This Week

Found this in our yard....it would seem Fall is knocking on the door...but it's way too early for that!

bluebird pictures from a friend's house



These were from last weekend....we watched the twins while Matt and Sarah took the big kids to the school's open house...Ben must have been off to my side the whole time...didn't get a picture of him!




strange berries on an unidentified vine from our garden fence...pink and purple berries?  No idea the name of it....and see that brown thing draped across the top of the picture like garland?  Such awful sharp little thorny things!  Terrible!  
Big Happy Birthday to our beautiful granddaughter on Thursday!  Four years old! She is such a sweet girl! Hope she is always as sweet and happy as she is now!

Yesterday

I had Tyler a couple days this week...we had the best time! We did several activities and one was dominoes..he would set them up and then have them all fall in a chain reaction  It was fun!

That Tree and some pretty clouds yesterday evening. We sure have been having some nice weather lately!

Tuesday Things

On my beetle hunt yesterday morning I took this picture of a bee sleeping....they sometimes get into the flowers and appear to be sleeping...don't know if that is actually the case..

Did quite a bit of work at the cabin yesterday and brought this picture back to town. It's the sister picture to the one that was hung on the wall just  a bit lower and got lifted off it's nail. I always liked studying on these pictures.
Nearly time for school to start here...Summer has gone so fast.  I can hear the bobcat up the street spreading out the mulch on the playground. Next week we'll be hearing kids playing on that playground!

Mostly From Today

All are from today except this picture...watching you tube science videos!  He was really into this! ha!  See the note pad and ink pen?  He wanted to take notes!

I saw the turkeys this morning over by That Tree.....several little ones too..


We didn't plant any sunflowers this year, but did have a few volunteer in the garden...

Capitol Visit

We sure had a good time visiting the capitol! too bad it was sunny for some of the pictures! ha!






Looking down at the trains....I neglected to get a picture of the river...

I remember these fountains when I was a child.

I remember this too...somewhere there is a picture of me with my brothers and some friends when we were kids standing by this bell.

Good man, gone too soon.

He had a lot of fun feeding coal into this to keep the number up.

On the front steps!



Sure had a good time, and plan to go back again!
