Thursdays Means Fun At Mema's House!!

For 5 years now since Hunter was 3 months old Thursdays has meant Mema's day with some little boys!  These little guys keep me on my toes and busy thinking up things to do to keep them entertained.  They are such a blessing to me!  Come fall things will change some because Hunter will start to kindergarten and be going to school all day, so each Thursday is really special now knowing one little guy is growing up and moving on.  There are so many memories of these last years watching him grow from sweet little baby boy to the little man who now makes me stretch myself to keep up with his bright inquisitive mind!  Love these little boys and looking forward to many more years of watching them grow!!

Hunter and Winston speeding on their way to the little creek and to see the neighbor's horse!

Watch us, here we go, Mema!!

Winston is taking the lead!!

Then we have little Remington waiting in the wings for his turn with mema!!

Here It Comes Again!!

Seems as if we have had a lot of this kind of weather this Spring, and we had another round of it last night!  There were storm warnings, watches and alerts all afternoon.  Thankfully, though it looked really threatening we just got a quarter of an inch of rain and some wind!

Here it comes!! Pretty scarey looking coming in!

Here comes the rain!

Can't tell it really well on this pic, but was interesting to watch the rain moving in over thie wheat field. Looked like fog hovering just over the field as it moved this way!

Impromptu Weiner Roast Mother's Day evening!  Hadn't planned this, but was such a nice evening for it!

Mailbox cover Bob made me for Mother's Day!! I love it!!

One Of Our Georgeous Fairview Sunsets

Bob's garden boxes he made, so we don't have to stoop, squat, or just generally ruin our backs anymore!! Love these, so handy to work in!!

We're getting a new neighbor just southeast of us!! A local pharmacist is having a Richardson home built.

Mama Kildeer and her four babies who hatched from the eggs in the above picture!! Cute, cute little birds, and they are up and running as soon as they are born!

Love My Flowers!!

Random Pics Of Some Recent Happenings!!

Random pics of some recent activities!  I will post captions later when I have more time.  With spring finally getting here I find myself getting busier everyday!! So glad to see all the green, and the yellow around the countryside is beautiful!!

Little Miss (neighbor kitty) coming to call for her daily bowl of milk!!

Some of the following pics show the devastation of the tornado at Canton Lake a couple of years ago and also the result of OKC draining so much water out of the lake due to the drought.  So hard to look at some of these pics!  It will take a long time for the lake to be back to what it once was!

Sandy Cove Beach, lots of sand, not much water!
Thunder Road is still a pretty drive though!
Sparkling Water & Wind Generators
Need lots of water in the river!!
You can tell how wide it is when water is up to normal!
Sad looking trees on the Canadian side of the lake!
Mama keeping an eye on her little ones!
Near the near the boat dock on the Canadian side of the lake.

Looks like he's ready to fight!
