Fourth Faves in May

It's Friday again, so soon.  I was gone for a couple of days and am catching up here at Willow's Cottage.  Here are my Friday Fave Fives for this Fourth Friday in May. (follow the link to join!)  

1.  Thank you for all the love for my granddaughter's track meet high jump.  Although she didn't make it to regionals, we are so proud of her efforts and tenacity.

2.  We took a quick two day trip north to Cleveland.  Since we had never been there, we enjoyed visiting a park on Lake Erie.  It was a fun spot to walk and see the outline of downtown Cleveland.

The metal artwork on the fence was fun and whimsical.

3.  The reason we were in Cleveland was to pick up my brother and his co-worker and drive them to where they were picking up two buses for the bus company they work for.  I haven't seen my brother in person for three years!  Oh, it was so so so good to spend even a few hours with him!

He drives big buses.

4.  The drive to and from Cleveland sent us through so much farmland.  You know what that means.  Old barns!

5.  Talking about doctor appointments isn't always the best topic, but I am thankful for two appointments, one with the dentist and one with the dermatologist, that went well.

This is Memorial Day weekend in the United States.  Let us stop, focus, and be thankful for those who have given all for our country.  Fly our flags proudly.

my husband JUST literally as i was reading this, put our flag out (i normally have decorative seasonal flags from the front stoop but we change it to the American flag for patriotic holidays).

YAY for granddaughter persevering.

How awesome to meet your bro and wow...that IS a big vehicle...wonder what it costs to fill up??? YIKES

How fun that you got to go meet up with your brother and see a city and part of the country you've never been too. Love that pic of the two of you. That is one big bus! Congratulations to your granddaughter for making it that far and for all her hard work.

Congratulations to your granddaughter for making it so far and persevering! I love the little whimsical decorations in the fence. How awesome to see your brother again! Wow, I couldn't handle such a big bus. I'm apprehensive of even driving our RV, though I told my husband it might be good to go to a big parking lot so I can practice a bit. I'm glad your dr. appointments went well.
