BACK HOME & BACK TO WORK

It's good to be home again even though it meant work on the garden produce right away. This isn't the way this was supposed to look but I guess I should be glad I could get some pictures on at all. Jim & Aaron rode their Harleys to the reunion - I took lots of pictures but am just posting the bikers and one shot of the "older" generation. The eight of us are what is left of the siblings in my family and their spouses. Grandpa and I were fortunate enough to be included in being housed at Kelly's house, so we didn't have to be on a bunk in a cabin. We had lots of talent displayed there and lots of memories to talk about. Kenneth went with us and that was such a blessing - I had someone to help drive and he helped with grandpa's oxygen, etc. We stayed with Bill & Karen on Saturday night and went to church there. My beans were waiting to be canned and I didn't feel like I could put it off. With tomatoes we are at the point where we can have a sliced tomato each meal - yeah!

Love all your pictures - beautiful green beans, and the bikers....well they're just awesome! I'm SO glad Dad was able to come in the end and enjoy the reunion. It really was a priceless day and a half.

Wow. I had no idea Jim had a Harley...never would have pictured that.
I'm glad you were both able to make it to the reunion and enjoy that time with your family.

Actually, Jim rented the Harley he rode. He has always wanted one and will probably buy one some day, but he really did enjoy the ride down

I love the pics of the boys and the Harley's! You have been so busy, I'm impressed with your canning. We have gotten a few tomatoes and have eaten them at once!
