Audra, Hayden and Kate

We picked Sarah up this past weekend and we drove into Branson for dinner. We decided on the Hard Luck Diner with singing waitresses. It was really fun. Hayden even sang along with Brooke as she sang "All I want to do" by SugarLand. It happens to be written by a friend of mine from High School- Bobby Pinson. We had a great time and drove for a little over 9 hours for 2 days in a row. Not too bad.

We have been busy, but have had some time to relax and enjoy our summer too. We just got Sarah and Rachel back after both being gone for a week. Kate has already gone to camp with the youth group. We also did some dog sitting for a friend that went to India. It has been fun and we look forward to our "small town" Forth of July celebration this weekend.

Our Garden and the Summer Reading Program

Summer reading with "Henny Penny"

Tomatoes- YUM!

Brussel Sprouts

Well, our garden is off to a good start. Several things are coming up nicely. However, several things are not coming up at all. We planted lots of great stuff and I've taken pictures of everything in the backyard. So, that leaves out the corn and the strawberries. Those are in the front so they get more sun.
Also, we've been going to the Summer Reading Program. They had a puppet show of "Henny Penny", had a storyteller today and have other great plans for the summer. They are even doing a history walk around the square in Canyon. I think that will be great.

God's Canvas

Last week, after a quick thunderstorm passed through, my neighbor came over and told me to come outside to look at the sky. This is what we saw. We made the kids come see too. It was so different. I've never seen clouds like that before.
