Dustbowl Days

Looks like April is going to be super busy. Our daughter Jenn took the plunge and married Ryan last Friday night. It was a very simple wedding no frills yet very nice. We will be having a reception here at the farmhouse on April 30th. They are off on a cruise to Jamaica, the Grand Caymans and Cozumel. I praying she is careful during the scuba diving time they have planned. That part has me a little okay a lot worried.

I was able to snap a quick picture of Sloan with our daughter~in~law and our son.

Sloan sure looked handsome in his suit and he insisted on wearing his tennis shoes.

Besides the wedding Danny and I were also set up at the OKC fairgrounds for the farm show. It was a good way to do some advertising for our trailers and truckbeds. While we were there I found a really neat flagpole to bring to get it up!

Back at the farm the work on the house is coming right along. This is going to be one BIG room when it is done.
We are going to enclose one little area to move our washer and dryer to. A fireplace will go into one corner and then the rest will have places for folks to sit and visit, play a game of checkers or dominoes. Of course there will be plenty of room for quilting or hooking get togethers.

The new carport area is just about done. Just a little more trim, some paint and then it will be time for some lights. Just look how brown everything is....welcome to the dustbowl! We sure need rain.

I have a few things I have finished but I will save them for another day. We are gearing up for the Doyle Family Reunion at the end of the week to be held at Rock Creek Camp at Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas. My dad's side of the family has started meeting there once a year and we really do have a great time. We have a big catfish cookout on Saturday evening and of course there are always lots of old and new stories to tell!

Now I'm off to find my rug hook!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

Hi Ginger,
Just catching up on my dashboard reading ... Wow ... you have been busy and sounds like you will be for a while ... I LOVE that large room and how nice to have a carport! As much as it rains here, that would be perfect ... but I would settle for a doghouse off of the back door.
Have a great week.

Congrats to Jenn! I can't imagine having such a large room on our house, but I can dream. =)
