Hello, It's been a busy couple of weeks. Alan, me, my mom and the kids drove down to Virginia Beach the last week of July. We stayed at my Aunts house. I haven't been there since I graduated high school which was 16 years ago....yikes!! Doesn't seem that long ago. We went to Busch Gardens, Virgina Aquairium, and did some shopping at the outlets. We had a great time.
We also had this past Saturday a memorial for my Aunt Janet who passed away a couple of months ago. My cousin Tony did the service and his wife Penny sang the Lords Prayer so beautifully. It was nice to have a service done by someone who actually knew Aunt Janet very well. Then Tony had asked everyone in the room if they wanted to share anything they wanted about Aunt Janet and a few people got up and shared the way Aunt Janet had touched there lives. I guess I was too nervous. But if I had had the courage to get up I would of wanted to say that I was greatful that she helped my parents in purchasing her home on Long Island. I don't think that I or my family would of had the same quality of life if we lived in Queens. It's amazing how something that didn't seem like that big of a deal when I was a kid is now. They say everything happens for a reason.
Today Alan and I are going to see the band Rush at Jones beach. The only problem with that is the weather. The concert is outdoors and the weather outside doen't look too good at all in fact it is thundering right now. If it thunders they ususally delay the concert or cancel it since they play right on the water.
I am going to try to get the many pictures I have from vacation up sometime this week.
