I took the kids to my fav fall spot to get a picture of all four of them. Bribbed with ice cream:) Wasn't as bad as it could have been....

10 years!

Yep...Its been TEN big fat years of being out of the fabulous Washington High School. This year our class reunion fell on homecoming weekend, so we did a float in celebration of the event! We included our kids, and they enjoyed throwing candy to their friends:) A special thanks to Jennifer for emailing the pics to me! Most of the crew....
Clay and I...

Madison & RyLee with my classmate, Jennifer's little boy.




Madison loaded with candy:) What little girl wouldn't be smiling?




Another Bobcat!

Friday, October 3, 2008

This past Monday, Nathan's dad trapped a bobcat. It was with the help of our DNR. His free-roaming chickens were disappearing at a rapid rate. The only thing left would be a pile of feathers:( One day his dad was certain he saw a bobcat, so he called the DNR and they brought out a trap. Within 4-5 hours with a decoy rooster....this is what they had! Anyway, its kinda odd, if you remember this past May I also took pictures of a bobcat. FYI:No bobcats or chickens were harmed in this capture:) Nathan, the kids, and Larry Sr. a safe distance from the trap.










Someone wasn't very happy......

Tess and I hung out by the pond waiting for everyone. She turned 9 months this weekend....and I think my pics turned out pretty well for the occasion!:)
