Richie fixed up the L A John Deere tractor that you see in the picture below, and Rich made the trailer that I am riding in! We take it down to the neighbors and around the farm for fun. It will be very useful for hauling chips and other things!
I love these people. They do so much to help us out around here...this day they came to help us move a costco tent to another spot on the farm. We took them back home in my new (old) little Tracer Wagon. They fit like sardines in a can!
On the 3rd we went to the Bowes' to enjoy fireworks, fun, and lots of fantastic food!
The boys enjoyed setting their tanks on fire to make the ordinary firework show a little more dramatic.
The audience waiting for the fireworks to begin!
The garden is doing amazing this year! The weather has been just perfect for it!
On the 4th, we had a very good time visiting with all of the aunts and uncles who made it down for a BBQ.
The master BBQ'er and food preparer hard at work
Lucy, keeping her eyes peeled for accidentally dropped scraps and un-attended food, all while looking cute, innocent, and calm :-)
Such a handsome boy!
Richie's been working so hard on the greenhouse! He is borrowing a friend's excavator to do several projects around the place. He finished all of the dirt work around the greenhouse last night. It looks so good, doesn't it???!
Richie took me up on the hill last night to see another neat view of the farm.
Rosie is such a good cow!
Did I hear you say "lamb chops!"
Getting lots of soap ready for the Blueberry Festival in Mossyrock that is coming up on the first weekend in August.
Yesterday my sweet sister Valerie and Mommy helped me make around 100 photo cards to sell. Woo hoo for lots of progress!!!
Richie, with his favorite stainless steel cup :-)
Hank, with a delicious looking bone!
