  5. Rosie,

    This post speaks so well of family in the summertime.

    I'm going to add you to my sidebar so I don't just "catch" you when I visit my friend Mrs. Rabe. :-)

    Have a wonderful day!

  6. Hi Rosie, I love the photos of your family and the picnic and food. Looks so nice. I am sure you are all enjoying the warmer weather. It's getting colder here (down under -Australia). Angela

  7. How I love visiting you. I feel as though I just took a nice long ramble alongside you all.

  8. Thanks for sharing the picnic. It makes it feel like I was there (too hot here for a picnic outside!). The pictures of the pizza make me hungry.



  9. Thanks for sharing the picnic with us. With the temps in the 90's here picnic time is over for us....one of the quirks of the South....but cool watermelon is one of the things we so look forward to this time of year.

  10. Rosie, I'm thankful for the lovely pictures of your family and your sharing of your life here in this place. Even though your mom seldom blogs anymore, you are "standing in her stead", but in your own way and with your own style. I would be proud to call you my daughter.


  11. Picnics, family, friends! Some of favorite things!! :)
