June 27th, I went to April's and picked up Cash.  He was going to the Zoo the next day with Todd and Michelle.  He was pretty excited about it.  We had to go see Pa Great and then drive the little blue truck.  Around bedtime, he said he didn't want to go.  I wasn't sure how he would be in the morning.
June 28:
Cash woke up smiling.  He said, this is the day I go to the Zoo.  He ate breakfast and we got his  stuff ready.

The last picture should  be the first.  Todd and Michelle had their hands full with Cash and her two nephews, Liam and Jaxon.  They all had a good time.  Cash DID NOT want to go to the Snake House.  Him and Aunt Michelle didn't go in.
After they got home, Cash needed to go see Pa Great.  We don't stay long but he like to go.
Cash had spent the night with us again.  We filled the day with lots of play, driving the truck, going to see Pa Great and having a picnic out in the yard.
Mike came over after work to pick up Cash.
I am grateful for my family and they can all do things together to have fun.

Last Weekend of June:

April was going out with some friends.  She brought the kids over after work to spend the night.  They played outside and drove the truck around.  I think it was a good buy.  Both kids can use it.  Cash drives and Iva sits in the passenger seat.  It has seatbelts.  Cash has to go in slow gear when Iva is with him.  He forgot once and put it in high gear. Grandpa had to talk to him about that.  He pouted a little while and then he was fine.  He is in a pouting mood now.  Not that often but it is cute to watch him at this stage.  If he continues, it might get old.   Iva did real well until bedtime, then she started looking around for her Mom.  She cried for awhile and then went to sleep.
Cash and Pa had to go to Vienna to get feed and go to the Quik Spot to get bug juice and chips.  This is their usual trip when Cash is over.
April came over mid-morning.  She gave Iva a bath and got her ready to go to an Elrod reunion in Belle.  There was quite a few there this year.  The family has a good bond.  They always look out for each other.
While we were at the park, we took the kids to the playground.  Cash loves the slides and Iva loves to swing.
We had very nice weather for the day.  Not too hot and a nice breeze blowing.
I had a very good picture of the whole family but somehow lost it.  Even with that many people, it turned out good.

                                                               I am grateful for my Elrod family.

Long time-no see

It feels like ages since I've been on here.  I went over two weeks without internet.  Lots of catching up
to do.  Hopefully, I will have the time this week to try and get caught up.
I like my new job.  The computer system has changed quite a bit since I worked at Black Gold, so I've got a lot to learn.  The worst part is balancing out all the money that comes in from The Centre and Splash Zone.  Hopefully, I'm getting the hang of it.  Plus, I'm going to start doing it every day; that should help a lot.

                                                                        I am thankful for a change of jobs.
