Family Reunion

Yesterday we went to Bo's 3rd annual paternal family reunion. There were lots of folks there and we enjoyed visiting with everyone and eating lots of food. Good food.

I took this picture of these two cute little boys having a hot dog in a swing.



Bo's cousin's son had a BIG cooker and did all the cooking.



Here are pictures of Bo & three important women in his life:


His sister:


His daughter:


And his mother:


Bo's dad is in the hospital so he didn't get to be there. He has had pneumonia, but hopefully he is getting better.

It was a nice day.

Not a Whole Lot Going On Around Our House

Bo & I planted some small shrubs in our backyard next to the garage today while Lilly treed a cat that jumped our fence.



I have been sick since Tuesday with a sore throat, cough, fever and runny nose. Ugh. I must have picked up something in California.

Oh, and I got my hair cut very short. I mean really really short. I can't believe I did it, but I like it pretty well, I think. It will surely be easy. There's not much there to fix.

Oh, and one more thing..... Mason got a job!! Yea! He finishes up his clinicals July 24th and will take the Surgical Tech exam the same day. He hasn't been working anywhere for a couple of months now. He decided to just do school, but since he is living on his own now, his finances were getting rather tight, with no job. (He had been very diligent to save a good bit when he was working, and that's what he's been living on). Anyway, on Friday he got a call from a surgery center here in town offering him a job. He had interviewed with them about a week ago, and they were checking out references and such. I guess everything checked out good. I would think they must be very good for them to hire an 18 year old boy. ---I'm so proud of him.

[Correction: Mason told me today he is taking his exam on the 15th, this Wednesday, not the 24th]

Oh. My. Goodness II





Yesterday we went to Lake Tahoe for the day. So beautiful, I could hardly take it in. Bo & I hiked a mile out to Eagle Lake up rocks and hills. I am pretty sore today, but must say it was so worth the walk.

Last night we went to the Bible Conference that we came out here to attend. We have gotten to hear some great sermons so far and will go back today and tonight. We heard about the great love God has for his sheep last night, by Don Fortner and were amazed yet again. Our God's love for his children is so absolutely amazing. He loves us because of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and only because of him. What a wonderful, wonderful thing! Praise the name of the Lord.

HAPPY 4th OF JULY!

Oh. My. Goodness!






Yosemite National Park is so so beautiful. Majestic, Awesome, Incredible, Georgeous.

These pictures don't do justice. Bo & I had such a great time there yesterday.
