We have gotten quite a bit of rain these last few days and we really needed it. Our area had been in a severe drought and now we are only moderately dry.
Our potato patch, with ninety hills, is really looking good. We planted Yukon gold and a variety of russets. The Yukon gold were a lot slower to come up than the russets, so they are the smaller plants.
Meet Pinky. We give all the animals funny names and this batch of pigs are named Pinky and the Brain.
Lily and new baby Molly.
Molly is a beauty.
And that one frog Cal found the other day has apparently called all his frog friends in, because last night we had an amazingly noisy frog symphony going! There must have been dozens of them!!
Yesterday I went clothes shopping with Kris. It was a lot of fun. I don't know why her sisters hate to shop with her. It was completely painless, especially since she was the one shelling out the cash. Then we had a fantastic lunch at Olive Garden.
OK KID UPDATE:
Yesterday they all went fishing and caught some trout in the huge pond that is on Grandpa's land. Grandpa has a secret recipe for grilling fish and they all loved it.
Grandpa, his brother-in-law and the kids left OK this am heading back this way. Not sure if they are going to drive straight through or spend the night somewhere. We can't wait to see them!!
The local fair starts today and runs through Sunday. Cal and Colton have to work the FFA concession stand on Sat and Sun, so we will be spending some time there.
