my trip back east was great! it was nice to escape the high heat here in southern cal, and by the time i got back, it was beautiful summer weather once again! some pics to share with you.... the stargazer lillies were in full bloom, and so beautifully scented. i guess i missed the blossoming of the regular wild tiger lillies that are all down by the river and next to the creeks, wild as ever!

the main reason i went back was for my cousin's wedding... here are lisa and adam getting married!!!

cousin gavin walking his mom, junie, down the aisle!

my cousin's sara and erin, wearing their latte colored gowns! :D

my cousin lisa and her husband, adam, have their first dance as husband and wife!

arleen REALLY gets down, down to the ground....

that's all for now. more to come.... not alot of shows this month, but there is so much going on, i can't seem to fit everything in!!! :D stay tuned for more pics and stuff! XOXO

went to see my friend patty's kittens yesterday (which are available to be adopted out to a good family, by the way...) and had fun playing with them.... they are sooo cute. we think there are 2 boys and a girl, but sometimes that changes when you take them to the vet! :D

aren't they just too cute for words???

after playing, all three went into their bed and laid all over each other. hard to tell that there are three, huh???

i don't think there is anything more adorable than tickling a kitten!!!!

hope to see all of your regulars at uni bar and grill tuesday night, a new night there for me! and a late one, 10:45 pm show!!!!!
