Blog Update

A random smattering of photos from the past 8 weeks or so - accompanied by sundry matter-of-fact captions.  But, yes we're still alive and kicking - and looking forward to some more posts this fall!

June 19, 2016 - Hiking with friends (-and our new neighbors-) after church on Sunday.

June 24, 2016 - I joined Noah's concrete crew for a few days as we poured piers.

I was smiling...

...until I realized that the mud was over my boots.

The easy way to transport concrete.

June 25, 2016 - Celebrating Mrs. Jones' birthday with two treats: ballroom dancing - and ice cream.

July 7, 2016 - We mourned the death of my Mom's cousin, Sarah Bracy.

And we returned to the cemetery where we'd buried my grandpa a little over four months ago.

July 16, 2016 - On the bright side, we got to celebrate the first birthday of this little man...

And this little handful is such a blast to watch as she grows and learns.

Shopping at Stuff-Mart---I mean Ikea.

Feeling a little woozy?
Then she got the window scraper, and some rolls of toilet paper.
Then a rachet set and pliers and surround sound amplifiers.

July 30, 2016 - At the Muny for the opening night production of "Fiddler on the Roof."

August 2, 2016 - Voting in our state's primaries.

I did.

August 5, 2016 - A group shot after watching Jason Bourne.

Found this little guy (next to a dime) on our deck door.

August 12, 2016 - Noah and I hit the road for the 2016 Officer's Ball and for a weekend spent visitng with friends.

And odd things tend to happen when you stay up just way too late- and there's a camera to capture it.
But I'd say it was worth the RISK.

A beautiful sunset accompanied us on the way back home.

The stuff mart comment had me laughing... that was the first Veggie Tales I saw... Now I won't be able to look at IKEA the same :-P

Was Lydia the one that found the little frog? ;-)

And your cousins are getting so adorable!
