Busy Summer Days!

It has been way too long since I have updated.  So many things going on...where to begin!
 We took Sloan for a mini vacation to Silver Dollar City in Branson, Mo.  He told us best weekend of his entire life!  That boy is a character :) 
Sloan and Papa mining for gold (lots of interesting rocks)

He talked me into riding a small rollercoaster with him and a pirate ship and yes we both got soaked!
He like to froze eating dip n' dots!

Miss Eva Mae is quite a darling.  She loves books and is jabbering non~stop.  She has learned to say MoMo.....got to love that!

Sloan was in a wedding as a ring bearer for his cousin.  He loved dressing up and decided he was one cool dude!

Father's day we spent at Mom and Dad's with a picnic and working.  Dad plowed up the potatoes and we did the gathering.

It was HOT but we all worked together and got it done.  The yard got mowed, a barn was cleaned out ready for more hay, and lots of kidding and visiting.
Sloan and Eva having a great time at a nearby waterpark.
Well I've been packing and pricing lots of rug hooking, oxford punch, needlepunch, wool applique', and patterns for Silver Dollar City.  It is all starting to come together for the adventure Pati Jane and I will be having soon.
Dad is suppose to start chemo and radiation soon.  He went in for a simple port to be put in for chemo and his lung collapsed.  He was on the mend and it collapsed again.  He spent about a week in the hospital and Mom would not leave except to run home and grab a few things.    By the end of the week he was setting on the edge of the bed with his jeans, cowboy hat, and boots on ready to go!
Did he take it easy after he got home!  Well no out cutting and baling hay the day after he got home.  Those two can run circles around me :)
Well I'm hoping to catch up on what all of you have been up to within the next few days!  Hope you all are taking time to enjoy a little summer fun :)
Happy Trails....Ginger

Well you run circles around me. :)
I can't believe how much your grands have grown. My goodness.
I was just thinking of your Dad this morning. Thanks for the update. I will keep him and your Mom in my prayers.

Wowsers....I would say you've been busy and then some!! I have been MIA in blogland for a while, but am trying to pull myself back outta the great abyss....I miss it so. Sorry to hear of your father's health issues. That C thing is a wretched beast. Tell him to put his fighting bibs on and kick it in the butt!! Can't believe you all are harvesting potatoes already....Really? 'Round these parts, folks are lucky to even have them planted. We have had such a late, late, spring - it snowed less than a month ago...and now we are getting deluged with rain. Go figure - last year drought, this year, rain.... Good to hear from you....Happy Wednesday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
