Summer Recap

Penny isn't retired quite yet. 

We put out our own Travel Bug for Geocaching.  It's called My Little Pony!

Duke is my ride of choice this summer.

Paul and his boys have been such a blessing to us.

We planted gardens!

We baled some hay!

My little Farmall A even gets some action!

Lovey explores the outdoors.  (I've created a monster!)

We've enjoyed almost a year of sunrises already!

We've celebrated a bountiful harvest of our own labor!

Sitting round the fire, sometimes with wine, is not unheard of here.

We enjoyed a couple fun ballgames!  Go Pirates!

Janet took Penny and I to Moraine for a ride.  Way fun!

Strange dog follows us on our ride... it's the neighbors.

Visited some gentle-giants up close.

Keith's rose garden produced beautiful flowers!

Even Keith got to ride with us... closer to fall.

Nothing says summer quite like riding horses!  Here's Keith taking his first ride of the summer on Duke!  Love this horse!  Can't wait to get him home with us!

Having arrived home this rainy afternoon, I see so much spring has sprung since last week.  Trees and yards are greener.  Flowering trees are bursting forth already!  The dogwood tree in our front yard is no exception!  It's lovely!

Fishing Acre Lake

Sunday we went to the cottage and fished at Acre Lake.  It was delightful. 

Essie caught a pickerel!

Morning Cuties

I woke up to find Asher snuggling with Gayle and then later Eli posed in his best bow-shooting stance.

Salt Springs State Park

On Saturday we hiked at Salt Springs State Park.  Oh I so loved getting out!  It's been too long since I've had the opportunity to hike.  We even found a geocache.  Score!!!

Valentines In April

Having attended a work related conference in Scranton, PA this past week, I took advantage of being so close to the Valentines.  I made a long weekend visit and it was delightful!

Gayle played piano for me.

There were appearances of Batman and Captain America-wah?

Esther showed off her artistic skill.

Gayle showed me her extensive rock collection.  It is quite impressive.  We found this giant rock in the trunk of my car.  She loves it!!!

Barn Progress

Front sliding door is on!

Stall walls are beginning to take shape!

One wall done.  One wall framed! 

Front door is closed.  I'm so excited!  It's beautiful!

Willy? Is that you?

Yesterday we had the April Birthday dinner party with the family.  Paul scored all sorts of cool Duck Dynasty attire.  So what do you think??? Is Willy his Doppelganger?
