My Angel............My Hardhead

Bo is sleeping now and at times looks like an angel, not really in this picture but as he was getting ready for this nap he said a few words I thought were cute.

"Hardhead is nice"
"Pop is a hardhead" "Pop" would be the word they use for Grampa but he didn't specify which one.
"Hardhead don't always work so good" He means that being hardheaded isn't always good.

In the heat of the day

My sister-in-law, Mary was in action at the parade. I was walking to our vehicle when I heard sirens and then noticed a lady laying on the ground.

Dressed in the times at the parade

MOPs on parade!

< Some of our MOPs group waiting for the parade to start.

^We made it to the end!! Sweaty, bubble blower broke but we are empty of our advertzing cards!!

Dinner was so sad

This was not a successful dinner. It looks like a pile of mush and is what it has turned out to be, my husband was even trying to sculpt it into something. It was an experiment of egg noodles, grilled diced chicken, peas and alfredo sauce. I'd say the noodles turned out to be the disaster being my husband asked me if there was mashed potatoes in it.

All alone......but not complaining

Look at these two silly boys. Daddy is curled up on the couch trying to get a nap and I was reading a MOPs book briefly.

These are the sheers i put up in each of their rooms today.
The boys were home earlier but are now at the farm with daddy. I took a little nap and then I was bored and lazy with no ambition but then I found something to do. I put up window sheers that I ordered from Ltd. Commodities in the boys' rooms. I just got back from walking to the mailbox to get the mail and am considering baking some chocolate chip cookies from Schwan's. I am too lazy to mix up a batch.

Happy 3rd Birthday Bo August 26

The cake

Bo listening to us sing. We must not be good by the expression on his face.

There is a bit of dinner left
aroudn his face to go with the cake.

In the dryer?

Daddy was playing with Bo and so then Tristen thought he would enjoy it too.

When my brother and I were younger, we convinced my step sister to get into the dryer we had at home and once we shut the door, we started turning knobs outside and it scared her. It was funny at the us.


First day of school! He had a great time and wants to go back
tomorrow but can't yet.

My husband mowing hay. Both boys were falling asleep so I came to get the youngest to take back home with me.

The milkers are sucking up wash water to run thru the

milk line and wash that too.

This is the inside of

our bulk tank.

(Holds the milk, for those of you who don't know)

I've been inside to clean the residue off the paddle.

This would be our young stock of heifers, with the yellow ear tags and the steers which we need to get rid of.
My husband has our oldest with him now mowing hay just across the road from the farm.

I offered to help my husband finish chores if he would come home this morning so we could make it to church, and this is what I would be looking forward to once the agreement was made.

The milkers have to be rinsed off of cow poop and buckets have to be rinsed from feeding milk to the calves.
