Fresh start in 2010

Well, my friends I know it has been many months since I last blogged. Alot has happened in our lives that have kept me from having the time to blogg. First, my daughter and her husband have parted ways earlier this year. This was was very tough for everyone involved and as the wedding was basically my last big post it was kinda hard to get back into it cause quite frankly I didn't know what to post about. Sometimes you just need a break for a while to get motivated again. Plus, my brother getting on my case about not blogging (yes he reads my blogs) and how if Janeen can find the time to blog in her busy life so can I lol. Second, I began watching my beautiful eight month old granddaughter Audrina. YES, I said 8 months old, it has been THAT long, can you believe it? Anyway, I watch her on Friday nights and Saturday day, my bonding time and that in itself took me away from my free blogging time.

So today's post is dedicated to my brother Don so he will get off my case on blogging, lolol.

Don and I took Audrina and his son Bradley to Ocean Beach in San Francisco last Saturday. The weather was beautiful for a while but then it took a quick turn to the cold and windy side. Although I live only about 45 minutes from San Francisco, I rarely go as I hate driving the streets of it. As it was it took us FOREVER to get to the beach cause of the bumper to bumper traffic on a late Saturday afternoon which is unheard of!

I don't know what she was looking at but she is a very serious child. Takes a lot to make her laugh or smile. It's like she is just taking everything in that tiny brain and analysing it to see whether it is worth laughing at or not. Isn't this a cute hat, got it at the 99 cent store!

I bought her this tiny, I mean tiny bucket at the store the day before it was too cute and just her size.

She really loved the sand. This was the only smile caught on camera. I think she liked picking it up and watching it fall out of her hands and then she realized she could throw it, ya, that was fun.

Oh boy can she crawl in the sand. It was like she just glided over it like it was ICE. Very nerve wracking really.

She saw some pelicans and she was OFF to catch one. Oh how she loved to watch the waves too.

Her she is sitting with her Great Uncle Don when we first got there. So serious she is.....
Thank you for stopping by, I have a few more posts to do so stay tuned.

It's wonderful to hear from you again!'s hard to believe your granddaughter is 8 months old already! She is a beauty. I'm sorry to hear of your daughter and her husband's split. I can imagine how hard that is for all involved.
A happy spring and summer to you!

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's break-up; I hope she is doing well.

Your granddaughter is adorable, and I can tell you are one seriously doting grandmother!

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by to say hi!

I am sorry too, to hear that things didn't work out for your daughter. But sometimes "life" happens and you just have to roll with the punches.
Your granddaughter is just adorable. Hard to believe she is 8 mos. old already. You wonder what she is thinking when she sees all the sand and the waves at the beach.
I am going to be a gramma again in November. My son and d.i.l. are having their first child. It will be my 5th grand child. I am so excited.
Glad that you posted. I haven't been doing much blogging either. But it's nice to reconnect.

Hi Melody,

It is great to see you back. I am really sorry to hear about your daughter.

Love all the photos of her at the beach. We will have to take Joseph to the beach sometime. It is really close by for us but it is just a bit too cold for me to consider taking him yet.
