The week started out on Father's Day with this banquet at daughter Kari's house. We did start out on their lovely patio, but it began to rain just before we were going to eat so we ran into the house.

The picture below is of our son Lance, his wonderful wife Tya, and their oldest daughter, Jaden. The littlest one, Madison, was off playing with Kari's daughter, Anna. Aren't they a beautiful looking family?
And later in the afternoon the sirens blared and the clouds rolled, and the rain came down in buckets. Just south of here received almost five inches in about an hour. There were numerous funnel clouds sighted in the area, but we received no damage, just rain.

On Wednesday I had lunch with two of my favorite people in the world, my dear friends Charlie and Audrey. I think they called each other to pick out the shirt color for the day! I had on white.
Last night it was off to the ballfield to watch grandson Nicolas play ball. Doesn't he have the most beautiful red hair you have ever seen? He belongs to son Chuck and his lovely wife, Thea.
Look at that footwork as the pitch was heading right towards him!
He took a pretty hefty swing at this one! What fun to watch the next generation of kids playing sports. I certainly sat on enough bleachers watching our kids. Soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, football, wrestling, diving.............

Isn't being with family great, even when you may all get blown away? Glad everyone survived. I remember the days of watching my kids and now am getting to watch the grandkids as well.

Oh I remember those days too. You are just so blessed to have such a wonderful family and so close to you. That is my dream too, but probably not going to happen. Already to spread out!
