Alena gives grandma a hug. She's seven years old today.
Alena shows off her red shirt.
Calton didn't want to be left out of the picture taking. Besides he's Grandma's boy these days.

Gues where Rob's Economic stimulus check went! At least we'll expect him to add great pictures to our blog.
Bob tries out one of the new lounge chairs we got for Christmas.
We celebrated Fathers' Day and five June birthdays together with a backyard cookout, three cakes, and by trying out Bob's new Wii games. All four of the kids who live close to us and their families were here. Mary Jo and Brandon both wished Boyd happy Fathers' Day over the phone.

It ended up being a fun afternoon. It's just too bad that they don't have any of their little ponds filled. It would have made it perfect.
This is the clematis Janice and Jason game me for Mother's Day two years ago. It has huge blossoms.
In the middle of this picture with a rock beside it is the pumpkin I planted for Brandon so that he'll have a pumpkin plant when he comes. It's in the middle of my flower garden.
Here I am standing beside the side gate. Click on the picture to enlarge it so you can see how pretty the flowers are and the roses are starting to bloom.

This is walking around the house to our backyard. Yes the fence is flat on the ground.
This is the tree (big tree) that lost the brances on to the fence.
Our whole backyard.
Looking through the tree branches to the little tree that we noticed first.
This is the mail box....the wind hit the first tree sending it into the second tree all of which landed on the mailbox. Luckily Rich and Brandon were under the carport in the driveway you can see.
More of the trees on the mailbox.
The guys on base cleaning up our yard.
This is the result. The yellow spot is were the tree used to stand. The other tree is half gone. I didn't want to go outside and take anymore pictures. I might later.

Calton didn't want his hair cut but it was getting so long, it looked like little horns sticking up all over on his head. (He won't let me comb it either. When I hold him down and comb it, he immediately messes it up again.) Since he refused to cooperate while I cut his hair, I cut it really short. This video shows how much he loves his new hairdo. He thought his hair was sad because it wouldn't ever grow back.
I have a video I've been trying to post, but I can't get it to work. I'll try again tomorrow. Maybe I'll email it to Mom and see if she can get it to work. It's kinda funny.
