 old pals...
former "River Rats"...
they grew up in the same neighbor hood...
so nice to have old friends around.....
 
 Hubby taking a turn.....
(I stay on the bank)....
 
 my avocado...I started it from a seed...
I don't know if it will ever grow any avocados...
but it is growing...so I am happy...
 
 we have watermelons...
lots of baby melons...
some are on the fence...
Hubby is building little cradles for them...
out of old t-shirts....
 

a little visitor...taking advantage of all the May flies...
smart bird...


it was fun watching everyone take a turn on the jet skis...
I think the adults were just as excited as the kiddos...
the men even more so...
of course they are all just kids at heart...
back to work Monday...
ugggg....
so enjoyed the weekend....
but back to nose to the grind stone...
until I can sneak off to the lake again...

I really like that first photo! Good capture. And then the watermelon sent me over the edge. Great post.

Love the little bird, he looks so pretty! The jet ski looks like a lot of fun.

How do you tell when those watermelons are ripe? I would be checking them every day!!!
I found a little garden at the side of the home my Mom is living in, and I took some photos of the plants last night.

Love all the wonderful photos...summer exquisite! Yes, it's so important to have close friends nearby. The two River Rats look so happy. Love your avacado plant and your watermelons!
