This bee was rescued from the pool yesterday. It dried off and went back to the flowers.
I gave Colton a hair cut yesterday. He hadn't had it cut since November. I guess the style was shaggy grungy looking. He couldn't stand all that long hair the heat though. Our weather (wx) here has been in the mid 90's with high humidity all this last week.
A deer we saw in the field next to the house.
Been busy doing all kinds of stuff. We got the garden about 3/4 weeded, lawn mowed and some horse work done. More about that some other post. I was going to donate blood today since I had not been able to the last few times I tried, due low iron, but decided not to because it's soo hot and I am going to drink copious amounts of beer tonight!
Also I got a bad rock chip in my windshield today on our way to Eau Claire!! Rotten luck it's just in my line of sight.. Good thing I have a hubby that can get that fixed.

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.

They sure look pretty when weeded.
We are putting a little water in the pool and when it's full we'll take a sample down to the pool people and have it tested for the chemicals we need.
Sure was a beautiful weekend here. Temps in the 80's and a light breeze.
Love WI in the summer!
The calf we had on Friday night is for sure a female and we have named her Molly. She is nursing well and soft as a kitten. She was hiding in the barn today so no new pictures of her.
OK KID UPDATE:
It's in the mid-90's there and HOT!
Everyone went to the movies yesterday and hung out at
They are ready to come home, but I don't think they will be here till late Friday or early Saturday. Grandpa's sister and brother-in-law have arrived from CA in their RV and are there visiting also. Sounds like a house full to me.

Everyday for the last week I've been saying, today is the day Lily (mama cow) is going to have the baby. I have been doing a lot of cow watching and had just decided that a watched cow is never going to give birth. So, we were cooking dinner last night, Cal doing the pork chops on the grill and me in the kitchen, when I looked out the window and saw something funny going on with Lily's tail. It was practically sticking straight out from her body. I told Cal to go check her out and he gives me the thumbs up that it is finally time! I turned off the stove, he brought the chops in and we grabbed the video recorder and raced out.
For about 15 minutes all you could see was two little white feet poking out of her. Lily was restless getting up and laying down again. She was laying down when she gave a huge heave and the baby's head and front shoulders slide out! WOW!! And Lily is looking at the baby like what in the world is going on here. The baby actually raised it's head up and mooed. That must have startled Lily because she scrambled to stand up with the baby still hanging half way out.
It was the longest minute or two for me when the baby finally came all the way out and hit the ground!! Lily spun around and started licking the baby all over. It was just amazing!!
Within just a few minutes the baby was trying to stand up. Those wobbly little legs didn't look like they could hold her up, but finally after a few tries she made it!

(this is us at the library)
OK Kid update: They are having a great time, enjoying hot sunny weather. Although there have been a few interesting things of note. Our little guy got hives yesterday and we don't really know what from, maybe the different brand of sunblock and he tipped the four wheeler over onto it's side. The princess ran the go-cart into grandma's stone garden statue and cracked it (only minimal damage to the go-cart). The big guy hit a stump when riding the go-cart and ripped out the throttle cable. Looks like grandpa will be busy fixing that today.
