My Dad turned 70 on July 30th. Sure doesn't seem like he should be that old. We are very blessed to have him in our lives. He still does a lot of farming and tending to cattle. Him and my mom have put in a large garden that they share with family and friends in our community.
In his 70 years he has seen so many changes. I have had the opportunity in the past to go back to Texas to where he was raised and go back in time with him to the days of his childhood through his memories. There were lots of hard times but lots of laughs, too.
We are a very close~knit family and for that I am so VERY Thankful....I'm glad Danny and I both live near our parents.
Well the temperatures have remained in the triple digits with no end in sight! So our niece Melanie decided to jump in!
Sloan is a lil' fish...he loves going under!
He jumps in over and over and dog paddles back.

Jaxson our great~nephew....Sloan calls him his lil' buddy!

I sure hope each and everyone of you enjoyed your weekend.....be sure to tell those in your life that you love them!
