We drove up the Florida highway to celebrate our grandson Zachary's 18th birthday. It was a perfect day for a drive. Even though the windshield became bug splattered with those nasty love bugs, we still appreciated the beautiful blue
It's always so difficult to think of the "perfect" present for anyone, but when the person is a teen, it's especially tricky. I think I've found a solution. Zachery is holding the gift his Papa and I brought him. Of course the wrapping is a blue
background with sports icons printed on it.
Note the additional gift from his cousins is also wrapped in blue
Inside is a giant chocolate bar, and hidden under the wrapper is money! Chocolate and money. Yep, Zachary thought that it was the Perfect gift!
Zachary is dressed in a blue
pants, and blue
hat.Happy Blue Monday!Blue Monday Participants

Happy Monday, Ms. Sally!
Enjoyed seeing the way you and grandson celebrated his special day. I have found that young people his age and even some of the older ones, prefer to have money. You would not believe all the ways I have come up with for that purpose.
Happy blue Monday!
excellent birthday gifts..
I've never seen a teenager who didn't like both money and chocolate!!
glad you had a lovely drive and even better time with Zachary!!
warm sandy hugs..
So glad you could spend the weekend with your family!
Hey Sally,,,how proud you must be!!!! Congrats!!!
Many blessings to you in this new week~~~Hugs Dena
what a wonderful presents he got from his family. Watching his smile in the picture shows he's happy for what he got :) Happy Blue Monday Sally
That does make for a good present. I have a Birthday cake on my post for my nephew's birthday. No I did not make it...but he turned 13 and we gave him a gift card. He loved that. I think he plans to pick out new clothes with it.
Happy Blue Monday!
Lovely blue sky.
Who wouldn't want to receive money and chocolate?

You found a lot of blues Sally. Your grandson is so gracious to let you take his photos for the blog---I realized that wasn't the only reason for the photos. My teenage kids would have a couple of things to say...LOL ;-)
Happy Birthday Zachary and thank you for wearing blue and posing for your grandma's photos!!!
Lovely blue Monday you showed us. Thank you.
That's so great!! What an awesome gift! :D And the sky is gorgeous!
Happy Blue Monday, Sally.
Grandsons are a great gift. Yours is a cutie.
I'd love chocolate and money for my birthday too. I've got some bluejay photos for Blue Monday.
Chocolate and money....who could go wrong with that? Smart hubby!
Chocolate and money seriously is the most perfect gift.
I'm eating my oatmeal and all I can think about is chocolate....Love your Blue Monday post.
Good morning Sally, your grandson is very handsome and I would like chocolate and money for my birthday anytime. Smile.
You won't believe where I am. I am sitting next to Beverly in her craft room. We are in Raleigh for an event with the Senior Olympics State Competition and Beverly lives near here. This is about 5 plus hours from where we live in the mountains. Bill is in a bowling tournament. We are having the most fun because I spent the night and now it is early in the am with our coffee. Fun, is an understatement.
Have a great day.
I have joined for the first time. I love your blue photos :)

I think you found the perfect gift :-). His smile says it all. I forgot to post last night. Better late than never - I hope. Blessings...Mary
I love the Florida sky and the beautiful blues to be seen in it. Looks like your grandson had fun, yes money and chocolate just can't be beat! Happy Blue Monday.
That would be great!
Happy Blue Monday!
What a cutie your grandson is. And great gifts!
Chocolate and money works for me too! Aren't the love bugs just awful. We've been in Florida many times during the "season" of bugs. The first time, we just couldn't believe it!
Lots of nice blues there, and money and chocolate make great gifts!
I'd like those for my b-day too!
It doesn't get any better than chocolate and money!
Yum! Chocolate is always a winner.
I didn't get to link up earlier today and now the option was no longer available. When do you close it?
Happy birthday to you Grand son Ms. Sally
Chocolate and money? I think that is the perfect gift for anyone at any age!
I know it would put a big smile on my face. :-)
Thanks for Blue Monday!
Happy Happy Birthday to your handsome grandson! You can't beat a giant Hershey bar, in my book!:)
Well, I'm going to get in line next to Zachary because I think that's the perfect present, too! LOL! Love it, Sally. Happy Birthday (belated) to Zachary. What a handsome young man.
Checking in with you because life has been very crazy. Mr. Magpie's recuperation took longer than anticipated, but he is on the mend. Thing is, my house is a wreck, and I'm behind. But I hope to be blogging again in a week or so.
Your grandboy is so handsome...and a cute idea for a gift. Those teen boys really are hard to buy for and we generally give money, too.
This week, we have 3 girls birthdays...that can get expensive when it's so many at once. Then, about 2 weeks later, a grandson is turning 1 yr older, too. WHEW...
Just wondering how you are doing. I don't get to "talk" with you very often..and I've noticed yuou are only blogging once a week.
What do you do with your time now?
I know you must really be enjoying your new house. It is so pretty...
Take care..and will come back in the morning to link...:)
