Labor Day/Glaserpalooza 2015

For Labor Day Weekend, Zach's sisters and their husbands came to stay with us.  They brought my nephew David, so naturally I had to take a thousand pictures.  *Not exaggerating*  So when I only show you a couple dozen, keep in mind that I did a lot of editing.  I'll be impressed if you get to the bottom of this post.  :)

This is what David does when you tell him to smile.  So. Adorable. 

Love this face!  <3

 "Is it rubbed in?"  Ha!  Zach's first and last experience using zinc sunblock

This was David's first trip to the beach!

and Uncle Zach

 Love this sweet family!

Beautiful Summer

How has your summer been?  One of the highlights of our summer has been our recent trip to Lake George, New York.  We stayed at our friend's vacation home right on the lake.  It was beautiful.  On my first night, there was a meteor shower, which we got to watch on lawn chairs at the edge of the lake.  You could see so many stars.  The company was fantastic, the weather was perfect.  We also went to a horse race at Saratoga Race Course and stayed for a couple nights with Zach's dad and his wife Karen.  

To come: we are excited to have Zach's siblings stay with us over Labor Day weekend.  It may not have a mountain-surrounded lake with clear water, but I like to think Tampa still has lots to offer.  Mark my words - Tampa is on the cusp of becoming one of America's great cities!

VEGAS 2015

Ahh Vegas.  My girl Eileen recently celebrated her 30th with Trista, Shannon and me in Vegas.  We stayed at the Wynn, went to clubs, the Britney Spears show, pool parties and a fabulous restaurant for a short weekend.  :)  We got to see Kaskade, Zedd, Tiesto and Steve Angello.  My idea of a good weekend!

Life Lately

Baseball, football, painting, work and a few fun trips.  Why has it been weeks since I've posted?  My computer is so slow that it has become a total hassle to post.  Because this blog is purely a hobby for me, I only post when I really want to, and with the pain of uploading pictures, I pretty much only post iPhone pictures at this point.  Sad, I know.  It's time for a new computer!  

Things are good here, Zach is currently at a local resort with some of his buddies in a poker tourney, the results of which determine the draft order of the guys' fantasy football league.  So I'm home finishing up my latest painting (see below), grooming the dogs and catching up on some bad reality TV.  Does anyone watch the Bachelor and its various spin-offs?  SUCH a guilty pleasure.  People are willing to behave very badly to be on TV!  

Bucs looked pretty good in their pre-season game.  My boss brought a few of us from his team to see our boys play.  Not bad for a work night.

We went to a Rays game last week, courtesy of our friend Megan's boss.  Here she is at her first ever Rays game - and she got a game ball!  :)

Megan, me and Shannon

What do you think of this latest creation?  It's my last painting in the square series.  I got a little too comfortable with the squares because it takes so little skill to make a cool-looking painting.  On to something a little more challenging.

A Mother-Daughter Moment

Awww, aren't we cute?  Zach snapped this shot of Mom and me snuggling on the chaise in the back yard the other weekend.  :)  We had a lovely day floating around in the pool with Mom and her boyfriend Tony, grilling out and watching the outdoor tv.  I hope you're having a great week!

Father's Day 2015

For Father's Day this year, Daddy, his wife Mary and my half brother Sam came to our house for pool time and a barbecue.  Sam brought his girlfriend and her daughter.  These are the only shots I took, but they're pretty cute.

Tami's Wedding!

Last weekend, Zach and I flew to Albany, New York for Zach's baby sister, Tami's wedding.  We extended our stay and we were able to see some of Zach's high school friends and lots of his family.  I am so, so lucky that Zach's family and friends are such fantastic people.  Fun, loving and good.  

I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few shots from the weekend.

Tami's friend Kyle let me borrow his Tom Ford glasses.  B)

Here we are at a bar close to our hotel after the wedding.

Zach's dad's and stepmom's front yard is gorgeous, no?

These are the flowers from Tami's wedding.  Pretty and wild and perfectly lovely.
