noticed it!
These were the only two pictures I could find to share with you. I need to get that boy a camera!
