Rock River.....

A view of some of the houses along the river from a boat trip we took when my in-laws were here.

Not a bad size river!

Wouldn't you love to have this house?

I don't think my middle child was too happy with the boat trip!

However, my little one was really happy!

I will have more photos next week!

My lettuce bed before it got overgrown!

My daughters love to go out the the backyard and pick fresh lettuce

We usually have salad in a big wooden bowl that I have had for a few years.

I hope you have enjoyed my fresh garden salad!!

Trying to figure out what is for dinner....

Do you think we should have Tacos?


Stuffed zucchini?
We have had it a few nights this week already!!!
I have so many zucchini growing and I am at this point trying to give them away!!!!

What do you think?

Just to let you know, I have been battling lice with my kids this summer too!!!!


No, I haven't been around...

First off, I do have to say I am sorry about not blogging lately. I have been having some issues. Female issues...... On August 3 they will be taking out my uterus through a big incision on my stomach. I have had 2 c-sections and they don't have a choice on that one.

I have been sooo incredibly tired all of the time. They have put me on iron pills and hormones and I still just want to sleep the day away.

My dad flew in June 22 and so did my in-laws. I am afraid that their trip here this time was a little boring! They just watched me sleep alot.

I did get pictures and I will post those over the next few days!

One very happy puppy!
