Farm fun

Casey and Gina

Our oldest daughter, Giselle, her husband, Jon, and our new granddaughter, Trena, drove in from Montana this week for some family time.
Last night we were all together for some homemade lasagna, salad from the garden, and garlic bread.
(I cooked the lasagna an garlic toast on the gas grill...took about an hour on med/low...didn't have to heat up the house!)

And some serious horsehoe games.

Pay close attention, Jon!

We are lovin' having these guys around, and are taking advantage of every minute.


Pin It!

Oh! What a beautiful family! Don't babies and tots bring you right into the present moment! This Saturday I had my niece with me ... we smelled flowers, splashed feet, had ice cream (i-keem) ...

Enjoy all your lovely "memere" moments...

Precious family times. Wishing you many hugs, slobbery kisses, and plenty of good food to share and laugh over. :)

What a beautiful family! I totally want to play horse shoes now - it's been years. Have fun with your family.

It looks like you're having a great time with your family. And that sweet baby!!!

Your photo of the potatoes really helped me. This is the first year I've grown them and the plants are enormous, making me so intimidated about the "hilling" thing. It just goes against every nurturing bone in my body to bury those gorgeous plants. And then all that dirt...
