WHAT’S HAPPENING AT WHITE LILAC FARMHOUSE

Skydiving

Adventures In Sundays Life Among The Blooms

My children, Amanda and Zach decided to go for some adventures in skydiving. It is Amanda’s second time skydiving. Zach had never been skydiving before.

My husband took my daughter when she was 21. The two of them had a blast.

Although Jim did not skydive this time, he looked on as a spectator. I am sure he was as excited as the kids were to jump out of a plane. Jim has always enjoyed some adventures outdoors. And, loves to be with the children.

Zach was excited until he got to the doorway. I believe the look on his face is like “Oh no, here we go”! He said it was an amazing experience.

My daughter’s photos crack me up. Her tandem partner for the jump was named “Pony Boy”. He was equipped with a unicorn something on his helmet. The look on her face is priceless.

Have I ever skydived? Nope and it will never happen either. I am afraid of heights. There is plenty of sky for them to enjoy. My feet will stay on the ground.

Vacation

This past week I was able to get away with my bestie, Colleen to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. My parents have a second home (condo) in Surfside. When they are not there, I am able to use it.

Colleen and I tried to get in some rest and relaxation. However, we had some adventures of our own. She took ill while we where away. I felt so bad for her.

The time we did enjoy together was wonderful. The two of us went to see The Little Mermaid in 3D. It was amazing. The special effects of the movie was amazing. I felt like a little child wanting to reach out and touch things that were not there.

Family Birthdays

I came back early from vacation. Just in time to attend a fun family birthday and retirement party.

Saturday we had a wonderful time celebrating my Aunt Delores’ 70th birthday and retirement. My Aunt Delores is fun and loving. She is always there if you need her.

When I was little she use to babysit me. She has some stories to tell! Especially how bad I was as a little girl. I was always getting into trouble for something (mischief). Gary, my mother’s youngest brother and I are 10-months a part in age. We grew up more like a brother and sister. Both of us went to the same school. Oh the stories we can tell on each other! LOL
