last Friday's storm system that brought hail to the valley for the second time in three weeks, we are enjoying beautiful days, but, they are beginning to heat up.
And, the fun has "heated" up too!
I shared the photos of the gun range project. So, I thought I would share with you the fun that most
of us are having using it. Mark and Mike are really having a good time and enjoying the results of their hard work of getting the range finished to this point.
Then, there is
is "dead eye" Susie and her
side kick, Niles!
Now, as for
myself, who never even held a gun, I haven't exactly reached the "fun" part of this, but they tell me that me and my 380 are
doing just fine! Well...maybe, someday, I will have as much fun as they seem to have.
But, in the meantime, I would rather organize a party. And, a party we had. Mark has been wanting to do a shrimp boil, so we decided it would be a perfect end of season party for our
afternoon swim group of girls and
So, while they enjoyed an afternoon at the pool, Mark
heated up the pans on his newly purchased burner and I started
lining up the ingredients.
When the water was boiling, he and his
trusty assistant kept me busy bringing them layer after layer of
potatoes, carrots, chicken, and corn. Next came
the onions and the sausage. And, finally,
the shrimp. While the shrimp cooked, and the
swimmers gathered, Mary helped organize the
other side dishes.
Then, it was time to
dump the pots. At this point, the only thing left to do was
say, "come and get it"!
It was a great evening and a fun way to spend time with friends. For many of our group a perfect
way to end this season.
Today, dawned a beautiful day in the RGV, and along with several of the girls, we got together and rode our bikes over to the
National Butterfly Center.
we learned, and
we saw lots of butterflies....but,
before the day heated up too much, we made our way back to the park and headed to the pool!
