4th of July 2013

A day of our entire family!  Kim and Marc have the perfect place for play.  We had our own most impressive fireworks show.  It was fun to watch the cousins have fun together.  It looks like the theme of the day was “Hats.”    Click here if using an iPad or iPhone or for a full screen slideshow.  (find the “slideshow button in the upper right hand corner)

Harvest through the generations

It’s harvest time at “home.”  A busy time of year. 

Several years ago I found this picture of my Dad and Wayne unloading the combine.

Our Dad is on the combine and my brother, Wayne is moving wheat around on the truck.

Here are Wayne & Ruth in their present combine.  The picture was taken two days ago.

And, here are the next generations on the farm, Rod and Emmy Sue by the grain truck.

My niece, Deb, is called into service as a grain hauler

If it’s dry, they will cut into the night.

69 and counting

Dan couldn’t have ordered a more beautiful day—right down to the home made ice cream and cupcakes.  The big seven-o next year.  That’s worth a party. 

By the way, I got in this picture too.  I’m kind of hard to see, though.
