Me and my beloved stirring the pot.  In addition to burgo, I had fried rabbit,
fried duck, oysters, crawfish, fried deer, home-made summer sausage
and deserts a plenty.

It was a beautiful day!  We saw two BALD EAGLES flying
overhead.  Inspiring.

Here, Grandpa is stirring the pot again.

He won the half-pot drawing!  He gave the winnings
back to the organizers to help cover costs.
(very cool)

Den meeting!  Tonight we learned knife safety.  The boys then carved

Self portrait of a defiant girl.

Little Lady was not good for Mom in the car, so she didn’t get to play
on the playground.

LL refused to apologize, so she never got to play.

This picture perfectly sums up her stubbornness.

Little Man’s team, the Chargers, played the Raiders.  Some of the Raiders
parents were… interesting…

Little Man takes the handoff.

He scored his first touchdown!  (not on this play, but it was a rushing
touchdown)

Luck would have it, Mom and Little Lady were went to the bathroom
when he scored!
