I'm surfing usa

I Love "Surfin' USA" ... the fast, happy sound of it. and the lyrics always add a lot! :)

If everybody had an ocean

Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californ-i-a
You'd seem 'em wearing their baggies
Huarachi sandals too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A.
You'd catch 'em surfin' at Del Mar
(Inside outside U.S.A.)
Ventura County line
(Inside outside U.S.A.)
Santa Cruz and Trestles
(Inside outside U.S.A.)
Australia's Narrabeen
(Inside outside U.S.A.)
All over Manhattan
(Inside outside U.S.A.)
And down Doheny way
(Inside outside)
Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

We'll all be planning out a route
We're gonna take real soon
We're waxing down our surfboards
We can't wait for June
We'll all be gone for the summer
We're on surf-ari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.
Haggerty's and Swami's
(Inside outside U.S.A)
Pacific Palisades
(Inside outside U.S.A)
San Onofre and Sunset
(Inside outside U.S.A)
Redondo Beach L.A.
(Inside outside U.S.A.)
All over La Jolla
(Inside outside U.S.A.)
At Waimea Bay
(Inside outside)

Everybody's gone surfin'

Surfin' U.S.A.

Everybody's gone surfin'

Surfin U.S.A

Everybody's gone surfin'

Surfin U.S.A.

Everybody's gone surfin'

Surfin' U.S.A.

Yeah,Everybody's gone surfin'

Surfin' U.S.A.

Makes you want to go surfing doesn't it? ☺

I've embarrassed myself plenty of times with trying out surfing with buggie boards... it's a sight~ ☺

but fun...

I remember when we were at the beach last summer, and I was relaxing quietly on my inner tube, riding the waves~ I didn't have much control over where I was going~ {yeah, I know, I should have gotton off then, and there.} And this huge was comes along, flips me backward off the float into the water, and my white sunglasses, which were resting on my head, are gone. (we now say that a whale is wearing them ☺) I had have a head of sandy hair, and a salt water flavored  mouth. That actually happened to me twice that vacation. It was always funny to go on a crazy ride like that, and then get your head out from under the water, and look up to everyone acting like nothing had happened. :) haha~
Happy Summer... I'm off to fold some laundry :)

p.s~  folding laundry is my favorite past time for the summer ;)

frankly my dears

I feel like dancing on the beach in the setting sun..

but  it  would help  if  I  had  a  beach   to  dance  on. :) any  ideas? ☺

[those were not taken by me, wish they were :) ]

just to tell you

that I love summer.

and riding through a big open parking lot, and throwing up your hands and squealing. :)
and little boys giving their Mama flowers..
and some more little boys covered in shaving cream... in the hot afternoon.
that have smiles that out shine the whiteness of the cream.
and make your heart sing.
I also love peaceful bedrooms, with antique beds.
and beautiful painted eggshells. {no, I did not do that, my Grandmother gave it to me, I am not sure who did it, but whoever did, they have talent.}

and fun summer toenail Polish..

chubby baby hands..
and feet..
and more bright smiles..
and legs that shake with unsteadiness when they stand up..

and funny expressions. :)
~and late nights sitting on the porch railing with my sister, singing.
~and much, much more..

What do you love?

my men

☺☺☺ they are three tough cookies ☺☺☺I guess the harsh glares, and crossed arms gave it away... :)


and happy Father's day~ God blessed me with a wonderful Daddy... I love you Daddy!

this is what summer is really all about

Blueberry picking. Early morning outings. Eating chocolate chips and reading.

That is really what Summer is all about~ What do you like to do?

drive through the country...

yesturday we went to go pick up wheat and butter.

so we drove through the country...
on the hunt for those two things...
down dirt roads...
and past fields...
and big barns

like this one -----
and in the end...

I sure was glad I had brought the camera along...

[i was ready]

to take the plunge
and whenever you take a plunge no matter what area in life it can be sCarY. Even when trying new things off the diving board. :)

this past weekend I was able to spend a lot of time with my Grandmother.

She was (is)  in the hospital, I spent the afternoon with her, and spent the night with her.

She is a wonderful woman.

Fun, loving, giving, and  encouraging.

Even though she is not in the best shape health wise, she is still the same Grandmother I have known all my life. We had the best time, we laughed and laughed. :)

We stopped by my cousins on the there, we had a good time, even though it was short!

Bye now~

I know it looks like a three year old attacked my blog... it looks awful!!!! I promise it will be fixed very soon!!
