Saturday Night on the Town

Tonight me and Rachel went out with Lisa and Kyle, my sister and nephew. I could probably count on one hand, with three fingers left over, how many times we've gone out since they moved here last June. We really need to do something about that.

Late this afternoon we went to Dubois Park in Jupiter. I haven't been there in years. We only walked around for a little while because we were freezing. It was 72 and very windy by the water. It was cold to us. Just wanted to share a couple of pictures so you could enjoy also.

Here's a shot of the Jupiter lighthouse in the distance.

We then went to a little place in Hobe Sound called Harry and the Natives. They had a benefit there for Juvenile Diabetes. There was a band and a huge raffle of donated items. A mom got up to give a little speech with her seven year old daughter, Bella. What a cutie! The mom told about her daughter dealing with diabetes and what they have to do each day for Bella to be okay. This totally tugged at Rachel's heartstrings. She couldn't leave without talking to the mom and giving a donation from her own money. I was very proud of Rachel. And Rachel felt real good when Bella came running out after us to thank Rachel for her donation.

What a sweetheart Rachel is, Joyce. You've done a great job of raising her.

It sounds like a lovely day with terrific, sweet family.

But 72 is cold? Isn't that interesting how acclimated we get?

They don't do "stuff" like that around here.
I have a blog award for you. You can pick it up at my 'personal' blog.

Joy said...

Wait a minute. Did I read correctly that you said it was 72 and freezing?

{LOL - teasing you Joyce}

Going back to read the rest of the post now. :o)
