Just a nice day to sit out on the porch

This is a propane fire pit I had gotten for my birthday one year. We decided to try it out while we were out on the porch one night. It is nice.
Jordan discovered that caterpillars wouldn't hurt him.

He learned to be very gentle with them.

Jordan in the hospital

Over the weekend of June 11, Jordan was in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs. He was a very sick little boy. Here is a link to the pictures of him and his new bike.

Father's Day 2011

This is one of the things that got accomplished this past week. Our other pool had a hole in the ring around the top, so we upgraded a little and installed this pool this week. It is great for just cooling off and getting wet.

Jeffrey, Tina, and Jordan got me this beautiful Orchid for Father's Day. They know I love plants and flowers and I think it is beautiful. Thanks again.

We had a very enjoyable day today. It was not only Father's Day, but it was also Jeffrey, Jr.'s birthday. Most every year it is during our annual Brushton Campmeeting and we don't get to celebrate on his birthday. This year camp is late and so Friday night, my sister arrived and we went out for his birthday supper. Then we had them for dinner today for his birthday and to visit while Chris was still here. Rachel fixed a delicious pot roast dinner with carrots, mashed potatoes, cauliflower, and fruit salad. We had scratch chocolate cake with imitation whipped cream frosting. It was very good to get a call from Justin today and to talk a while with him. He then got to wish Jeffrey a happy birthday also. It was just a beautiful day full of beautiful things.
