Saturday we went to our youngest son's 40th surprise birthday party put on by his wife and 2 children out at the lake and what a wonderful time we had. There were lots of relatives and friends and our middle son Dan and his wife brought their ski boat out and took the kids for rides and tubing and the little one's also enjoyed wading in the channel.
Isn't this just the prettiest little park? It's a private park just for the residents of the Lake.
Here's Darren with Aidan in the tree
And then a neighbors dog came over to see all the fun and look at the size of this little gal! lol

someone got lucky to go first!!!
Isn't this huge Willow tree just beautiful...several houses along the lake and channel have these gorgeous trees.
We had lots of wonderful food and chatting and then came home to relax.
My brother and his wife came to the party and then to our house afterwards for the weekend and so today we headed for Illinois to the flea markets and I got a haul! I'll post pictures of what I got in one of my next posts but thought there were enough pictures this time around.
I found a Pewter creamer and sugar for $5.00 as well as a set of Pewter handle silverware that I got for $12.00 and the adorable silverware caddy for $5.00 - a bargain for sure!!!
I also got 3 different size mache boxes that are going to be covered with fabric...they were $1.00 each. So I think I did some good bargain shopping today.
After the flea market we went for lunch at one of the Golf courses and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and then off to one of our favorite shops that closed just 10 minutes before we got there!
And so we drove up the road to the Apple Orchard and it was closed - not much luck so we headed back home but first to the store for more food for Monday because we have 12 cousins and friends coming over for the day and evening to play cards/dominos and whatever else and then we will have dinner and my brother and wife will be here for that as well.
I'm making 3 different casseroles and the rest are bringing things....it's an End of Summer Get-
So after going out to dinner tonight we relaxed in the screen room with Brownie Sundaes! And now everyone is in bed and I took this time to play catch up on the computer.
Guess that's it for me tonight....now I'm off to do some blog surfing.
