Saturday and Illinois week coming to an end!!


Here is a stop that we always make at Avanti's in Normal...
these kind people showed up to see us....


Yeap it is Saturday or so they tell me!! When you are away from home you sort of get mixed up on the date and the day..Kind of fun!! SMILE!!

We are still in Rochelle at Julie's house. Katie has been planning this big party at their church for tonight!! What a thing this is going to be!! They are going to be playing BIG BATTLESHIP!! The kids have made Huge battle ships and ships out of cardboard. They are playing it in the gym. I will try to get some pics for you to see.

Julie is doing much better but all of these kids do not help with all that goes on here. She is going to wake up one day and not remember all of this. It all goes by so quickly for sure...Just ask me.


These are old friends that we went to visit up in the Chicago area!!

We have been shopping at my favorite store, Kohl's several times and loving it!! Found some sales!! The only way that I buy.

Mikey and SIL Bill went to the Cubs game today and the CUBBIES WON!! YES!! Glad that they did with Mikey being there...Good of them to do that!!

I had a very pampered pedicure today and enjoyed it..Now my tootsie's are really smoothe and probably happy once again!!

WE have had more ice cream than i ever have..more food than I ever have. Finally found a CURVES in a small town a few miles away and have got to go twice now. Learned some things there too.


This is Tommy the BIG CAT!! He weighs around 22 to23 lbs!!

We leave here in the AM to go back to Bloomington/Normal..Our old stomping grounds to meet a couple in the morning and then one in the afternoon!! Trying to see as many people as we can.

Dad and Mother are happy to be home again. Dad was a bit confused but starting to realize that he is indeed back home again...He has a birthday in just a week...He will be turning 91!!

I am here alone in the RV ...WHY..because it is quiet and well I like my quiet time when I can get it!! Vacations are for that...right??

Will finish this post tonight so that I can show you this game that Katie and all are going to be playing...Hope it all works out like she wants it too..

This is what the gym floor looked like after a few hits and
misses..The red paper plates are the hits and the white are the misses.

This was very clever. There was a tarp in the middle of the gym dividing it...Each team had a regular battle ship game. They planned their strategy by going out on their own side and putting their battleships where they thought they needed to be. Then if the other side called out a number and it was a miss the white paper plate was put on it..IF they hit then a red paper plate went on that square. Really turned out great I think. The kids had a good time. We also had sloppy Joes and a cake that Emily and Katie decorated...


Cute cake...they did all of this themselves..Clever dont you think??

It is late. It was a good day...Missed my hubby all day but spent time with our daughter!! Now it is late and I am tired!! I will get back to everyone once we get home...

FLIP FLOP

Aaah, it was good to read a post from you, Sandy. It feels that you've been away for simply ages. You'll be glad to be home again in a few days.

What a huge cat...a real armful, and he looks sooo fed up with having his picture taken.

Battleship sounds fun and the cake is very imaginative.

Good to hear from you at last, Sandy. Safe travelling.

Mildred said...

Nice to hear from you. Glad your parents are settled back home and glad you are enjoying old friends and a few shopping trips. I love cats and that's one of the biggest I've seen lately!!! Take care.

Glad you are having a good time on your trip, Sandy.

I don't know how the weather has been in Savannah, but it has cooled down to highs in the low 90s here in SW GA... the humidity adds some heat though. But better than those triple digits we had a while back.

Melli said...

Looks and sounds like y'all have been havin' a great time! I was busy as all get out last week with VBS - but it's OVER now for another year! I think I'm getting OLD! I was waaaaaaaaaay tired at the end of this week!

I LIKE that Battleship game! Looks fun! Very creative!

Norma said...

We were just in Rochelle around Easter week--in fact, got lost there! My brother gave us a "short cut." We usually eat an early lunch in Bloomington-Normal when driving back to Ohio.

That cat is huge! Ours weighs about 7 lbs.

Deanna said...

Peggy said...

What fun you are having! You are going to need a vacation to rest up from the vacation. LOL

PEA said...

You are sure having some full days but oh what fun ones they are:-) So glad you're able to meet up with friends as well as spend time with family! That battleship game looks amazing, what a great idea and no doubt everyone had so much fun playing such a big version of the game:-) They did a great job on the cake as well. Look at the size of that kitty...think he needs to go to Curves with you! LOL Keep having fun my friend!! xoxo

I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
