A series of heavy storms washed through  our area.  It actually looked
worse on radar than it actually was.

Night falls on the home ranch.

I love this time of year.  The grass is green, the pond if filled, and no

After hamburgers, hot dogs, and potato salad, I grilled some pineapples.

They were…. okay…. the pineapple was a little tough.


I tried cooking a peach cobbler on my dutch oven.

It didn’t go so well.  The cobbler ended up too goey. 
(eveything was cooked but it was all too soupy)

It was so windy, I had to improvise a wind shield.

Little Lady had her first soccer game!  She did great, she was all over the
field, but the game ended in a tie.

It was soooooooooooooooooooo  cold and windy.


While getting grass seed, I heard a chirping sound.

Sure enough Tractor Supply Co. sells baby chicks
and ducks in the back of the store!

Birthday Party for Little Man at Incredible Pizza!

Little Man (and Little Lady) was in love with our server.
(seen here)


Since the boys arrived at different times, it was a little difficult keeping
all of them busy while the last boys ate dinner.

Boys just feed off of each other’s energy.  And in the process, they
suck the life out of the adults!


Little Lady rocked the bumper cars with her new friend.


Little Man earned a huge roll of tickets.

It was parents vs kids at the Cub Scout meeting.  Here Little Man is in motion,
getting ready to catch a pass.


Little Lady helped Mom go shopping.  She did all of the
checkout herself.


Someone at work gave me a 5 inch binder.

Little Man filled it up with his cards!  (although he cannot close it)

The southside is not all big pick-up trucks with metal balls hanging from
from the trailer hitch….

This person was rockin’ the 70’s van with the wooden table and,
of course, shag carpet.

Note the word “Fantasy” on the side.

Little Man got this cool Eagles jersey from Uncle D.

The jersey has been plastered to him ever since.
(he loves it)

My beloved turned 29 years old!

She spent the the day with Little Lady who was
getting over a Sunday night fever.

Later LL felt better.  She and Little Man read to the
dogs that night at the library.

Our blossoming weeping cherry tree is a wonderful sign of spring.

It was a beautiful day!

 I celebrated the day by picking 20 gallons of dandelions.  Later I made
my grilled potato salad and salmon.
