May day and Prom

Aah, it's May Day.

No bonfires were lit to mark the coming summer because it's so damn windy here today!

The apple blossom picture below was taken April 27th of last year. The apple trees were in full bloom for Mothers day. This year the apple trees barely have buds on them so maybe they will be blooming by the Graduation.

Yesterday was Prom.

Colton and his girlie friend went.

I didn't realize that my camera lens has a dried water spot on it until I downloaded the pictures I took of them. How tacky, a nice water spot right on Colton's chest. It had been raining all day long, but it quit and the sun came out just in time for pictures.

The school district supports an after prom all night party lock in.

Every year it's some place new. This year it was at Action City in Eau Claire.

They have laser tag, bumper cars, rock walls to climb, video games, etc.. and all you can eat free pizza and soda. Not to mention lots of prizes to win.

When Colton came at 7am this morning he said they'd had a great time! He even won some good stuff. I didn't have time to hear what he'd won as the dogs were barking like maniacs in the backyard!

It was Cowboy, who has somehow managed to get out of the back pasture for the second day in a row!

He must be laying down and rolling under the fence, because it is not down or stretched anywhere. I'm knocking on wood that none of the other horses decide the grass is greener in the backyard or the neighbors land to the East and make their way out as well. Especially on a day when no one is home.

Anyway, by the time I got back into the house Colton was already in bed.

Chyann has started swimming on Friday's as part of her physical therapy regime and she enjoyed it, but it took so much out of her she was literally wiped out that night and all of yesterday.

I am amazed at how long it is taking her to get her strength back. The range of motion in her knee is coming slow as well, but she is gaining there - thankfully.
