Long Nice Summer

First off I will NOT say...sorry I haven't posted anything or did you miss me or I have been busy. I won't say any of that. Nope, I will say look at what a summer it has been.

July at Disneyland

Didier (Bucket Head) gets bigger.

Playing Frisbee at the park.

Our anniversary trip to Paso Robles and Cayucus.

Headed to New Jersey for John's Family Reunion.

Wildwood, New Jersey and John's childhood memories. Yummy pizza at Mack's, drinking Birch Beer (like root beer).

A visit to DC to see our nations capitol, the White House, Lincoln and Washington Memorials, Korean War Memorial...

And ending the summer, of course a Labor Day Party for our family and friends. Good way to end.

It has been a great busy summer. I am ready for the cooler, shorter days.

To My Mother

This is a special day, Mothers Day. It's the day we honor our Mom's for who they are and what they have done and given to us.

I have a Mom, her name is Mary K. She is a great Mom. Through the years she has taught me to love this creation that God has so blessed us with. All through our lives she had gardened and created her own little paradise out of the land that my Father and she were so very blessed with.

It's amazing to think of all the new life they left in their wake. Every new home was immediately planted with trees. And as the seasons changed new life sprang forth.
Not only had she taught me to create with trees and plants, but she blessed me when I was very young with the love of horses. I am not exactly sure of the age but she bought a pony for us, Goldy. That was the beginning for me. That day forward my life has been involved in some way or other with horses. They are my passion and Mom gave that to me. What a lasting gift. If only there were some way to repay that.

Today I honor you, Mom, with pictures of pieces of me. Thank you for all you are and have been through the years.

Your daughter, Buffy

Life Uninterrupted

I Am Here. Not there but here. Life is but a freight train headed north and south and east and west all at the same time. The Rennie Clan has undergone some great things in a few months. Let me give you the highlights.
John and I stole away for a trip to Disneyland. We haven't been there for quite sometime. Such memories. I became teary eyed as we walked under the train and entered the main street. This was the place of my preteen and teen years. Many hours of pure fun.
To make things even more fun, our good friends, Jeff and Debi showed up.
March was the Great Birthday month. Not only does the month of March include great ones such as Ron Howard, Jon Bon Jovi and Dr. Suess, it also includes my brother-in-law, Paul, my niece Meghan, but most importantly me and Dakota.
We had a great celebration for our little Dakota Jo Ann's big first Birthday. Amy, Caidan, Chris, Patty, Eric, Meghan, Robb, Nancy, Emily, Joan, Paul and Stewart were able to join us and many great friends.

As you can see, Dakota taught those of us in attendance of her gala how to properly eat you Birthday cake.
We were fortunate enough to have Jenn, Shawn and Dakota with us for the week. What a joy it was. Short time, but precious time.
The day before the Keyes left us, we were joined by or newest family member.
His name is Didier Dogba Rennie, born January 31st, 2010. Named after...da da dah...a professional futballer from the Ivory Coast, currently playing for Chelsea United. He's a gorgeous rottweiler. Full of himself and already in control of the rest of us.
Just like a Rennie. No respect for the woman behind the camera.
But cute none the less.

We move on...April. Not that April doesn't have a few famous Birthdays either. Some included are Lon Chaney, SR, Alec Baldwin (oo sorry, John), Tony Orland and Doris Day. But the best of the best was John's. Yup he is now %! years old. His Birthday was quiet and sweet. Dinner with family and friends, and a GREAT gift from LaChelle. "I'll be your Huckleberry"
And then things slowed a little bit. We began to catch up on our house , yard and work work. And now that we are almost caught up, John and I are leaving for Vegas baby. We are going to see Brookes and Dunn The Last Rodeo Tour. A great Birthday surprise from John for my Birthday.

You All Take Care. I will try to stay in touch better in the months to come.
