I'm Somebody now......

Anyone remember that line by Steve Martin in the movie "The Jerk" because his name was listed in the phonebook?

I entered a contest by our local phone company. You were to submit pictures of the local area (within the county) and they would judge those photos and pick one for the cover of the phone book for this year. GUESS WHO WON????? ME !!!! lol.

I submitted a picture of the Rockville bridge, which has some history that you can view here.

Its the largest stone arch bridge in the US.

Here is the actual picture that was submitted.

The newest Civil Engineer

This past weekend was great ! All I can say about Pittsburgh is WOW ! I bet we got lost (and that's with navigation!) 6 times and that was only between our Hotel and Dylan's' house. Every other street is a one way and its not every other, its so random and confusing. We only live about 15 miles north of Harrisburg, Pa and thought that was big city but its nothing compared to Pittsburgh.

I think this was called a "Tram", it went up and down the hill right beside the restaurant.

So Friday night Dyl took us to a restaurant called The Georgetown, it sat "up on the hill" looking over the city, boy was that beautiful. I took some pictures but I think they came out kind of grainy. I have never paid this much for a meal in my life but the food and the view was worth it.

We were on the 6th floor and Malia loved sitting on the wide window sill looking at all the commotion on the ground. These were taken right before we left for the graduation ceremony

Malia was pretty good during the whole ceremony. She amused herself by trying on a few different pairs of sunglasses.

She had the best view in the house.

But then she fell asleep on Leigh's lap for most of it.

This kid does not want school to be over yet. I think he is seriously thinking of making a career out of it. lol.

Dylan is the first person in my family to graduate college, we are soooooo proud of him !!!!

An exciting weekend coming up!!!

I cant believe it's here already! Our oldest son, Dylan is graduating this weekend from the
University of Pittsburgh with a Civil Engineering degree. Wow, those 4 years flew by way to fast. I think he even wishes it wasn't over, because now comes the "real world". lol.
We are sooooooo proud of him!!! Pictures will be posted next week of our weekend in Pittsburgh.

Meanwhile here are some pictures taken this past Sunday, we spent the whole day outside.

Its been a little while.....

Jeez I cant believe that its been so long since I have had an actual post.

Not much new really, except Malia is really starting to talk now. Finally, whew!

BUT, I did finally get something that I have been wanting a looooooong time. A dwarf bing cherry tree! Whoohoo. I love me some bing cherries ! lol.

Of course I had to get a Black Tartain cherry tree to pollinate the Bing cherry tree.

And Malia just enjoyed being outside all day.

(I think someone needs their bangs cut, but I really want to let them grow out now.)
