Hello and welcome to a Very Pinky 4th of July Pink Saturday! Be sure to stop by and visit Beverly of How Sweet the Sound to get a link to all the other participants. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.

I'm wishing you all a peaceful, fun and wonderful 4th of July and a very Happy Canada Day too!

Not much planned for us, hubby and I will probably just cook something up on the grill and enjoy and nice quiet day on the porch. We are busy planning our summer vacation, were planning a trip to Lewes, Deleware. Has anyone ever been there? It appears to be nice and alot of historical sites to visit there.

I would like to take this time to thank all of our brave military for serving and keeping us safe and sound.

We are so proud of our son Bob who is serving in the Army Nat'l Guard and our grandson Joe who is serving in the US Navy. Joe is doing well in dental school in San Diago, he's in the top of his class and should be headed to the East Coast in Sept. We will be able to visit him often when he's there.
Our hero Bob, so blessed that he made it home safe and sound from Afghanistan.

Our handsome sailor.

A pretty pink pitcher that I picked up at an antique mall this week. I got some other cute things which I will post about later.

A yummy lemon cake that I made for my Scripture Study covered dish lunch this week.

My cute little kitties relaxing on the well by the porch. We fill that green bowl with ice cold water from the well and they love it.

Pretty pink flowers on the porch.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. I wish you much happiness on this 4th of July!

Hugs, Shirl

Shirl, You must be ver proud. And we are very thankful. They are indeed heros. But I must say the fact that you have raised them to be fine men, makes you a shero.
Have a safe & happy holiday.
