One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to visit my children. As of this month, visiting my girls in N.C. is the thing to do. I have renewed my relationship with Laura's' 3 children, Jared (soon to be 12), Zach (11 in Oct), and Megan (3 in Sept). How fun! Megan has been so much fun especially when she plays with one of my 4 new pets. Megan will hold Cherrie for hours, putting her in the baby stroller and pushing her around the house. Smokey Gravy, Crooked Tail, and White Sauce are glad its not them. No, this is not any thing from the menu, its my new girls, 4 beautiful Fancy Rats. Sarah found them for me on Craig's List. They came with one very grouchy rat. She did not stick around for more than one day, especially when the pet store discovered she was a he. Consequently, I may be having alot of new babies. Zach thought they would make good food for his Bearded Dragon. I hope there will be no babies. We'll see! Sarah's' daughter, Emmalynne celebrated her first birthday on the 6th. She knew exactly how to celebrate. My adventures continue until the 6th of July. I will be sure to enjoy being a grandma with lots of adventures.
