Saturday, we headed over to my paternal uncle's for a family reunion, where we enjoyed a pig-pickin' & swimming in the pool. I didn't take many pictures, because the food was delicious, and I spent most of my time eating and visiting...but mostly eating! "smiles"
My uncle is a retired Lt. Colonel, from the Air Force, and served his time as a pilot!
His yard is beautiful! I did get the picture above, and of the daylilies below, which are just beginning to bloom!
After church on Sunday, we met friends, Jeanna and Ricky, and their family, at our farm. We shared buckets of chicken from the colonel's, while the children rode the four-wheeler and dune buggies.
The farm has been in my husband's family for over 100 years.
A little over two years ago, we began restoring the old farm house. It has been a very slow process, working on it a little as we go. God willing, this is where Kevin and I will one day retire, after the last child graduates from high school!
Looks like a Hee Haw Reunion on the front porch, huh?
Remember Grape Ape??? Wonder if he ever rode a motorcycle...
David was so excited that he found a mud hole... But that's okay, he was going home with Ms. Jeanna! LOL!
The chase is on....
Jeanna and her daughter, Haley
The girls did pretty good, after they learned to switch gears... I do hope neither are looking for a straight drive when they turn 16!
Holding on for dear life, amidst the dust storm!
The picture below was taken last March ('07), after we tore the original siding off of the house, and added a wrap around porch and sun room to the back.
We gutted the inside of the house...still have a long way to go!
The outing is over and we are on our way home!
Josh lets Coco listen to some tunes!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend ! ~Rhonda
