Yesterday Ben, Jane and Jake went to the Ryder Cup 2012. Below they are holding a flag with signatures from Tiger Woods and Brant Snedeker. They also went with their friends George and Laura. The picture below them is of Tiger Woods signing Jake's flag. I think this was very exciting for Jake.

This is Liam. Since his two lovely Grandmothers live out of town he asked me to be his stand in Grandmother Friday for Grand-parent's day. I was delighted and honored to do it. Liam is a very sweet boy. We had lunch, went to the book store and toured many areas of the school. I kept asking him to walk slower so I could keep up with him. Once we got to his room he sat in his chair while I was standing against the wall. He immediately asked the teacher if we could get a chair for Mrs. Cheney. I am so impressed with his manors and sensitivity to others.

I am re-posting this picture to wish our Son-in-law Benny a very Happy Birthday. Husband of Jane and father to Jake we love him very much and wish they all weren't so far away. I spoke with Ben this morning and he said Jane is taking him golfing this afternoon. Have fun golfing today Ben!

A couple of weeks ago Diana, Peyton and Jack's other Grandmother and I took the Texas Grand-kid's to Mooyah's for lunch the day before school started this year. I love the phones now with the cameras because when you are not prepared with your camera you can capture the moment anyway. It is so hard for me to believe just how fast the kids have grown and how quickly time flies. By the way, Mooyah's has a really nice burger wrapped in lettuce which is good if you are trying to avoid a lot of bread.

While in Chicago Jane and Ben had a barbecue. They invited family from the Chicago area which included my brother and his family, Ben's parents and my nephew Matt and his family. They also invited several of their friends. This was nice because it has been a long time since I have seen some of them and some I have never met. It was such a pleasant evening and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.
The photo immediately below is my niece Lisa with my son-in-law Ben grilling pineapple. Lisa marinated the pineapple in Rum with some brown sugar and cinnamon. It was absolutely delicious served warm with a scoop of ice cream.
