Annual Lake Weekend

Before we headed out with the Ohlde family for our 2nd annual weekend at the lake, we picked sweet corn from our garden! Both of my boys love corn!! Here they are on our back patio eating supper!

This is the awesome cabin we got to stay in!!

Said this before but I will say it again...my brother-in-law is special!

Grandkids actually all sitting still!!!

Dylan loved the boating and helping Daddy drive!

We turned on the radio and Dylan started dancing...it was soo funny...here was one of his moves!!! :-)

Here is Oronde trying to save my sunglasses that went overboard but no luck...they were gone!

Here is a picture of Dylan and I....just to prove that I was actually along!!! :=)

Fun weekend but glad to be home and in the A.C.!!! Wow, it was hot out there!!

4 years old!!!!!!

4 years ago today, I was holding this little guy in the hospital and our dreams came true to become parents!!!!

Daddy holding his son!!!

Couldn't find a 1st birthday picture for some reason....I took a ton, but here is Dylan on his second birthday!

Here he is at 3 years old!!!

And now the big 4!!!

What a great little boy you are becoming Dylan!! Mommy and Daddy don't know what they would do without you(o.k. maybe we would actually get to sleep past 6:30 a.m.)!! Everyone thinks your going to be a big boy since you weight 52 pounds!!! Love you Dylan!!!

Happy 4th of July!

It is the 4th of July, right?!?!? Dylan and I have been helping with harvest and staying up late(real late) and Dylan still likes to get up between 6:00 & 6:45, so we have been getting very little sleep and we're tired....and groughy!!! Picture of harvest to come soon........
But, in the mean time Dylan and his cousins had a quick little photo session the other night...I was helping with harvest and making food for 7 BIG hungry guys so I didn't get to see these cuties this weekend....

Dylan is counting down the days until he is 4!!! Not much longer!!

What a great picture!

Great Job Logan!!!!

Last weekend

Last weekend Dylan was in the wedding of some friends of ours! He was one of the ringbears!
Here is all the guys together before the wedding! Dylan did so good looking at the camera and smiling!!

After the wedding the wedding party rode off on this.....And they even let Dylan go!! They went and took some pictures in our big town 2 miles away and were gone for about 1.5 hours!! They said Dylan was good....even funny......:-)

I liked the back of it!

Dylan couldn't wait for the dance and the first song he grabbed the 5 year old flower girl!!!

He danced and danced and danced.......for about 2.5 hours and then crashed!!! What a fun night!! Glad we could help you celebrate Schulyer and Staci!!! :-)

F.U.N. Day!!!

Last night we had 2 little vistors!!! Dylan's cousins Kennedy and Gentry spent the night!!! I actually got them to stop playing for a minute and line-up for a picture!

After all that playing they got in the tub!!!

This morning the girls requested pancakes for breakfast and to eat at the Buzz and Woody table they got Dylan for his birthday last year!!! :-)

This morning we went down and met Grandma Walleta and her kids at the BRAND NEW park in town!!! And wow, was it awesome!!!!!!! Dylan had many favorite things about the park but he said he really liked the tire swing!!!

My youngest brother, Jason turns 27 today!!! Here he is with Dylan at his wedding 3 years ago!!!

I wasn't super happy when he was born, as I was really wanting a sister since I already had a brother. But, I knew if I waited long enough, he would come in handy!!! And that day has come............. :-)Here he is helping put on trim on in the basement.

He re-did all of his house a couple months ago, so he was in the mode of doing trim so he brought his tools up and helped us!!

So I promised pictures of my basement........here's just a little sneak peak.... I think it turned out great.

Happy Birthday Jason!!! And thanks for all you help in our basement!!!

We had lot of fun cookie cutters...his favorite was the sheep and the carrot!

He didn't eat a very good lunch after we got done...don't know why?!?!!?

And he even helped decorate them!!!

Thanks Dylan for all your help!!! :-)

I always love to have some projects to work on. Right now I have started my yearly scrapbooking gift for the senior football boys. I have 4 scrapbooks to get done before graduation!!!

My other project is working on a new cookbook for our church. It's been since 1978 since we've had a cookbook done and it's all out of print! It's been quite the project typing all the recipes in on-line but have I a great committee helping me with it!!!

Dylan's main project lately is keeping these darn calves in!!! I think they get out just so Dylan can chase them right back in!!!

I also have been working on finishing up painting my basement and also working on my back patio outside!!! Not quite done with either yet, so pictures of those will have to wait a little while!!!

Field Trip

Today Dylan got to go with Grandma and her kids on a field trip to the hospital for their Teddy Bear Clinic. All the kids have to bring a teddy bear or some sort of doll or stuffed animal with them.
Here is Dylan getting checked out first......yep, they heard a heart beat!! :-)

Next it was George's turn! George got hurt and broke his arm, so he got a cast!!! We can't take the cast off until "church day", Dylan said!!! :-)

Mommy wasn't able to go along today, as I had an appt. but he had a wonderful time! Thanks to Grandma and all her helpers for taking Dylan!!! :-)

Such a wonderful helper!!!! And he had all this done by 11:00 this morning!!! :-)
