We went to some friends house for a BBQ last night.
We had hot dogs, brats, pasta salad, chips and dip, watermelon and smores.
The kids had so much fun.
Don has this crazy little truck that he let Chyann drive all over his property.
It is a stick and the steering wheel is on the left hand side, but no problem for her.
Must be all her experience driving the go-cart that enabled her to pick up what to do so fast.

Caden and his buddy were fishing and catching frogs.

He got tangled up occasionally.

How cool is that, to be able to go out in a paddle boat and fish.

Jack the dog broke out of his pen to come play fetch with the girls.

Jack loves to fetch sticks, but the boys were irritated because he kept the water too stirred up for catching fish.

Nothing like getting soaking wet
when Jack shakes all over you.

Marshmallow eating..

A little watermelon..

They kept us stocked up on wood for the fire.

Chyann drove the truck to the wood pile and the rest of the kids
loaded her up.

As you can see the boys were being brave trying to sit on the side.

But Chyann hollered at them and they sat down again.

Caden didn't catch any fish, but got a bucket of frogs that he released and Chyann
thinks she is ready for a drivers license.
Colton was at a friends house and missed all this fun.

That Chyann is a pistol! No fear.
It looks like you all had a blast.
I wonder if Colton is bummed now?

The kids look like they had a blast. I love Chyann driving - that is too funny. She probably is capable of driving a car on the real roads, it seems like all country kids get to drive before they are of age. Do you guys eat frog legs? just wondering.

Eat frog legs? Are you kidding?? I know some folks do, but not me. The kids were strictly on a catch and release frog program!!

As for pictures of me - That's a rare thing.. I'm the one with the camera in my hand.. And when I get one taken, it's usually one with my mouth hanging open or a strange twisted expression. IF there is ever a decent one of me I'll post it.
