Here are some of those wonderful spider webs again.
One of God's miracles.  How do those little spiders create such beautiful and intricate webs, attached by a  fine thread to a leaf here and a stalk of grass there.  Awesome.
Last night, after a day of working on the pergola, we took son Lance and his two daughters out to 7 mile creek, which happens to be 12 miles from our place.
Two cuties, don't you think?   And wonder of wonders, they didn't accidentally fall into the water!
I only saw the bug in the middle when I shot this flower.  When I looked at it later, I saw the lighter colored spidery looking thing that blends into the petals.
Jaden gave a gymnastics demonstration.
I sure can't bend like that, can you?
This is Miss Madison, otherwise known as Miss Pyro.  She loves fire.
We ended the evening with a campfire, and when we got back home, Madison asked if we could make a fire in the back yard!
This morning was sunny and warm, with a bright blue sky,  perfect weather for finishing the pergola.  Here are Ernie and Lance putting in the final bolt.
I cleaned up, swept, moved furniture, hung plants, and created my little outdoor room.
This evening I spent a few minutes sitting out under the twinkling lights, thinking about that horrible day, ten years ago.  No, we will never forget.

Hi Marge,
What wonderful pictures and a wonderful day! Your grands are cuties...and no...I could NEVER bend like your gd did! Wow! The patio is soooo pretty!

I have two children in the Army, so I am sad with all the stuff our troops are still going through.

Hope you have a good week coming up!
