These last few days have flown by in a flurry of activity.  Hope it was a wonderful time celebrating the dads in your life yesterday.  Amber and Eddie came over for Kevin's celebration enjoying burgers and some pool time.  It wasn't as relaxed a day as originally planned, as our pool pump went out Friday evening and on Saturday Kevin and Cameron drove out to get a new pump and began the process of installation.  He had some final tweaking of the equipment that needed to be done before their arrival and with the heat this was not the relax and enjoy day originally planned.  Getting him to just let it go wasn't going to happen as he was on a mission to finish the task. It's part of the quality that makes Kevin the great dad he is!!

Cam had to have this T shirt for dad

Perfect day for time in the pool

Our little birds are now grown and have flown off.  These last few shots show their growth and the fact that the nest was getting pretty crowded.  Didn't actually witness any leave, but all seem to have made it out safely - no evidence to the contrary.

Oh it's you again!

It's getting crowded in here

Down to 2

The empty nest

A few pictures of our now tall sunflowers.  Note the bird netting. I have it covering my whole garden as the birds kept uprooting my seedlings.  So this garden is well fenced and covered in an effort to have us enjoy the fruits of our labor.


  1. Sorry I have not visited you in a while but not had time to check my own blog for a while. Well I love that dad T shirt. I thinks my kids will love to give something like that to their dad. Lol I am the strict one :P
    Also read your earlier post and my heart goes out to the little Chinese girl who need surgery. I will pray to the god I bel. for her.

  2. Paps,
    Thanks for your sweet thoughts about Theresa. She's quite a little fighter and has such a zest for life.
    I'm the strict one too and so I had to conquer this was a very appropriate T-shirt : )

    1. Oops, I mean concur, not conquer.

  3. lol! In my case, I was the strict one AND the one that let Andrew get away with things his father wouldn't!
