Great Friday..

My son had a doctors appt this
morning.. He has been to a couple
different camp things this year
and church events, but he and I hadnt
had a whole lot of time to do
stuff together this summer .
So today after the doctor we made plans
to spend the day together.

We went to our local SPCA and
visited with the animals. What
fun that was.. With the understanding
that we were JUST VISITING!!!

Then we went and had some
Chinese food for lunch, which we
both love and then off to the movies
to see Karate Kid.. The one with Will Smiths
son.. it was a carbon copy of the
original, but all in all it was a good
family friendly movie.
I truly enjoy his company, and
we had a great time today..
Love these moments..

That's so awesome you guys got to spend the day together! Be careful at that SPCA we were just visiting too when we came back with our new family member (Elvis)LOL I've wanted to see the Karate Kid, I loved the original ones when I was younger. I bet the graphics are more awesome now! Thanks again for stopping by and for your sweet comments on my blog. How is your other son doing with his recovery? You are so dear and kind! Have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings, Jill

Oh, glad you had a great day with your son. Oh, I thought it was funny the movie is called Karate Kid and he's learning Kung Fu :) :) :) I'm glad the movie was good :) :) :)
You do not look like a grandmother...YOu said you had grandkids, but your pictures ...well, very beautiful :) :) Oh, those cats were cute. Do you "visit" a lot at the SPCA? What do you do there? It sounds like it would be a good time. I love animals...especially cats and it would be hard for me to leave, I think...:) :) :) Have a good weekend, Karen. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

That sounds like a great day. I love getting a little one-on-one time with my kids. And I was smiling about the SPCA visit. My kids want a dog so badly and we are trying to wait until we live in a bigger house with a bigger lot before we get one. But if we went to the SPCA, I think that I would have a hard time getting out of there without a dog! I hope you have a great weekend!

What a wonderful day with your son - I love getting to spend special time with the kids - especially individually. It is something you sure have to be INTENTIONAL about or it can easily slip away...

I just found out this past week that they have BIRTHDAY parties at our local SPCA! WOW!! I am sure it has the potential to "drum up" some business :-)

Thank for your sweet comment and thanks for your boldness to share your story of God's Redemption in your life and marriage. There is NOTHING God can't save and WILL when we allow Him too.

Have you read the book "I Do Again" by Jeff & Cheryl Scruggs? You can read more about it here:

Hope you are having an amazing weekend! So nice to "meet"!
