We have yummy rhubarb in our garden every spring and summer.
I made some strawberry rhubarb cobbler. Plenty for us and some to give away. Our brother in law, Sam, loves this dessert, so he was one of the lucky recipients. ;) Heading into the oven….. Yum!
Here we are Sunday afternoon, June 15th, Father’s Day. I am so seriously behind in blogging, I considered skipping ahead, but I really don’t want to leave anything out, so I am just plugging along when I can. Lindsey and I had opposite matching skirts. Is that what you call it? I was going to say “matching”, but they really aren’t matching. Anyway, you get the idea. ;) We had shower leftovers! It really was a friendly conversation, even though Sam B. looks like he’s about ready to take out Dad. :) Darrell brought his new ducks over and Lyvia was feeding them to try and get them close to her so she could hold them. She did eventually catch one and hold it. Me and My Daddy on Father’s Day. Ethan took this picture and I thought it came out so nice. (Had to make sure I gave credit where credit was due.)We had a very nice and relaxing Father’s Day visiting out in the yard. I’m so thankful for the Fathers in our lives. My Dad, Sam’s Dad, and Sam are all wonderful Godly examples of what it truly means to be a father. They set an example for us all to follow and give of themselves in so many ways. We are a blessed family.
Little Miss Bailey Grace made her grand appearance into the world on Monday, August 18th!
She is just precious! And we hear she is a very quiet, calm baby. We can’t wait to meet her! It’s hard to be so many miles away.
But for now I just request pictures and stare at them. :)Congratulations, Brian and Brooke on your precious daughter!!
And, by the way, we love the name you chose. ;)
What a fun day we had celebrating Sam and Lindsey’s new baby! The kids and I headed over in the morning to help set up. Here we are hanging the little “lanterns”.Brooke did all the centerpieces. She is so talented! So simple, yet so pretty. The ferns were right out of Mom’s yard.We did drinks a little different this time. As you can see, Weston was excited about it.And he was just dying to dig into an ice cold juice box. :) I, on the other hand, couldn’t wait to try a Starbucks!Or an Izze!The food table. We had Lindsey’s shower in the same location as my bridal shower which was 15 years ago. Even the food table was set up the same.Goat milk soap favors! Baby powder scented!I loved all the old pics.All the food looked so so good!Lindsey was busy greeting all those arriving.Shelly, Alisa and Bruna were checking out the pictures.Mom shared from scripture before we got started.Lunch time!Gift time!Here Lindsey was opening her gift from my girls.Amanda wrapped up a prank gift. It was called a crib dribbler. It was so funny! They didn’t know it was a prank at first and there was no card so my Mom was asking whose gift it was.Pam, Lindsey’s mother in law, helped her open one of the big gifts.This was a cool wall hanging from Maria.Lyvie is showing her the familiar pages in the book Goodnight Maryland. That was from Brooke and I.Weston and Emma found something fun to do with the wrap boxes.We had to throw in a little librarian touch for Lindsey, so we pulled a bookcase over to put all the books she received in.Sam and Lindsey with Sam’s Mom, Pam, and his sister, Susanna.
Sam is checking out all the books he will be reading to his baby!What is this?! It was in the grass when we were cleaning up from the shower. It was a great day and we were so thankful the weather held out for us and we enjoyed being outside!
On Friday, June 13th, we headed over to Mom and Dad’s to set up for Lindsey’s baby shower. It was a rainy day. We really wanted to have the shower outside for Lindsey, but the weather was questionable. But we went for it! Here we are setting up the tent. Weston was laying out the bungees for us. Lift her up! The picture might be a little crooked because I was holding up this end of the heavy metal frame while I took the picture. Once we got these poles in, I said to my Dad, “Aren’t we supposed to put the tarp on first, then raise it up?!” Oh Boy. So, back down she went to put the tarp on. And she’s up! Table delivery Once we got all the tables set up, I said to Mom, “Guess what?!” She said, “What?” I said, “We are having the shower outside no matter what now, because I’m not carrying all these tables back inside til after the shower!!” :)
